When you are doing structural FEA analyses in ANSYS® Mechanical, you can be curious about the deformation results. ANSYS® provides a very useful deformation result tool that you can easily add to your solutions. Here, we show how to see the deformation results in ANSYS® Mechanical, and we will show you the most important options about the deformation results in ANSYS® Mechanical.
In structural analyses, you can add deformation result into your analysis.
As you see above, right-click on the ‘Solution’, hover your mouse on the ‘Insert’ tab, then open the pop-up menu called ‘Deformation’ and select one of the deformation options;
If you select the ‘Total Deformation’, there are a bunch of options about it. As you see above, if you have multiple parts in ANSYS® that can be an assembly, you can select an individual geometry from the graphics interface to see the deformation results related to this part.
If you select the ‘Directional Deformation’ result, you can select the orientation as you see above, in which you want to see the deformation results.
If you click on ‘Solve’ you will see the deformation result like below. But first, you needed to build all the finite element model.
In the ‘Results’ and ‘Information’ section, you can see all the required information about the maximum, minimum, and average deformation results.
And you can see the step and time information related to these deformation results also.
Seeing deformations in ANSYS® FEA analysis is very simple as you see above.
