Unformatted text preview: imary purpose of this manual is to demonstrate a wide range of ANSYS elements and capabilities in
straightforward problems which have "classical" or readily-obtainable theoretical solutions. Furthermore, the
close agreement of the ANSYS solutions to the theoretical results in this manual is intended to provide user
confidence in the ANSYS solutions. An attempt has been made to include most element types and major solution
capabilities of ANSYS in this set of test cases. These problems may then serve as the basis for additional validation
and qualification of ANSYS capabilities by the user for specific applications that may be of interest. 1.2. Program Overview
The ANSYS element library contains more than sixty elements for static and dynamic analyses, over twenty for
heat transfer analyses, and includes numerous magnetic, field, and special purpose elements. This variety of
elements allows the ANSYS program to analyze 2-D and 3-D frame structures, piping systems, 2-D plane and
axisymmetric solids, 3-D solids, flat plates, axisymmetric and 3-...
