Ansys Workbench Axis Symmetric 2D elements with Asymmetric Loading

(OP)
I am I want to know the procedure to give Non Axis Symmetric Loads to Axis Symmetric 2 Elements in Workbench.

RE: Ansys Workbench Axis Symmetric 2D elements with Asymmetric Loading

ANSYS offers special axisymmetric elements that can be used with non-axisymmetric loads. Harmonic PLANE25 and PLANE83 elements belong to this group but they are legacy elements and ANSYS recommends the use of general axisymmetric solid elements SOLID272 and SOLID273 respectively instead. However to utilize them you will have to make use of scripting.

If you are using Ansys MAPDL, then just issue this command to define the elements and then model as usual: ET,1,PLANE25.
See VM43 for a MAPDL example (verification manual)

In WB you could probably enter a command snippet, but I have never used these elements there.

Thanks a lot Erik and FEA Way.

Ebook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
