In this course we will learn how to perform numerical simulations on structural systems using Ansys Mechanical. First, we will get familiarized with the Ansys Mechanical interface and learn the general workflow. We will then learn how to perform a stress analysis and a modal analysis of a simple structure. Following that, we will get introduced to structural nonlinearities and how they can affect the results in certain cases. Finally, Ansys Mechanical also provides a conduction-based solver that can be used to perform heat transfer analysis in solids. We will perform a thermal analysis to obtain temperature distribution of a laptop.
