interpretation of buckling/necking

Recommended Posts

Hello at all,


 


i made an analysis of a wireframe of a formula student car and created some loadcases for buckling.


 


In HyperView there are some negative and some positive magnitudes for F (for buckling mode 4).


I´m quite sure that this is the factor λ.


So i thought if λ>0  (positiv) there is no buckling and if λ<0 (negativ) then there is buckling.


 


Now i noticed, in every case where are the negative magnitudes, then a tension rod is buckling or deforming and when there is a positive magnitude then a pressure bar is buckling. I thought only rods/bars under pressure can buckle.


 


My problem is to interpret these cases.


Could it be that the buckling of a tension rod is a kind of neckling???


And when it is a kind of neckling, how to give an interpretation of the buckling?


Why are tension rods are deforming in my buckling analysis?


 


I hope you can help me.


 


Regards,


Rizzo

Hello,


 


negative modes mean a change of sign of the loads. If your structure can buckle at this "negativ" loads, then you have of course this modes.


To prevent this (although they are real), put a value of 0.0 or 0.1 to V1 at the EIGRL card. (Optistruct / Nastan)


 


Best regards,


Mario

Hi,


 


As Mario said with V1= blank in EIGRL card, at the value is negative and it signifies buckling tendency at load reversal.


 


With V1=0 in EIGRL card prevents calculating negative buckling
