  1. Eigenvalue along normal direction of surfaces

    Thank you for your help. But your expression doesn't work. I take time to understand how work the builder expression (from "Derived Results") and I did some corrections : Dot(BCElemToNode(ElementAxisVector("0.0 0.0 1.0","LC0F1.Elements","R1.LC0F1.V1","Bisect"),"avg","LC0F1.Elements"),"R1.V2") R1.LC0F1.V1 : Coordinates R1.V2 : Eigen mode BR Karl
  2. Eigenvalue along normal direction of surfaces

    I work on the acoustic optimization of gearboxes. I will do some measure in few months. I need to determine an optimal placement of my sensors to see my modal shapes. My sensors are 1D accelerometers (normal direction). To compute a good placement of my sensors I need a matrix (lines: modal basis; columns: my nodes) and the values in this matrix are the Eigen value along normal direction (because I have 1D accelerometers). With this matrix I can do a QR decomposition or a Monte Carlo method (where I select the smaller conditioning of the computed sub-matrix) to determine a good placement. Also I need these Eigen values to do a spectral iterative computation to get the dynamic response of my gearbox where I take account the non-linearity of my excitatory effort, transmission error, etc. Ok thank you I will try this week BR Karl
  3. Eigenvalue along normal direction of surfaces

    Yes I know that I'm speaking about nodes... and a node it's not a surface ... but values are define at nodes ... Normal to what ? As I said in my first message " their local surfaces ", It's not possible ? I don't know ... maybe it's possible to use the nearest element normal vector ? Or a mean of nearest element normal vector? To do my computation I need each value along its nearest normal vector... So, there is a mean to extract values along normal vector of local surfaces ?
  4. Eigenvalue along normal direction of surfaces

    Yes I checked. But it plot vectors in function of its global system (see "My_housing.jpg"). I would like something like my first picture called "Normal.jpg". BR Karl
  5. Eigenvalue along normal direction of surfaces

    ok, but how can I make 170 000 different local coordinate systems, 1 per node, where one of three axis is the local normal vector ? I need to extract values along normal vectors for each node of my gearbox' housing. If it's not possible in HV or HM. How can I extract normal vector's coordinates for each node ?
  6. Hi, I performed a modal analysis on a train gearbox with complex geometry, I obtain values for 170 000 nodes and I need to see or export eigen values of nodes along normal direction of their local surfaces. I saw in contour panel that it possible to display the magnitude or values along of x, y and z axis, but, I would like know if it's possible to display values (like eigen value or displacement) along normal direction of surfaces in HyperView ? Or a solution (like a local system for each node) before the computation with optistruct to display values along normal direction in HV ? BR, Karl
