This webinar will discuss the use and background theory of the inertia relief options available with ANSYS Mechanical, and will show the use with numerical examples.

Inertia Relief is typically used to solve models where there are no fixed constraints. This is a technique in which the applied forces and torques are balanced by inertial forces induced by an acceleration field.
