The functionality of Ansys Classic has been transferred to the Workbench environment so that the user can control all compressive support parameters in a user-friendly way. The user can choose between two different types of contact elements CONTA174 and CONTA178 and a full spectrum of advanced settings such as: Contact algorithm, Detection method, Stiffness and many others. Thanks to this extension, advanced analyses with compressive support can be performed without the need to create additional macros, directly from Ansys Workbench menu.

ADVANTAGES AND SAVINGS

  • Ansys Classic functionality inside Workbench environment;
  • Easy access to all key options and real constants of element type Conta174 and Conta178;
  • Tabular data of contact stiffness (switching between the load steps is possible);
  • Easy-to-use even for inexperienced engineers;
  • No need to use APDL language;

TIME SAVINGS

Eliminating the need for APDL to use advanced features speeds up model preparation, eliminates errors, and allows less experienced engineers to perform complex analyses without having to read the extensive Ansys documentation.
