    Displacement is wrong in Dynamic Analysis

    Jens Leander

      Hello!

      I am modeling a fixed free beam with a mass on the free end. I am interested in the displacement of the free end.

       

      I am giving the free end an initial displacement of 15mm (0,015m). When running the study and making a time/history plot the beam is displaced 0,006m at t=0.

      Why is the displacement at t=0 not my initial displacement?

       

      Am i missing something?

       

      I have attached som pictures and marked my problem in red circles.
