Numerical Solution

In order to obtain modal shapes and their corresponding frequencies, we must insert a total deformation graphic for each mode we asked the solver to find in Analysis Settings.  Do  this by right clicking Solution > Insert > Deformation > Total.  

Right click on the newly created Total Deformation tab and rename it Mode 1.  We must assign each total deformation to a specific mode.  Do this by selecting Mode 1 and setting the Mode number under Definition to 1.  Repeat this process for modes 2 through 5.  The details window for Mode 1 deformation is pictured below.
