Looking for Acoustic Extension for ANSYS Version 2020 R2
I need to model the interaction of an acoustic pressure wave with a polymer membrane to find out the displacement the acoustic wave it causes in it. So far, I have figured out that I should use Harmonic Response module to do such modeling. However, I noticed that the Acoustics extension is missing from the workbench, meaning, it's missing from the "Manage Extensions" window. And that happens to cause an issue that items such as "acoustic body" and "acoustic wave sources" are missing and I won't be able to add them to my model.
I have the ANSYS license through our school, and apparently, the acoustic extension does not come with the installation package provided by the school. Trying to find it online, I found the following link, which provides it for free:
However, it only includes up to V192.1, and the ANSYS I have installed using the installation package provided by school is V2020 R2.
I wonder if this mismatch of versions will possibly cause any errors or any issues in the accuracy of my Harmonic Response simulation. Also, I wonder if there is any way for me to obtain the Acoustics extension for V2020 R2 to avoid such mismatch.
I'd really appreciate it if someone could comment on this.
