External Data Mapping in ANSYS Workbench and Mechanical

With the growing emphasis on multiphysics simulations throughout many industries, the need to map data from one application into an independent ANSYS Mechanical analysis is continually increasing. The results from many simulations are required as input to downstream Mechanical simulations. On the Workbench platform, the external data component system can be used to directly map this data in ANSYS 14.0. Some types of data that can be mapped to ANSYS Mechanical include temperature from a thermal Mechanical analysis, pressure from a CFD analysis and heat generation from an Emag analysis.
