Beam analysis on APDL

    • Ananth Narayan
      Hello Can anybody tell me, how to do analysis on various beams especially SSB. Apdl I use is from 19.0.

      Hello Ananth,

      Here is a small video tutorial which performs a SSB in Ansys. This is using an old version of ANSYS. However, the analysis should be similar. I hope this helps.

      Best Regards,

      Dear karthik

      In ansys 10.1 2d beam is used but in 19.0 beam 188 which is 3d beam. Please try in 19.0. There was a statement that "beam 188 can be used as 2d beam".

        There are numerous solved examples you can use and learn from in the verification manual. Please check it out.

        Also, please note that there are other examples available on the Cornell website.
