Pro/MESH update

It is currently possible to write out ANSYS output files (*.ans) files with PRO/Mesh license. This creates FEM mesh which is readable with ANSYS APDL enviroment.

 

The beam and truss elements which are written out are BEAM44 and LINK8. These however are bit obsolete/outdated/retired element types requiring additional ANSYS licensing to run. Therefore one would benefit if elements written could be customized.

 

Link8 -> Link180 or Link181

Beam44 -> Beam 188

 

The workaround for this is currently manual/script based modification of *.ans files.

 

Backround: Current elements supported.
