Defining Force That Changes With Time In ANSYS Mechanical(Illustrated Expression)

In this article of Mechanical Base we will show how to define Force values that changes with time in ANSYS Mechanica. To define forces that change with time, you need to enter values of forces in Tabular Data. We will show you how to do it in ANSYS Mechanical. You know that force is a boundry condition in the pyhsical finite element analysis(FEA) systems. So defining force value that complies with real physical system is very important to obtain correct results from analysis.

How To Define Force That Changes With Time In ANSYS Mechanical?

Click on force

To assign a force that changes with time to your part in ANSYS Mechanical, you need to open the Mechanical interface. In this Mechanical interface, you need to right click to your analysis system(in this example, it is Static Structural) as shown above. Then you need to hover your Mouse at Insert as shown, then click on the Force as shown by blue box above in ANSYS Mechanical.

Click on a face of a feature in ANSYS Mechanical part

Select your feature in your part such as selected as a face as in this example above as shown by blue arrow. The geometry selection as done by Geometry tab in force assignation that changes with time command as shown by red arrow. When you select the face to apply force, click apply in Geometry tab in ANSYS Mechanical.

Select Tabular(Time) option for each component in ANSYS Mechanical.

You ca assign your Force to bodies as Components or Vectors that you can select select from Define By section. In this example, we selected it as Components. Click on little pop-up menu as shown by red arrow above then click on Tabular(Time) option as shown in red box.

Select Tabular Data for each components in ANSYS Mechanical.

Do the same thing in former step to assign a force that changes with time for each components as shown in red box above.

Enter your force values in each time step.

You can adjust the time from Tabular Data and you can add a time row as shown by red arrow above. Press Enter button from your keyboard after creating a time step as shown by red arrow above. Enter your whole force values for each components in each time row as shown by red box above in ANSYS Mechanical.

Definition of Force values that changes with time for each X, Y and Z components is very easy like that in ANSYS Mechanical. So you can create very realistic physical models in ANSYS Mechanical with this principle.
