How To Apply Line Pressure In ANSYS® Mechanical(Illustrated Expression)

In this text, we will show you how to apply line pressure to geometry edges or lines in ANSYS® Mechanical. Line pressures are generally applied as theoretical applications. In real life, there is no example of the Line Pressure phenomenon. Also, line pressure will be a boundary condition in the finite element analysis in ANSYS®. So it is very important to apply the Line Pressure boundary condition correctly in finite element analysis.


How To Define Line Pressure In ANSYS® Mechanical?

Select the Line Pressure command in ANSYS® Mechanical.

To apply line pressure in ANSYS® Mechanical, you need to right-click on the analysis system(Static Structural in this example). Hover your cursor on the Insert tab as shown by the red arrow then click on the Line Pressure command.

Select linear objects in ANSYS® Mechanical.

As you can see above, we could only select linear edges on geometry in ANSYS® Mechanical as shown by the red little box above. After the selection of edges and linear objects, click on the Apply button a shown by the blue arrow.

Select the line pressure definition method in ANSYS® Mechanical.

You need to enter the value of pressure. You can enter the pressure value as components that you need to define all the values in X, Y, and Z coordinates. You can also enter the pressure value as a vector that you need to select a vector from geometry and enter a pressure value. Also, you can enter a tangential pressure value to the line selected in ANSYS® Mechanical.

Entered pressure values in ANSYS® Mechanical.

We entered our pressure values as components as shown by the blue arrow. And also you can see the resultant of entered pressure values to the linear geometry in ANSYS® Mechanical.


So applying line pressure in ANSYS® Mechanical is very basic like that.
