Hello, i am new to ansys and dont have much idea about this software, i just used it to calculate the harmonic response of simplest beam by watching the youtube video and i thought that's it what i need to continue my work in matlab. but now my teacher said something which i don't understand. because i dont know the how deep is the ansys work due to lack of knowledge about this software. please have a look and help me explain what my teacher is asking for.

My topic: control of Flexible manipulator (SDOF)

i made mathematical model, made simplest geometry in ansys, and got the harmonic response so i could use the natural frequency as parameter value for the controller which i need to make in MATLAB.

then my teacher asked me to link up my ansys analysis to the system parameters. (How? what parameters is he talking about) i asked him is he talking about natural frequency, inertia, deformation!

and this is what he replied instead of clear answer "Some of the parameters must be obtained from Ansys analysis. You will have to show us the process. How did you get the dynamic model of the mechanical part? What's the use of the Ansys analysis if you can not use it to derive your dynamic model?""

after reading this reply i am more confuse than ever. can anyone tell me what kind of parameters is he talking about?

look at the picture, simplest possible small beam with no extra complication. so what parameters could he be talking about?
