Numerical Solution — Lesson 6

Created by Sebastien Lachance-Barrett

To obtain the numerical solution, click Solve. Ansys software formed the stiffness matrix for each element, assembled the global stiffness matrix and inverted it to get the nodal displacements. This is the bulk of the computation that the Ansys solver performs. All the results that we will look at next, such as the deformed shape and the stresses, are derived from these nodal displacements.
