Preprocessor for Structural Analysis using ANSA

0% EMI Option Available

Domain : FEA, Structural Meshing, CAE

Pre-requisites : For Mechanical and Automotive Engineers

Introduction

A Quick Overview

ANSA is an advanced multidisciplinary CAE pre-processing tool that provides all the necessary functionality for full-model build-up, from CAD data to ready-to-run solver input file, in a single integrated environment. In FEA analysis the workflow can be categorized into 3 phases such as pre-processing, solving, and post-processing. This course purely focuses on pre-processing/modeling a component for FEA analysis. If you are someone who is interested in the CAE domain this course will help you to get into the industry as a CAE modeler/mesher.


Anyone who enrolls in this course will be able to learn a CAE Preprocessing Tool which includes tasks such as geometry clean up, midsurfacing, 1D, 2D and 3D meshing operations, connections establishments, morphing, etc. By learning how to use this tool you will be able to model/mesh any components that are required in the FEA Domain.

           

At the end of this course, you will be skilled in 1D, 2D ( shell meshing ), 3D ( solid meshing ), and also in connectors. There are several complex models in the course work that will help you in practicing the techniques taught in this course.


After completing this course you will be able to apply for various CAE roles within the automotive sector and other industries.

COURSE SYLLABUS

WEEK 1 & 2

In this module you will be introduced to the CAE domain along with introduction to FEA basics. You will learn the Graphical User Interface(GUI) of the ANSA tool. You will get to know about different solvers and types of analysis carried out using them You will be introduced to basic tools that will help you with geometric cleanups and other deck setups in ANSA.

The topics covered in this module are, 

  • Introduction to FEA,

  • ANSA GUI,

  • Geometric Tools and Topology cleanup

  • Types of CAE process Tools for structural CAE, 

  • Types of elements, 

  • Different Tools used in TOPO deck

WEEK 3


In this module, you will study the basics of 2D meshing. You will also learn how to extract mid surface, deploy 2D mesh on the mid surface, reconstruct already meshed areas, along with various techniques for achieving the mesh flow. You will also learn how to eliminate the tria concentration present in the geometry, capture the important features in the geometry.


You will be working on a sheet metal component in this module. You will also be taught how to achieve mesh quality for the component by assigning the quality criteria parameters.

You will study the following topics in this module,

  • Direct morphing

  • Box morphing 

  • Hatches

  • Morphing was done in FE model

  • Morphing done in CAD geometry
