Numerical Solution — Lesson 6

Created by Sebastien Lachance-Barrett

To obtain the numerical solution, click “Solve.” Ansys Structural formed the stiffness matrix for each element, assembled the global stiffness matrix and inverted it to get the nodal displacements. This is the bulk of the computation that the Ansys solver performs. The results that we will look at next are derived from these nodal displacements.
