I want to perform static analysis of industrial automated storage for 1 ton pallet load. I don't much about structural analysis in ansys. if someone know how to proceed please tell me as soon as possible. I am attaching the image of model what I made in Pro-E.

I assume that the components of your model are all 3D solid bodies judging from your picture. I don't use Pro-E so what I say could be done there. However, I'm given SolidWorks 3D CAD models from the designers and I prepare it for FEA in ANSYS DesignModeler. So in this instance I'd make as many components as possible into 2D surface bodies (Mid-Surfaces) and use Surface Extensions to join up the mid-surface gaps. If you leave them as 3D solid bodies and mesh them as 1 element thick ANSYS will give you a warning message, the solution will take longer to run and be less accurate (all to do with element integration points). Then put as many components as possible into Multi-Body parts in DesignModeler. Which when in ANSYS Mechanical (or Structural or Professional depending upon your license) will reduce the amount of bonded contacts. Again I assume all your contacts are bonded and not non-linear contacts. Also that will make the mesh nodes conformal. Then just set up the supports and loads as required and solve. If the stresses in localized areas need resolving more accurately you can then use the new to version 15.0 shell-solid sub-modelling feature - see the tutorials on the ANSYS Customer Portal for the details. Also there's lots of presentations on the Customer Portal about things like making 2D Surface Bodies, Multi-Body parts, post-processing for 2D surface bodies etc - as an ANSYS customer you can (and should) download and read them all.

Dear siw,

I hope that you can help me to overcome my problem. In ANSYS Mechanical, I want to change default SOLID185 element to SOLSH190. My model is an solid fin or wing. I want to treat model as the shell or plate, not as the full solid model. I tried with APDL command insertion but unsuccessfully. What to do?

Thank you in advance.
All the best,
SF

I do not have access to ANSYS Mechanical right now so you'll have to try a quick demo for yourself to check this. I guess you can also do this with APDL, but I do not use that so cannot help there.

However, in ANSYS Meshing assign a Sweep mesh method to the thin solid body of interest. Then set Src/Trg Selection to either Automatic Thin or Manual Thin. You will then have Element Option available and if you set that to Solid I think that invokes the solid shell elements. Again, make a simple model and check for yourself by looking through the Solution Information > Solver Output script as that lists the element types used.

I tried with Sweep too. I know for Automatic and Manual Thin option. It doesn't work with different Src and Trg area.

Thank you anyway
