    • Add a Buckling Analysis block
    • Insert the FE Model into the Model input
    • Add the Pressure BC to the BC List input 
    • Press the '+' in the BC List to add another input

  2. Reading the Results

    Once you run an analysis, a Heads Up Display (HUD) will appear showing the results. The HUD allows you to toggle through Total displacement and displacement across X, Y, and Z axes.


    The Displacement results show you how much your model moves under the given boundary conditions. You can see a scaled version of the displacement by clicking the Displacement checkmark and sliding the Scale Factor up. You can view either the Total or Directional displacement by changing the second combo box from the top of the HUD. 



And that’s it! You’ve successfully run a buckling analysis
