TAGGED: ansys-apdl, fluid-structure, modal-analysis

I d like asking suggestion about the following matter. I am performing a unsymmetric modal analysis of a tank filled with fluid. Modal shapes of the fluid are convective (e.g. 0.1Hz~1Hz) and impulsive (e.g. 2Hz~20Hz). The problem is that the convective modes are a lot (1000 modes?) therefore I cannot calculate convective and impulsive modal shapes of the fluid (and structure) in one simulation because I would end up having thousands of modal shapes.
--> There is any way to skip and/or select a range of frequencies in the unsymmetric modal analysis?
Currently I am using the following commands:
MODOPT, UNSYM, 20, 0.01, 1,,, BOTH (for the convective modal shapes)
MODOPT, UNSYM, 200, 2, 20,,, BOTH (for the impulsive modal shapes)
--> There is a way to calculates modal shapes in two frequencies range in the same simulations? (e.g. 0.1Hz~1Hz and e.g. 2Hz~20Hz)

You can select one frequency range in one analysis.

Hi Dr. Khemka,
Thank you really much for your answer. Maybe you are able to help me with this related topic as well.
I use *[GET, EF_X, MODE, counter, EFFM, , DIREC, X] to get EFFM for each modal shape. However, some of them give me EFFM=0. Is it normal for an [MODOPT, UNSYM, 20, 0.01, 1,,, BOTH] analysis? Never happen to me for any traditional (symmetric) modal analysis. Also, if I do not use [BOTH] I get a sum of EFFM that is much larger than the total mass of the model.
Thank you, Pierluigi
