Assembly Modeling e-Learning Presentation
This presentation accompanied the Assembly Modeling ANSYS e-Learning session, originally given in November 2012 by CAE Associates. To view a recording of the session, click here.
Most finite element analyses performed today include multiple parts that require connections. Selecting the appropriate type of connection and achieving a converged robust solution are challenges for even the most experienced analysts. Analyses often require a combination of bonded, no separation and standard contact solutions. Each technique requires an understanding of the analysis tool and how it provides the engineer a valuable understanding of the modeled mechanism response.
CAE Associates’ Vice President Peter Barrett guides you through the process of structural analysis assembly modeling. You will learn how to:
- Effectively create and manage your contact groups
- Understand your unconverged solution
- Prevent rigid body motion
- Quantify and/or Increase the accuracy of analyses
- Interpert results with contact elements
If you are just using the default contact settings in ANSYS Workbench Mechanical or just need a refresher on the different contact elements and convergence tools available in ANSYS, you should view this e-Learning session to expand your analysis expertise.
