CADFEM Tutorial No.1 – Structural Analysis: Calculating Stress & Deformation using ANSYS® Workbench™

This CADFEM tutorial explains how to perform basic static calculation using ANSYS® Workbench™. This tutorial on how to calculate stress and deformation focuses on the general procedure – from importing geometry to defining the load and illustration of the results.

ANSYS and Cray Inc., have smashed the previous simulation world record by scaling ANSYS Fluent to 129,000 compute cores – enabling organisations to spur innovation by creating complete virtual prototypes of their products.

ANSYS and Cray Smash Supercomputing Records
Case Study: Escalator Step Analysis

IDAC were approached to carry out the finite element analysis work using ANSYS for three separate design projects of rotary railcar dumpers to evaluate the stress and displacement levels at different operational and extreme positions and conditions.

Manitowoc Cranes, one of the largest providers of lifting equipment for the global construction industry, is maximising safety and minimising design and production costs by using ANSYS engineering simulation solutions to validate complete virtual prototypes of its lattice-boom towers and mobile-telescopic cranes.

What people say...
         "Personally I would now be prepared to use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) at the outset of any future project, rather than go through endless cycles of prototyping and testing."
