I have time history of nonlinear dynamic analysis file to hypergraph and the various energy curves w.r.t time.
I am unable to interpret energy curves like ( total energy, kinetic energy, internal energy, hourglass energy)
How could I get confirm if my simulation results are correct by the means of these curves.
One more thing, in many FEA books (such as practical aspects of FEA) they talk wrt Potential energy but there are no such plots for potential energy in global variables.
Please suggest me to reach to the conclusions.
