How To Connect Different Analyses In ANSYS Workbench(Illustrated Expression)

In the process of making our analysis in ANSYS, we need to build up our analysis tree in ANSYS Workbench. Also you can do your only individual analysis in ANSYS by only one analysis system in ANSYS Workbench. In this text we will tell you how to combine different analyses in ANSYS Workbench to each other. You can do your analysis by using another analysis’ solution or mesh or only geometry.

How To Combine Different Analyses In ANSYS Workbench?

Taking an analysis to Ansys Project Schematic

For example we took a Static Structural analysis tool by dragging from toolbox to project schematic in Ansys Workbench as shown by green arrow.

And when we intended to take another analysis such as Harmonic Response to project schematic in ANSYS Workbench, there will placements appear to place your analysis in properly. If you place your analysis in green boxes as shown by red arrows, there will be no connection between previous analysis and Harmonic Response. Harmonic Response analysis will be an individual analysis in ANSYS Workbench.

But if you place your Harmonic Response analysis to the one of the places such as Engineering Data, Geometry, Model, Setup, Solution etc. like in blue box, you will build a connection between previous analysis and Harmonic Response in ANSYS Workbench.

Combining with Engineering Data: Your current analysis will take only the materials data from previous analysis, you could build your other analysis elements in different manner compared with previous analysis in ANSYS Workbench.

Combining with Geometry: Your current analysis will take also geometry of previous analysis along with Engineering Data in ANSYS Workbench.

Combining With Model: Your current analysis that you are combining with Static Structural will take Mesh structure of Static Structure analysis along with Geometry and Engineering Data in ANSYS Workbench.

Combining With Setup: Your current analysis will take boundry conditions of Static Structural such as forces, links etc. along with Model, Geometry and Engineering Data in ANSYS Workbench.

Combining With Solution: The extracted solutions of Static Structural analysis will be used as boundry condition in current analysis. So Engineering Data, Geometry, Model and Setup will be taken to current analysis in ANSYS Workbench.

Connected analyses in ANSYS Workbench

As you can see we could combine Harmonic Response analysis to Static Structural analysis’ Solution section. The solution section of Static Structural analysis used as Boundry condition in Harmonic Response’s Setup in ANSYS Workbench.

Connection with setup and solutions of an analysis in ANSYS

Bur as you can see above, if a Random Vibration analysis is tried to take to the project schematic in the blue box, we could not combine Random Vibration analysis with Setup or Solution section of Static Structure as shown by blue arrows. This means that, we could’nt use the all analyses’ solutions as boundry conditions to another analysis in ANSYS Workbench.
