This example is meant to show how easy it is to import a structure from PTC Creo® into Z88Aurora® and how to perform a natural frequency analysis afterward.
Natural frequencies are important in the development of many technical products and buildings. The designer has to make sure that the natural frequency is not within the working range, which means that these frequencies must be either so small or large that they become irrelevant or they must be quickly run through. Otherwise this can lead to the worst case, which is a resonance catastrophe, as shown in the following videos:
For this, a very simple part is built in PTC Creo® Parametric and imported into the simulation software using the STEP format.
Then it is just necessary to define the material, boundary conditions are not required, but can be added. After the calculation, the natural frequencies are displayed. Furthermore the different settings can be viewed with the corresponding displacements.
