I am working in Explicit Dynamics module in Ansys Workbench for modelling of a Truss bridge under blast loading. I couldn't find the way to know which type of elements Ansys is taking in model. In element type result it is only showing some number of solid and beam elements. How to get the discription of these element types? Can we generate the element in our model by ourselves?

Arun,

 Explicit Dynamics supports the following element formulations:

You can read about these in the manual here. Here is also a good blog post.

Thanks Sir,

I have one more problem. I have to apply pressure on truss line body members. Pressure is time varying blast triangular load. When i am applying line pressure through tabular instead of magnitude there is some error. But when using line pressure using magnitude then there is no error. So how can i apply a time varying pressure on line body?
