Workshop # 3 (cont.)

1. This is a continuation of the workshop #2 2. In this example,we will add 2 additional loading conditions: 3. SUBCASE 20 = thermal loading a. initial temperature = 70 degrees b. loading temperature = 100 degrees 4. SUBCASE 30 = Gravity loading Apply a 1-g(386.0886 in/sec2) in the negative Y-direction

Workshop 3-4

Suggested Exercise Steps:


1.

2. 3. 4.

Copy previous PATRAN workshop db file:w2.db to another name called w3.db Open the PATRAN database and bring in the w3.db There is already a loadcase called default from workshop 2.

5.

6.

7.

8.
9.

Create a new loadcase in PATRAN, (second loadcase) is called thermal,copy all the loading from the first loadcase to thermal except the force loading. Create thermal load in LOAD/BC, and include this thermal load in this loadcase Create another loadcase in PATRAN,(third loadcase) is called gravity,copy all the loading from the first loadcase to gravity except the force loading. Create gravity load in LOAD/BC, and include this thermal load in this loadcase Submit the model to MSC.Nastran for analysis. Post-Process results using MSC.Patran.
