The contents of this tutorial are intended to provide both an overview of the ANSYS Workbench itself and a suite ortechnical exercises to teach you how to perform some basic types of simulation. It is not the intent of the exercises toteach you more advanced types of linear and non-linear engineering simulation.
Introduction and Overview
This section is intended to introduce you to the basic content and use of the ANSYS Workbench. It includes descriptionsof the basic application tools and screen contents that you will encounter when taking the tutorial. The objective is tointroduce general terminology and the methods of interacting with the ANSYS Workbench through its graphical userinterface.
Exercise 1 – Workbench Basics
The first exercise introduces you to the basic workflow associated with performing engineering simulations. You will beguided through the creation of a simple model. You will then apply loads and supports to your model and solve a simpleproblem.Once you solved the problem presented you will learn how to review the results of your simulation including stresses anddeformations. You will also be introduced to methods provided to produce engineering reports using the patented ANSYSWorkbench Report Generator. The reporting tool simplifies your ability to produce web-enabled (HTML) reports fordistribution and review by others. These reports can be saved and viewed by others without access to or need for theANSYS Workbench application software.
