**Summary :** Written for students who want to use ANSYS software while learning the finite element method, this book is also suitable for designers and engineers before using the software to analyse realistic problems. The books presents the finite element formulations for solving engineering problems in the fields of solid mechanics, heat transfer, thermal stress and fluid flows. For solid mechanics problems, the truss, beam, plane stress, plate, 3D solid elements are employed for structural, vibration, eigenvalues, buckling and failure analyses. For heat transfer problems, the steady-state and transient formulations for heat conduction, convection and radiation are presented and for fluid problems, both incompressible and compressible flows using fluent are analyzed. The book contains twelve chapters describing different analysis disciplines in engineering problems. In each chapter, the governing differential equations and the finite element method are presented. An academic examples used to demonstrate the ANSYS procedure for solving it in detail. An application example is also included at the end of each chapter to highlight the software capability for analysing practical problems.

- Total pages :256
- ISBN : 9781585035816

**Summary :** ANSYS Workbench Release 12 Software Tutorial with MultiMedia CD is directed toward using finite element analysis to solve engineering problems. Unlike most textbooks which focus solely on teaching the theory of finite element analysis or tutorials that only illustrate the steps that must be followed to operate a finite element program, ANSYS Workbench Software Tutorial with MultiMedia CD integrates both. This textbook and CD are aimed at the student or practitioner who wishes to begin making use of this powerful software tool. The primary purpose of this tutorial is to introduce new users to the ANSYS Workbench software, by illustrating how it can be used to solve a variety of problems. To help new users begin to understand how good finite element models are built, this tutorial takes the approach that FEA results should always be compared with other data results. In several chapters, the finite element tutorial problem is compared with manual calculations so that the reader can compare and contrast the finite element results with the manual solution. Most of the examples and some of the exercises make reference to existing analytical solutions In addition to the step-by-step tutorials, introductory material is provided that covers the capabilities and limitations of the different element and solution types. The majority of topics and examples presented are oriented to stress analysis, with the exception of natural frequency analysis in chapter 11, and heat transfer in chapter 12.
