Substructuring in ansys workbench


    • tumulpurwar

      Substructuring is a technique in which a stiffness matrix is used to replace a large section of a finite element model in order to reduce the overall cost of the analysis(in APDL).

      How to use such technique in Ansys mechanical?

      In Mechanical this is called 'Condensed Geometry'. Under "Model" you can insert 'Condensed Geoemtry'. Mechanical does a very good job of automatically identifying the master DOFs , file handling as well as expansion pass. Top-down substructuring has been supported for quite a while. Now you can also export the condensed geometry and re-use it.
