Hi, I did a modal analysis of a 2d plate. I generated a .pch file. Now if I open this file in notepad, I see three columns of data for every mode. Are these columns the x,y,z coordinates of the corresponding modeshape? I am asking this because I would like to plot the modeshape in MATLAB. I tried plotting it but I did not get a proper shape. At first I thought that every row corresponds to the coordinates of a node in the mesh. But later I observed that for every mode, the number of rows in the notepad file is different. This is what made me doubt about it. So what exactly does a pch file contain in the case of a modal analysis? It would be of great help if you can suggest me any other way to plot modeshapes in MATLAB using some result file from my analysis in Hyperworks. regards, Vachan
Hi, probably this question is super simple but I spent 2 hours searching the whole tcl commands for an option to querry the coodinates of a node which I can not find. You know how to do this? Thanks and best regards, Merula
Hi all, I have a deformed surface (a mode shape) obtained by Normal modes analysis. I want to extract the coordinates of all the nodes that lie along a line on the surface of this deformed shape. In HyperView , I have used the section view (at y=273 mm, see below) to see the cross section. By using right click --> quick query and clicking on the nodes, I can see the coordinates of each node (as shown in the figure that I attached below) along the line on this deformed shape. Is there a way to get a list of the coordinates of all the nodes along this line? My aim is to plot this shape later to compare with another result using MATLAB. regards, Vachan
