ANSYS 11.0 for Designers textbook has been written to assist the engineering students as well as the practicing designers who are new to the field of Finite Element Analysis (FEA). In this textbook, the chapters are arranged in a pedagogical sequence covering the basic FEA concepts, modeling, and analysis of engineering problems using ANSYS. Contours and line diagrams have been used throughout the textbook to facilitate better understanding of various analysis techniques that will improve the productivity and efficiency of the users. Written with the tutorial point of view and the learn-by-doing theme, the textbook is ideally suited for learning at your convenience and at your pace. This textbook covers the following simulation streams of ANSYS:

1. Structural Analysis
            Static Structural Analysis
            Dynamic Analysis
            Modal Analysis
            Harmonic Analysis
            Transient Analysis
            Nonlinear Analysis

2. Thermal Analysis
            Steady State Thermal Analysis
            Transient Thermal Analysis

The following are some additional features of this book:
Consists of 11 chapters that are organized in a pedagogical sequence covering the major types of analyses.
The first page of every chapter summarizes the topics that are covered in it.
·         Real-world examples are included that focus on industry experience.
Two tutorial-based chapters have been added in this textbook to enable the users to understand and solve various
analysis problems in an easy and efficient manner.
Step-by-step tutorials have been provided to guide the users through the learning process.
Tips and notes are provided throughout the textbook to give additional information on various topics.
