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.

no the number and four values ... see my screen from dat file !

Re: extraction of negative eigenvalues

- start FreeCAD - load FEM 3D example - change to analysis type frequency - change from first 15 to first 8 frequencies - delete constraint fixed and constraint force - run analyisis - the imaginary part in Hz is missing - screen and file attached test.FCStd Box_Mesh.dat.txt Screenshot_20190706_125...

Re: Concrete branch ready for testing

Ah ok. Yes I didnt catch a potential NaN return from Calcilix, so that sounds like a good idea. However, anything downstream from this principal stress routine should be able to handle NaN values too. For example, what happens with this in VTK pipeline or VTK export?
