hi!! sorry for my english..
there isn't an ellipse function in ansys but you can draw ellipses like that.
first of all draw a circle and give radius value.. after that go to operate menu which is under create menu than select scale/areas . when you choose your circle, a window will be shown and input your RX scale factor and thats it..

salem alikoum,
you have to choise coordinate system to the cylindrical system and change the last term in this command , and don't forget to generate the nodes automaticly

first of all you need to read ansys help regarding applying loads in transient analysis using arrays. u can define load as function of time using table array,from utility menu>parameters>define >array parameters>table array. input ur transient load data prior to entering solution menu, in that table which u can call later on while applying loads in drop down menu.
