The structure or overview of ANSYS Workbench in detailed

structure or overview of ANSYS Workbench:The workbench structure plays a vital role to understand the overview of analysis in a better manner.The ANSYS Workbench is a superb tool which can analyze the material and give the approximate results depends upon the loading condition.In this article,I am going to explain about the structure or overview of ANSYS Workbench in detailed manner.

ANSYS Workbench is a powerful simulation software which has a wide range of functionalities and the interface of workbench is described below and is as follows.

Interface of ANSYS Workbench:

Always the interface allows a quick start.The five platforms of ANSYS Workbench makes the analysis from the initial stage(i.e providing material specifications) to the final stage(Results) in an effective manner and are as follows.

  1. Parameterisation
  2. The direct access to CAD data
  3. Superb and powerful Meshing
  4. Efficiency    and
  5. Multi-Physics platform.

The list of parameters present in the above ANSYS Workbench interface are as follows.
