Yes, take a sinusoidal acceleration with 100Hz as an example , you can click on the right end of the input field of Magnitude and then select ‘Function’ to enter the acceleration profile generally sine curve “sin(2*3.1415926*100*time)”. See attached picture below. You can select either Degree or Radians from the pull-down menu Units in Mechanical GUI. You can also define how many points are used to get the tabular data of the function. Program will calculate the tabular input automatically based upon these input.
