Best Practices for Meshing Complex Geometries in ANSYS Icepak - WebinarANSYS Icepak is a powerful CAE software tool that allows engineers to model electronic system designs, and perform heat transfer and fluid flow simulations on component-level, board-level or system-level applications. Many of these applications incorporate complex shapes and CAD geometries.
The complexity of the CAD geometry can be represented in Icepak using a combination of decomposition, de-featuring and CAD-shape–based strategies. Icepak ensures a body-fitted, accurate mesh representation for CAD geometries — for complex CAD shapes — using the powerful, unstructured mesher HD (hex-dominant) scheme. The multi-level mesh controls available with the mesher HD scheme —in combination with non-conformal meshing strategies — provide the Icepak user with the flexibility to adequately refine the mesh and balance trade-offs between computational cost and solution accuracy.
In this session, ANSYS experts share strategies to create good quality, body-fitted mesh for a variety of complex geometries including CAD geometries using the mesher HD scheme in Icepak.
