Hello everybody,

My name is Alan Barile and I am a civil engineering student in Brazil.

Does anyone have a simple example of transient analysis using mode superposition?

I created a simple example using a beam with one end fixed and the other free. I used a sinusoidal load and wish to get the vertical displacement at the free end, but I'm not able to make it work. Any suggestion?


Best regards,

Hello Alan,

I see you have an APDL script there. I am a novice at APDL, so I hope someone else can help you with that.

I did a simple cantilever Transient Mode Superposition using Workbench and wrote about it in this discussion.

Best regards,

Hi Alan,

Please see the University of Alberta's example.

Kind regards,
