# Welcome to the Ansys Tutorial

Dept of Mechanical Engg, IITG, Assam

.A Presentation on Static Analysis Using Ansys Types of analysis … • Static • Dynamic • Harmonic • Fatigue • Electromagnetic • Seismic Static analysis can be done in two methods like  (i) GUI (Graphic User Interface) method and  (ii) APDL (Ansys parametric design language) method.

By clicking the icons in the screen using the input devices .the model is generated. Different materials are in the material library . the icons are used to create and analyse the model in ANSYS.     In GUI. In APDL.Continued…. the code is generated to create and analyse the model.

The material properties also can be assigned to the materials manually.Finite Elements in Ansys     Ansys is a tool which can also be used for Finite element analysis. The model or domain can be discretised using known elements. . The elements are made up of nodes.

The density of the mesh also can be defined.Continued…         The volume or area is meshed then. (i) Force load (ii) Pressure load (iii) Temperature and (iv) inertia . Structural Loads are of different types. The boundary conditions are fixed and the loads are also applied.

Post processing The nodal solutions and element solutions in terms of stress. . strain and displacements can be seen in pictorial view as well as numbers. Using Pr and Pl commands the outputs can be seen.Continued…     Finishing the solution task and solve the problem.

From this stress values and strain values . Optimization also can be done over the model using optimization task. the fatigue value also can be calculated in the next steps. .Continued…    Completing the analysis and quit the Ansys with or without saving your database file using quit command.
