Mass of beam elements in Ansys Workbench 19.2

    • cfjaer


      I am pretty new to Ansys and I am struggling with some basics. My task is to perform a critical speed analysis of a rotating shaft. To start with i modeled the shaft as a beam model with corresponding cross sections. In addition some point masses with Inertia were introduced. Since mass and inertia distribution are essential I would like to check mass, CoG and inertia of the shaft before I run the model. Ideally I want to select a set of beam and point mass elements and check the mass of these sub structures.

      I was not able to find the measure mass icon/function in Ansys workbench 19.2.
