What is assembly meshing?

You can use assembly meshing to reduce the number of mesh elements in your model, which is especially useful for conjugate heat transfer simulation in cases where the fluid domains can be handled with swept mesh.

### Can I import SolidWorks assembly in Ansys?

Save the file as a step file or IGES in Solidworks and Import from ANSYS Workbench. This should work fine.

### Why simply supported beam is used?

A simply supported beam is one that rests on two supports and is free to move horizontally. Typical practical applications of simply supported beams with point loadings include bridges, beams in buildings, and beds of machine tools.

How do you fix a simply supported beam?

Solving for beam reactions

1. Draw the beam free body diagram.
2. Replace the uniform distributed load (if any) with the equivalent point load.
3. Solve ΣMA = 0 (sum of moments about support A).
4. Solve ΣMB = 0.
5. Using RA and RB found at steps 3 and 4 check if ΣV = 0 (sum of all vertical forces) is satisfied.

## What is a beam connection in Ansys?

Beam Connections make use of Remote Points to connect the vertex of the line body (bolt) to the mating part (area in contact with washer/bolt head/nut). • The vertex is also called a “Pilot Node” that is “Scoped” to geometry. • The solver uses Multipoint Constraint (MPC) equations to make these connections.

## How do you calculate deflection on Ansys?

You can get the deflection by using general post processor (you can see the contour with colour bar) and time-history post processor (you can get the deflection data at nodes: Select TimeHist Postpro > Variable Viewer —–then—-Nodal Solution > DOF Solution > Y-Component of displacement.

What is the difference between shell and solid elements?

A solid model is the standard solid element where the material is represented throughout the component/structure. A shell is hollow on the inside and models the outer “shell”. Shells are a mathematical simplification of solids of special shape.
