for the assessment of our course in Finite Elements, we need to analyze an elevator torque arm for an aircraft (Cessna 182) in Ansys with the following description:
"It had been hypothesised that a good approximation of a bearing load can be created using a Pressure - on Lines type loading. You have been tasked to check and see if this is the case and hence prove or disprove the hypothesis. To make the process as efficient as possible, the geometry shown below should be used to test the hypothesis ."March 25, 2021 at 2:45 pmDave LoomanAnsys EmployeeThe surface effect elements, SURF153 (2d) and SURF154 (3d) are used to apply this type of loading. The surface effect elements can be created by selecting the nodes of the bearing surface and using the ESURF command to create them. The elements are complicated, so finding an example in the doc. or by doing a google search on 'surface effect element in ansys' is advised.nViewing 1 reply thread
