In this webinar, we will demonstrate a multiphysics simulation for crack propagation analysis. You will learn how a multiphysics workflow in Ansys Workbench — integrated with Ansys Mechanical and Ansys Fluent — can be established for this purpose. Our SMART (separating morphing and adaptive remeshing technology) crack growth capability will be employed to analyze crack growth due to thermo-mechanical fatigue (TMF).
The webinar will take you through an illustrative workflow using a turbocharger application to explain:
Fluid mechanics analysis (for the determination of temperature and pressure distribution on surfaces)
Thermal analysis (for the calculation of full temperature fields)
Stress analysis (for the delivery of full displacement and stress fields and to find the most highly stressed areas)
SMART crack growth analysis (for determination of fracture parameters, crack path and component lifetime after crack initiation)
