How to convert Workbench/Explicit Dynamics solution in Ansys Mechanical?

    • wangwang

      Thanks for reading.


      I already know that my project would need user defined command, in other word, APDL in the next step.


      Now, my current project is about impacting and I want to achieve a cohesive behavior  during the process. I am using Explicit Dynamics analysis component in Workbench. But I find that there is not a embeded cohesive behavior inside of Explicit Dyanmics and I couldn't insert APDL in Explicit Dynamics module.


      So, how can I convert my solution in Ansys Mechanical? Because I heard about that Ansys mechanical or Ansys APDL could solve project from a bottom aspect, like you could always select your element type and input user defined command.


      Thanks for suggestion.

      See this Discussion.

      You cannot use MAPDL commands in the Explicit Dynamics Solver. They both are different solvers.

      Thank you. You are right, I know that I cannot input MAPDL in Explicit Dynamics module, so that's the reason I asked how to transfer my solution data from Explicit Dynamics into Ansys Mechanical APDL, the most classical FEA software from Ansys corporation. Because I know that Ansys Mechanical APDL could use MAPDL commands and also could simulate impingement process. And I could use MAPDL commands in Ansys Mechanical APDL to postprocess my transferred simulation result.

      I am not sure did I clearly express my question.
