I am running a Workbench simulation with the below project schematic. I have been exporting results from Fluent and Transient Structural by node number, but I noticed that the node number do not line up (even though they share the same mesh).
Why are the nodes numbered differently in Fluent and Transient Structural? Also, why are there more nodes in Transient Structural?
I understand that there are different ways of exporting data. I was just hoping to get a better insight of what exactly is going on in the simulation.October 5, 2020 at 12:44 pmKarthik RAdministratorHello, nAnsys Fluent is modeling the Fluid region where as Ansys Mechanical is modeling the solid structure. Each has its own individual mesh which is where the nodes are coming from. The overall node number in each mesh depends on the mesh resolution as well as the tool used to generate the mesh. nMay I ask the reason for your interest in the overall node numbers between Fluent and Mechanical?nThanks.nKarthiknOctober 5, 2020 at 6:36 pmhelen.durandSubscriberWe want to know whether we are importing the static or total temperatures and pressures when we used the feature that allows us to import loads in transient structural. nOctober 6, 2020 at 2:12 amKarthik RAdministratorThe node numbers would be different. However, try to plot the imported loads in Mechanical and compare them with your obtained solution from Ansys Fluent. These results should more or less match (depends on the interpolation and base mesh you are using).nI hope this helps.nThanks.nKarthiknOctober 6, 2020 at 2:46 amhelen.durandSubscriberThank you, Kremella.nHow do I list or plot the imported loads in Transient Structural?nI have tried inserting command objects like the following, but the values of pressure and temperature are all printed as zero. nThe same code written as text instead of an image:nALLSELn*GET,numOfNode,NODE,0,COUNT !
