SOLIDWORKS Simulation – Frequency Analysis of Tensioned Guitar Strings

Monday, February 1st, 2016

SOLIDWORKS Simulation is powerful.  Using this tool, I will demonstrate the correlation between SOLIDWORKS Simulation FEA and the solution of a theoretical equation through the analysis of a guitar string.

In this setup, a single guitar string is restrained on both ends. Restraining the string allows it to reach fundamental frequency, which is 1 half wavelength along the length of the string.

The setup will utilize beam elements for the string as it is long and thin. One end will be fixed in the radial, axial, and circumferential directions, while the other end is fixed in only the radial and circumferential directions. On the free end, a variable force will be applied to observe the change in fundamental frequency on the string.
