Application of ANSYS to stress analysis

Abstract

Beams, plates, and shafts are fundamental component parts of machines and structures often encountered in daily life. These components must function properly and effectively, resisting mechanical loadings. The integrity of these parts must be ensured by adequate strength design to avoid excessive loads and deformation. The mechanics of materials can evaluate stresses and deformations induced in components of interest, but can merely cover simple problems like a slender bar subjected to bending, a plate under tension, a cylindrical bar twisted by torsional moment, etc. The finite element method, however, can make analyses of stresses and deformations in machines and structures in realistic ...
