      How is a half-sine shock impact load modeled in Cosmosworks? I have been able to model a "Drop Test" but the inputs are drop height, acceleration, and surface hardness (type), and orientation. I think friction effects on the surface can also be included. Is there a way to correlate such a study to typical shock input parameters of <x> g @ <y>msec?

      I have also noticed that the Nonlinear load option allows the program to read in a time-based curve, but I cannot seem to edit it.

      The load is: 100 g for 15 msec.
