Study on Parametric Modeling Method for FEA Model of Periodic Symmetric Struts Support
In this paper, the APDL programming language provided by ANSYS software is used to build the parametric modeling of Periodic Symmetric Struts Support (PSSS), which is provide convenience and necessary preparations for the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and save much time and effort during the preprocess analysis. At first, the positional parameters and size parameters of PSSS are analyzed, and find out the relationship between main parameters, and identify the parameter equations. Then, build the struts support model and edit the parameter equations by APDL language. Finally, the producing process of different kind of struts support models are implemented by changing main parameters and provide the necessary conditions for preprocess of FEA.
