Structural integrity is a complex multicomponent, Multiphysics challenge. With new materials empowering ever bolder designs, simulation is the only way to understand performance under normal and extreme loading conditions. A civil engineer has immense application ranging from beams to structures, static to dynamic, SSI, multi-material structure and so on.

Today’s businesses operate in a highly competitive environment where every company strives to innovate faster while reducing its product development and maintenance costs. Every function within an organization faces tremendous pressure to deliver more with less. Engineering operations are no exception. That’s why the world’s leading companies have adopted the ANSYS WORKBENCH platform — to transform the way they innovate and engineer their next-generation products and maintenance services.

The ANSYS Workbench platform is the backbone for delivering a comprehensive and integrated simulation system. Using Workbench for any development simulations will result in higher productivity from integrated applications and access to Multiphysics and systems-level capabilities. This is a software environment for performing any analysis starting from model creation to the results output which includes sketching, modeling, meshing, model set-up, analysis settings, results representation, report, and so on in different GUI forms to give a detailed study on the very project. By following our course, one should be able to perform the complete cycle of analysis along with the technicality of the component which in turn is related to the fundamentals learned in the classrooms.

ANSYS MAPDL (Classic) is the leading software solution that uses finite element analysis (FEA) for various analyses/simulations using the ANSYS Mechanical interface. It covers an enormous range of applications in the field of mechanical, aerospace, bio-medical, automotive, structural, and much more in 3 phases i.e., pre-processing, solution & post-processing. Ansys Mechanical APDL is also used to model advanced materials, complex environmental loadings, and industry-specific requirements in areas such as offshore hydrodynamics and layered composite materials as well.

This course is recommended for anyone who wishes to perform Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of mechanical parts and has little or no ANSYS Mechanical APDL (MAPDL) software experience. The ANSYS Mechanical APDL workflow, graphical user interface, along with the APDL command syntax, will be introduced to users. The focus will be on linear static structural analyses, although the concepts presented will provide a strong foundation to allow the user to solve other physics, such as thermal analyses, or more complicated analysis procedures with ANSYS MAPDL. After completing the course, attendees shall be able to use the ANSYS Mechanical APDL software efficiently to set up, solve, and post-process linear static analyses.

Please note that for those wishing to learn the Workbench version of ANSYS Mechanical should attend the “Introduction to ANSYS Mechanical” training course instead.
