Defining Rotational Velocity To A Body In ANSYS Mechanical(Illustrated Expression)

In dynamic analyses ANSYS Mechanical, definition of physical conditions in a very good way is very important thing like meshing. Because, these physical definitions will be boundry conditions in Finite Element Analyses in ANSYS. In this article, we will show you how to define rotational velocity to a body in ANSYS Mechanical.

How To Define Rotational Velocity 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.

Define required parameters for rotational velocity in ANSYS Mechanical.

After clicking on ‘Rotational Velocity’ in ANSYS Mechanical, select your components and bodies that will be rotated as in green box. You just need to select bodies and parts, then click on ‘Apply’ button on ‘Geometry’. There are two of option to define rotational velocity to selected components in ANSYS Mechanical;

  • Vector: As you see above, you need to select an axis of rotation from geometry or coordinate systems as shown by blue arrow above. Then you need to select the direction of rotation as shown in blue box above. Direction of rotation will be changed if you click on that ‘Arrow icon’. And click on ‘Apply’ at ‘Axis’. Enter your rotational velocity ‘Magnitude’ as shown in red box.
Definition of rotational velocity by components in ANSYS Mechanical.
  • Components: You can define your axis of rotation as components if you select ‘Define By’ as ‘Components’ as shown by green arrow above. Then you need to enter X, Y and Z magnitudes of rotational velocity as shown by green box. Then you need to select the place of axis by entering X, Y and Z components again as shown in red box. The resultant is shown by yellow arrow in ANSYS Mechanical.

Definition of rotational velocity in ANSYS Mechanical is very easy like above. Do not forget to leave your comments and questions below about definition of ‘Rotational Velocity’ in ANSYS Mechanical!
