Dear all, i'am trying to model a curved beam supported by torsional spring-damper elements and longitudinal spring-damper elements in ANSYS Workbench. I want to do an harmonic analysis on it but i need to verify if the torsional spring-damper element is defined correctly.
In the ANSYS Forum, i've found that i can't define a Torsional Spring-element in workbench, but i can convert a Longitudinal Spring-damper to torsional by inserting a Command Object under the spring-damper and forcing it to be Torsional. I added longitudinal spring and added command right below it but i need to verify if the command is defined correctly.
The torsional spring is arounf the X axis and the added command looks like the following:
Does any body have any idea on it?
Thank you so much for the help.January 21, 2022 at 4:11 pmErik KostsonAnsys EmployeeHi
This post shows how to use the torsion spring inside Mechanical (no need for apdl commands):
All the best
