I am doing the calibration of my model with the appendix B of the IAFP-07 ( Spanish Normative of Train Bridges) . The model represents a simple beam with a mobile point load, the problem is that in the start of the analysis I have displacements in the opposite direction of gravity. Also when I do the FFT of the time history of displacements for the center node, it is evident that there is a static displacement present at the start of the analysis.
I try to follow the rolling stock example, but it also has an static displacement at the beginning of the analysis. I realize this when I do an FFT for a displacement history with a specific velocity.
So my question is: Is there a way to tell the software (Teddy) to avoid converting mass to load at the beginning of the dynamic analysis? So in that way I can eliminate the static displacement.
Thanks for the help!
PS. I attach the Teddy code and the pictures of the FFT.
