ANSYS Mechanical (Workbench) - Dynamics


Introduction to ANSYS Mechanical (Workbench) and basic familiarity with dynamics.


ANSYS Workbench - Dynamics is a two day class that presents the techniques for analyzing the dynamic response of structures using the ANSYS Workbench environment. Structural dynamics describes analyses where the response changes with time. Various analysis types are available to predict the natural frequencies and mode shapes, the steady-state response to sinusoidal loading, the general response to time-varying loads, and the random vibration of a structure using a power spectral density function (PSD). This class will present basic theoretical background and describe how to incorporate these dynamic effects into a structural analysis.

Learning Objectives

  • Successful completion of the course will provide students with the ability to use ANSYS Workbench to perform dynamic structural finite element analyses, including modal, harmonic, general transient, and random vibrations.
  • Students will learn the basics of the theoretical background of these dynamic effects.

Immediate Benefits

  • The student will be able to analyze dynamic structural finite element analyses using the ANSYS Workbench Environment upon completion of the class.
  • The student will gain practical knowledge in understanding the different types of dynamic analysis, how to identify them in real-world problems, and how to obtain and interpret results.
