### What is ANSYS AIM?

ANSYS Ansys AIM is a finite - element analysis package used widely in industry to simulate the response of a physical system to structural loading, and thermal and electromagnetic effects. ANSYS that offers single and multiphysics solutions results based on best in class solver technologies. ANSYS AIM uses the finite-element method to solve the underlying governing equations and the associated problem-specific boundary conditions.

### List of Learning Modules

Each learning module below contains a step-by-step tutorial that shows details of In this short course you will be taken through ANSYS AIM and learn how to solve a selected problem using ANSYS, a popular tool for finite-element analysis (FEA). The tutorial topics are drawn from Cornell University courses, the Prantil et al  textbook, student/research projects etc. If a tutorial is from a course, the relevant course number is indicated below. All tutorials have a common structure and use the same high-level steps starting with Pre-Analysis and ending with Verification and Validation . Pre-Analysis includes hand calculations to predict expected results while Verification and Validation can be thought of as a formal process for checking computer results. Both these steps are extremely important in practice though often overlooked. The pedagogical philosophy behind these modules is discussed in this article from the ANSYS Advantage magazinevariety of problems. The learning modules lead the user through the steps involved in solving a selected problem or set of problems. We not only provide the solution steps but also the rationale behind them. It is worthwhile for you to understand the underlying concepts as you travel through the learning modules in order to be able to correctly apply ANSYS AIM to other situations that you may encounter. You would be ill-served by clicking through the learning modules in zombie-mode. Each learning module is followed by problems which are geared towards strengthening and reinforcing the knowledge and understanding gained in the learning modules. Working through the problem sets is an intrinsic part of the learning process and shouldn't be skipped.
