Select Volumes within volumes in Ansys Mechanical APDL
My name is Mário Carvalho and currently I'm using Mechanical APDL for a FEM structural model. I created a code with APDL to create a model with certain geometries, based on parametric analysis. the problem is , when attributing the material properties to certain volumes . In the case of my model I have a layer of solid elements with embedded solid elements ( with different properties). the problem is that , if the layer is approximately the thickness of the solids embedded , I cannot find a way of selecting only the smaller volumes and attributing the correct material properties. Could please someone help? I cannot share images of the model due to confidentiality issues. I would be willing to have a short call with someone with expertise in Mechanical APDL.
