Who is the course for
IDAC has created this course for engineers who wish to learn how to use ANSYS Workbench Mechanical effectively and efficiently to perform linear and nonlinear static structural analyses. No prior knowledge is required.
The course effectively consists of a 2-day workshop, during which all of the subject matter is applied interactively to an ongoing pipe assembly geometry problem, specially created to demonstrate the functionality of the ANSYS program.
Each course topic is followed by hands on workshops and exercises.
- To become familiar with the ANSYS Workbench interface.
- To solve linear and nonlinear structural problems.
- To assess the accuracy of the solution.
- To report the results concisely and effectively.
- The ANSYS Workbench interface.
- What and how much to model (Defeaturing).
- Importing assemblies.
- Defining material properties.
- Defining contact surfaces and their settings.
- Meshing controls (Refining meshes).
- Analysis settings for linear and nonlinear problems (using the Newton-Raphson technique).
- Definition of boundary conditions and loads.
- Multiple load step analyses (Sequential loading).
- Monitoring the solution.
- Results postprocessing and checking.
- Addressing non-convergence problems in nonlinear solutions.
- Restarting a solution.
- Producing results for reports.
