Ansys Meshing Tutorials

The Latest

Ansys Meshing | Inflation

You can set the Use Automatic Inflation control so that inflation boundaries are selected automatically depending on whether or not they are members of Named Selections groups.

Ansys Meshing – Keyframe Animation

You can make animations based on keyframes. Keyframes define the start and endpoints of each section of animation.

Ansys Meshing – Match Control

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Match Control tool in Ansys Meshing. Match Control allows duplicating the mesh in a body. We have two option Match Control Cyclic and Arbitrary.

Ansys Meshing – Body of Influence

The Body of Influence option is available in the Type field if you selected a body and Use Adaptive Sizing is set to No. Using this option, you can set one body as a source of another body

Ansys Meshing – Sphere of Influence

The Sphere of Influence option is available in the Type field after you select an entity such as a body, face, edge, or vertex.

Ansys Meshing – Sizing

By default, Use Adaptive Sizing is set to Yes, unless Physics Preference is set to CFD or Nonlinear Mechanical (in which case the default is Capture Curvature set to Yes),

Ansys Meshing – Refinement

Refinement controls specify the maximum number of times you want an initial mesh to be refined.

Ansys Meshing – Method

By default, the application uses the Automatic Method control, which attempts to use sweeping for solid models and quadrilateral element generation for surface body models.

Ansys Meshing – Fine Mesh

Available when Use Adaptive Sizing is set to Yes, the Resolution option controls the mesh distribution. The default setting is Program Controlled.

Ansys Meshing – How to select internal walls?

For solid models, meshing technologies from ANSYS provide robust, well-shaped quadratic tetrahedral meshing on even the most complicated geometries.

Ansys Meshing – Mesh Copy Control

Ansys Meshing – Mesh Copy Control

The Mesh Copy control enables you copy mesh from one body to another. This option can be used to reduce the mesh setup time for repetitive bodies/parts. Association to CAD is maintained after performing mesh copy.

Mesh controls are scoped only to the source anchor body. When the mesh is generated, the source anchor body is meshed and the mesh is then copied to targets.

Ansys Meshing – Pinch

Ansys Meshing – Pinch

The Pinch feature lets you remove small features (such as short edges and narrow regions) at the mesh level in order to generate better quality elements around those features.

Ansys Meshing – Mesh Types (Hexa, Prism, Polyhedral)

Ansys Meshing – Mesh Types (Hexa, Prism, Polyhedral)

When geometries are complex or the range of length scales of the flow is large, a triangular/tetrahedral mesh can be created with far fewer cells than the equivalent mesh consisting of quadrilateral/hexahedral elements.

Ansys Meshing – Hexahedral Mesh (Pipe)

Ansys Meshing – Hexahedral Mesh (Pipe)

The MultiZone mesh method provides automatic decomposition of geometry into mapped (structured/sweepable) regions and free (unstructured) regions.

Ansys Meshing – CutCell

Ansys Meshing – CutCell

The CutCell meshing process involves the following approach:
Objects, material points (optional), and size functions are defined.
The initial size of the Cartesian grid is computed based on the minimum and maximum size set for the size functions.

Ansys Meshing – Parallel Meshing

Ansys Meshing – Parallel Meshing

You can control three mechanisms in ANSYS Workbench that operate in a parallelized manner:
Remote Solve Manager Design Point updates. Refer to RSM Configuration.

Ansys Meshing – Bias Factor

Ansys Meshing – Bias Factor

Source: Ansys Bias Type and Bias Option For edges only, use Bias Type to adjust the spacing ratio of nodes on an edge. This feature is useful for any engineering problem where nodes need to be clustered on an edge or group of edges, or if there is a need to bias the mapped mesh...

Ansys Meshing – Hexahedral Mesh

Ansys Meshing – Hexahedral Mesh

The MultiZone mesh method provides automatic decomposition of geometry into mapped (structured/sweepable) regions and free (unstructured) regions. It automatically generates a pure hexahedral mesh where possible and then fills the more difficult to capture regions with unstructured mesh.

Ansys Meshing – Sizing (SOFT / HARD)

Ansys Meshing – Sizing (SOFT / HARD)

If your sizing controls are scoped to either the source or target face, the mesher will transfer the size control to the opposite face. If you have a size control on both faces, the size on one of the faces will be used. That face is automatically determined by the software.

Ansys Meshing – Local Sizing

Ansys Meshing – Local Sizing

The Sizing options provide greater control over the following properties:
Mesh growth (transition) between small and large sizes based on a specified growth rate

Ansys Meshing – Multizone + Inflation

Ansys Meshing – Multizone + Inflation

The MultiZone mesh method provides automatic decomposition of geometry into mapped (sweepable) regions and free regions. When the MultiZone mesh method is selected, all regions are meshed with a pure hexahedral mesh if possible.

ou can set the Use Automatic Inflation control so that inflation boundaries are selected automatically depending on whether or not they are members of Named Selections groups.

Ansys Meshing – Mapped & Match Control

Ansys Meshing – Mapped & Match Control

The Match Control matches the mesh on two or more faces or edges in a model. The Meshing application provides two types of match controls—cyclic and arbitrary.

Ansys Meshing – Section Plane

Ansys Meshing – Section Plane

Meshing is an integral part of the engineering simulation process where complex geometries are divided into simple elements that can be used as discrete local approximations of the larger domain. The mesh influences the accuracy, convergence and speed of the simulation.

Ansys Meshing – Sphere of Influence

Ansys Meshing – Sphere of Influence

The Sphere of Influence option is available in the Type field after you select an entity such as a body, face, edge, or vertex.

If the Sphere of Influence is scoped to a body or vertex, the Sphere of Influence affects the entire body regardless of sizing options being used.
