General Constraints

Constrain displacement of faces, edges, vertices, or spots in Modal analysis.

  1. In the Project Tree, click on a Modal analysis branch to open the Analysis Workbench.
  2. On the workbench toolbar, click the (Constraints) icon.
  3. Specify which type of entity will have constraints applied.
  4. In the modeling window, click to select specific parts on the model.
  5. Optional: If applying to Faces, you can activate the Add tangent faces checkbox.
  6. Specify the coordinate system to which the force/displacement will be applied.
    The default is set to the Global coordinate system, which is automatically created upon geometry import.
  7. Specify an axes along which constraints will be assigned.
  8. Click OK.
