Calculation RF-IMP

I want to generate imperfections in the add-on module RSIMP using a buckling mode from RSBUCK.

However, after I generate the imperfections, I obtain only values for the inclination, the values for the precamber are all zero. Why?

Answer

The values for the precamber are not shown because the ordinate of the buckling mode is probably too small so that it cannot be considered by using the specify tolerance.

In the "Details" dialog box, you define from which ordinate of the selected buckling mode or deformation the imperfection is to be generated.
