How to convert Angular Velocity units from Degrees to Radians in ANSYS software?

If you want to analyze a model under the mode of a rotation and by the application of external forces then the first thing you need to focus is the conversion of Angular velocity units.Therefore,in this article I will be explaining about the conversion of Angular velocity units from degrees to radians in ANSYS software in a detailed manner.

Conversion of Angular Velocity Units:

A step by step procedure is to be adopted to understand the conversion of Angular Velocity units from Radians to Degrees and is as follows.

Steps for the conversion of Angular Velocity Units:

1.The conversion for the units of angular velocity is done first before the analysis else we can get errors in the results of analysis part.

2.For that,the model is to be imported into ANSYS software by the following sequence which is shown below.

3.Open the ANSYS Interface and click on File-Import-Parasolid-Select the required model-OK.

4.Then the wireframe of that particular model is appeared on the screen.Convert that wireframe model into solid model with the following sequence.

                               * Plotctrls-Style-Solid model facets-Normal faceting-ok.

                                *Right click and say Replot.

5.By this,the wireframe model is converted into solid model for further analysis.

6.The structure in the below video consists of a blade flange assembly which can rotates around its own axis with the rated power of motor and for that assembly,we should has to provide the angular velocity.

7.The angular velocity is represented by the formula as 

                                                w=(2*3.14*N)/60

                                                 =rad/sec.

8.Here,in the above formula we are getting the angular velocity units as “rad/sec” in a theoretical manner.But,as the software is concerned,we should has to provide the units manually.

9.The sequence for providing the units in ANSYS software was as follows.

          Parameters-Angular Velocity-Pick the desired Unit for angular velocity-OK.

10.Select the “Radians” from the drop down for further analysis because of the theoretical representation.

This is the step by step procedure for converting of Angular velocity units in ANSYS software in a detailed manner.
