Advanced Loads in Workbench e-Learning Presentation

A transcript of the Advanced Loads ANSYS e-Learning session, originally given in January 2013 by CAE Associates.

Most ANSYS users are aware that you can define constant value loading in the Workbench Mechanical tool. Did you know that you can also define loads that can be a function of position and time as well? View this presentation to learn more about using tabular and functional loading tools in ANSYS Workbench.

CAE Associates' Senior Engineering Manager Pat Cunningham, covers the capabilities within the ANSYS/Mechanical interface as well as the use of the External data utility for both static and transient analysis environments.


  • Loading types that can be defined using tables and functions.
  • Tips and tricks for defining advanced loading loading in Mechanical.
  • Using the External Data Utility to import spacially varying loads.
  • Using the Verification Tools to gain confidence in the mapping of imported loads.
