Modal Participation Factor from Nastran

Hi all!

I would like to perform a durability simulation with the modal superposition tecnique. The problem is that I have no idea how to retrive MPFs from Nastran to perform the simulation.

Any suggestions?

Look at the MEFFMASS output, that is where you will be able to get what you want ...

Dear Hen,

 

by the tag I assume you want to do this with LMS Virtual.Lab:

 

In the Load Function Set, select Data Soure > Add a data File

Choose here the NASTRAN file format you have saved the MPF (Virtual Lab can read op2 or PUNCH)
