ANSYS is a general purpose software, used to simulate interactions of all disciplines of physics, structural, vibration, fluid dynamics, heat transfer and electromagnetic for engineers.So ANSYS, which enables to simulate tests or working conditions, enables to test in virtual environment before manufacturing prototypes of products. Furthermore, determining and improving weak points, computing life and foreseeing probable problems are possible by 3D simulations in virtual environment.

ANSYS software with its modular structure as seen in the table below gives an opportunity for taking only needed features. ANSYS can work integrated with other used engineering software on desktop by adding CAD and FEA connection modules.

The ANSYS Workbench environment is an intuitive up-front finite element analysis tool that is used in conjunction with CAD systems and/or DesignModeler. ANSYS Workbench is a software environment for performing structural, thermal, and electromagnetic analyses. The class focuses on geometry creation and optimization, attaching existing geometry, setting up the finite element model, solving, and reviewing results. The class will describe how to use the code as well as basic finite element simulation concepts and results interpretation.
