CFD and Structural Meshing: Who Moved My Node?

meshing“Meshing”… Usually throwing this single word to a group of structural or CFD analysts will start interesting and passionate discussions. Meshing is definitely a key part of the simulation process and requires attention. As analysts, how many hours did we or do we spend on meshing? Probably too many —  especially if you have been in the simulation world for many years and started when automation of meshing was not so common. But after all, meshing is just one of the tools that we need to get accurate results and we should spend more time looking at simulation results than meshing our models. Continue reading

How to Apply a Harmonic Base Excitation Natively in ANSYS Mechanical Workbench 16.0

In a previous post, I have presented how to apply a harmonic base excitation in ANSYS Mechanical 15.0 using three different techniques. Among those techniques, we had the great ACT extension that has received a great attention due to its ease of use and practicality.

ANSYS 16.0 offers the capability of applying a harmonic base excitation natively, and without the need for the ACT. Acceleration applied as a base excitation uses the Enforced Motion Method. Continue reading
