Course Overview

  • This course will provide knowledge about the strength of the material and the finite element method with its application in Industries using CAE-FEA tool Ansys Workbench. 
  • This program is based on the theme of practical implementation of theoretical knowledge on the CAE-FEA tool using industrial application problems as examples. 
  • In this course you will learn about the basics of FEA, Ansys workbench, setting up the simulation for static structural, transient structural, and explicit dynamics analysis systems.
  • In-depth information on Ansys analysis systems, mesh settings, and contact settings will also be covered in this course.

Course Syllabus

On a daily basis we talk to companies in the likes of Tata Elxsi and Mahindra to fine tune our curriculum.

Week 1 - Understanding the Basics of FEA

  • This section gives an overview of FEA, 
    • The different solving techniques available
    • The Meaning of Finite Element Analysis
    • An Introduction to Nodes and Elements
    • The need for meshing and different types of meshing

Week 2 - Introduction to ANSYS Workbench

  • Workbench is an industry-leading software from ANSYS that houses multiple analyses under one roof. 
    • Getting to know the basic GUI of ANSYS
    • An Overview of the different analysis systems available in ANSYS Workbench
    • An Overview of the different component systems in ANSYS
    • Creating and saving your first project

Week 3 - Introduction to Engineering Data

  • ANSYS Workbench has its own library of engineering materials with their 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
    • Including a material for examination

Week 4 - Introduction to ANSYS SpaceClaim

  • ANSYS SpaceClaim is an inbuilt design tool with an enhanced GUI and accessibility. It provides varying options to the user for creating simple extrusion, sweep, and extrude cuts. 
  • You will learn:
    • Creation of simple geometry in SpaceClaim
    • Adding and removing material using SpaceClaim
    • Merging component faces using SpaceClaim

Week 5 - Introduction to ANSYS Mechanical Modeller

  • 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 is that the options inside this mechanical modeller vary between the analysis systems. 
  • We will look into it.
    • Importing and assigning material to the geometry
    • The meshing of the components
    • Creating local coordinate systems for the model
    • Defining contacts and joints in the model, if any exist.

Week 6 - Introduction to Static Structural Analysis

  • 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 inertia effects. So we will look into it.
    • 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 the bending of wires
    • Simulating a three-point bending for an iPhone and determining its life and factor of safety for various components involved

Week 7 - Introduction to Transient Structural Analysis

  • 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
    • The movement of a worm gear from one end to the other of a large gear.
    • Material suitability for a universal joint model.

Week 8 - Introduction to Explicit Dynamics Analysis

  • Explicit dynamics is the third part of the study in this course. Explicit dynamics is applied in cases where high energy generation and acceleration are 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 tests on a given specimen
    • Determining the effect of thickness on a car's body
    • Capturing the effect of a bullet striking a bucket
    • Effect of velocity on a workpiece in a planar machine
