is it possible to get a graph (displacement v time) of the modal shapes from the results of a modal analysis.

Please use plain text.

Hi Edward,

 

I think the software cannot produce such a graph, but it should be relatively easy to create such graphs in Excel. If you were to plot one node at three different frequencies, it would look like the attached.

 

Out of curiousity, what would you use such a graph for?
