ANSYS Structural Tech Tips

Sucessful companies have made the use of simulation in their product development process a key inititive for improving product efficiency and robustness while reducing time to market. For many of those companies, ANSYS Structural tools play an important role in driving designs through simulation. This page shares a few technical tips that show how orginizations can effecitvely implement the tools to increase the return on their simulation investment.

ANSYS Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Solutions for Structural/Mechanical Product Development

The primary ANSYS solution products in the structural area are ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Structural. Using these solutions, you can import geometries, optimize meshing, and set boundary conditions. Following these preprocessing steps, you can perform analyses of strength, vibration, motion and thermal properties of the system, and obtain graphic representations showing how these properties vary across the geometry under the chosen conditions. Based on these results, you may want to modify your design to address any problem areas and run the simulation again. After a few iterations, your results will reveal an optimal design of the part or system under development. View the videos below for step-by-step guidelines demonstrating how to perform some typical mechanical/structural simulations.
