Description

Finite element analysis means simulating nature, therefore giving you insight into the world you live in and enriching your life. This course, Introduction to ANSYS, is an introduction to using ANSYS finite element software. First, you will start by modeling a lifting lug component and solve your first 3D finite element model. Then, you will explore the user interface, creating your first 3D model, and setting up the loads and boundary conditions. Finally, you'll view the results and ensure the safety of the component under the given loads. After watching this course, you'll know the basics of how to navigate through the ANSYS interface and be equipped with the tools to develop and analyze your own models. Software required: ANSYS v17.0.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Joseph Daly, and welcome to my course: Introduction to ANSYS. I am an engineer at Akon. Finite Element Analysis means simulating nature, therefore, giving us insight into the world we live in, and enriches our lives. This course is an introduction to the Finite Element software called ANSYS, and having a solid engineering background is required. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include introducing the ANSYS Workbench Interface, creating and setting up a 3D model, viewing and discussing the analysis results, and finally, optimizing the model. By the end of the course, you'll know the basics of how to navigate through the ANSYS interface, and be equipped with the tools to develop and analyze your own models. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the Finite Element Method. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn ANSYS, with the Introduction to ANSYS course, at Pluralsight.
