5.5 The Step Section
The Step section can be used to add additional analysis steps to the model. These steps are executed after the initial model has completed. This section cannot be used to modify the steps defined in the parent file. See chapter 6↓ for more information on the Step section or multi-step analyses in general.
Using the Step section, additional boundary conditions, loads, contact definitions, etc. can be added, just like in a regular model input file. The syntax is the same as the Step section in the regular model input file. The only difference is that the type attribute is required to define the type of analysis. The type has the same role as the Module section in the regular FEBio input file.
