Structural Boundary Conditions for Stress Analysis using Ansys Mechanical

For any finite element analysis, boundary conditions are a critical piece to set up simulations properly. This is because boundary conditions represent the effect of other parts or structures not directly modeled in our analysis. If inappropriate boundary conditions are used, the simulation results may be far from correct.  We can consider two types of boundary conditions: supports and loads. Supports are used to constrain the structure while loads are used to excite the structure.
Learn practical simulation engineering techniques while following along with hands-on examples that can be completed either using your valid commercial/academic Ansys license or with Ansys Student.
