Shear Flow Test Model with Inertia Relief

Creator
Creator

Hello All, please find below a simple shear flow test model with inertia relief, but the model fails when run with:

^^^ USER FATAL MESSAGE 9137 (SEKRRS) Linear Statics
^^^ RUN TERMINATED DUE TO EXCESSIVE PIVOT RATIOS IN MATRIX KLL.

 

Wondering if you have any feedback.

 

Model:

Also tried to include an RBAR element and used a SUPORT entry at the new node 5, and without GRDPNT parameter, same error:

Even with an edge member rod area of 0.1 in^2 (r = 0.18"), the model still fails with excessive pivot ratios...

reading the file I think you are using inertia releif ,-1. Am I right?. Set up to -2 "automatic" and try it

Thank you for your reply, yes if I use INREL -2, and no SUPORT card and GRDPNT cards parameter, it works, of course the displacement are huge as my model is only a 2.0" square for testing. But If I need a spcific location about which the INREL balancing needs to happen, then this solution will not work. Maybe I need to update the model to be a bit more realistic and try again.. below is the model that works although not realistic.

Then I guess you are not constraining properly the model. (I did not check your model).

 

The recomemnded method is automatic inertia relief.

 

"The first method is to specify the SUPORT entry explicitly by including “PARAM,INREL,-1” in the Bulk Data Section. • The second method (recommended) is to let NX Nastran select the SUPORT degrees of freedom automatically by including “PARAM,INREL,-2” in the Bulk Data Section. An optional “PARAM,GRDPNT,x”— where x is a grid point ID— can be specified in the model. If “PARAM,GRDPNT,x” is used, the loads and accelerations will be summed about this point. If “PARAM,GRDPNT,x” is not specified, then the loads and accelerations will be summed about the origin of the basic coordinate system."

 

With inertia relief  method it does not matter where you are setting the supports. You should get the same strains/stresses once it is properly removed the six solid rigid movements.

 

Then with grdpnt you get the force balance at location you want.

OK thanks for your reply, this model is quite simple actually, the loading is also in a single plane along the top edge, although applied at a single node. In real life, there will be no constraints for an inflight load case for an aircraft though..
