Nonlinear Buckling Analysis - e-Learning Presentation
This presentation accompanied the Nonlinear Buckling Analysis ANSYS e-Learning session, originally given in November 2014 by CAE Associates. To view a recording of the session, click here.
A common concern in structures subjected to compressive loading is failure due to buckling. Buckling is a structural instability that can be addressed using both linear and nonlinear approaches. In this ANSYS e-Learning session, CAE Associates' Senior Engineering Manager Mike Bak discusses the following topics:
- Overview and demonstration of performing a linear buckling analysis to obtain the theoretical buckling factor.
- Introduction to the nonlinear buckling approach to obtain a more conservative buckling response.
- Creation of imperfections in “perfect” structural models to obtain more realistic buckling response.
- Methods for determining when buckling occurs and modeling post-buckling behavior using ANSYS Mechanical (Workbench)
