External Force in Ansys aqwa

    • ashwin1407


      I am using ansys aqwa 21 R1 .I am trying to import the external force to the aqwa by using .csv file . The magnitude of the force is the same at each time step(constant force) as shown below in the image. But after checking the .LIS file the imported external force is not the same as the force given in the .csv file. In the x direction, the imported force is 27640 N, but the LIS file shows 2052.6N. Why this much change is observed in the force? Please explain 

      Structure is connected to the sea bed via a universal joint and analysis is done for no wave condition.

      Hi Ashwin,


      Please try performing validation of the imported force. Also, you can try importing the applied force with node locations as well (not sure if you are already doing it).
