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

In this article we will show you how to define a Remote Force to a geometry that changes with time in ANSYS Mechanical. You can assign Remote Forces from Tabular Data that different force values at each time step. So you can define very realistic force values according to the time as real physical systems. Remote forces are boundry conditions in finite element analysis(FEA) so it is very important to define them correctly to obtain realistic results.

How To Define Remote Forces That Change With Time In ANSYS Mechanical?

Click on Remote Force

To add or apply Remote Force that changes with time on a geometry in ANSYS Mechanical, you need to right click on analysis system(Static Structural in here) and hover the cursor on Insert button as shown by red arrow above. Click on Remote Force as shown by red box from the list.

Select the geometric feature.

Select the geometric feature to apply Remote Force that changes with time then click Apply on Geometry tab as shown by red arrow above.

Enter your Remote Force that changes with time place in X, Y and Z.

You could define the remote force’s place in 3D space by entering X, Y and Z coordinates in ANSYS Mechanical.  We entered 5, 5 and 10 mm of coordinates respectively.

Click on Tabular(Time) method.

You can define Remote Force as Components or Vector. We will define it as Vector in this example. Click on little pop-up menu as shown by red arrow above then click on the Tabular(Time) selection as shown in red box to define Remote Force that changes with time in ANSYS Mechanical.

Enter your Force values to Tabular Data.

You can add a time as shown by red arrow above as Tabular Data row, then you can enter a force value next to that time as shown in red box above to create Remote Force that changes with time in ANSYS Workbench.

Specify direction of Remote Force that changes with time.

Click on direction section and select a direction as shown in red box above then click on Apply button as shown by red arrow.

Application of a Remote Force that changes with time is easy like that.
