Working with APDL Commands in Workbench - ANSYS e-Learning
When running ANSYS Mechanical do you ever encounter capabilities that require you to transfer your model back into Mechanical APDL (Classic)? Through the use of Command Blocks, one can stay within the Mechanical application, yet leverage the complete functionally that both APDL and Workbench have to offer. Adding features to Mechanical via Command Blocks is easy and does not require any advanced scripting knowledge. These snippets of command can be used in the pre-processing, solution and post processing phases of your analysis. They can be as simple as adding a single analysis parameter or as complex as incorporating an analysis tool, such as CivilFEM that has not been integrated into Workbench.
CAE Associates’ Project Manager Eric Stamper guides you through the process of Working with APDL command objects in Workbench. You will learn how to:
- Insert Command Blocks into any stage of the analysis and leverage named selections
- Modify and/or change materials, element types and real / section properties
- Modify and/or replace the solution solve sequence
- Obtain the full post processing functions of /Post1 within Mechanical
If you are new to Workbench Mechanical or an ANSYS Classic Expert that has been reluctant to use Workbench, you should view this e-Learning session to expand your analysis expertise.
