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

Inflation meshing is very useful tool to create mesh structures that is starting from faces or surfaces of geometries right inside to the below in ANSYS Mesher. There are 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 red box above and select a face as shown by red arrow for the inflation meshing in ANSYS Mesher. This selected face will be starting surface for inflation meshing in ANSYS.

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

To create Inflation Mesh structures in ANSYS Meshing, click on ‘Mesh’ tab as shown in 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 red arrow above.

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

There are 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 at the article. You can click on link to learn Total Thickness option.

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

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 ‘Last Aspect Ratio’ are explained at the article. You can click on link to learn Last Aspect Ratiooption.

Example of inflation mesh in ANSYS Mesher.

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