Math behind the Ansys Solver

    • Ernest jamesr905

      Hi, there I am a graduate student and part of my work for my Master's project is to do a deep dive into the workings of ANSYS. My main question is about the math used in the ANSYS solver system that allows it to calculate a specific output answer. If you don't know specifcally I would also, if possible, like a hint or lead on where I can dig deeper to find how it works. I hope that you will be able to help point me in the right direction. Anyway, thank you for your time

      See the help manual (theory reference), and the free course from EDX on FEA using ANsys where they explain how a solver works overall.


      Also books in FEA will explain that.

      Thanks Eric,
      @Ernest, you can refer any fundamental books on FEA which can give you basic idea about this.
      Some additional links:


      How to retrieve the equations used for a simulation/used in the solver?


      Even you can refer our help sections which have information specific to different analysis types which can give you basic idea.
