Defining Rotational Velocity As Tabular Data In ANSYS Mechanical(Illustrated Expression)

We explained how to directly define rotational velocity in ANSYS Mechanical. Definition of rotational velocity as tabular data in ANSYS is very helpful to obtain rotational velocity that changes with time. In this article, we will explain how to define rotational velocity in ANSYS Mechanical with tabular data.

How To Define Rotational Velocity As Tabular Data In ANSYS Mechanical?

Click on ‘Rotational Velocity’ in ANSYS Mechanical.

If you want to add rotational velocity to a part or component in ANSYS Mechanical, click on analysis tab shown by red arrow above which is ‘Static Structural’ here, then click ‘Insert’ in red box above. There will be a list opened, click on ‘Rotational Velocity’ as shown by green arrow.

Parameters for rotational velocity in ANSYS Mechanical.

To define rotational velocity to a component like above, you need to define required parameters in that section above. You need to select a geometry or body, definition method for rotational velocity such as ‘Vector’ or ‘Components’. All of these parameters are explained in this article. You can click and learn about them.

Select ‘Tabular(Time)’ for rotational velocity in ANSYS Mechanical.

We defined all the parameters same with example given in above article link. So if you want to define your rotational velocity as tabular data, click on little arrow button as shown by green arrow then select the ‘Tabular(Time)’ selection as shown by red arrow above in ANSYS Mechanical. So you can enter your changing values of rotational velocity with time from the table shown in red box. You can fill that table or extend that table like in Excel.

Definition of rotational velocity from table in ANSYS Mechanical.

For example, we defined rotational velocity changing with time from given table above. There is only 1 step, and this step is between 0-1 seconds. So you can only enter time values between 0 and 1. Otherwise, it will not be assigned in analyses step. We entered our rotational velocities as shown by above in ANSYS Mechanical.

Simply, definition of Rotational Velocity in ANSYS Mechanical is very simple like above. Do not forget to leave your comments and questions about ‘Rotational Velocity’ as tabular data in ANSYS Mechanical below!
