Base Acceleration Harmonic Response Analysis Procedures in Workbench

Do you have a need to analyze a structure’s response to shaker table loads?  Shaker tables are commonly used to test the dynamic response of a structure subject to a range of excitation frequencies.  Shaker table inputs are typically in the form of harmonic base accelerations.  Unfortunately, it can be difficult to determine how to apply this type of load in a finite element analysis.  This document, along with referenced ANSYS Workbench example models, presents two methods for performing a harmonic base acceleration analysis in ANSYS Workbench.
