Solid mechanics tutorial

Solid mechanics tutorial

The theoretical knowledge from the lecture is extended in this tutorial. Therefore the commercial finite element software ANSYS is used to caculate different structure mechanical problems.

Four practical exercises and a final self-chosen project are carried out to gain a better insight into the workflow with a FEM software tool.

The exercices and the final report will be done in groups of 2 people.

The tutorial bases on the lecture finite element analysis in structural mechanics. This lecture should be already heared.
