Non-Linear Shock Analysis

      Hello everyone!

      I am simulating a structure with a shock of 40g shock wave for a given time like 11 ms.

      Firstly when i encountered with this project I've used modal+transient(Mode superposition) and our customer responded our report with  "

      Material data is unsufficient for shock analyses since only the linear elastic material properties are used. Nonlinear material parameters must be handled for these type analyses. "

      So my question is what type of material data that I need and is it really differenciate results between nonlinear transient and modesuper position transient analysis? (I'm questioning I read equ. stress with MSUP is 0,5 Mpa but if i perform nonlinear transient would I see like 100 Mpa??) btw my model contains composite material too.

      Hi,

      Modal + transient can only handle linear analysis. If your material has any nonlinearity, such as elastoplastic or hyperelastic, then run your analysis only in transient.

      Thanks,

      Thank you for responding but as ı explained my question was how did customer decided material data unsufficient without nonlinear material data? my materials glass,aluminum,acrylic.At the end of MSUP analysis I got 0.1 Mpa stress so ıt's nothing so do ı really need to do transient analysis? with these results ı suppose ı wont see any non linearity?
