How can I *GET the normal pressure of a WB bearing load in ANSYS?
When I *GET the element pressure it is always the same.

The bearing load is a constant directed pressure applied with SURF154.<br>That is the value being retrieved with *GET. The only way to retrieve the normal component<br>of pressure...

Why is *GET of node count after modal analysis with CMS superelement wrong?

*GET is including the extra nodes used by the CMS superelement.

Why don't weak springs in my all beam model in Workbench 10.0 prevent zero pivots?
I am getting the error below.

*** ERROR *** CP = 0.844 TIME= 11:32:01
Smallest negative equation solver pivot term encountered at UZ DOF of
node 67. Check for an insufficiently constrained model.

The weak springs were being incorrectly attached to the BEAM188 orientation node.<br>This is fixed in 11.0 (Ref: Defect 55987.)

Why won't WB 10.0 let me use a previous thermal solution as the initial temps for a transient?

It¿s because you did a thermal-stress analysis. If you delete the normal stress<br>result quantity it works.

Why does the WB 10.0 GUI seems to hang while mapping temperatures?
The customer is performing a thermal-stress analysis within Simulation 10.0.
The Solution Information window indicates that the thermal temperatures are
being transferred to the structural mesh by providing the following feedback for each node:


The customer's model has over 250k nodes and it seems like the solution information window
is hanging trying to echo that information for each node. It turns out that we are able to determine
that the solution completed by going directly to the solve.out file in the solver working directory, but
looking at the solution information window, it was hung at the point where it was echoing the temperature
data being applied to the nodes. He is therefore unable to view results of the model in DS.

There was a error in 10.0 that could cause this. In a thermal-stress analysis,<br>a BF command is issued for each node. At 10,0 we forgot to set a /NOPR before the BF's were...

Why does a WB 11.0 solution fail when I request mid-side noded shells?

Mid-side noded shells is a beta feature that unfortunately will not be<br>supported in 11.0.

How does one do a coupled HF-thermal-structural modal

Why can't I reset RSYS,SOLU to RSYS,0 after a psd analysis? Somehow

How do you set up a nested rotation in CFX-10.0?

Why does this tapered BEAM188 model give the message below that
integration point is outside of end stations?

What is wrong with this 3 conductor coplanar wave guide model? I am using
the new modal port feature in ANSYS 10.0. Is my voltage and current path defined
correctly to obtain the characteristic impedance of the modal port?

If the outer conductors are not grounded you will have mixed<br>modes (3 modes possible.) This could cause poor results compared to<br>a benchmark solution. If there is no lossy...

Class 3 Error

The local values of a boundary mass source are incorrect when using the Mass Flux option and the source is defined as a function of position (x,y,z).

This is due to a memory overwrite in the solver data structures when using the Mass Flux option for boundary sources. Note that this also applies to Mass Flux boundary sources defined with User CEL Functions which use the same variables passed

WORKAROUND:<br>No workaround is currently available.<br><br>FIXED IN:<br>ANSYS CFX Release 11.0 Update 1.

Do you have an example demonstrating a procedure for using surface losses calculated by a HF electromagnetic modal analysis of a cavity as heat source for a thermal analysis of the cavity walls?


The attached input file demostrates a procedure using physics environments and the LDREAD command. Use of the SFSCALE command is also used successfully used to scale surface flux from the HF emag results which has arbitrary amplitude due to normalization

Q. I submitted an FSI analysis using FLOTRAN and ANSYS. The case appears to run correctly but the analysis terminates with messages "Missing parameter= ." and " Undefined parameter used as boundary condition.". I reproduced the error on release 10.0 and 11.0.

A. This is due to a bug in the MFS setup with FLOTRAN. The workaround is to reverse the order of the field solutions. Since the problem you submit is essentially driven by the solid, the first FLOTRAN solution is essentially a trivial one. But it doesn't hurt anything and takes little time.

It is not clear from the documentation whether you can use the hyperelastic curve-fitting routines
with compressive test data. If so, how should the data be entered? Would you reverse the signs
of compressive uniaxial test data and enter them as positive equi-biaxial tensile data?

For the uniaxial test, just start with the most negative strain and keep increasing to zero strain<br> and then continue on in the positive range (see attached ANSYS 10.0 example). ...

I have a tab-delimited text file containing many stress-strain data points. I would like to use this data to define some kind of nonlinear material property law in an ANSYS/LS-Dyna explicit dynamics analysis. One of the most promising options I see is the piecewise linear plasticity model (TB,PLAW,,,,8 - see Piecewise Linear Plasticity Model in the ANSYS/LS-Dyna Guide). One of the 3 documented suboptions for specifying nonlinear stress stain data for this option is to use "curves" defined by EDCURVE. Given the form of the data I have been provided, this is probably the most convenient suboption.

The problem I am having is that it is only possible to read the tab delimited data from the textfile into a table array (thsi is done using *TREAD). But creating a curve with EDCURVE is only possible using array parameters. What I can't figure out is how to get table array data into a pair of array parameters.


The attached files demonstrate use of *VFUN to copy columns of table arrays into array parameters, followed by the definition of the power law piecewise nonlinear stress strain data for ANSYS/LS-Dyna.
