Ansys Multiphysics Simulation for Crack Propagation Analysis
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)
