Notice: The Ansys Innovation Space (AIS) will undergo scheduled maintenance from June 6th to June 18th. During this time, all AIS sites will be available in read-only mode with no login function available. This means you will not be able to create any new forum posts on the Ansys Learning Forum, but you can still browse existing ones. Also, the course tracking on Ansys Innovation Courses (AICs) will be unavailable during this period. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Single-Point Response Spectrum Analysis Using Ansys Mechanical

Conducting a time-history dynamic analysis of a structure under short, nondeterministic, and time-dependent loading conditions can be highly time-consuming and computationally expensive. Response spectrum analysis is an alternative method to approximate the maximum response for such cases. It is a mode superposition analysis, which means it’s important to select the proper mode combination method, as this can affect the prediction of the peak response. Also, understanding the difference between periodic and rigid responses helps us to properly combine the modes together. Additionally, in the case that we do not have sufficient effective mass extracted from the modal analysis, we may need to account for the contribution of the missing mass. In this course, we will explain how a response spectrum analysis is conducted, along with the important considerations and techniques in mode combination.
