The nine lessons in this book introduce the reader to effective finite element problem solving by demonstrating the use of the comprehensive ANSYS FEM software in a series of step-by-step tutorials.
Topics covered include problems involving trusses, plane stress, plane strain, axisymmetric and three-dimensional geometries, beams, plates, conduction and convection heat transfer, thermal stress, and more. The tutorials are suitable for either professional or student use.
