Finite Element Analysis with ANSYS Workbench is written for students who want to use ANSYS software while learning the finite element method.
The book is also suitable for designers and engineers before using the software to analyze realistic problems.
The books presents the finite element formulations for solving engineering problems in the fields of solid mechanics, heat transfer, thermal stress and fluid flows.
For solid mechanics problems, the truss, beam, plane stress, plate, 3D solid elements are employed for structural, vibration, eigenvalues, buckling and failure analyses.
For heat transfer problems, the steady-state and transient formulations for heat conduction, convection and radiation are presented and for fluid problems, both incompressible and compressible flows using fluent are analyzed. The book contains twelve chapters describing different analysis disciplines in engineering problems.
In each chapter, the governing differential equations and the finite element method are presented.
An academic examples used to demonstrate the ANSYS procedure for solving it in detail.
An application example is also included at the end of each chapter to highlight the software capability for analyzing practical problems.
