SXYZ
  John Crawford (Honeywell)
  It is often times nice to be able to get the stress at a specific location in space,whether a node is there or not. By some strange quirk of fate, I just happen to have a macro that does this. Here it is.

Effects of Nonlinear Geometric and Material Properties on the Seismic Response of Fluid/Tank Systems
  He Liu, Daniel H. Schubert
  "To explore the effects large deformation and nonlinear material properties have on the seismic response of fluid/tank systems, the computer program ANSYS was selected to develop a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) model of a ground level, cylindrical steel shell and roof tank structure with contained fluid under seismic load. The ANSYS program was selected for its ability to include shell and structural steel elements, contained fluid elements, fluid-structure interactions, material and geometric nonlinearities, and contact type elements. For purposes of this study, analysis results from a linear elastic, small deformation fixed base model are compared with an elasto-plastic material property model with large deformation assumptions. Results show the significant difference in results based on the assumptions used and indicate that current design code based values may not be conservative in resultant loading calculations."

THERM_CONT
  Sheldon Imaoka (CSI)
  Simple input file demonstrating thermal contact conductance with surf-to-surf contact elements (not all thermal features of contact elements shown). Note: Thermal contact for 169-174 elements are BETA at 5.6.

ANSYS and Tcl/Tk customization
  John Swanson
  Information on using Tcl/Tk with ANSYS to create customized GUI. Tcl/Tk is used in ANSYS, such as the Contact Wizard, Solution Control Wizard, or Materials GUI at 5.7/6.0.

MAPME
  Sheldon Imaoka (ANSYS, Inc.)
  General macro used to map one set of values & (x,y,z) coordinates to another. Uses *MOPER,,,MAP.

Example input file can be found here which uses this macro. In this input example, *VPUT is used to compare mapping UX, UY, and UZ from one mesh to another. This can be used to map pressures, heat flux, convection, etc. from CFD codes to ANSYS, for example.

Alternate macro also available here.

APDL Coding Standards [PDF]
  Sheldon Imaoka (ANSYS, Inc.)
  "Because of the flexibility and automation APDL (ANSYS Parametric Design Language) provides, many users tend to write input files and macros in addition to using the GUI.
There are currently no recognized ‘standards’ of writing APDL macros or input files, although there may exist standards within companies on APDL coding. The lack of APDL coding standards may make inheriting someone else’s input files or macros more difficult. Also, parameter or component conflicts may also arise when using multiple macros.
This memo hopes to provide some ideas for groups or individuals wishing to develop APDL standards in writing macros or input files."

/DEBUG
  The /DEBUG command generates debugging at various points in the output. You can specify one of three formats for /DEBUG: solution debug format, element debug format, and general debug format.
[STI: Please see this link for more details on /DEBUG]

ICPKG
  Steve Groothuis (Micron Technology, Inc.)
  "An example of IC package assembly using element birth and death - a simple 5-step die attach, injection molding, and cool-down processes during IC packaging. (compliments to Bill Bulat on concept)"
Unzip the file and read in "icpkg.inp".

HFTH
  Mark Troscinski (ANSYS, Inc.)
  "Please take a look at this input file. It's a sample problem I've run for someone who was using microwave radiation to heat paper-type products. The model is pretty simple, but it should illustrate the basic steps in running the coupled HF-electromagnetics/thermal problem."
