Surface coating meaning

    • KevinsYuan

      Hi everyone,

      i find out this option (Modell - Geometry - insert "Surface Coating") here, can anyone tell me what is the meaning of "Suface Coating" in Ansys?

      I just intressted about the stress underneath the coating, will the result be the same with a real geometry (in [um] thin) of surface coating if i use this option. The thickness of coating is to small relative to other parts, for example 5 um vs. 20 mm, sothat i have difficulty to mesh the entire part.

      Thank you very much!

      Please read this page of the ANSYS help.

      Please read this Discussion about how to use the link above.

      The answer is yes, you can get the effect of a thin coating of some other material to a specified thickness on top of a solid body. You can look at the stress on the surface of the solid as well as the surface of the coating.
