I'm looking for a cheap Harmonic Balance program out there. I've tried HABALA (or whatever it was called) and it was difficult to use...in fact I never got it to work. Any others out there?

Hi jom,

I have searched many times for open source harmonic balance software for Windows with no success. You used to be able to get "Harmonic Balance" from UC Berkeley, but it's hard to find now even on their site. It's probably 16-bit code that will not run on the newer 64-bit operating systems.

http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/IPRO/Software/Description/harmonic.balance.html

Ansoft offers a free student version.

Yep, I found both those sites yesterday. I still have no clue about that Berkeley site. It gives a bunch of info then....nothing.

The Ansoft doesn't have the Harmonic Balance in the student version evidently. They stopped that 5/6 years ago with SV 8.5 or some such.

I wonder how one would approach writing your own code??

Thanks

jom

Question: How does run this on XP? There wasn't an .exe file in the tar file I downloaded. ??

Thanks
