## Static Condensation – FEM Analysis

Background Theory With “condensation” is indicated a procedure adopted for the structural analysis to carry out a matrix of stiffness and load boundary conditions of a detailed finite model (DFEM), starting from a raw global finite model (GFEM). The DFEM … Continue reading

## Frequency Response – Nastran SOL 111

Frequency response is the quantitative measure of the output spectrum of a system or device in response to a stimulus, and is used to characterise the dynamics of the system. It is a measure of magnitude and phase of the … Continue reading

## Vibration Analysis – Nastran SOL 103

General Overview There are many reasons to compute the natural frequencies and mode shapes of a structure. One reason is to assess the dynamic interaction between a component and its supporting structure. For example for those parts nearby … Continue reading

## Non Linear Analysis SOL 106

In the most of cases the nonlinear effects in structures occur due to nonlinear material behavior and large deformations. Geometric nonlinearity becomes relevant when the structure is subjected to large displacement and rotation. Geometric nonlinearity effects are prominent in two … Continue reading

## Linear Buckling Analysis – SOL 105

Theoretical Background Buckling analysis assesses the stability characteristics dictating the integrity limit of a structure. Let us start with a linear equation of motion for a preloaded structure: where M,C, K and Kd are mass, viscous damping, material and differential stiffness … Continue reading
