### UniformExcitation output analysis

Posted:

**Mon Dec 23, 2019 3:00 pm**Hi everyone,

I am performing some transient analysis on a pile foundation recently.

I use the "UniformExcitation" to apply the acceleration by fixing the bottom boundary.

But, I am confused about the output. The opensees said when using "UniformExcitation", the results are relative value.

What does this represent?

If anyone is familiar with this, could you please explain to me.

Many thanks,

Huan
