Analysis Types Supported

The following analysis types support rotating structure analysis using a stationary reference frame:

  • Static (ANTYPE, STATIC)

    Quasi-static analysis is used to obtain the displacements and stresses of the structure subjected to the gyroscopic moment.

  • Modal (ANTYPE,MODAL)

  • Linear transient (ANTYPE,TRANS)

    For a transient analysis involving a rotating structure with a stationary reference frame, support for a start or stop simulation is available. Issue the KBC command to ramp the rotational velocity.

  • Harmonic (ANTYPE,HARMIC)

    To include unbalance or general asynchronous rotating forces in a harmonic analysis, use the SYNCHRO command.
