Re: FEM-Hydrostatic pressure constraint help/request

Alex, the translation of pressure to nodal forces is taken care of by Calculix. This is quite involved for curved surfaces. If you want to see how it is done you can have a look at the fcFEM source code. However, as I said, this should not be necessary. The DLOAD card only requires the pressure and ...

Buckling and Free Vibrations (without integrals or matrices)

An interesting challenge from Bernd (https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=37400&start=20#p319473) ... ... do you know some paper which explains all this without tons of integrals and matrix operations ... Attached an attempt at this for the interested reader. Buckling and Free Vibration...

Re: extraction of negative eigenvalues

I can confirm this is the case. Analysis of a rigid column on a rotational spring shows that the frequency eigenvalue depends as follows on the vertical load F: (Omega_F) ^ 2= (1 - F/FE) * (Omega_0) ^ 2 where FE is the Euler buckling load of the column. So the natural frequency reduces to zero as t...

Re: extraction of negative eigenvalues

4) The only case I can imagine where we could hit a similar issue with FreeCAD is when we load a part or structure with forces that exceed the elastic buckling load (but I would need to check the math of such a case to be sure) I can confirm this is the case. Analysis of a rigid column on a rotatio...

Re: extraction of negative eigenvalues

This is surprising and different from what I remember. I will look into it and compare to what I did for the bridge. great PS: yes the natural frequency in rad/s is the eigenvalue of the free vibration problem. than what is the column eigenvalue for? Do you know some paper which explains all this w...

EDIT: the natural frequency in rad/s is the square root of the eigenvalue of the free vibration problem.

I don’t understand. You have 5 values per line so the last one should be imaginary part in Hz as per my post.
no the number and four values ... see my screen from dat file !
