This course is for users of ANSYS Parametric Design Language (APDL) tools in ANSYS Mechanical APDL, previously available in the traditional ANSYS format. The ANSYS Workbench environment will not be discussed or covered in this course.

Course Description

Designed for intermediate ANSYS Mechanical APDL users who perform FEA on mechanical parts or fluids, Introduction to ANSYS, Part II is a two-day course that teaches advanced modeling and analysis techniques - using array parameters, coupling and constraint equations, element coordinate systems and surface effect elements. In addition, beam modeling, submodeling, modal and bonded contact analyses are covered along with creating macro files. Upon completion, attendees should be able to apply the advanced modeling and analysis techniques supported by ANSYS Mechanical APDL.

This training course will cover the following topics:

  • Array Parameters
  • Coupling & Constraint Equations
  • Working with Elements
  • Beam Modeling
  • Coupled Field Analysis
  • Submodeling
  • Modal Analysis
  • Introduction to Nonlinear Analysis
  • Bonded Contact
  • Macro Basics

Each course chapter is followed by "hands-on" workshops and exercises.
