Modal/Panel Participation Utility
• The Modal/Panel Participation utility allows you to plot modal/panel participation curves from an OptiStruct .h3d file or an MSC Nastran .f06/.pch file.
• Modal participation represents the complex contribution of a structure or fluid mode to a response.
• Modal participation can be output from a modal frequency response analysis using the PFMODE output request card.
• Panel contribution represents the complex contribution of all grids on a structural panel to a response. It can be output from a modal frequency response analysis using the PFPANEL
output request card
