In ANSYS analyses, the user could prefer different unit systems. Some users could select US Customary standards, some users select British units and some of them could select International Units for their analyses in ANSYS. In this text, we will show you how to select unit types in ANSYS Workbench and how to select units in ANSYS® Mechanical. You will see that editing units in ANSYS Mechanical is very simple.
Therefore, the proper unit selection must be important in either ANSYS Workbench and ANSYS® Mechanical. This is how to select the proper unit in ANSYS Workbench and Mechanical as shown by illustrations.
How to Select Units in ANSYS® Workbench and ANSYS® Mechanical?
In ANSYS Workbench, you could select your unit system basically from the Units tab as shown in the red box above. These units will affect your material properties units in Engineering Data, because of that it is very important to select proper units for it in ANSYS Workbench.
Also, you can select your units in ANSYS Mechanical in the same manner in ANSYS® Workbench. And, These units affect the solution of your analyses in ANSYS Mechanical that it is very important to choose proper units in Mechanical.
Furthermore, your selected unit types in ANSYS Workbench and ANSYS Mechanical must be the same. Because the calculations inside ANSYS Mechanical is done according to ANSYS® Workbench Engineering Data material properties. Because of that, the selection of units in both Workbench and Mechanical as the same is vital.
Finally, ANSYS has very useful tools to create very good simulation models of physical things. Check the articles about ANSYS’s abilities.
