[SOLVED] Error using *STEP, PERTURBATION

Postby EkaitzEsteban » Mon Oct 08, 2018 1:35 pm

Hello,

I am trying to work with the perturbation card. Apparently, compressed frequency analysis can be done in calculix.


I use cantilever beam example and I add to the .inp file the following code:

Code: Select all

***********************************************************
** Node loads Constraints

*CLOAD

*END STEP # end static analysis

However, the following error is obtained:

FEM: No result object in active Analysis.

best regards,

Ekaitz.

EDIT: When performing a STATIC analysis density value of the material is left (in cantiveler beam for example) and this value is mandatory for performing Frequency Analysis

EXAMPLE CODE HERE:

Code: Select all

** written by FreeCAD inp file writer for CalculiX,Abaqus meshes
** highest dimension mesh elements only.

does ccx gives an error? If you press the run button the error should be printed in report window of FreeCAD.

Exactly, the error appears in the Report View

Thank you Jee-bee! I solved the problem including the density value in the material. The rest is exactly as explained in Calculix manual.

Did you generate the file with FreeCAD GUI, it should have been checked for density and give an error when it is missing? Or did you run an own input file?

Hi bernd,

I think that static analysis do not require density value because solely Young Modulus and poisson ratio parameters are required for determining the matrix of Hooke's law (isotropic materials). Therefore, density value is not written when using FreeCAD GUI for a static analysis.

However, frequency analysis requires density value for determining the mass matrix. The application of perturbation step in frequency requires to firstly make an static analysis and then calculix employs the results from static analysis for the frequency. In this second step, density value must be defined.
