Exploring Truss Elements and Mesh Quality with Ansys Mechanical

Ansys Mechanical is a finite element analysis (FEA) software used to perform structural analysis using advanced solver options, including linear dynamics, nonlinearities, thermal analysis, materials, composites, hydrodynamic, explicit, and more. 

This tutorial will cover creating and analyzing truss structures using Ansys Mechanical, as well as reviewing the effects of mesh quality and sizing on the results of a simulation.

This resource is part of a set of tutorials, designed to introduce the basic functionalities of Ansys Mechanical via Ansys Workbench and was created in collaboration with the University of Newcastle as part of the Ansys Funded Curriculum Program.
