Types of Dynamic Analyses

Types of Dynamic Analyses

There are two groups of dynamic analysis: linear and non-linear.

For an overview on the different types of non-linear structural behaviour, please look at our blog: https://www.fea-solutions.co.uk/non-linear-behaviour/

These groups then have their own types of dynamic analysis depending on what is being simulated, what the inputs are, and what outputs are desired.
They are the following:

  • Linear Analysis:
    • Modal Analysis
    • Harmonic Analysis
    • Response Spectrum Analysis (RSA)
    • Transient Analysis
    • Random Vibration Analysis
  • Non-Linear Analysis:
    • Full Transient Analysis.

Each of these have their own uses, either independently or alongside another method to produce simulations to fit an application.
