• A comprehensive easy to understand workbook using step-by-step instructions 
• Designed as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate students 
• Relevant background knowledge is reviewed whenever necessary 
• Twenty seven real world case studies are used to give readers hands-on experience 

Finite Element Simulations with ANSYS Workbench 17 is a comprehensive and easy to understand workbook. Printed in full color, it utilizes rich graphics and step-by-step instructions to guide you through learning how to perform finite element simulations using ANSYS Workbench. 

Twenty seven real world case studies are used throughout the book. Many of these case studies are industrial or research projects that you build from scratch. Prebuilt project files are available for download should you run into any problems.

Relevant background knowledge is reviewed whenever necessary. To be efficient, the review is conceptual rather than mathematical. Key concepts are inserted whenever appropriate and summarized at the end of each chapter. Additional exercises or extension research problems are provided as homework at the end of each chapter. 

A learning approach emphasizing hands-on experiences spreads though this entire book. A typical chapter consists of 6 sections. The first two provide two step-by-step examples. The third section tries to complement the exercises by providing a more systematic view of the chapter subject. The following two sections provide more exercises. The final section provides review problems. 

Who this book is for 

This book is designed to be used mainly as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate students. It will work well in: 

• a finite element simulation course taken before any theory-intensive courses 
• an auxiliary tool used as a tutorial in parallel during a Finite Element Methods course 
• an advanced, application oriented, course taken after a Finite Element Methods course
