February 3, 2021 at 1:44 pmRHYLANESubscriberHello, I have a structure made up of two concrete blocks laid on layers of rubber. The two blocks are linked by a steel spacer.nI need to insert concrete block loss factor (0.175), rubber layer (0.2) and metal spacer (0.02) but don't know how?nPlease help me.n
February 4, 2021 at 7:47 pmDave LoomanAnsys EmployeeIn ANSYS, the loss factor for a material is specified as the material property DMPS (Constant Structural Damping Coefficient.) The command to specify it would be MP,DMPS,(Mat Number),Value. In a piezoelectric analysis there is the material property LSST, but you don't sound like you are doing a piezoelectric analysis!n
February 5, 2021 at 1:46 pmRHYLANESubscriberThank you very much sir for your answer. just I would like to know how I can insert the loss factor in the case of the COMBIN14 elements in ANSYS Workbench, knowing that for these elements no material is defined.nN.B: the COMBIN 14 elements are used to model the caouatchouc.n
