ANSYS Videos on the ANSYS How To Channel

ansys you tubeOver the past year and a half, our team has been creating a large number of technical ANSYS videos that focus on a variety of areas. From ANSYS Electronics to ANSYS CFX, ANSYS Fluent to ANSYS Mechanical, ANSYS SCADE, and even ANSYS Student tips for those just getting started in the art of engineering simulation.

Today, I’d like to share a few of the examples you’ll find before I send you off to explore on your own.

This first video I’m highlighting is featuring ANSYS AIM, with a demonstration of performing a stress analysis of an aircraft engine bracket. You get a look at how to import your model to begin your work. The demo is showing how you can study the effect of the stress on the pinholes location that will be used to bolt the bracket to the engine.

For users of ANSYS Fluent, you’ll find a two-part look at wrapping a generic combustor geometry, including using diagnostic tool driven gap closing, how to simplify and close the geometry, setting up scoped sizing controls, and defining a material point and periodicity.

Recently, we also released a six-part look at electro-thermal analyses of a printed circuit board. In part one, you’ll learn how to import the board from ODB++ format into SIwave and review the layout and schematic of the PCB. Part two demonstrates how to set up the board and define current and voltage sources for power integrity analyses. Part three will walk you through how to perform post processing in SIwave and Icepak after specifying natural convection as the thermal simulation type.. Part four shows you how to perform post processing in Icepak after specifying forced convection as the thermal simulation type in SIwave.

In part five, we show how to use the same printed circuit board and link its electro-thermal analysis results to ANSYS Mechanical using ANSYS Workbench, including how to set up the board to perform structural analysis. And finally, part six demonstrates how to use ANSYS Workbench and ANSYS Mechanical to perform a structural analysis on a printed circuit board and generate graphs for stress, deformation, and strain.

So to close out this post…I hope I have piqued your curiosity to head over to the ANSYS How To Videos YouTube channel, poke around, and find topics of interest. While you’re there, don’t forget to subscribe to receive notifications when new videos are posted. Enjoy!
