Objectives of FEA for Design Engineers

The ultimate objective of using the FEA as a design tool is to change the design process from repetitive cycles of "design, prototype, test" into streamlined process where prototypes are not used as design tools and are only needed for final design verification. With the use of FEA, design iterations are moved from the physical space of prototyping and testing into the virtual space of computer simulations (figure 1-1).

TYPES OF ANALYSIS:
The various jobs that can be performed by the ANSYS software are Structural analysis Thermal analysis Electric Circuit analysis Electromagnetic problems Six sigma design Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Modal analysis Vibration analysis Nonlinear analysis STAGES OF ANALYSIS IN ANSYS: 1)PREPROCESSOR: i) Real Constant:

The calculation of the element matrices requires material properties, nodal coordinates and geometrical parameters. Any data required for the calculation of the element matrix that cannot be determined from the nodal coordinates or material properties are called 'Veal constants" in ANSYS. Typically, real constants are area, thickness, inner diameter, outer diameter, etc. Not all element types require real constants.
ii) ELEMENT TYPE: The nodes and elements are the essential parts of a finite element model. Before starting meshing, the element type{s) to be used must be defined (Otherwise ANSYS refuses to create the mesh). The ANSYS software contains more than 100 different element types in its element library. Each element type has a unique number and a prefix that identifies the element category, such as BEAM3, PLANE42, SOLID45, etc. The elements that are available in ANSYS can be classified according to many different criteria, such as dimensionality, analysis discipline, and material behavior. ANSYS classifies the elements in 21 different groups. In this section, the elements from four of these groups

Page2

specifically, structural, thermal, fluid, and FLOTRAN CFDare considered for different analysis objectives iii) MATERIAL PROPERTIES:

For each element type, there is a minimum number of required materials properties. This number depends on the type of analysis. The material properties may be: Linear or nonlinear. Isotropic, orthotropic, or anisotropic. Temperature dependent or independent. All material properties can be input as functions of temperature. Some properties are called linear properties because typical solutions with these properties require only a single iteration. This means that the properties being used are neither time nor temperature dependent, and thus remain constant throughout the analysis. In the presence of variable material properties, the nonlinear characteristics of the properties must be specified. For example, a material exhibiting plasticity, viscoplasticity, etc., requires the specification of a nonlinear stress-strain relation. iv) MODELLING: The geometrical representation of the physical system is referred to as the solid model. In model generation with ANSYS, the ultimate goal is to create a finite element mesh of the physical system. There are two main paths in ANSYS to generate the nodes and elements of the mesh: (1) direct generation and (2) solid modeling and meshing. In direct generation, every single node is generated by entering their coordinates followed by generation of the elements through the connectivity information. Since most real engineering problems require a high number of nodes and elements (i.e., hundreds or thousands), direct generation is not feasible. Solid modeling is a very powerful alternative to direct generation. Solid modeling involves the creation of geometrical entities, such as lines, areas, or volumes, that represent the actual geometry of the problem. Once completed, they
Page3

can be meshed by ANSYS automatically (user still has control over the meshing through user-specified preferences for mesh density, etc.). A solid model can be created by using either entities or primitivesThe entities refer to the keypoints, lines, areas, and volumes. The primitives are predefined geometrical shapes. There is an ascending hierarchy among the entities from the keypoints to the volumes. Each entity (except keypoints) can be created by using the lower ones. When defined, each entity is automatically associated with its lower entities. If these entities are created by starting with keypoints and moving up, the approach is referred to as "bottom-up'' solid modeling. When primitives are used, lower-order entities (keypoints, lines, and areas) are automatically generated by ANSYS. Since the use of primitives involves the generation of entities without having to create lower entities, it is referred to as the "top-down" approach. Boolean or similar operations can be applied to the primitives to generate the complex geometries. The bottom-up and top-down approaches can easily be combined since one may be more convenient at a certain stage and the other at another stage. It is not necessary to declare a preference between the two approaches throughout the analysis. V) MESHING: One of the most powerful features of ANSYS is automatic mesh generation. ANSYS meshes the solid model entities upon execution of an "appropriate" single command. With automatic meshing, the user can still provide specific preferences for mesh density and shape. If no preferences are specified by the user, ANSYS uses the default preferences. ANSYS allows the user to control the mesh density of the domains defined by solid model entities. The desired mesh density can be achieved by: Defining a target element edge size on the domain boundaries. Defining a default number of element edges on all lines. Defining the number of element edges on specific lines. Using smart sizing.

Page4

Using mapped meshing. 2) SOLUTION: After preprocessing, the model generation, including meshing, is complete. The user is ready to begin the solution phase of the ANSYS session. First, the analysis type is specified from among the three main types: Static. Transient (time-dependent). Submodeling and substructuring If the problem under consideration falls into the Structural Analysis discipline, then there are additional analysis types, such as modal, harmonic, spectrum, and eigenvalue buckling. There are two main deciding factors in choosing the analysis type: Loading conditions: If the boundary conditions change as a function of time or there are initial conditions, then the analysis type is Transient. However, if the analysis discipline is structural and if the loading is a sinusoidal function of time, then the analysis type is Harmonic. Similarly, if the loading is a seismic spectrum, the analysis type is Spectrum. Results of Interest: If the analysis discipline is structural and if the results of interest are the natural structural frequencies, then the analysis type is Modal. Similarly, if the interest is in determining the load at which the structure looses stability (buckles), then the analysis type is eigen value buckling. 3) GENERAL POSTPROCESSOR: In the General Postprocessor, the results of a solution at a specific time (if the problem is time dependent) are reviewed. Available options for review include graphical displays and a listing

Page5

of results. It is also possible to perform sorting and mathematical operations on the results. i) PLOT RESULTS: After the desired results set is read into the database, the result quantities can be reviewed through graphics displays. The types of graphics displays include deformed shapes (structural analysis), contour plots, vector displays (thermal), and path plots. ii) LIST RESULTS: Results of an ANSYS solution can be reviewed through lists. Although there are numerous different options for listing the results under postprocessors, only two of them are discussed in this section: nodal and element solutions. In order to list results computed at the nodes, the following menu path is used: Main Menu > General Postproc > List Results > Nodal Soln This brings up the List Nodal Solution dialog box. Once the user makes a selection as to what result quantities are to be reviewed and clicks on OK, the list appears in a separate window. Similar to nodal solution listings, the element results are listed by using the following menu path: Main Menu > General Postproc > List Results > Element Soln The usage of this option is similar to the nodal solution lists.

Hot Spots: Hot spots are the locations on entity that identify it for retrieval picking. For e.g.: If there are two adjacent elements the element that is picked is the one whose hotspot is closest to the mouse pointer for areas, volume and elements. The hotspot is the centroid location lines that have three spots, one is at the middle and one each nearer to the two ends.

Page6

If the hotspots of two or more entities are coincident picking that location will bring up the multiple entities dialog box by pressing the next or previous button. You can cycle through the coincident entities until the desired entities is highlighted. Then press ok to pick that entity.
