Modal Analysis of a Rotor Blade Using Simpack

  1. Jun 5, 2015 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I am relatively new to Simpack and would appreciate some help with getting started. Basically I am trying to obtain the displacement of a rotor blade as it rotates (I already have the model). I want to have the displacements of each modal shape along the entire blade radius. Now with Simpack I can conduct a Modal Analysis but as my blade is made of a only single flexible body it only gives me the information I want at its center of gravity.

    Does anyone know how to get Simpack to give me the modal displacement along the entire blade span?

    Many thanks, Dorit
