How to draw structures in ANSYS Problem description Draw two beams in ANSYS, one is 100mm*10mm*10mm start from origin and the other is also 100mm*10mm*10mm connected to the first one. ANSYS procedure Main Menu Æ Preprocessor Æ Modeling Æ Create Æ Volumes Æ Block Æ By 2 Corners & Z Æ In the pop up window, input WPX “0”, WPY “0”, Width “100”, Height “10”, Depth “10” Æ Click “Apply” Æ Input WPX “100”, WPY “-90”, Width “10”, Height “100”,
Depth “10” Æ Click “ok” * You can also use “By Dimensions” to draw the beams by giving the coordinate of two opposite corners. Thermal Analysis in ANSYS Problem description o Calculate the temperature distribution on a 100mm*10mm*10mm beam with 25 C at one end and 2 1000W/m heat flux on the other end Method Static analysis in ANSYS with thermal element types ANSYS 1. Import the beam file from SolidWorks as described in last lecture 2. Define the analysis as a thermal analysis Main Menu Æ Preference Æ check “Thermal” Æ ok 2. Select the element type as Solid 87 Main Menu Æ Preprocessor Æ Element Type Æ Add/Edit/Delete Æ Click “Add” in the element dialog box Æ Choose “Solid” under “Thermal” in the left scroll box of the library of element types Æ Choose “Tet 10node 87” in the right scroll box Æ Click “ok” to close the library Æ Click “close” to close the element dialog box 3. Input the material properties Main Menu Æ Preprocessor Æ Material Props Æ Material Models Æ In the “Define Material Model Behavior” dialog box, double click “Thermal” on the right box Æ double click “Conductivity” Æ double click “Isotropic” Æ...
