In this text you will find information about how to add different kinds of materials to your Mechanical analyses in ANSYS. Selecting a proper material for your analysis is very important thing in ANSYS and also you can create your own materials in ANSYS Workbench.


How To Add Different Materials In ANSYS?

Click on engineering data

To select materials for your analysis in ANSYS, click on Enginnering Data on your analysis on Workbench as shown by red arrow above.

Click on engineering data sources

To show the whole materials in ANSYS library, click on the Engineering Data Sources as shown by red arrow above.

ANSYS Material Library

These are the whole materials inside ANSYS that defined. Also this list will have created materials by you. Just click on one of this material libraries to select your material around them.
