ANSYS Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Solutions for Structural/Mechanical Product Development

The primary ANSYS solution products in the structural area are ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Structural. Using these solutions, you can import geometries, optimize meshing, and set boundary conditions. Following these preprocessing steps, you can perform analyses of strength, vibration, motion and thermal properties of the system, and obtain graphic representations showing how these properties vary across the geometry under the chosen conditions. Based on these results, you may want to modify your design to address any problem areas and run the simulation again. After a few iterations, your results will reveal an optimal design of the part or system under development.
