How To Add A Displacement Value To A Part In ANSYS Mechanical(Illustrated Expression)

In this article we will show you how to add displacemet values to various features of a geometry that opened in ANSYS Mechanical. Displacement values are generally used for calculating the stress values at the defined displacement or deformation of the part. So it is very important tool of ANSYS to see the reverse results of applied stresses deformation values. Displacement value is a boundry condition of the finite element analysis. So defining the displacement values correctly is very important.

So you will learn how to define displacement values to parts correctly in ANSYS Mechanical.


How To Define Displacement In ANSYS Mechanical?

Part that must be displaced.

Consider we want to deform the above part from top of its face. So we need to assign a displacement value to do it.

To apply displacement to a part in ANSYS Mechanical, right click on the analysis system(Static Structural in here). Then hover your Mouse cursor on Insert tab as shown by red arrow above and click on the Displacement as shown by red box above.

Select geometries to apply Displacement.

We selected our face. After seecting the whole geometric features that you want to apply displacements, click on Apply button on Geometry section as shown by red arrow above.

Enter your displacement values.

To define displacement, we need to enter the X, Y and Z components of displacement as shown by red box above. Also we could enter one displacement if we select Normal To from Define By section in ANSYS Mechanical.

Entered displacement values in ANSYS Mechanical

So we entered 5, 10 and 15 m values of displacements as shown by red box. Also you can see the resultant of displacement value. After that point we can solve the analysis according to the displacement values that entered in ANSYS Mechanical.

Applying displacements to parts suraces, edges etc. is very easy as you can see in ANSYS Mechanical.
