What is Ansys mechanical: Definition and 20 Discussions

Ansys, Inc. is an American company based in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. It develops and markets multiphysics engineering simulation software for product design, testing and operation and offers its products and services to customers worldwide.
Ansys was founded in 1970 by John Swanson. Swanson sold his interest in the company to venture capitalists in 1993. Ansys went public on NASDAQ in 1996. In the 2000s, Ansys acquired numerous other engineering design companies, obtaining additional technology for fluid dynamics, electronics design, and other physics analysis. Ansys became a component of the NASDAQ-100 index on December 23, 2019.

    How to apply moments in ANSYS Explicit Dynamic Analysis?

    Hello All, I want to apply moments to Revolute Joints in Explicit Dynamic Analysis. But i could not find any option to apply moments. I saw an youtube video, from which it is cleary know that it is possible to apply moments to revolute joints under initial conditions. But i don't know how they...

    How to use TSRES command in Ansys APDL

    Hello, I have a transient heat transfer analysis question where I heat a plate for a short duration and then evaluate thermal response. The duration of heat pulse occurs for .1 seconds at time t = 1 second and thermal response time I would like to evaluate is 1 minute. I use an Ansys APDL table...

    Time History Fatigue Analysis - Ansys Static Structural Quer

    I'm testing a part for fatigue, and I got a time series of Forces and Moments on three different parts of the body (A wind turbine hub). From the static structural fatigue analysis, I noticed that you need a von mises stress input - that's not a problem. My problem is, how do I place different...

    Simulation sandwich structure ANSYS Mechanical

    Hello everyone! I’m using APDL to simulate the behavior of a specimen in tension with a sandwich structure made of honeycomb and glass fiber. It was modeled in CATIA V5 and exported to APDL in a parasolid file. Only a half of the structure has been modeled because of symmetry condition. NOTE...

    Runing multiple instances of Ansys Mechanical at the same time

    Hello experts, Is it possible to run several instances of Ansys Mechanical in Windows or Linux in parallel? How? I need to dramatically speed up the solution of a large list of Ansys Mechanical jobs, typically more than 50000. Such analyses are performed by some script that runs each job in...

    ANSYS Mechanical APDL - High Temperature Creep Modeling via Isochronous Curves

    ANSYS can be used to model creep in a number of different ways. If you are designing to ASME Section VIII, Div., 2 you might have to verify that your design meets the "shake down to elastic action" criteria. Basically, that means that the strains do not continue to increase over the number of...

    ANSYS Mechanical APDL - Rotating Boundary Conditions

    All, I recently completed a project where transient thermal boundary conditions are rotated around a cylinder for a general number of revolutions. In reality, the cylinder rotated but it was much easier to rotate the thermal conditions around the model in the ANSYS environment. I used 360...
