Hi everybody,

I have some problems with the structural analysis of an drive bullwheel on Ansys.

How can I apply the load on the bullwheel groove

Tangential (constant) and normal components

I was thinking to apply the normal load using a prep>loads>define_loads>apply>FUNCTIONS but I'm not good at this option. Is it necessary to define a particular coordinate system?

## Coupled thermo-structural analysis of CFRP using ANSYS

Hi everyone,

does anyone know publications dealing with the coupled thermo-structural analysis (direct method) of CFRP using ANSYS?

## boundary condition in 3d model

here is a simple question

I have modeled the reduced section of a  tensile test specimen in 3D (a simple cylinder; falt surface in x-y plane, length in z direction).  I applied a load on one flat surface of the cylinder, and put the opposite flat surface as a symmetry plane.

When I plot the result after the simulation of a tensile test, the cylinder moved in the direction perpendicular to the application of the load.  I was expecting it only to increase in length in the z direction.

Is there any other boundary conditions I should have considered?

Hello

I am using ANSYS for structural ANALYSIS, I want to add PML or absorbing boundary condition in my simulation:

I have a look at help of ansys, there is absorbing boundary for Electermagnetic domain , Structural fluid ,...

I am not able to find the absorbing boundary condition only for structural domain .

Please can sb help me to know that I can add absorbing boundary condition for structural domain in ANSYS?

the second question:when I want to add complex value as an input how it will be possible in ANSYS,
