Course: Performing Structural and Thermal Analysis using ANSYS Workbench


Course Description:

This training course will teach users how to effectively use ANSYS Workbench to build a FEA simulation model, analyze it, and then interpret the results. ANSYS is a CAE software. This software accelerates product development by providing rapid feedback on multiple design scenarios, which reduces the need for multiple prototypes and product testing iterations. After completing this course, the trainees/students will be able to perform FEA simulations, including linear static, modal, and harmonic structural analysis and nonlinear steady-state thermal analysis.

Class and Lab Hours: 80 (40 Theory, 40 Lab).

Prerequisites:The trainee/student needs to be an Engineer/Technologist with knowledge of design concepts.

Textbook: ANSYS Workbench 14.0: A Tutorial Approach by Prof. Sham Tickoo and CADCIM Technologies, USA

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of the course, trainees/students will be able to:
  1. Edit Surfaces
  2. Understand the FEA Concepts
  3. Create FEA Models
Major Instructional Areas:
  1. Understanding the basics of FEA and its functions
  2. Defining Material Properties
  3. Generating Mesh
  4. Refining Generated Mesh
  5. Specifying Boundary and Loading Conditions
  6. Analyzing the Result Properly
Evaluation:There will be one exam that every trainee/student must pass with 75% or more to get a certificate of completion from TIET.

Suggested Learning Approach

In this course, you will study individually or within a group of peers. As you work on the course deliverables, you are encouraged to share ideas with your peers and instructor, work collaboratively on projects and team assignments, raise critical questions, and provide constructive feedback.
