I want to do a structural analysis of vibrating feeder in ANSYS. I am new to this platform, so kindly do suggest how to model and simulate the effects on a vibrating feeder. What are the steps I need to follow, and what should be the basic approach?

First define your simulation goal, what "effects" are you trying to simulate?
Are you trying to simulate the movement of the parts through the feeder?
Are you trying to analyze the fatigue life of the feeder bowl due to the vibration, assuming the weight of the parts being fed is insignificant (say lightweight plastic parts).
Those two goals imply two very different simulations.

I am trying to analyze the fatigue life of the feeder bowl due to the vibration, assuming the weight of the parts being fed is insignificant. I'm trying to figure out how to do this but unable to find any satisfactory results yet. It'be a great help if you can guide me through this.

Geometry. Do you have the geometry of the bowl and the support structure below that permits some motion?
Motion. Do you know the input motion at the base of the support structure? You need to know the displacement and frequency.
Material. Do you know the materials that the bowl and support structure are made from?
With that information, you can build a model that predicts the Harmonic Response of the bowl.
Please attach a project archive .wbpz file to your reply post with at least the geometry.
Also say what version of ANSYS you are on (18.2, 19.0) and if you are on the Student or a Research license.
