For this tutorial the windows version of
ANSYS 8.0 will be demonstrated. The path
below is one example of how to access
ANSYS; however, this path will not be the
same on all computers.
For Windows XP start ANSYS by either
using:
>
Start > All Programs > ANSYS 8.0
> ANSYS
or the desktop icon (right) if present.
Note: The path to start ANSYS 8.0 may be different for
each computer. Check with your local network manager to
find out how to start ANSYS 8.0.

Once ANSYS 8.0 is loaded, two separate
windows appear: the main ANSYS
Advanced Utility window and the ANSYS
Output window.
also known as the Graphical User Interface
(GUI),is the location where all the user
interface takes place.
The Output Window documents all actions
taken, displays errors, and solver status.

The main utility window can be broken up
into three areas. Ashort explanation of each
will be given.
First is the Utility Toolbar:
From this toolbar you can use the command
line approach to ANSYS and access multiple
menus that you can’t get to from the main
Note: It would be beneficial to take some time and explore
these pull down menus and familiarize yourself with them.
Second, is the ANSYS Main Menu,as
shown to the right. This menu is designed
to use a top down approach and contains all
the steps and options necessary to properly
preprocess, solve, and postprocess a model.
Third is the Graphical Interface window
where all geometry, boundary conditions,
and results are displayed.
The tool bar located on the right hand side
has all the visual orientation tools that are

With ANSYS 8.0 open select
> File > Change Jobname
and enter a new job name in the blank field
of the change jobname window.
Enter the problem title for this tutorial.
> OK
In order to know where all the output files
from ANSYS will be placed, the working
directory must be set, in order to avoid
using the default folder C:\Documents and
Settings.
> File > Change Directory > then
select the location that you want
all of the ANSYS files to be saved.
Be sure to change the working directory at
the beginning of every problem.
With the jobname and directory set, the
ANSYS database (.db) file can be given a
title. Following the same steps as you did
to change the jobname and the directory,
give the model a title.

To begin the analysis, a preference needs to
be set. Preferences allow you to apply filter-
ing to the menu choices; ANSYS will
remove or gray out functions that are not
needed. A structural analysis, for example,
will not need all the options available for a
thermal, electromagnetic, or fluid dynamic
analysis.
Place a check mark
next to the
Structural box.
> OK
Look at the ANSYS Main Menu. Click once
on the “+” sign next to Preprocessor
.
> M
The Preprocessor options currently avail-
able are displayed in the expansion of the
Main Menu tree as shown to the right. The
most important preprocessing functions are
defining the element type, defining real con-
straints and material properties, and model-
ing and meshing the geometry.

The ANSYS Main Menu is designed in such
a way that you should start at the beginning
and work towards the bottom of the menu
in preparing, solving, and analyzing your
model.
Note: This procedure will be shown throughout the tuto-
rial.
Select the “+” next to Element Type or click
on Element Type. The extension of the
menu is shown to the right.
> Element Type
Type window appears. Select add and the
Library of Element Types windowappears.
In this window, select the types of elements
to be defined and used for the problem. For
a pictorial description of what each element
can be used for, click on the Help button.
For this model 2D Elastic Beam elements
will be used. The degrees of freedom for
this type of element are UX, UY, and
ROTZ, which will suit the needs of this
problem.
> Beam > 2D Elastic 3
> OK
In the Element Types window Type 1
Beam3 should be visible signaling that
the element type has been chosen.

Before closing the Element Type window,
and with Beam3 still highlighted select the
Options button.
> Options...
In the Beam3 Element Type Options
windowchange the the Member force
+ moment output from Exclude out-
put to Include output. This tells
ANSYS to include the moment and
force information needed to create the
diagrams.
> OK
Close the Element Types window.
> Close
The properties for the Beam3 element need
to be chosen. This is done by adding a Real
Constant.
> Preprocessor > Real Constants
The Real Constants windowshould appear.
Select add to create a new set.
The Element Type for Real Constants win-
dow should appear. From this window,
select Beam 3 as the element type.
> Type 1 Beam3 > OK
The Real Constant window for Beam3 will
appear. From this window you can interac-
tively customize the element type.

