7. Result :
Click output icon. Click result in the post processing mode.
At the end of the result you can see Rayleigh frequency in X =0.68997 cps
Max. Deflection in X =67.65677 cm. GX at Joint 365.
Rayleigh frequency in Z =0.871418 cps
Max. Deflection in Z = 42.35502 cm GZ at Joint 347.

Note:1. In Rayleigh frequency Load in X and load in Z has to be created.


2. Self weight in X has to be assigned before adding Rayleigh
Frequency.
