Workshop 5.2 Prestressed Modal Analysis Prestressed Modal Analysis Workshop 5.2 - Goals Workshop Supplement Our goal is to simulate the modal response of the tension link (shown below) in both a stressed and unstressed state. Specifically, we will load the link with a 4000 N tensile load and compare the natural frequency to that of the unloaded component. ANSYS Workbench - Simulation August 26, 2005 Inventory #002266

WS5.2-2 Prestressed Modal Analysis Workshop 5.2 - Start Page From the launcher start Simulation. Choose Geometry > From File . . . and browse to the file tension_link.x_t. When DS starts, close the Template menu by clicking the X in the corner of the window. ANSYS Workbench - Simulation Workshop Supplement

#002266 WS5.2-9 Prestressed Modal Analysis . . . Workshop 5.2 Postprocessing As shown below the prestressed results should show an increase in frequencies. Note: the actual frequencies may vary slightly from those shown due to meshing and machine differences. ANSYS Workbench - Simulation Workshop Supplement August 26, 2005 Inventory #002266 WS5.2-10 Prestressed Modal Analysis

. . . Workshop 5.2 Postprocessing Although not a requirement, good practice recommends that we include a stress calculation in our prestressed branch to insure that the component does not fail due to the applied load. 14. Highlight the solution branch in the Prestressed environment, RMB > Insert > Stress > Equivalent (von-Mises). 14 15. Once again issue a solve from this branch to update the new result. 15 ANSYS Workbench - Simulation Workshop Supplement August 26, 2005 Inventory #002266

WS5.2-11 Prestressed Modal Analysis . . . Workshop 5.2 - Postprocessing By comparing the reported stresses to the materials yield values (Engineering Data) we can assess the components performance with respect to the applied load. Note, it may be necessary to calculate other results (deformation, strain, etc.) depending on the application in which the part is used.
