The FORCE module is used for external load cases where it is used to form the load force vector.

The external loads may correspond to impact forces, rotating machinery, or simple unit forces to be used to determine the impedance of a flexible foundation.

This module is not used for seismic problems, except for computing foundation impedances.

The FORCE module is optimized so that up to 500 case results are stored are used in a single SSI batch run for ANALYS, which will save substantial run time. Output files are subsequently labeled so that the individual results can be accessed easily.
