10.1 Creating an analysis

Creating an analysis

To create a new analysis, complete the following steps:

  1. Go to the Analyze module.
  2. Click on this button . A menu will appear.
  3. Select the correct analysis type from the list.

Adding a new Analysis

You can edit the analysis name by right-clicking on it and selecting Rename.

Defining analysis inputs

Before computing the analysis, you need to decide which data will be used for it, by setting the datasets and channels as inputs.

Setting operational inputs

To calculate the results, you need to define which operational datasets are used for the analysis.

To set operational datasets as inputs, complete the following steps:

  1. Select the analysis by clicking on it.
  2. Click on Inputs.
  3. Click on Operational Data.
  4. Select the desired operational dataset(s) by checking the box.

Operational datasets are set as analysis inputs.

You can select multiple datasets and adding or removing them from the inputs by pressing the SPACEBAR.

Setting FRF inputs

To calculate the results, you need to define which FRF datasets are used for the analysis.

Using test assemblies, you can set one FRF to be used for calculating the Blocked Forces (characterization FRF) and the others for the TPA syntheses (synthesis FRF). This is useful when calculating Blocked Forces with one setup and using them for TPA synthesis in other target assemblies. To set the test assemblies correctly, you can find instructions at this link.

To set FRF datasets as inputs, complete the following steps:

  1. Select the analysis by clicking on it.
  2. Click on Inputs.
  3. Click on FRF Data.
  4. Select the desired FRF dataset(s) by checking the box.

FRF datasets are set as analysis inputs.

You can select multiple datasets and adding or removing them from the inputs by pressing the SPACEBAR.

Setting channel inputs

After deciding which operational and FRF datasets are used for the analysis, you also need to set the channels that will be used as inputs.

To set the input channels, complete the next steps:

  1. Select the analysis by clicking on it.
  2. Click on Inputs.
  3. Click on Channels.
  4. Click on the channel category you are interested in.
  5. Select the correct channels by checking the box.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for all the channel cateogories.

Channel inputs for the analysis

You can select multiple channels and adding or removing them from the inputs by pressing the SPACEBAR.

Duplicating an analysis

One of the strong features of SOURCE is the ability to perform several analyses on any combination of datasets. By right-clicking on an analysis in the Analyses card and selecting Duplicate, we create a duplicate analysis. We can then change, for example, the matrix inverse settings or the forces used in the TPA, and easily see what effect this has on the results.
