www.ansys.com ANSYS Advantage Volume II, Issue 2, 2008 40 BOOK REVIEWS In my work at Cornell University, I have been using traditional ANSYS Mechanical software for the last seven years to teach students the basics of finite element analysis (FEA) applications. Recently, a few passing encounters with the ANSYS Workbench platform — mostly through students returning from industry stints — piqued my interest in the sleek, modern interface. Two new books published by Schroff Development Corporation helped me cut my teeth on ANSYS Workbench release 11.0: ANSYS Workbench Tutorial by Kent Lawrence and ANSYS Workbench Software: Tutorial with Multimedia CD by Fereydoon Dadkhah and Jack Zecher. ANSYS Workbench Tutorial Lawrence’s book kicks off with three chapters on solid modeling using the ANSYS DesignModeler package. The first few tutorials cover solid model creation through extru- sion, revolution and sweeping of an L-shaped cross section. Modeling an assembly is demonstrated through the creation of a three-part clevis yoke assembly. It is well worth the time it takes to complete this tutorial successfully, since the book uses this model in a subsequent tutorial on simulation. The solid modeling portion of the book wraps up with exercises on parameters and surface/line models. The ANSYS Workbench interface simplifies working with computer-aided design (CAD) models created in other programs, and Lawrence briefly covers this topic in two separate places. I expect to be referring students to this coverage often. FEA coverage begins in chapter 4 with an introduction to the ANSYS Simulation module. The book assumes that readers already know the fundamentals of FEA, and it launches straight into the tutorials. The first considers the classic problem of a plate with a central circular hole — a favorite of college professors. This tutorial solves a 3-D
