Hi there ,
I am using modal analysis in abaqus to analize a cantilever beam that is subjected to an axial force. the material is elastic and Reighley damping is zero , but in order to define the parameters for analysis , there is a 5% damping for first mode. now , I want to obtain the dissipated energy of the beam through time. which energy output corresponds to the dissipated enrgy?
Is there a way to obtain the dissipated energy in elastic model with no damping at all?
