This report illustrates the sensitivity between each of the modes in the piping system and the water hammer dynamic loading. High modal participation factors indicate that the mode is easily excited by the applied dynamic forces. If subsequent displacement reports indicate high dynamic responses, then the modes having high participation must be dampened or eliminated. After a particular mode is targeted as being a problem, you can view it in table format using the mode shape report. You can view it graphically using the animated mode shape plots.
