Numerical Solution — Lesson 6

In order to obtain modal shapes and their corresponding frequencies, we must insert a total deformation graphic for each mode we asked the solver to find in Analysis Settings. Do this by right clicking Solution > Insert > Deformation > Total.  

Right click the newly created Total Deformation tab and rename it Mode 1. We must assign each total deformation to a specific mode. Do this by selecting Mode 1 and setting the Mode number under Definition to 1. Repeat this process for modes 2 through 5. The details window for Mode 1 deformation is pictured below.

After deformation 1 through 5 are added, click on Solve to complete the solution.
