I have results from a dynamic simulation run at 40 g input. The plot shows "Ampres" with a max value at 13.56. The actual displacement should be around 0.0005 inches. I'm looking for what "Ampres" translates to for displacement.
this usually shows up in frequency plots and is not meaningful in terms of actual displacements. "Ampres" is short "amplitude resultant". It typically gives the relative displacement from one location to the next in a frequency analysis.
Thank you Bill. It turns out what I was looking for was 'define displacement plot', which is in the fly out menu when you right click on 'results' in the simulation feature tree. Thanks for your response.
If I may ask...
if I got ampres 0.03 in 1 location and 0.0015 in another... what does that mean? Is the stress at 0,03 2 times larger than on area where it's 0,0015? Or is it 0,03% larger or 3% larger than on area with 0?
What does this mean for this structure for example?
