Using Motion results as a Function

Hi All,

 

I would like to know if the following is possible... I have a shaft rotating as a result of applied torque which causes the angular velocity to change with time. I can plot the AV vs Time and export that to a .CSV file and read the AV at a specific time, eg 100 rad/s @ 4 seconds. I would like to use this value to apply a motor that will stop the shaft in 2 seconds, eg from 100 rad/s @ 4 seconds to 0 rad/s @ 6 seconds.

 

Exporting works for this, but is tedious if I run multiple configurations and/or studies as the AV will keep changing. Is there a way to use analysis results to do a function in the same study?
