21.1. Autodyn Walkthrough Using Explicit Dynamics

  1. Start Workbench.

  2. Insert an Explicit Dynamics system from the Analysis Systems toolbox.

  3. Right-click the Geometry cell (A3), and select Import a Geometry.

  4. Double-click the Model cell (A4) to open up the Mechanical application editor.

    • Define the Body Interactions.

    • Define the Mesh.

    • Define Initial Conditions.

    • Define Boundary Conditions.

    • Define Analysis Settings.

  5. Go to the Project Schematic and drag an Autodyn Component System onto cell A5 to generate the link between the Setup cell (A5) of the Explicit Dynamics system and the Setup cell (B2) of the Autodyn Component System.

  6. Transfer the Explicit Dynamics Setup to Autodyn.

    • Right-click on Explicit Dynamics system Setup cell (A5), Select Update.

    • The model definition in the Explicit Dynamics system will be transferred into the Autodyn application.

      Double-click the Setup cell (B2) of the Autodyn system to open the Autodyn application.
