  • Linear Steady State
  • Heat Transfer
  • Inertia Relief

A static structural analysis calculates the effect of steady (or static) loading conditions on a structure, while ignoring inertia and damping effects, such as those caused by time varying loads. A static analysis can include steady inertia loads (such as gravity and rotational velocity and accelerations), and time varying loads that can be approximated as static equivalent loads.
