Transient Dynamic Analysis in ANSYS Mechanical

A transient dynamic analysis is used to determine the response of a structure subjected to a time-dependent loading considering inertia and damping effects. It is often referred to as a time-history analysis. At Release 14.0, ANSYS Mechanical can perform a time-transient analysis using the full method or the modal superposition method. The full method uses the full system matrices to calculate the transient response at each solution point. The mode-supe method scales the mode shapes and sums them to capture the dynamic response.

This webinar will explain how to perform a time-transient analysis in Mechanical 14.0 using the full and mode-supe methods.
