Multi-purpose ANSYS APDL script developed for analysis of matter-radiation interaction

Ability to predict thermal and mechanical behavior within specific physical parameters has multiple industrial applications

ABSTRACT

The interaction of matter and radiation is relevant for several industrial applications, with new application areas growing daily.
The electron beam is the most diffuse particle beam in modern industry, being implemented widely in fields from welding to microscopy, machining, additive manufacturing and nuclear physics research. Furthermore, it forms the basis of new processes to produce “greener” parts, cheaper and faster, such as in the deposition of chemicals, and the irradiation of materials, such as food and medicines, while also being used for curing metals for aircraft, automobiles and recreational equipment.

The accurate modelling of the matter-radiation interaction is essential to predict the physical behavior of the materials used, such as their fatigue lifetime.
This technical article describes the development and application of this tool, using the ANSYS APDL script.
