Abstract

In this paper are given basic steps of the modal analysis simulation. The modal analysis is carried out on the titan cantilever beam. The cantilever beam is designed in the graphical environment of the ANSYS and SolidWorks. The cantilever beam was fixed on one end and all degrees of freedom on this end were taken, beam cannot move and rotate. Mode shapes and natural frequencies are computed in programs ANSYS and SolidWorks with numerical formulation of the direct solver including the block Lanczos method.
