Tutorial 82: Natural Frequencies and Mode Shape of Composite Plate with Hole

Tutorial by Armin Yousefi Kanani

The modal analysis technique is used to determine the vibration characteristics (I,e, Natural frequencies and mode shapes) of linear elastic structures. Our goal is to determine the first 10 natural frequencies and mode shapes for the plate with the hole shown. In this tutorial, first we are going to model simple plate with hole in ACP tools then we are importing model into modal. In the next step, we will have short introduction to modal tools in ANSYS software and do simulation to find natural frequencies and mode shape of composite model.
 Creating Plate with Hole in ACP
