An ANSYS primer for an experienced FE structural engineer

An ANSYS primer for an experienced FE structural engineer

An ANSYS primer for an experienced FE structural engineer

(OP)
Hello everyone,
     I've been working in the field of FE structural analysis for the past seventeen years. I've extensively used i-Deas, Nastran, Radioss, Pamcrash, LS-Dyna and, lately, have concentrated on Abaqus which is the software I know best.
The analyses I need to use, in order of importance for the work I have to do, are
-    Implicit linear and nonlinear static.
-    Explicit nonlinear dynamic (crash analyses).
-    Implicit linear dynamic (modal analyses, frequency response).

     Starting mid March I'll be working at a client's where, among other things, I'll need do perform analyses with ANSYS which I never have used and of which I have no availability at the moment (although I'm awaiting a short time license as soon as the buy gets through with the company's bureaucracy).

     Any tips as to how to transition from the software I already know, how to get started. Is Ansys very dissimilar from Abaqus?

Thanks in advance,

Hello and welcome to the forum,
A good place to start for some Ansys tutorials would be:
http://www.mece.ualberta.ca/tutorials/ansys/
They might be more basic than what you're after but are a good place to learn how to drive the software.
I went the other way to you, I've used Ansys for many years but recently had to start working with Abaqus. I found Abaqus a lot harder to get into than Ansys but I think Abaqus can do more if you can get it to do what you want. I found the Ansys help file to be a lot more useful than the Abaqus help files.
Cheers
George
