I have a short question and hope, the answer is also short:
How do I analyse the Real eingenmodes of a pre-stressed system?
I would like to get th natural frequencies of a system with bolt preloads.
What is the correct way to set up the simulation?
All answers are wellcome.
Best regards, Michael
Solved! Go to Solution.
You need a subcase containing the static preloads prior to the modal subcase.
In the modal subcase, include a "STATSUB=n", where n is the ID of the previous static subcase. This augments the stiffness for the modal subcase with the differential stiffness due to the static subcase.
See the QRG for more information on STATSUB.
thank You for answering. I will try it in the way You described.
Last question: What do You mean with "QRG"?
