This Tech Talk will be of interest to anyone faced with the challenges of simulating structures subjected to dynamic loads. It will show you what Abaqus/Standard linear dynamics can do for you.
Abaqus/Standard has powerful linear dynamics capabilities. This Tech Talk will introduce you to the most important ones. Topics that will be highlighted are natural mode extraction, transient modal dynamics, steady-state dynamics, and damping. During the presentation, you will learn that Abaqus/Standard has several methods for real natural mode extraction, including a method call AMS which efficiently extracts large numbers of modes of large structures. You will also learn that Abaqus/Standard extracts complex modes. You will be introduced to what damping definitions are possible and you will see that Abaqus/Standard has the sophisticated damping definitions that may be needed to make your linear dynamics simulations more realistic. After this Tech Talk, you will better understand the linear dynamics features of Abaqus/Standard.
