Hi @Roy Duan

Yes, you can perform PreTension Modal analysis through HM-OptiStruct using STATSUB (PRELOAD) case control command.

 

You need to create two load steps, the first step can be Linear Static analysis

 

In the second load step which is Normal modes, pick the previous Linear Static analysis under STATSUB(PRELOAD) as shown below:

 

SUBCASE 1
    ANALYSIS = STATICS

SUBCASE 2
    ANALYSIS = MODES
    STATSUB(PRELOAD) = 1
    SPC = 2
    METHOD = 3
