CAR CHASSIS

## NAS122, Workshop 16, August 2005

NAS122, Workshop 16, August 2005
MODAL FREQUENCY ANALYSIS OF A CAR CHASSIS

 Problem Description
 For this problem, a unit force is applied to an engine mount on the
car. The model is submitted to MSC.Nastran for a modal frequency
response analysis with a modal damping of 1%. After the analysis
is completed, the user will be asked to plot a XY Plot of
displacement vs. frequency at various locations to view the effect of
the load on the car over range of frequencies.

MODAL FREQUENCY ANALYSIS OF A CAR CHASSIS

##  Suggested Exercise Steps

1. Import the car geometry from a Nastran Input File.
2. Create a set of RBE2 to represent the engine mount.
3. Set up a Time Dependent Load Case.
4. Create a frequency dependent field.
5. Assign a unit force load to the independent node of the RBE2
created for the engine mount.
6. Submit the model for a Normal Modes analysis.
7. Attach the XDB result file after the analysis is completed.
8. Create a graph of frequency vs. displacement of three locations on
the car.
