I have a simple 2-D square geometry with the length of 5 x 2 m. I need to assign a point load on the model to simulate wave propagation in the solid medium with Abaqus. the distance from the firing point and the reading point is 25 cm. I have used Gaussian wave with the frequency of 50kHz. The material property that I used is concrete and I have used Abaqus material, solid section, CPE4R element type, and dynamic explicit analysis. However, as you can see in the picture when I use point load (i.e C-load), there is a huge high-frequency noise, which should not be there! while the noise magnitude drastically decreases when same equivalent pressure (i.e. D-load) is used. I have to mention that, the noise decreases with wider D-Load. Even, when I use D-Load on just one element, which is very close to a point-load, the noise magnitude is significantly small. except for the noise, the rest of analysis is correct (P-wave, S-wave, and reflections are all on expected time and seems to be correct). Does anyone have any idea that what the problem is coming from? 

 

Thank you.

Hello,

 

CLOAD creates concentrated forces, where force is (mass*length/time2) while DLOAD specifies distributed loads. It is commonly used to create pressure which is (force*length2).

 

So, please make sure you want to apply force or pressure.

 

Thankyou

Thanks for your comment. But I believe your answer is not relevant to my question. Thank you.
