Python library that loads modal composites from the file containing the parametric model of buckling and free vibration in prismatic shell structures, as computed by the fsm_eigenvalue project.

This work is a part of the investigation within the research project [ON174027], supported by the Ministry for Science and Technology, Republic of Serbia. This support is gratefully acknowledged.

To install fsm_load_modal_composites run:

$ pip install fsm_load_modal_composites

Usage examples

Quick start:

>>> import logging
>>> logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG)

>>> from pprint import pprint
>>> from fsm_load_modal_composites import load_modal_composites

>>> results_file = 'examples/barbero-viscoelastic.hdf5'
>>> modal_composites, column_units, column_descriptions = load_modal_composites(
...     results_file, a_max=600, t_b_min=6.0
... )

>>> modal_composites.shape

>>> pprint(modal_composites.dtype)
[('a', '<f8'),
 ('t_b', '<f8'),
 ('m_dominant', '<i4'),
 ('omega', '<f8'),
 ('omega_approx', '<f8'),
 ('omega_rel_err', '<f8'),
 ('sigma_cr', '<f8'),
 ('sigma_cr_approx', '<f8'),
 ('sigma_cr_rel_err', '<f8')]

 >>> pprint(column_descriptions)
 {'a': 'strip length',
  'm_dominant': 'dominant mode, modal composite via sigma_cr',
  'omega': 'natural frequency',
  'omega_approx': 'natural frequency approximated from critical buckling stress',
  'omega_rel_err': 'natural frequency relative approximation error',
  'sigma_cr': 'critical buckling stress',
  'sigma_cr_approx': 'critical buckling stress approximated from natural frequency',
  'sigma_cr_rel_err': 'critical buckling stress relative approximation error',
  't_b': 'base strip thickness'}