The material properties for the Beam3
element need to be defined.
> Preprocessor > Material Props
> Material Models
The Define Material Models Behavior win-
dowshould now be open.
We will use isotropic, linearly, elastic, struc-
tural properties.
Select the following from the Material
Models Available window:
> Structural > Linear > Elastic
> Isotropic
The window titled Linear Isotropic
Properties for Material Number 1 now
appears.
Enter 30e6 for EX (Young's Modulus) and

The next step is to define the keypoints
> Preprocessing > Modeling
> Create > Keypoints > In Active CS
The Create Keypoints in Active CS win-
dow will now appear. Here the KP’s will be
given numbers and their respective (XYZ)
coordinates.
Enter the KP numbers and coordinates
that will correctly define the beam.
Select Apply after each KP has been
defined.
Note: Be sure to change the keypoint number every
time you click apply to finish adding a keypoint. If
you don’t it will replace the last keypoint you entered with
the new coordinates you just entered.
KP # 1: X=0, Y=0, Z=0
KP # 2: X=2, Y=0, Z=0
KP # 3: X=4, Y=0, Z=0
KP # 4: X=6, Y=0, Z=0
KP # 5: X=10, Y=0, Z=0
Select OK when complete.
In case you make a mistake in creating the
keypoints, select:
> Preprocessing > Modeling
> Delete > Keypoints
Select the incorrect KP’s and select OK.
Your screen should look similar to the exam-
ple below.

At times it will be helpful to turn on the key-
point numbers.
> PlotCtrls > Numbering > put a
checkmark next to keypoint
numbers > OK
Other numbers (for lines, areas, etc..) can be
turned on in a similar manner.
At times it will also be helpful to have a list
of keypoints (or nodes, lines, elements,
loads, etc.). To generate a list of keypoints:
> List > Keypoint
> Coordinates Only
Alist similar to the one to the
right should appear.
The next step is to create lines between the
KP’s.
> Preprocessing > Modeling
> Create > Lines > Lines
> Straight Lines
The Create Straight Lines window should
appear. You will create 4 lines. Create line 1
between the first two keypoints.
For line 1: MB1 KP1 then MB1 KP 2.
The other lines will be created in a similar
manner.
For line 2: MB1 KP2 then MB1 KP 3.
For line 3: MB1 KP3 then MB1 KP 4.
For line 4: MB1 KP4 then MB1 KP 5.
Verify that each line only goes between the
specified keypoints. When you are done
creating the lines click ok in the Create
Straight Lines window.
> OK
If you make a mistake, use the following
steps to delete the lines:
> Preprocessing > Modeling
> Delete > Lines Only
You should now have something similar to
the image shown below.

Now that the model has been created, it
needs to be meshed. Models must be
meshed before they can be solved. Models
are meshed with elements.
First, the element size needs to be specified.
> Preprocessing > Meshing
> Size Cntrls > Manual Size
> Lines > All Lines
The Element Sizes on All Selected Lines
windowshould appear. From this window,
the number of divisions per element can be
defined and also the element edge length.
Enter 0.1 into the Element edge length field.
> OK
Note: you could change the element edge length after com-
pleting the tutorial to a different value and rerun the solu-
tion to see how it affects the results.
With the mesh parameters complete, the
lines representing the beam can now be
meshed. Select:
> Preprocessing > Meshing > Mesh
> Lines
From the Mesh Lines window select Pick
All.
> Pick all
Selecting Pick all will mesh all of the line
segments that have been created.
The meshed line should appear similar to
the one shown below. This completes the
preprocessing phase.

Solution
16
We will now move into the solution phase.
Before applying the loads and constraints to
the beam, we will select to start a new analy-
sis:
> Solution > Analysis Type
> New Analysis
For Type of Analysis select Static and select
OK.
The way this problem is setup, no con-
straints need to be added. Other problems
which ask you to find shear and bending
moment diagrams may require the use of
constraints.
The forces and moments will now be added.
It will be easier to select the keypoints (the
locations of the forces and moments) if the
keypoint numbers are turned on as previ-
ously explained. However, the current view
probably shows just the elements and not
the keypoints. You can see both the elements
and the keypoints on the screen by selecting:
> Plot > Multiplots
To see just the keypoints;
> Plot > Keypoints > Keypoints
way that will make it easier to complete
each step in tutorial.

The loads will now be applied to the beam.
> Solutions > Define Loads > Apply
> Structural > Force/Moment
> On Keypoints
The Apply F/M on KPs window should
now appear.
Select KP1 (hint it might be hidden behind
the symbol for the coordinate system) and
select OK.
In the Apply F/M on KPs windowthat now
appears change the direction to of the force
to FY and give it a value of 400.
> Apply
Repeat these same steps to apply the rest
of the forces and moments. Moments are
applied in the same way except that in the
Apply F/M on KPs window MZ is chosen
as the direction. Select Apply after each
one you create and close the window when
you are done creating all of the them.
Location Direction Value
KP1 MZ 400
KP2 FY -400
KP2 MZ -400
KP3 FY 200
KP4 FY -200
KP5 FY 400
When you are done, your screen should
look similar to the picture below.

The distributed loads will now be applied to
the beam.
> Solutions > Define Loads > Apply
> Structural > Pressure > On Beams
The Apply PRES on Beams windowshould
appear.
Select all the elements between keypoints 2
and 3 (there should be 20 in all).
> Apply
The expanded Apply Pressure on Beams
window should appear. From this win-
dow the direction of the pressure and its
magnitude can be specified.
Enter 100 in the Pressure at Node I value
field which will apply the pressure over
the beam from keypoints 2 to 3. Apositive
entry in this field is defined as a down-
ward pressure.
> OK
The first distributed load now appears on
the model.

shown, but with the following changes:
For the second distributed load select all of
the elements between KP3 and KP4 (should
be 20 of them). Set the value at node I to be
-100 (this will make the load act upward).
> OK
For the third distributed load select all of the
elements between KP4 and KP5 (should be
40 of them). Set the value at node I to be 100.
> OK
The model is now completed.

The next step in completing this tutorial is to
solve the current load step that has been cre-
ated. Select:
Solution > Solve > Current LS
The Solve Current Load Step window will
appear. To begin the analysis select OK.
If a Verify window appears
telling that the load data pro-
duced 1 warning, just select
Yes to proceed with the solu-
tion.
The analysis should begin and when
complete a Note windowshould appear
that states the analysis is done.
Close both the Note window and /STATUS
Command window.
If your model is still in the 3-D view use the
view icons on the right of the screen to bring
the model to a front view again.

Post Processing
22
There are several different ways to view the
results of a solution. To find the shear and
bending moment diagrams we define what
is called an element table and then plot a
contour plot.
Defining an element table is nothing more
than a way of telling ANSYS which solution
items you want to see.
To define an element table, select the follow-
ing:
> General Postproc > Element Table
> Define Table
The Element Table Data window now
We will define the element table items by
using the “By sequence num” option. For
the Beam3 element, the sequence numbers
for the I moment (at left end of beam) and
the J moment (at right end of beam) are 6
and 12. The sequence numbers for the
forces in the Y direction are 2 and 8. The
sequence numbers can be found for any ele-
ment in the help documentation. Simply do
a search in help for the element that you are
using, and then scroll down in the text to
find the table that lists the sequence num-
bers.

Hand Calculations
26
Generally, shear and bending moment diagrams can easily be constructed by hand for
problems such as the one shown in this tutorial. The purpose of the tutorial was to show
how to find shear and bending moment diagrams in ANSYS, so that the process could
then be applied to more complex geometry and load conditions. Please note the nota-
tion used for the hand calculations (shown at the bottom of the diagrams) as it explains
why the shear diagram given by ANSYS and the one shown in the hand calculations are
opposites.
