Aims

To
enabl
e
learners to use the basic features of the ANSYS FE software and ANSYS WorkBench
CAE simulation suite


Learning Outcomes


on successful completion of this module, students will be able to:

1.

to acquire competence in computer modelling of typical engineerin
g problems


2.

to raise awareness of the many different forms of computer generated results from the ANSYS
FE software package and evaluation techniques to verify these.


3.

to provide an appreciation in the numerical techniques used to solve static engineering

problems
with
some
reliance on mathematical rigour.


4.

to obtain knowledge of how the ANSYS workbench suite interacts with other CAD
environments specifically SolidWorks

and ProEngineer/Mechanica.

Teaching and Learning Strategy

Building on prior knowledge and application
and industrial knowledge solid and structural
mechanics
, this module concentrates

on the
analysis and evaluation of mechanical engineering
design
s and structures
.

The emphasis is on predictab
le, reliable design performance using basic
concepts of stress, deformation, elastic, plastic of materials. The learners should also gain an
appre
ciation of numerical techniques used in computational engineering i.e.

h
-
type and p
-
type

finite element, finite difference, boundary element method.

The strategy will be a very hand
-
on
approach i.e. learners will be shown how to use the software to solve a

variety of real
engineering problems via

c
ase studies, tutorials
, and design problems developing
confidence,
competence and
synthesis.



Teaching and Learning Methods

Short
demonstrations

are

followed by realistic numerical engineering examples that will
be initially
approximated to simplistic analytical problems that can be solved. These will then be solved using
the ANSYS software in both simplistic and complex forms
.

Tutorials provide a supportive
environment for learning and formative feedback.

Student

centred and group work will provide
case
-
study opportunities from a selection of the following:




Modelling of a pressurised aerosol container



Modelling and analysis of
physics toys




Modelling and analysis of garden shears



Structural analysis of furniture



Vibration analysis of a motorsport component.



Analysis of aerofoil section



Analysis of medical equipment such as artificial bone and joints



Dynamic analysis of structural components


Assessment Strategy

There will normally be two pieces of coursework

on t
aking up 25% introducing the basic principles
of the software and addressing most of the core the course material
.
The second would usually be a
work
-
based (or elements of a students final year) project. T
he exam
ination component

will
be a
three
-
hour open
book test.
