Creating Named Selections In ANSYS Mechanical(Illustrated Expression)
Named selections are very important parameters in ANSYS Mechanical analyses. You can define your named selections on geometry and you can use them at further boundry condition definitions in ANSYS Mechanical, Fluent etc. It is very useful tool to define boundry conditions in various interfaces of ANSYS. In this text we will show you how to create Named Selections in ANSYS Mechanical.
How To Create Named Selections In ANSYS Mechanical?
To generate named selections on ANSYS geometries, right click on geometry’s model subtab as shown by red arrow above then click on ‘Create Named Selection’ option as shown in red box above.
Enter the name of your Named Selection after clicking on ‘Create Named Selection’. Define your name according to the boundry condition that will be defined on this named selection. For example we said to this ‘wall’ that we will use it in CFD etc.
The whole body of geometry is selected in ou Named Selection. Select your own geometric feature such as edges, faces vertexes according to your boundry condition in ANSYS Mechanical.
After selecting your own geometric features, click on ‘Apply’ button as shown by red arrow above.
The created Named Selection tab is shown by red box above. You can create Named Selections like that more than one in ANSYS Mechanical.
So you can understand that creating Named Selections in ANSYS Mechanical is very easy like that.
