ANSYS TRAINING



ANSYS software is simulated computer software which is engineered to analyse the design and to find out the stress and strain on the desired objects. It is developed by ANSYS Inc. and headquartered in USA. It is general purpose software which can be used for simulation of diverse disciplines of electro mechanical, heat and mass transfer, structural vibration, fluid mechanics.


ANSYS Training deals FEA (Finite Element Analysis) which covers structural analysis (linear and nonlinear) and dynamic studies as well. FEA is used as a tool which provides a complete set of elements behaviour, material behaviour and equation solvers for diverse mechanical problems.


It has certain features worth mentioning:
