Ansys Workbech – Symmentry

      Hi,


      I am doing a pressure vessel analysis. I made that model in some other cad software and imported it in Ansys. Due to the geometry is symmetry I used only 1/4 of the model by using the symmetry option.


      While I am doing analysis I applied only Pressure load and did not specify any boundary conditions. It runs successfully and shows the result.


      I have a doubt how the Boundary conditions are assigned by Ansys WB?


      Whatever I did is right or not?


      I want to specify boundary conditions or not?

      by applying symmetry you already fixed displacements in those two planes, right? I would recommend fixing displacement in the third direction as well but seems like your model is converging without that?

      Hi,


      Yes in the analysis I didn't specify any of the boundary conditions. Just I apply load and solved it gives the result. That's why I don't know what is the boundary conditions it took automatically.

      What kind of element and geometry are you using?n
