The structural integrity and stability of any building are only as good as its parts. The way those parts fit together, along with the choice of materials and the building site, all contribute to how the building will perform under normal or extreme conditions. Civil engineers integrate this knowledge into their building designs and comply with increasingly demanding safety and government regulations. Civil engineers use Ansys MAPDL for projects as diverse as high-rise buildings, bridges, dams, stadiums, culverts, transmission towers, cell towers, etc. By experimenting with innovative design in a virtual environment, engineers and designers can analyze safety, strength, comfort, and environmental considerations by various types of analyses & simulation models as per the model requirement with different types of analysis such as linear, static, dynamics, response spectrum, time history, thermal and so on both for concrete & steel structures or specific components.
The objective of this course is to introduce attendees to the use of Finite Element Analysis software, allowing them to acquire the basic skills to enable them to work with this type of analysis in their professional practice and transfer the gained knowledge to the students which helps them to contact academics to the industry to align their career path. This faculty development program (FDP) was conducted for 5 days on Civil Engineer applications by using ANSYS APDL, in which hands-on sessions were also included along with the assignments to get complete knowledge on the applications & usage in Vardhaman College of Engineering, Hyderabad.
