TAGGED: Discovery AIM
July 15, 2019 at 1:57 pmmicaelaolivetti31Subscriber
Hi, regarding the point mass condition in static analysis, I'm experiencing a problem. Assigning a mass to a point with its mass moment of Inertia, I get no results from AIM. The displacement is zero and the stress is zero, as well. I attach a simple example. Do I miss something? I need to simulate a concentrated load collocated remotely from my geometry. What's the best strategy? Thanks and regards🛈 This post originally contained file attachments which have been removed in compliance with the updated Ansys Learning Forum Terms & Conditions

Can you please share the model again. There seems to be an issue with the attachment and I am unable to access it.
Also, just to check, did you apply gravity in your model? In a static analysis, the added mass can only apply a load equivalent to its wight (M*g) if acceleration/gravity is also present in the analysis.

Gaurav_ANSYS , Hi! No, I didn't apply gravity in the model. I tried right now and it works. That was the problem, probably. I suggest to indicate this procedure in the manual and eventually add a warning message when you apply a point mass condition.
Thanks in advance and have a nice day
