Flow over a cylinder with ANSYS Fluent

I am currently learning ANSYS Fluent for my research. There are also many great YouTube videos about this. To inspire myself to keep learning and also to record part of life, I want to summarize the analysis results of transient flow over a cylinder in this post. To capture the famous Von Karman Street, and also to understand why the flow at low Reynolds number could be considered as steady, the Reynolds number 10 and 100 are adopted in transient

Multi spring elements in local coordinate system in ANSYS

I am using different spring elements for different directions in local coordinate system in ANSYS. At first, I could only add spring elements in global system even though I defined and activated local system, it just didn’t work. I searched on Google without satisfying results. Fortunately, I got this problem successfully solved with the help of a friend.  Problem description In this testing example, I used a rotated cantilever beam with two spring elements at x and y directions in

Run ANSYS with MATLAB for parametric analysis

I switched from ABAQUS to ANSYS for my current research, though I am more familiar with ABAQUS.  I currently have all the APDL for my model and want to do  parametric analysis which requires about 7 to 8 hours for the calculation of one model with 2 cores. To improve the efficiency of running macro files in ANSYS, I decide to use MATLAB to run ANSYS. I never used this function before and I am also a beginner in ANSYS.
