Hello guys,

Does anyone know about the tutorial how to design tubular (cylinder) single lap joint in Ansys?

I have searched the related tutorial on youtube but it still can't answer my problem.

If you know or you can, please contact me by email : hakabobby@gmail.com

I really need your help. Thank you

I attach picture here to give you an illustration.

Hello bobby,

What loads do you have to apply to that structure?

1) Draw the geometry in a CAD system. If you have no CAD system, then start with SpaceClaim. Create a component for the larger pipe, and create that solid body, create a component for the smaller pipe and create that solid body. Then create a component for the joint filler, and create that solid body.

2) Bring that Geometry into a Static Structural analysis. Mesh it, apply loads and supports.  Create contacts between the bodies. Solve. Review results.

Note: ANSYS staff are not permitted to open attachments, so please Insert Image directly into the post.

Hello Peteroznewman,

Thank you for replying my question.

I would like to apply dynamics load to that structure so I will do modal analysis.

I've tried to draw geometry in Ansys, but it's hard for me how to make 3 parts then connect them together?

*by the way the picture that you sent to me was same with my 2D sketch problem

You have to spend some time learning the SpaceClaim CAD system. There are tutorials here.

Send the values for R, c, L, t1, t2 and t3 so I can show you.

Yes sir thank you for your advice. Currently, I spend my time to learn about the SpaceClaim CAD system.

here the values for that design :

R= 12.5 mm

c= 20 mm

L= 250 mm

t1= 1.0 mm

t2= 1.0 mm

t3= 0.2 mm

thank you in advance for your help.
