Ask the Expert - Structural Multibody Analysis in ANSYS 12.0
The relative motion between multiple bodies can be easily defined in ANSYS Workbench Mechanical using joints, which are applicable to rigid and flexible bodies in static, modal, and transient structural analysis. ANSYS Workbench introduced joints along with automatic joint detection, the joint configure tool, and the rigid-body solver. ANSYS 12.0 added support for bushings, stops, locks, flexible-to-rigid contact, rigid shells, rigid multibody parts, and more. In this session, our panel of experts will be available online to answer your questions on how ANSYS users can take advantage of these features to efficiently setup your assembly for multibody analysis.
