      I have been trying to create a Campbell diagram for a torsional vibration study I have been doing. I found this tutorial: 

      I also found this, which I'm assuming is Ansys official and using exactly the same process as the above video:

      At about 10:54 it mentions loading in a ADPL file in .inp format. I have searched for the specific file online (Rotordynsetup.inp) and find Chinese torrents of tutorials for version 13.0. I have attempted to re-write the text from the video into a text file and then saved it as a .inp

      My questions are: can I find this file somewhere? Would Ansys have an archive of older Tutorials that I could access this file?

      Is what I'm doing correct (writing in notepad and saving as .inp)? Would someone be willing to look over the text file to see if I have copied correctly?

      Does anyone have experience with producing Rotordynamic outputs in regards to torsional vibration?

      I am moving this question to the 'Structural Mechanics' thread so it gets more visibility. Good luck!

      Hi Ray,

        You can find the verification examples in the help.

        I think you might find VM247 and VM254 helpful. Note that the input decks with commands are provided there as well.

      Hi Sandeep,
