To instruct the program to evaluate the modal damping values from the first two
Loading ribbon tab, select the
Modal Damping tool in the
Dynamic Specifications group.
The Modal Damping dialog opens.
- Select the Evalute option.
Max values to evaluate damping values for each
The minimum damping value is used for the first two modes. This is also used to evaluate the damping coefficients for subsequent modes based on the first two modal frequencies. If any evaluated damping is greater than the specified maximum value, then the maximum damping is used instead. Refer to Evaluate Damping for additional details.
