ANSYS is an elegant and broad finite element program. It has capabilities in many different fields of physics such as nonlinear, thermal, static structural, implicit and explicit dynamics, fluid flow, electromagnetics, and electric field analysis.
ANSYS is an integrated program with all operations performed under one Graphic User Interface (GUI).
Creating the model, running it, and post-processing the results are all done without leaving the ANSYS environment.
There are many different ways of working within ANSYS.
Like every software, ANSYS is commands driven. It gives easy access to these commands.
These commands are simple to use; just a keyword followed by several arguments.
New ANSYS users generally don’t use scripting to start with and want to find out how to do what they want to do within the GUI environment.
FINITE ELEMENT METHOD
The FEM was developed more by engineers during the 1950s and 1960s using physical insight than by mathematicians using abstract methods.
It is helpful to an engineer using ANSYS to have at least some idea of how the finite element method (FEM) works.
Engineers can perform the following tasks using finite element analysis software ANSYS:
• Transferring CAD models of structures, products, components, or systems or building computer models
• Applying design performance conditions or working loads
• Studying responses, such as stress levels or temperature distributions • Optimizing a design
• Do prototype testing in situations where it otherwise would be impossible.
The ANSYS offers a Graphic User Interface (GUI) that permits easy, interactive access to functions, commands and documentation.
An intuitive menu system helps the analyst steer through the ANSYS program.
One can input data using a mouse, a keyboard, or both.
Ansys course at CADD Centre Nagpur provides basic guidelines for using the ANSYS program: starting and stopping the analysis, using and customizing the GUI, etc.
