Pre-Analysis & Start-Up


It is recommended that you make some back-of-the-envelope estimates of expected results before launching into your computer solution. Here

for which the following formula for the axial stress concentration factor, K, holds (Roarkā€™s Formulas for Stress and Strain, Warren C. Young and Richard G. Budynas, 2002):

We'll compare the above axial stress concentration factor to the value obtained from ANSYS.


Launch ANSYS Workbench and start a "Static Structural" analysis in the project page as shown in the video below.
