Can the effects of temperature-dependent elastic modulii be included in a modal analysis? The docs seem to imply that this is not possible, since temperature is not an allowable load in a modal analysis.

You are correct that the temperature loads, i.e. BFE/TUNIF, are ignored for the modal analysis; however, the temperature-dependent properties are still evaluated at the appropriate temperature before performing the analysis.
