Foundations in Stress Analysis of Structures

Stress analysis is one of the most important and popular types of analysis performed by engineers to study the structural fidelity of engineering systems. It provides information that can be used to predict structural failures and improve designs. Knowledge of underlying concepts in structural mechanics and wisdom to apply these in practical applications is an essential first step. This learning path on “Foundations in Stress Analysis in Structures: A primer to stress analysis using Ansys Mechanical” is a collection of courses curated by simulation experts at Ansys that equips learners with the right skills to begin their path as a stress analyst. In addition to theoretical knowledge, the learners are also introduced to using Ansys Mechanical to perform stress analysis via various practical simulation examples and homework.
