ANSYS Mechanical Heat Transfer is a 2-day training course for engineers wishing to use ANSYS Mechanical to analyze the thermal response of structures and mechanical components to heat transfer effects. Develop the skills necessary to analyze the thermal response of structures and mechanical components to various heat loads. Learn and apply complete solution procedures for steady-state, transient, linear, and nonlinear thermal analyses. Explore advanced solution procedures that include APDL commands objects and coupled thermal-structural analysis.

After completing the course, students should be able to analyze, in ANSYS Mechanical, the thermal responses of structures involving conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer. .

Course Description

The course introduces the nonlinear solution procedure and covers how to setup a structural nonlinear analysis, define nonlinear solution options, and review the nonlinear results. Advanced contact analysis procedures are discussed for simulating contact between two or more solid bodies. In addition, metal plasticity, hyperelasticity (including curve-fitting tools to help translate experimental data to strain energy density function coefficients), how to diagnose non-convergence problems, and how to interface with ANSYS are also covered in the training course.

Course Topics Include:

  • Fundamental Concepts of Heat Transfer
  • Fundamental Concepts of ANSYS Mechanical
  • Steady State Heat Transfer (no mass transport)
  • Nonlinear and Transient Analysis
  • Additional Convection/Heat Flux Loading Options and Simple Thermal/Flow Elements
  • Radiation Heat Transfer
  • Phase Change Analysis
  • One Dimensional Flow Elements in Thermal Analysis

♦  Each course chapter is followed by “hands-on” workshops and exercises.
