# .cmode.csv file

This file is an output file generated during an Acoustic Complex Eigenvalue Analysis.

## File Creation

This file is created when the PARAM, FCACSV Bulk Data Entry is set to -1 or 2 in an Acoustic Complex Eigenvalue Analysis.

## File Contents

This file consists of four sections including Mass Fraction, Modal Assurance Criterion (MAC) – Structural, Modal Assurance Criterion (MAC) – Interface (Wet Surface), and Modal Assurance Criterion (MAC) – Fluid.

## Modal Assurance Criterion (MAC) – Structural

### File Contents

Mapped Structural Modes:

- Coupled Mode ID
- ID of full eigenvector coupled mode (For example, mode
Α
_{1}). - Mapped Mode ID(S)
- ID of full eigenvector (EV) uncoupled structural mode.
- MAC(S)
- MAC values are calculated for: Coupled mode (Α
_{1}) EV corresponding to the only structural grids versus each full EV uncoupled structural mode (mode 1 to mode N, where N is the total number of uncoupled structural modes). - MAC_Wet(S)
- MAC value is calculated for: Coupled mode (Α
_{1}) EV corresponding to only the wet surface structural grids versus uncoupled structural mode (identified in the Mapped Mode ID(S) field) corresponding to the wet surface structural grids.
