FEM Code for Wave Propagation Analysis

Hi every body,

I'm looking for a FEM code (Matlab, C++, Python,...) for analysis wave propagation in plates.

It would be the most kind of you to let me know how I can find it.

New Ebook on Elastic Solids at Amazon

This treatise provides a broad overview of the definitions of
fundamental quantities and methods of analysis for the use of solid materials
in structural components. The presentation is limited to the linear elastic
range of material behavior where there is a one to one relationship between
load and displacement.  Fundamental
methods of analysis and typical results for structures made of elastic solid materials
subjected to axial, bending, torsion, thermal, and internal pressure loading;

modelling a 3D composite tube

Hi guys,

I deal with modal analysis of  3D 'both clmaped' composite tube in ANSYS. I use solid elements and orthotropic model of material. Constants of this material are homogenized values of composite tube. So I meshed the tube and set the element coord system ESYS as cylindrical. The problem is with results, becasue after solving I get very low eigenfrequncies, i.e. first 100 eigenfrequencies are from 0 to 10 Hz  with step 1 Hz and it seems a bit weird.


Do you have any tips where the problem could be?
