I want to solve a modal analysis of a geometry that it is embedded in a fluid, but I want to avoid an FSI model.
I read that viscous damping could be the type of damping representing "a system immersed in a fluid" so, it would be useful if you can provide me some help/advise in how to do it.
I am testing two options to do this, but I am not sure if it is possible or I am doing something wrong. The idea Is to convert the fluid to some spring-dashpot model
1. For the stiffness part (spring) I create an elastic boundary condition defined by the Elastic Foundation Stiffness and I am wondering if it is possible via APDL to include some damping properties in the elastic support
2. I am trying to define the Rayleigh parameters in the menu of the modal analysis (Analysis settings - Solver controls - damped yes and then define them in damping controls. But when I am defining some random values for alpha and beta, I got always an erroneous solution of the modal analysis where I have some modes, but they are all in 0 Hz. (Not only the six degree of freedom, all)
I hope if you can help me in how to define the fluid in a modal analysis and, moreover, if you have some values that could be good for fluids. I don't find any information about it.
Thanks in advance for your help

Acoustic Fluid elements may be what you're looking for. An example here is for a modal analysis of a ring submerged in water. You could try adding viscous properties in fluid elements for some damping though be careful of how it is applied.

Hi! Thank you for your answer but I work in Workbench. Is there any example available in Workbench?
I would appreciate it! Thanks!
(*sorry, when I wrote via APDL I meant including code in workbench like this example: https://www.simutechgroup.com/tips-and-tricks/fea-articles/143-a-normal-and-tangential-elastic-foundation-in-workbench-mechanical)

Thanks for the information of the acoustics ACT. I am not familiar with it and I need time to understand what is doing and what I can do. Meanwhile, my first idea was more simple than a FSI. Is it possible to do it with viscous damping defining Rayleigh parameters? I tried to use them in the modal and the results are really weird. I got always an erroneous solution of the modal analysis where I have some modes, but they are all in 0 Hz. (Not only the six degree of freedom, all)
