Analysis > Static Analysis performs the static analysis of the model. You should set the appropriate analysis options before running this command. To do that, just click Analysis > Analysis Options.

The following dialog is displayed showing the progress of the solver.

The solver first solves all linear load combinations, then all nonlinear load combinations. If the model contains compression-only or tension-only springs, every load combination is a nonlinear load combination. Otherwise, only P-Delta load combinations are nonlinear. The nonlinear load combinations are solved iteratively and therefore may require considerable solution time.

You may abort the solving process by pressing ESC if a non-sparse solver is used.
