Harmonic Analysis
A. Definition & Purpose Training Manual

DYNAMICS 7.0
What is harmonic analysis?

• A technique to determine the steady state response of a structure


to sinusoidal (harmonic) loads of known frequency.

• Input:
– Harmonic loads (forces, pressures, and imposed displacements) of
known magnitude and frequency.
– May be multiple loads all at the same frequency. Forces and
displacements can be in-phase or out-of phase. Surface and body
loads can only be specified with a phase angle of zero.

• Output:
– Harmonic displacements at each DOF, usually out of phase with the
applied loads.
– Other derived quantities, such as stresses and strains.

… Definition & Purpose Training Manual

DYNAMICS 7.0
Harmonic analysis is used in the design of:

• Supports, fixtures, and components of rotating equipment such


as compressors, engines, pumps, and turbomachinery.

• Structures subjected to vortex shedding (swirling motion of


fluids) such as turbine blades, airplane wings, bridges, and
towers.

DYNAMICS 7.0
Why should you do a harmonic analysis?

• To make sure that a given design can withstand sinusoidal loads


at different frequencies (e.g, an engine running at different
speeds).

• To detect resonant response and avoid it if necessary (by using


dampers, for example).

DYNAMICS 7.0
• General equation of motion:

[ M ]{u } + [ C]{ u } + [ K ]{ u} = { F}

• [F] and {u} are harmonic, with frequency ω :

{ F} = {Fmax eiψ }eiωt = ({ F1} + i{ F2 } )eiωt


{ u} = {u max eiφ}eiωt = ({ u1} + i{ u 2 } )eiωt

• Equation of motion for harmonic analysis:

(−ω2 [ M ] + iω[ C] + [ K ] )({ u1} + i{ u 2 } ) = ({ F1} + i{ F2 } )

Complex Displacements Training Manual

DYNAMICS 7.0
• Calculated displacements will be complex if:
– Damping is specified.
– Applied load is complex (i.e, imaginary part is non-zero).

• Complex displacements lag by phase angle φ (with respect to the


applied force).

• Results can be viewed in the form of real and imaginary parts or


amplitude and phase angle.

Harmonic Analysis - Terminology & Concepts
Solution Methods Training Manual

DYNAMICS 7.0
Three methods of solving the harmonic equation of motion:
• Full method
– Default method, easiest of all.
– Uses full structure matrices. Unsymmetric matrices (e.g, acoustics) are
allowed.
• Reduced method*
– Uses reduced matrices, faster than full method.
– Requires master DOF selection, which results in approximate [M] and [C].
• Mode superposition**
– Sums factored mode shapes from a preceding modal analysis.
– Fastest of all methods.

*Not covered in this seminar; see ANSYS Structural Analysis Guide for information.

– Displacement constraints - zero or non-zero.
– Forces
– Pressures

taken as harmonically varying loads!

• The load value (magnitude) represents


the amplitude Fmax.

• Phase angle Ψ is the phase shift between


two or more harmonic loads. Not
required if only one load is present. Non-
zero Ψ only valid for force and
displacement harmonic loads. March 14, 2003

Amplitude and phase angle (continued)
• ANSYS does not allow direct input of amplitude and
phase angle. Instead, you specify the real and
imaginary components.
• For example, given two harmonic forces F1 and F2
that are out of phase by angle Ψ :
F2max

Imaginary
F1real = F1max (amplitude of F1)
F1imag = 0
F2real = F2maxcosΨ
Ψ F1max
Real
F2imag = F2maxsinΨ
• You can use APDL for these calculations, but make
sure angular units are set to degrees (default is
radians).

Frequency of harmonic load:
• Specified in cycles per second (Hertz) by a frequency range and
number of substeps within that range.
• For example, a range of 0-50 Hz with 10 substeps gives
solutions at frequencies of 5, 10, 15, …, 45, and 50 Hz. Same
range with 1 substep gives one solution at 50 Hz.

Stepped versus ramped loads:
• With multiple substeps, loads can be applied gradually (ramped)
or all at once in the first substep (stepped).
• Harmonic loads are usually stepped since the load value
represents maximum amplitude.
