Response analysis of a cylinder


I am having a Cylindrical structure where, i want to run a harmonic response analysis to find the transfer function.
I have run a free free condition Normal mode analysis to find out the axial mode (along the length) The frequency is at 2500 Hz and i have run another normal mode analysis where i have constrained 5 DOF (Releasing the axial DOF) hear also i have got the Axial frequency around 2500 Hz.
But when i want to run them for response analysis, i have created a RBE2 element connecting at the bottom surface of the cylinder to a point which will simulate the base excitation, so I have constrained 5 DOF and I have Given 1 Enforced motion at the point, As soon i solve sol103 response analysis, the result is different from the normal mode analysis the axial frequency is shifted to 900Hz and when i plot the XY graph the resonance is in 900Hz not at 2500Hz

plz help to solve this problem

thank you


Re: Response analysis of a cylinder

First question: what does your handcalcl give as a frequency?

Re: Response analysis of a cylinder



I am Getting 2500 hz in handcalulation and even impact hammer testing is also giving the same frequency of 2500Hz
