Overview

ANSYS is an engineering software, that provides a platform to predict real world problems and situations in virtual environments that may either be difficult to illustrate experimentally or are very costly to set-up physically. In ANSYS, one may create virtual engineering models and set them up into their real world physical environments. ANSYS utilizes numerical technique towards problem solving and can help in creating new designs, improving existing ones, reducing cost pertaining to huge experimentation and time associated with complex set-ups, optimizing engineering models, etc.

Nowadays, companies across the globe are investing in creating virtual environments to simulate engineering phenomenon, in return saving time and energy and reducing cost by fairly reducing the need of experimentation. Another benefit is that virtual engineering simulation tools such as ANSYS offer enough data to produce smart products like cars, cranes, bridges, building, wind turbines etc. that may contain thousands of components.

This short course provides hand-on experience of using ANSYS for structural, thermal and fluid problems, using both the ANSYS Graphical User Interface (GUI) as well as parametrically using ANSYS Parametric Design Language (APDL) programming. APDL is a powerful scripting language that allows you to parameterize your model and automate the common tasks and help you run your program as a background process (immensely useful in research students and engineering design optimization).
