Expand Harmonic Modal Superposition with DPF#

Different types of linear dynamics expansions are implemented in DPF. With modal superposition used in harmonic analysis, modal coefficients are multiplied by mode shapes (of a previous modal analysis) to analyse a structure under given boundary conditions in a range of frequencies. Doing this expansion “on demand” in DPF instead of in the solver reduces the size of the result files.

Create the data sources#

First create a data sources with the mode shapes and the modal response The expansion is recursive in dpf: first the modal response is read, then, “upstreams” mode shapes are found in the data sources, so they are read and expanded (mode shapes x modal response)

msup_files = examples.download_msup_files_to_dict()
data_sources = dpf.DataSources(msup_files["rfrq"])
up_stream_data_sources = dpf.DataSources(msup_files["mode"])
up_stream_data_sources.add_file_path(msup_files["rst"])

data_sources.add_upstream(up_stream_data_sources)

Compute displacements#

Once the recursivity is put in the data sources (with add_upstream) computing displacements with or without expansion, in harmonic, transient or modal analysis has the exact same syntax

model = dpf.Model(data_sources)
disp = model.results.displacement.on_all_time_freqs.eval()

freq_scoping = disp.get_time_scoping()
for freq_set in freq_scoping:
    model.metadata.meshed_region.plot(disp.get_field_by_time_complex_ids(freq_set, 0))
