In dynamic analyses ANSYS® Mechanical, the definition of physical conditions in a very good way is a very important thing like meshing. Because these physical definitions will be boundary 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.
If you want to add rotational velocity to a part or component in ANSYS® Mechanical, click on the analysis tab shown by the red arrow above which is ‘Static Structural’ here, then click ‘Insert’ in the red box above. There will be a list opened, click on ‘Rotational Velocity’ as shown by the green arrow.
After clicking on ‘Rotational Velocity’ in ANSYS® Mechanical, select your components and bodies that will be rotated as in the green box. You just need to select bodies and parts, then click on the ‘Apply’ button on ‘Geometry’. There are two option to define rotational velocity to selected components 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 the definition of ‘Rotational Velocity’ in ANSYS® Mechanical!
