It's a pleasure to welcome you to a hands-on introduction to engineering

simulations. I really appreciate your interest in the course. In this course


you will be learning fundamentals alongside ANSYS. ANSYS is a very
powerful commercial simulation tool that's used by professionals. We will be
using ANSYS has a problem-solving tool to solve interesting problems and real
applications. We'll also use it as a learning tool to understand the
fundamentals. The course uses a common approach to two popular solution
techniques--FEA or finite element analysis and CFD computational fluid
dynamics and we're taking a common approach to these to, you can see
them as variations on a similar theme. We will also take a common approach to
different physics physics consider structural mechanics, fluid dynamics and
heat transfer. The material is drawn from five courses in mechanical engineering
at Cornell University and we can range across courses and across physics
through the use of the ANSYS simulation tool. This is useful to see how these
different physics fit together because nature is multiphysics.
You'll be learning by doing and the course is organized around ANSYS case studies.
We have three FAA case studies one and conduction and two in structural
mechanics and the second structural mechanics module has been developed in
collaboration with Andy Sadhwani at SpaceX so it shows you fundamentals, it
involves the learning of ANSYS and it also involves learning of
industy practice so it's a very exciting module,
as are the others. We'll do 2 CFD case studies, and we'll do one case study that
involves
CFD and FEA, the coupling of two, this will show you one way fluid structure
interaction so this coupling you know you can transfer their loads from the
CFD to to do a structural analysis of FEA. The case studies have been tested on
ANSYS version 16 and when you get the free download make sure you're getting
Version 16.2 because that's the vision it's been tested on and then we provide
you that the geometry. It may not work with earlier versions and we have also
not tested it with version 17 which is a very recent release. In addition to the
ANSYScase studies there are big ideas
sections. The first one is What's Under the Black Box where I talk about how you
frame the simulation so that you look at it like an expert and this framing is
what we will use when we look at you know What's under the Black Box in the
ANSYS case studies. They are also big idea sections on FEA and CFD and these are
you know have been developed from the perspective of the code user and are you
suggesting time approached its like what do you really need to understand our
ANSYS and CFD to know what's happening and under black box when you going to the
ANSYS case studies. There are also big idea sections on solid mechanics and
fluid dynamics which are meant to help you understand the equations you know
what physical principles contained in the equations that we will be solving in
ANSYS and what are the assumptions contained in those equations and its here to
give you an intuitive feel. So by going to the case studies and going through
the big ideas
you should be able to learn how to move beyond garbage in garbage out, move
beyond just pushing buttons and start thinking like an expert.
