Rotation Acceleration Results Quantity
Creo Simulate supports this quantity for dynamic time and frequency analyses with full results. Be aware that:
For the Rotation Acceleration quantity, you must select Rotations as an analysis output when you define the analysis.
Your model must be a shell or beam model or a mixed solid model with beams or shells present.
You cannot specify rotation as a quantity for 2D plane stress models.
The Rotation Acceleration quantity is not available in FEM mode.
When you select Rotation Acceleration from the Quantity drop-down list, Creo Simulate may alter the selections on the Quantity tab. Some selections do not appear unless the item is part of the design study you choose. The possible selections include:
Amplitude or Phase—Display either the amplitude or the phase of the velocity results. This option is available only if you select the display type as Fringe, Graph, or Model. Also the component of rotation acceleration you select must be X, Y, or Z.
* Phase and Amplitude are applicable only for dynamic frequency analysis.
Component—Select a component. The directional components that appear on this drop-down list change if you change the coordinate system using the Relative To drop-down list.
Relative To—Display results relative to a directional component.
Graph Location—Select a location from the drop-down list to display in the result window. Use the selector arrow to display your model and pick the entity you want to use in your results display. This area appears only if you select a display type of Graph.
Creo Simulate reports rotation acceleration in radians per unit of time squared.
