Paper Title:
Modal Analysis of the Cable-Stayed Space Truss Combining ANSYS and MSC.ADAMS
  Abstract

Modal analysis, which is applied to verify the vibration characteristic of structures, is the basis of various dynamic analyses. In this paper, firstly, a cable-stayed space truss, consisting of stay cables, columns and space truss, is built in ANSYS. Secondly, modal analysis is performed to confirm the natural frequencies of the structure and 10 modes are extracted. Thirdly, a modal neutral file including all necessary information of flexible bodies is generated by ANSYS and then imported into ADAMS for further modal analysis. Finally, comparison of results between ANSYS and ADAMS are summarized and qualitative analysis is carried out aiming at the difference of natural frequencies between ANSYS and ADAMS. The simulation results indicate that the interface between the two tools has strong compatibility regardless of minor errors in it.
