Named selections are a very useful tool in ANSYS® Mechanical to define boundary conditions upon them, at further processes. You can create named selections, by selecting the mesh elements and mesh nodes. So, it is also possible to define your boundary conditions and other things upon them. Here, we explain how to create named selections in ANSYS® Mechanical via nodes and mesh elements.

How To Create Node And Mesh Element Named Selections In ANSYS®?
As you see above, there are two options to select mesh elements or mesh nodes in ANSYS® Mechanical, as shown by the red arrow. For example, we selected mesh elements by selecting the second selection method as above.
After selecting nodes and elements, right-click on the graphics window in ANSYS® Mechanical, then click on ‘Create Named Selection’ as shown by the red arrow above.
In this window, just enter the name of the created named selection as shown by the red box upon selected mesh elements in ANSYS® Mechanical. Then click on ‘OK’ to complete mesh elements named selections.
From the outline tree in ANSYS® Mechanical, if you expand the ‘Named Selections’ section, then click on created named selection upon mesh elements as shown by the red arrow above, you can see the selected mesh elements as shown in the red box above.
Creating named selections upon mesh elements and nodes can be a very useful trick in such situations in ANSYS® Mechanical.
