Workbench Tutorial

Named Selections
And
Localized Loads

Introduction Named Selections


The ANSYS Workbench represents more than a
general purpose engineering tool.
It provides a highly integrated engineering
simulation platform.
Supports multiple multi-physics engineering
solutions.
Provides bi-directional parametric associativity
with most available CAD systems.
This exercise is designed to introduce you to the use
of Named Selections and Localized Loading in the
ANSYS Workbench

ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary

Purpose
This tutorial is incremental in nature
It is designed to introduce you to:
The nature and design of the ANSYS Workbench
User Interface
The concepts of ANSYS Workbench Projects and
Applets
The integrated nature of ANSYS Workbench
technology
The power of the ANSYS Workbench in using
applied parametric modeling and simulation
techniques to provide quality engineering solutions

Using Named Selections


The methods taught in this tutorial apply
equally well to both attached CAD and
DesignModeler files.
For the purposes of this tutorial we will be
using the DesignModeler file produced in
Exercise 2 of this tutorial.
When using attached CAD systems Named
Selections would be imported using tags,
labels or attributes from your CAD models.

Using Imprints
Imprinting is a method for defining discrete
localized areas in a CAD or DesignModeler
model to support partial or localize simulation
loads and constraints.
For the purposes of this tutorial we will be
using the DesignModeler file produced in
Exercise 2 of this tutorial.
When using attached CAD systems imprinted
patches can be applied to imported CAD
models.
