Quantity Notes for Modal and Dynamic Analyses
These notes can be helpful when you want to display results for modal and dynamic analyses:
For modal analyses, values for all quantities are not absolute. You cannot compare them to quantities from any other type of analysis. Creo Simulate unit normalizes displacements and rotations to 1.0 by dividing all displacements by the maximum displacement response. All other modal quantities are mass normalized. If you want to mass normalize displacements and rotations, use the –massnorm engine option.
If you select Full results when you define your analysis, the result window displays all valid quantities plus all valid measures. If you do not select Full results, the result window displays only the valid measures.
