Import pressure data using external data

    • Saeid Khadem Moshir

      I am goint to import pressure data from an excel file. I use external data to import pressure data. I have 78 data points while the ansys only gets 11 points. I was wondering if anybody help me how to import more number of data points.

      This (11 rows) is often what is shown in the table inside the external data.


      The pressure have or could be all imported still, and the way to check is to go to mechanical and check the imported laod/pressure object and the summary of the import.

      All the best

      Thank you Erik, 
      I have another question. the valuse of the imported pressure in excel will be imported in the ansys as the nodal pressure or pressures on the points. Becasue, I try to apply some pressure data points on a line, for example (0,0.5,0), (0.1,0.5,0), (0.2,0.5,0). (0.3,0.5,0), (0.4,0.5,0). I try to import pressure data like this in excel, when I import it in ansys and see the imported load distribution, I see something else. Could ypu please help me regarding this issue?
      Thank you
