Buckling Analysis


Hi All,


I want to perform buckling analysis on this model. I have meshed it with tet elements. All I have is a constraint set which basically fixes the base and some body loads and mass of the whole system. But I am getting some fatal errors like 614(IFP 1D), 9025(IFPL), user info message 4425.


Kindly tell me the process. I think I am missing some things here. I have never performed the buckling analysis before. I can send the file too.


Thank You

See example #3 in Femap Help for step by step instructions. Also, take a look at chapter 22 of the Nastran Users Guide for discussion on theory etc from the solver point of view.
