Inflation Meshing And Its Options In ANSYS® Meshing(Illustrated Expression)

Inflation meshing is a very useful tool to create mesh structures that are starting from faces or surfaces of geometries right inside to the below in ANSYS® Mesher.

There is some kind of options to create inflation meshing in ANSYS® Meshing and we will give the articles’ links from Mechanical Base that are showing how to apply these options. And also we will show you how to apply inflation meshing to a geometric surface in ANSYS® Meshing in this article.

How To Make Inflation Meshing In ANSYS® Mesher?

Create a ‘Named Selection’ to make inflation meshing in ANSYS® Mesher.

First of all, you need to create a named selection as in the red box above and select a face as shown by the red arrow for the inflation meshing in ANSYS® Mesher. This selected face will be the starting surface for inflation meshing in ANSYS®.

Select the ‘All Faces in Chosen Named Selection’ option for the inflation option.

To create Inflation Mesh structures in ANSYS® Meshing, click on the ‘Mesh’ tab as shown in the red box above then select the ‘All Faces in Chosen Named Selection’ option for Inflation in ANSYS® Meshing as above.

Select the named selection that you created in ANSYS® Mesher.

You can select the created named selection for inflation meshing in ANSYS® Meshing as shown by the red arrow above.

Choose one of the ‘Inflation Option’ from the little pop-up menu.

There are a bunch of ‘Inflation Options’ as you see above. These are the various inflation mesh creation methods, and you need to enter different values in these options to define or create your inflation mesh structure.

Total Thickness Inflation Option In ANSYS® Meshing: You can create inflation mesh structures by entering the values of ‘Number Of Layers’, ‘Growth Rate’ and ‘Maximum Thickness’. All the aspects of ‘Total Thickness’ are explained in the article. You can click on the link to learn the Total Thickness option.

First Layer Thickness Inflation Option In ANSYS® Meshing: You can create inflation mesh structures by entering the values of ‘First Layer Height’, ‘ Maximum Layers’, and ‘Growth Rate’. All the aspects of ‘First Layer Thickness’ are explained in the article. You can click on the link to learn the First Layer Thickness option.

Smooth Transition Inflation Option In ANSYS® Meshing: You can create inflation mesh structures by entering the values of ‘Transition Ratio’, ‘ Maximum Layers’, and ‘Growth Rate’. All the aspects of ‘Smooth Transition’ are explained in the article. You can click on the link to learn the Smooth Transition option.

First Aspect Ratio Inflation Option In ANSYS® Meshing: You can create inflation mesh structures by entering the values of ‘First Aspect Ratio’, ‘ Maximum Layers’, and ‘Growth Rate’. All the aspects of the ‘First Aspect Ratio’ are explained in the article. You can click on the link to learn the First Aspect Ratio option.

Last Aspect Ratio Inflation Option In ANSYS® Meshing: You can create inflation mesh structures by entering the values of ‘First Layer Heigth, ‘ Maximum Layers’ and ‘Aspect Ratio(Base/Heigth)’. All the aspects of the ‘Last Aspect Ratio’ are explained in the article. You can click on the link to learn the Last Aspect Ratio option.

Example of inflation mesh in ANSYS® Mesher.

For example, we selected the face that is shown by the red arrow above. We created the inflation mesh structure as shown by the green arrow with the default options of ‘Last Aspect Ratio’.
