Interface elementes in circular area

    • Ana_Pereira


      I have a 3D model in wich I created interface elements. This ones are in a circular area and that is why I need this elements (INTER205) to have a cylindrical coordinate system.

      I need a coordinate system alligned with the element to check the results, I can not change the element coordinate system. ESYS doesn't work for that kind of element.

      Can you please help me?

      Thanks in advance,

      Hi Ana (), nThanks a lot for connecting with us using Ansys Learning Forum. nBased on your question, I assume that you want to have cylindrical coordinate system and then assign it to be elemental coordinate system. nFor this you can use following commands,local,11,1 !! for creating cylindrical local coordinate system and assigning its id as 11nesys,11 !!assigning element system as 11, above created cylindrical systemnnI hope this helps. nRegards,nSamirnHow to access Ansys help linksnGuidelines for Posting on Ansys Learning Forumn
