    Hi everyone,

    I'm using Ansys AQWA for the first time and encountered a problem concerning the definition of additional (viscous) damping coefficients as percentages of critical dampings.

    In order to validate the critical damping coefficients I currently have (computed with DIODORE), I would like to know if it is possible to compute critical damping coefficients with AQWA. Knowing how powerful AQWA is, I assume that it must be possible.

    I'm quite unfamiliar with this software and I don't know if this kind of result comes as *.txt file for instance. Could you please explain to me how to get this information ?

    Thanks for your help.
