Tutorial 13 : Explicit to eigenvalue to implicit

conversion
Case description:
Topics covered:
Explicit to eigenvalue conversion
Eigenvalue to implicit conversion
Files required:
bracket_explicit.k
Step 1: Run the bracket model using LS-DYNA explicit
1. create a directory called "explicit" for "bracket_explicit.k"
2. run "bracket_explicit.k" using single precision LS-DYNA
3. launch LS-PrePost
4. File Open Binary Plot
5. open "\explicit\d3plot"
6. hold the Ctrl key and use the left mouse button to rotate the model to a suitable viewing
angle
7. FEMPostFringe Component
8. select "von mises stress" from the list
9. click the Play Ahead (Animate Forward) button in the bottom panel
10. note the stress contour that develops due to the prescribed displacement load

Step 2: Convert the model for eigenvalue analysis
1. create a directory called "eigenvalue"
2. copy "\explicit\bracket_explicit.k" to "\eigenvalue\bracket_eigenvalue.k"
3. launch LS-PrePost
4. File Open LS-Dyna Keyword File
5. open "bracket_eigenvalue.k"
6. FEMModel and PartKeyword Manager
7. click All
8. select "IMPLICIT_EIGENVALUE" from the list
9. click Edit
10. enter NEIG=10 in the KEYWORD INPUT popup form
11. click Accept
12. click Done

13. select "IMPLICIT_GENERAL" from the list
14. click Edit
15. enter IMFLAG=1 in the KEYWORD INPUT popup form
16. click Accept
17. click Done
18. File Save Keyword
19. overwrite "bracket_eigenvalue.k"

Step 3: Run an eigenvalue analysis using LS-DYNA
1. run "bracket_eigenvalue.k" using LS-DYNA
2. launch LS-PrePost
3. File Open Binary Plot
4. open "\eigenvalue\d3eigv"
5. hold the Ctrl key and use the left mouse button to rotate the model to a suitable viewing
angle
6. FEMPostFringe Component
7. click Ndv
8. select "result displacement" from the list
9. click the Play button in the bottom panel to animate Mode #1

Step 4: View other mode shapes
1. click Previous state /Next state in the animation controls to browse the various mode shapes
2. Mode #10 is shown in Figure

Step 5: Convert the model for implicit analysis
1. create a directory called "implicit"
2. copy "\eigenvalue\bracket_eigenvalue.k" to "\implicit\bracket_implicit.k"
3. launch LS-PrePost
4. File Open LS-DYNA Keyword File
5. open "bracket_implicit.k"
6. FENModel and PartKeyword Manager
7. click All
8. select "IMPLICIT_EIGENVALUE" from the list
9. click Edit
10. click Delete in the KEYWORD INPUT popup form

11. select "IMPLICIT_GENERAL" from the list
12. click Edit
13. enter DT0=0.001 in the KEYWORD INPUT popup form
14. click Accept
15. click Done

Step 6: Convert the model for implicit analysis (continued...)
1. select "IMPLICIT_AUTO" from the list
2. click Edit
3. enter IAUTO=1 in the KEYWORD INPUT popup form
4. click Accept
5. click Done

6. select "IMPLICIT_SOLUTION" from the list
7. click Edit
8. select NLPRINT=1 in the KEYWORD INPUT popup form
9. click Accept
10. click Done
11. File Save Keyword
12. overwrite "bracket_implicit.k"

Step 7:Run an implicit analysis using LS-DYNA implicit
1. run "bracket_implicit.k" using DOUBLE precision LS-DYNA
2. launch LS-PrePost
3. File Open Binary Plot
4. open "\implicit\d3plot"
5. hold the Ctrl key and use the left mouse button to rotate the model to a suitable viewing
angle
6. FEMPostFringe Component
7. select "von mises stress" from the list
8. click the Play button in the bottom panel
9. note the stress contour that develops due to the prescribed displacement load

Step 8: Compare stress values between explicit and implicit
runs
1. FEM Post ASCII
2. select "elout " from the list
3. click Load (loads "\implicit\elout")
4. select "Sh-1" and "Sh-2" from the middle list (hold down Ctrl for multiple select)
5. select "9-Effective Stress (v-m)" in the bottom list
6. click Main
7. click Plot


8. click File (located above the Load button in the side panel)
9. open "\explicit\elout"
10. select "Sh-1" and "Sh-2" from the middle list
11. select "9-Effective Stress (v-m)" in the bottom list
12. click PAdd
13. right-click Port1 in XY-plot Page Manager
14. click control
15. click icon of Set and change titles/axis labels
16. enter Plot Title: Implicit vs. Explicit Stress
17. enter Legend Title:Element id
18. enter X-Axes Label:Time\
19. enter Y-Axes Label:elout data
20. activate Modify Curve Legend
21. select "Sh-1 (ip=1)" and modify name to "implicit_sh1"(click Apply)
22. select "Sh-2 (ip=1)" and modify name to "implicit sh2"(click Apply)
23. select "Sh-1 Effective Stress (v-m) (ip=1)" and modify name to "explicit_sh1"(click Apply)
24. select "Sh-2 Effective Stress (v-m) (ip=1)" and modify name to "explicit_sh2"(click Apply)
