effect of water acceleration in transient dynamic analysis

Dear all,

I would to like to perform transient dynamic analysis of structure in ANSYS ,where internal static pressure has been applied .

I have a query regarding how to consider the dynamic acceleration of inside water in analysis.I am using SHELL181 element for analysis. 

Any input or help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Thanking you in advance.




Problem with solving a nonlinear boundary value problem in Maple software

The problem is related to swelling induced bifurcation in thermally activated hydrogels. At a special temperature near the phase transition, where the variation is relatively great, Maple stops calculating with initial Newton iteration convergence error. How can I solve the problem?

Your response will be greatly appreciated
