Editorial Reviews
The nine lessons in the ANSYS Release 10 Tutorial introduce the reader to effective engineering problem solving through the use of this powerful finite element analysis tool. Topics include trusses, plane stress, plane strain, axisymmetric problems, 3-D problems, beams, plates, conduction/convection heat transfer, thermal stress, and p-method solutions. It is designed for practicing and student engineers alike and is suitable for use with an organized course of instruction or for self-study.
