**Cantilever beam using nodes in ANSYS APDL:**A”Cantilever beam using Nodes”is constructed in ANSYS Mechanical APDL 15.0 to determine the Nodal Deflections,Reaction forces,Stresses developed(X-Component of stress,Y- Component of stress & Z- Component of stress under{ Deformed shape with undeformed model,Deformed shape,Deformed+undeformed edge} etc. and this can be possible by the application of forces on the system.In this article I am going to explain you about How to do the cantilever beam using nodes in ANSYS APDL.

**Procedure for cantilever beam using nodes in ANSYS APDL:**

To perform any operation,a suitable procedure is required.Therefore the step by step procedure of cantilever beam is shown below.

This can be analyzed in ANSYS Mechanical APDL 15.0 under four stages and are as follows.

Step1:Preferences

Step2: Preprocessor

Step3:Solution

Step 4:General Post Processor.

### The detailed explanation of above 4 steps are as follows:

**1.Preferences**–Structural-ok.

#### 2.Preprocessor:

- Element Type-Add-Beam-3D finite strain -ok.
- Material Properties-Material models-structural-Linear-Elastic-Isotropic-provide Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio.
- Sections-
- Modelling-provide the key points.
- Loads-apply-
- Force-on nodes –

**3.Solution:**

solve-current Ls-ok.

**4.General post processor:**It can be used to construct the graphs w.r.t the application of loads.

The detailed explanation of Cantilever beam is shown below in the form of video.
