Class 3 Error

If you have more than one fluid and you specify Cartesian velocity components for a specific fluid on an Opening boundary condition, then the simulation results may not be what you expect.

Fluid-specific Cartesian velocity components on openings are always applied in the rotating frame of reference, regardless of the Frame Type specified for the bounda

Is there a way to turn off the backup file generation in WB Simulation?

You can avoid this by saving the analysis before solving or any action that creates a backup. The backup operation is really just a folder rename/move so you can work very efficiently still as...

I need to create a general joint in Workbench Simulation, but I do not have a rigid-flex dynamic license. Can this be done with a command object?

Q. My old 2D AUTODYN models can be resumed in ANSYS AUTODYN 11.0 SP1, but the RUN button is grayed out (greyed out), so I cannot re-run them. The cycle 0 (cycle zero) files are fine, it is just that I cannot run them. In fact, I can create the exact same model from scratch and that will run, but if I get out of ANSYS and get back in, the model will no longer run. Is this a licensing problem?

A. Yes. A similar error was first reported in Defect 61187 and was fixed in AUTODYN build "e," but it seems that at least this new problem exits in build "g." Therefore, the fix is to download AUTODYN build "h" from the ANSYS Customer Portal. The new error is that ANSYS tries to check out a 2D license, but none exists in 11.0, as the 3D license is now used for both 2D and 3D, so the code then checks out a license like "acdi_adprepost," which does not permit solving. Once again, the only known fix for this is to download AUTODYN 11.0 build "h" form the Customer Portal. We apologize for the inconvenience this licensing error has caused you.

My PIPE18 and PIPE60 models do not give the correct reactions when I set KEYOPT(8)=1=(Internal and external pressures do not cause loads on end caps). That is, when the endcaps are removed, the reactions are wrong. Why?

Q: We are still a bit unclear on how to define hollow cone sprays in CFX..

I would like to inject 4 cones of fuel, a solid cone in annulus 1, and hollow cones in annuli 2 to 4. We want to inject from the indicated injection plane.
In the definition for the particle injection region, should the "Injection Center" be point A or point B.

Does the "Injection Center" define the actual origin of the spray, or does it indicate the axial position of the injection plane/point?

If the injection center locates the plane of injection, then how is the spray angle defined?

Where is the spray angle referenced to for a particular injection annulus?

Also, In the particle injection definition box, there is single input for velocity magnitude. How do I assign the axial and theta velocity components for each annulus? - JCOOPER

The injection center locates the plane of the injection, so the injection point will be at B in the diagram<br><br>There are two angles that can be specified for particle...

I am trying to run the Cartesian Shrinkwrap tutorial in ANSYS ICEM CFD 11 SP1 on a 64-bit AMD opteron platform with 64-bit Linux installed.

What does the error message related to INTER194 elements mean?


There was a code error that generated this message in 11.0SP1. It has been corrected at 12.0. The only workaround is to replace the gasket with solid elements and use a hyperelastic material model.
