CYC_PRINC


Christian Semler (Mechanical Dynamics Ltd.)


"Here is an input file which computes principal stresses for a particular sector from a cyclic symmetry analysis, on all corner nodes, without using the /CYCEXPAND command. This enables the use of the *VGET command, so further manipulations are possible."

HARM_FULL_EX


David Haberman (CSI)


Direct displacement method (full harmonic with applied displacment). Modal analysis then frequency sweep. Results are scaled to get acceleration, displacement, and g's vs frequency.

HARM_LMM_CLUST


David Haberman (CSI)


Harmonic linear Sweep Example. Modal super position with the large mass method was the solution technique. The cluster option was used to allow for enough resolution around the natural freq.

HARMONIC_AND_RANDOM


Sheldon Imaoka (ANSYS, Inc.)


This zip file contains a simple example  single input PSD table for base excitation of a fictitious structure  run as both random vibration and harmonic response analyses.
The user can review the contents of the two input files and see how one can relate harmonic analyses (the transfer function) to the response PSD in random vibration analyses. (Actually, one can also look it up in any dynamics textbook, but this just shows how one can do it in ANSYS.)
(See also TFUN undocumented command to get the transfer function after a random vibration analysis.)

HARMONIC_CMS


Sheldon Imaoka (ANSYS, Inc.)


Simple beam example showing procedure for using CMS (component mode synthesis). Same results for the full model (no CMS) and the CMS model.

PLATE_CMS


Sheldon Imaoka (ANSYS, Inc.)


Example showing how to use CMS (component mode synthesis) with Response Spectrum analysis (singlepoint response spectrum).
The nonsuperelement ("full model") input is here, so you can compare the results to see that they are essentially the same.

RESVEC


Sheldon Imaoka (ANSYS, Inc.)


This input file is a simple demonstration of the usefulness of the residual vector method in capturing accurate higherfrequency response in modesuperposition analyses.
In the input file, change the first two parameters as follows:
 For results with many modes included and no residual vector, set MY_FREQUENCY = 1 and MY_RESVECTOR = 0
 For results with few modes included and no residual vector, set
MY_FREQUENCY = 0 and MY_RESVECTOR = 0
 For results with few modes included and with residual vectors, set MY_FREQUENCY = 0 and MY_RESVECTOR = 1
By performing the above, one will see that even at the higherfrequency response, the residual vector method will give results comparable to including many modes even if the user has a smaller set of modes. An Excel spreadsheet is also available, which tabulates the results (notice the difference in results for higher frequencies  this is where, without residual vector method and fewer modes, one may not accurately capture higherfrequency response).
Note that the residual vector method includes stiffness of higher frequencies, but one should still have enough modes to characterize the mass of the structure (i.e., it's not a panacea for insufficient modes). Also, use of ANSYS 11.0 or higher is required.

REVOLVE


Sheldon Imaoka (ANSYS, Inc.)


Simple example showing a disk loaded with initial velocity. Disk rotation is defined by MPC184, so this must be run in version 7.0 and above. (Disk rotation could have been defined by other methods such as deformablerigid contact, but this was meant to illustrate a particular technique.)

SPRS_MPRS


Sheldon Imaoka (ANSYS, Inc.)


The attached zip file includes a simple example demonstrating the procedure to perform a singlepoint response spectrum (SPRS), where the excitation in 3 direction is applied together (using SRSS combination), not independently.
The procedure for multipoint response spectrum (MPRS) is included as well for the same situation.
An Excel spreadsheet shows that the results obtained for this simple model is the same for both methods (compare the mode coefficients for each squared mode in the spreadsheet).
