Mechanical loadcases

Mechanical loads

Add load

Adds a load to the loadcase, which can then be configured.

Tabular data enabled

Enables the use of data stored in the data tables to define loads (e.g. transient setpoints)


Define the direction of the force/moment. By entering 1 in a corresponding direction means that a force/moment is applied in this direction scaled by 1.




Force in axial direction


Force in transversal direction


Force in normal direction


Torque around axial direction


Moment around transversal direction


Moment around normal direction

Add component acceleration

Add a component acceleration load case. For example, an acceleration of -9,81 m/s2 in w-direction defines the gravitational force to the selected component.

Add composition acceleration

Add a composition acceleration. The acceleration is used for the whole composition and not for a component only, as in add component acceleration. For example, an acceleration of -9,81 m/s2 in w-direction defines the gravitational force to the composition.

Add controller command

Add a controller command load. Either a position or a velocity command value can be defined acting on the selected controller.

Add rail profile

Add a rail profile to a moving interface. This load adds a displacement between master and slave interface depending on the position of the carriage along the rail. The profile displacments are handled in the same manner as with link spacers (internal conversion to force & moment preloads using link stiffnesses). The corresponding displacement degrees of freedom will be equal to the input values only when no external load is present.

Average over car length

This option enables & disables the carriage length averaging. This affects the profile load’s normal translational displacement (in direction of the profile normal dir vector, see below) and the pitch rotational displacement (around the axis normal to the travel direction and profile normal dir). The behaviour is as follows:


Normal Translation Displacement Input

Pitch Rotation Displacement Input


taken directly from the profile value at the centre of the carriage

always zero (i.e., the resulting preload moment is also always zero)


averaged over the entire carriage length (using 20 sampling points)

derived using a profile trendline along the carriage length (using 20 sampling points)

Selected component and rail interface

Select the component and the rail where the profile should be added.

Profile normal dir

Define the normal direction of the rail profile.

Edit table

Define rail profile using excel or the table directly.




Click on Table


Right-click into newely opened table and click on Copy header


Open Excel and paste the header in a new sheet


Define the time steps in the Time column


Define the values at every time step in the Value column


Copy the whole table including the header Time and Value


Right-click into the MORe-Table and click on Paste


Click on Plot to check if table was copied correctly

Additionally, the number in Number of rows can be changed. This allows to directly define the transient load data in the table.

Important: The headers of the table imported from Excel have to match the ones given in the MORe-Table. Furthermore, tables that have more than 1000 rows can not be copied into MORe.


By right-clicking on the number in the first column, the load can be deleted.
