Introduction to ANSYS Meshing
|Date||June 11, 2013 (1 day)|
Mesh generation is one of the most critical aspects of engineering simulation. Too many cells may result in long solver runs, and too few may lead to inaccurate results. ANSYS Meshing technology provides a means to balance these requirements and obtain the right mesh for each simulation in the most automated way possible. ANSYS Meshing technology has been built on the strengths of stand-alone, class-leading meshing tools. The strongest aspects of these separate tools have been brought together in a single environment to produce some of the most powerful meshing available.
Different physics requires different meshing approaches. Fluid dynamics simulations require very high-quality meshes in both element shape and smoothness of sizes changes. Structural mechanics simulations need to use the mesh efficiently as run times can be impaired with high element counts. ANSYS Meshing has a physics preference setting ensuring the right mesh for each simulation.
Course Aim: The ANSYS Meshing training course is for users that want to create and modify their meshes in preparation for analysis in ANSYS Workbench.
Course Contents: Topics included in the training are:
- Work with ANSYS Meshing Platform, with full understanding of its GUI
- Understand the different meshing methods available for 2D and 3D geometries
- Create tetrahedral meshes
- Create hexahedral meshes
- Create inflation (boundary) layer meshes close to walls
- Apply advanced controls to refine and coarsen the mesh in different regions of the domain
- Examine the quality of the mesh
Lectures are followed by tutorials using the software.
Prerequisites: A technical education and background is recommended but an engineering degree
is not required. Skills in creating and modifying geometry for simulation purposes is required and can be gained having
attended the ANSYS DesignModeler course on the previous day.
Recommended follow on courses: A course in the ANSYS Solver that the mesh is intended to be
