When running Time History analysis are they able to get restraint reactions?


Open the example time history model that comes with AutoPIPE:


Perform a complete time history analysis and check the "Support" tab on the Results grids for M1 load case:

Yes, a time history can produce support loads. 

Reason for no loads on segment A, the forces generated by the transient are not restrained by any of the supports bearing directions.
