The contents of this tutorial are intended to provide both an overview of the ANSYS simulation capabilities. Using theANSYS Workbench environment you will visit a series of technical exercises to teach you how to perform some basictypes of simulation. It is not the intent of the exercises to teach you more advanced types of linear and non-linearengineering simulation.
Introduction and Overview
This section is intended to introduce you to the basic content and useof the ANSYSWorkbench environment. It includes
descriptions of the basic application tools and screen contents that you will encounterwhen taking the tutorial. The
objective is to introduce general terminology and the methods of interacting with theANSYS products through the
Workbench graphical user interface.
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.
