You can define your boundary wall mesh structure in ANSYS Meshing with various inflation options. Also, you can define the layered mesh structure with the First Layer Thickness inflation option in ANSYS Meshing. In this article we will explain;
- What is the First Layer Thickness inflation option in ANSYS Meshing?
- How to adjust the First Layer Thickness inflation option in ANSYS Meshing?
What Is First Layer Thickness Inflation Option In ANSYS Meshing?
To select the First Layer Thickness for the inflation option, click on the Mesh tab as shown by the red arrow above then click on the Inflation section as shown by the green arrow, then select the Inflation Option as First Layer Thickness as shown in the green box above.
The First Layer Thickness option creates inflation mesh structure by using first layer height, maximum layers, and growth rate values entered by the user in ANSYS Meshing.
First Layer Height: Enter a height value of the first face layer inflation mesh structure.
Maximum Layers: Enter the number of layers that you want to create in inflation mesh.
Growth Rate: Rate of increment in each adjacent layer in inflation meshing.
The inflation mesh will be created according to these values that you entered in the First Layer Thickness inflation option in ANSYS Meshing.
