Advanced Structural Analysis using ANSYS Workbench

0% EMI Option Available

Domain : Finite Element Analysis, Structural Analysis

Pre-requisites : Mechanical, Material, Automotive & Aerospace Engineers

Introduction

A Quick Overview

Everything around us is a structure - be it a fan blade, a mobile phone, a chair or even a bridge. But the structural integrity of these, such that they do not harm the user is paramount. Our Advanced Structural Analysis course delves deep into Finite Element Analysis (FEA), how to perform simulations and read the results. You will gain powerful tool skills on ANSYS Workbench - industry-leading software for performing structural, thermal and vibrational analysis. You will get step-by-step knowledge on how to perform simulations using ANSYS’ Mechanical APDL solver.

At the end of this course, you will be able to set up a load case for any component/model, simulate them and obtain its deformation, fatigue life, the factor of safety and places of stress intensity. This course opens the gate to the world of FEA simulations and introduction to solving, time step for analysis.

COURSE SYLLABUS

This section gives an overview of FEA, 

  • The different solving techniques available
  • Meaning of Finite Element Analysis
  • Introduction to nodes and elements
  • Need for meshing and different types of meshing

Workbench is one of the industry-leading software from ANSYS that houses multiple analyses under one roof. 

  • Getting to know the basic GUI of ANSYS
  • Overview of different analysis systems available in ANSYS Workbench
  • Overview of different component systems in ANSYS
  • Creating and saving your first project

ANSYS Workbench has its own library of engineering materials with its corresponding material properties built-in. Therefore, we will work to look into various options available under engineering data. These include:

  • Going through various material libraries provided by ANSYS
  • Understanding where and when to use particular materials
  • Creation of new material
  • Adding a material for analysis



ANSYS SpaceClaim is an inbuilt design tool with enhanced GUI and accessibilities. Provides varying options to the user for creating simple extrude, sweep and extrude cut.

You will learn:

    • Creation of simple geometry in SpaceClaim
    • Adding and removing material using SpaceClaim
    • Merging component faces using SpaceClaim
    ANSYS mechanical modeller is where we are going to set up the model for the problem we are going to solve. This modeller is common in all of the analysis systems provided by ANSYS. A point to note: The option inside this mechanical modeller varies between the analysis systems.
    We will look into:
    • Importing and assigning material to the geometry
    • The meshing of the components
    • Creating local coordinate systems for the model
    • Defining contacts and joints if there are any to the model

    Static structural analysis is the first analysis system we will be studying in-depth. Static structural analysis is used in cases where the load acting on the body is very slow, not varying with time and not considering the inertia effects. So we will look into

    • Setting up and running a simple spur gear model
    • Performing mesh convergence for a bevel gear model
    • Determining the effect of a sheet on a die and punch system
    • Performing a bending of wires
    • Simulating a three-point bending for an iPhone and determining its life and factor of safety for various components involved

    Transient structural analysis is the next step in structural analysis. Transient analysis is indeed used in cases where the input conditions vary with time. Here the inertial effects are also considered. So we will be looking into,
    • Determining the frictional effects in a slider-crank mechanism
    • Effects of friction in a piston cam setup
    • Moving of worm gear over a large gear from one end to the other
    • Material suitability for a universal joint model

    Explicit dynamics is the third part of the study in this course. Explicit dynamics is applied in the cases where high energy generation, acceleration is involved i.e high energy generated at a very small instant of time. ANSYS uses Autodyn software to solve explicit analysis. Here we will be looking at,

    • Performing tension and torsion test for a given specimen
    • Determining the effect of thickness for a car body
    • Capturing the effect of a bullet striking on a bucket
    • Effect of velocity on a workpiece in a planar machine

    Projects Overview

    You will work on an independent project. 

    How does this work?

    • You will come up with a problem statement
    • Create geometry and perform the simulation for the given problem statement
    • The results from the simulation must be justified with analytical results or results from any journal papers
    • You should present the project and provide a proper conclusion by explaining the simulation results.

    WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR ?

    • This course can be opted by all the students who are pursuing B.E. or B Tech. in Mechanical Engineering
    • Professionals working in quality, production and manufacturing domain and looking to move up the ladder in their career
    • This course will provide a deep understanding of the solving process of the implicit and explicit solver. Also, you will gain expertise in settting up any model for performing basic structural simulation and post-processing the results.
    • Freshers looking for opportunities as Mechanical Simulation Engineer, CAE Modeller, CAE Analyst ( With Modelling experience ), Static Equipment Engineer in static structural and R & D domains

    Both ANSYS Workbench and HyperMesh have pre-processing, solution and post-processing capabilities. The difference is that HyperMesh is a tad more advanced than Workbench from a tool perspective. You will need a rudimentary understanding of what are meshing, load conditions before venturing into HyperMesh. Workbench, on the other hand, will help in easy understanding of these concepts and setting up load cases.

    A dedicated 1 hour of time is more than enough to understand the concepts, noting the concepts down and performing the challenges.

    No, not at all required. If you know the basic theoretical solving of FEA problems then it is more than enough to get started on this course.


    Yes, all our simulations will be under the nodes/elements limit only. Hence, the student version is more than enough for completing this course.

    A user cannot have more than 35000 nodes or elements or any one of them. Also, only 50 bodies or 300 faces are allowed.
