How To Create A New Material In ANSYS(Illustrated Expression)

When you are doing various analyses in ANSYS, generally use materials that needed to have enough material property information in the Engineering Data. Sometimes, to can not find your material in the ANSYS materials library. In this situation you need to create your own material with the material properties informations that you have already in ANSYS. In this text you will learn how to create a new material in ANSYS and how can you add properties to your newly created material in ANSYS. If you follow the below informations and example, you will learn how to create and define all the properties of your new material in ANSYS.

How To Create A New Material In ANSYS?

Click on Engineering Data

To start the creation of a new material in ANSYS, double click on the Engineering Data from your analysis in the Workbench shown by red arrow above.

Click on Engineering Data Sources

Click on the Engineering Data Source tab as shown by red arrow above then click on the click here to add a new library to ‘create your own material library’ inside the ANSYS as shown in red box.

Form a material library in ANSYS

Enter your new material library name and press enter. There will be a screen appeared, enter your .xml file name as shown by red arrow above, then click on Save(Kaydet means Save in Turkish J) to create your new material in ANSYS.

Create your new material in ANSYS.

After the creation of your new material library in Matlab, you just tick on the place that shown by green box above. To create your new material inside this library, click on ‘Click here to ad a new material’ as shown in red box above.

Add material properties to your nw material in ANSYS

To add material properties to your new material in ANSYS, you need to just drag a material property to ‘Property’ tab as shown by red arrow from Toolbox region in the red box above. Also untick the ‘Filter Engineering Data’ that filters lots of material properties which you can not see in Toolbox.

Adjust units etc. of your new material

For example we added a Density property to our new material, then you just input your value as shown by red arrow then select your unit for your new material property as shown in red box in ANSYS.

Yoo can enter your material values as tabular basis

Also you can add your new material property as tabular data as shown by red arrow above. For example we defined our Density of new material in ANSYS as tabular data that changing with the temperature which is showing the Value is Tabular as in red box above in ANSYS.

Save your material to your material library.

When you complete the creation of a new material in ANSYS, just untick the newly created material library by you as shown in red box above, then save the changes by clicking on the Yes as shıwn by red arrow to finish your creation a new material in ANSYS.

This is your newly created material in ANSYS.

Your new material is created, you can use this newly created material in ANSYS analyses.
