Combining Different Mesh Types in Workbench - ANSYS e-Learning

In finite element analyses, we have a large toolbox of element types to best represent the physical structure we are modeling.  Many times, a combination of element types is necessary to accurately capture the behavior.  In this ANSYS e-Learning session, CAE Associates looks at scenarios that show how to connect the elements of varying types and degree of freedom capability.  We work with line, surface, and solid body geometry, then we cover the beam, shell, and solid mesh connections between these bodies.  Using these combinations in your analysis can develop both an accurate and efficient FE Model.

Topics Covered:

  • Integrating Shells and Solids in a single model
  • Shell to Solid Submodeling
  • Contact and Connections
  • Techniques for verification of model integrity
