Hi everyone,

This is my first post on this forum.

I would like to know if it is possible to run a non linear static analysis on a structure I have and THEN running a modal analysis on the resulting deformed structure.

I cannot impose my loads directly in the frequency analysis loadcase because displacements are quite large and various non compenetration contacts must be taken into account.

Is there a way to do this?

Thank you in advance for your attention.

Best Regards

Matteo

No. Not even sure how one might approximate it with SWX sim. Easy to do in Abaqus though( and marc probably)
