Static Structural Simulation of Polymer
Dear ANSYS Forum
I am trying to simulate the deformation of a Control layer made of polymer acting under the influence of two pressures (one is atmospheric pressure and the other is a higher pressure due to air in a chamber). It is a symmetric design so I just took a quarter section of the design and applied symmetry boundary condition. I switched on "Large deformation" since I am working on polymer. The simulation looks very straightforward but for some reason I am not able to get good results so I have decided to seek your help. I have attached the WorkBench file (ANSYS 2019R1).
This is the geometry with the boundary conditions:
This is the result I get:
This is the shape I am expected to get:
The maximum directional deformation I am expected to get is anything between 0.2mm to 3mm. Please see the attached WorkBench file and thank you for your help
