How to choose between Static Structural and Transient Structural?
I want to perform a coupled thermal structural analysis. For this, I doing the transient thermal analysis first and then I am importing the temperature results to the structural analysis. The structural analysis has only temperature loads and a fixed support at one face. But I could not decide whether to use static structural or transient structural in this case. I know that in transient structural, the inertia effects are considered but how do I find out if the inertial effects are significant or not in my system? My model is big and hence when I try to perform transient structural, it takes days to solve it.
I have already gone through the Ansys documentation pages on the analysis explanation. I would appreciate any help that would help me understand it better.
