How to solve this exercise on ANSYS APDL. A structure consisting of beam ABC can slide vertically at A and B. The beam can suspended by two bars CD and CE, with C being the midpoint of the beam. The sliding bearings at A and B are okay supported on springs of stiffness k. The weight P of the beam is evenly distributed over the entire dimension long, the weight of the bars is negligible. Structure subjected to load F = 100 kN as Figure 2. The beam has a square cross-section with side a = 70 mm and is made of materials with Elastic modulus E1 = 90 GPa. The bars have a circular cross-section with ..read more

I'm trying to do a FSI simulation with properties, described in this paper and for the structural properties, the authors use an Ogden–Holzapfel two-fiber strain-energy function to describe the solid material as you can see in the picture below. To define this material in Ansys Transient Structural's Engineering Data, First, I tried to use the Odgen 3rd order from Hyperelastic section but the constants and variables needed to define it are different from what we have in the paper. Is there anyways to use Odgen 3rd order or should I write a function myself? I did some research and I couldn't un ..read more

I'm trying to perform 2D analysis for a steady laminar incompressible flow through a horizontal channel with a height of H (m) and length of 2H. The boundary conditions is of the form: $u=\frac{3}{2}U_{avg}\left(1-\frac{2y}{H}\right),v=0$ at $x=0$, $\frac{\partial u}{\partial x}=0,\frac{\partial v}{\partial x}=0$ at $x=2H$, with no-slip condition at the walls. Is it possible to implement these boundary conditions in Fluent? I think that UDF may help but I have no experience dealing with it. Thanks in advance, I will appreciate any help ..read more

I have a Fusion 360 model that I imported into ANSYS Workbench Fluent as a .step file. I want to make an enclosure around it but it is giving me an error. The error doesn't occur if I choose just any one body as target body for enclosure. I don't understand what is going wrong since I am a beginner ..read more

I have been modeling in both Abaqus and Ansys the effect of an explicit dynamic system in which pressure is applied instantaneously to one side of a piston starting at 1e+16 Pa and finishing at 0 Pa, and the other side of the piston does the reverse (0Pa to 1e+16 Pa). Additionally, the piston is inside a hollow chamber, which is also subsequent to an increase of 1e+16 Pa. In both Ansys and Abaqus, by welding the piston to the chamber, the weld and piston expand with the the expansion of the chamber, keeping a "seal" between each end, eventually breaking off and moving as a piston. But only in ..read more

I'm attempting to make a deformation analysis for a specific scenario in Ansys Mechanical. Everything seems to be fine, but when I try to use a section plane, the deformed region appears to be 'hollow,' as shown in the figure regardless of how fine the mesh is will appreciate any help ..read more

I want to simulate two heat pipelines - first pipe is supply pipe with temperature of 130°C and the other one with temperature of 70°C steady state thermal. Both carry water but under different pressure. They are stored in air and in concrete body and laid in soil. I would like to measure temperature at several point on concrete wall and approximately 2m left from pipes and right and 0.5m above and beneath the pipes but the simulation doesn´t work. I already made geometry but the model doesn´t work. I don´t know why (is geometry wrong, eng data, or model itself wrong) because I am new to Ansys ..read more

I'm new to ANSYS and just started using it. I encountered a problem when I click the model option; ANSYS Mechanical opens, but there is this blue rectangle, which is supposed to be big and show my model, but it appears as in the photo, and sometimes just a small part of my model is visible. Is there any way to solve this? My version is 2023 R2 ..read more
