4. 4. Problem Details: Problem statement: - To determine the lowest six non-zero frequencies and associated mode shapes for a rectangular plate for three different thickness of the plate. Geometry of the plate: - Rectangular Plate with length 2a, width 2b and thickness h. - γ = a/b=2 - ξ = h/b = 1/4, 1/16, 1/64 - a = 20 mm, b = 10 mm, h = 2.5mm, 0.625mm, 0.15625mm - Thus, the dimensions of the plate are as follows: o Length of the plate = 40mm o Width of the plate = 20mm o Thickness of the plate = 2.5mm, 0.625mm, 0.15625mm Material Properties of the plate: - ν = Poisson’s ratio = 0.05 - Material of the plate : Cast Iron - E = Modulus of Elasticity = 139.7GPa - ρ = Density = 7300 kg/m3 Boundary Conditions: - The two adjacent edges of the rectangular plate are fixed while the other two are free. Element Details: - The modal analysis is performed using two types of elements i.e. solid and shell. Now, we will go through the details of the modal analysis of the plate in case of the different thickness values as obtained on running the problem using ANSYS 12. 4|P ag e
5. 5. Modal Analysis using SOLID45: Meshing: - A 3-D model of the plate was created and the plate was meshed using SOLID45 element. - Properties of SOLID45: o SOLID45 is used for the 3-D modeling of solid structures. The element is defined by eight nodes having three degrees of freedom at each node: translations in the nodal x, y, and z directions. o The element has plasticity, creep, swelling, stress stiffening, large deflection, and large strain capabilities. - The mesh was refined per iteration using manual size control. Thus, the mesh was refined along all the three dimensions of the plate. Solver used for Modal Analysis: - The modal analysis was performed using the PCG Lanczos solver. Applying boundary conditions: - The two adjacent sides of the plate are fixed in x and y directions and all the four sides are constrained in z direction. Convergence Criteria: - Natural Frequency: For the problem to converge, the variation of all the six natural frequencies between two iterations should be less that 1%. Results: - Case 1 i.e. h = 2.5 mm: o It was observed that the frequency values go on decreasing as the mesh size is refined, thus, converging to the lowest frequency values. o The problem was converged in six iterations and their details of are as follows: 5|P ag e
