Help in studying displacement of a 3d cylindrical column

    • Saufiuddin

      Hi, I want to study the displacement of a cylinder column with a fixed base due to an oncoming wind using the concept of vortex-induced vibration.

      This is a project on vortex bladeless wind turbine, I am to study the effects of various size cylinder and the displacement from certain wind speed.

      I am to first to do the 3d model in SolidWorks, and then import the structure to Ansys. My problem is I do not know how to set up in Ansys to study the displacement. Can someone guide me or lead me to a tutorial in doing so?


      I am relatively new to Ansys. I have only done the pressure and velocity distribution of an airfoil, and a bit of meshing.

      The picture attached should give an idea on what I should be working on.

      Any help would be great. Thank you
