Introduction To Ansys Workbench

The ANSYS Workbench that can solve limited types of three dimensional problems begins with Start Page that has Geometry, Simulation, and Empty Project as shown below. The Geometry is to create the model and the Simulation is for analysis. All of these are saved individ ally. ote that all of them are saved in the same directory if the pro!ect is to be reopened later. When a pro!ect is reopend with the associated "eometry or Sim lation files in other directory, the Ansys Workbench iss es an error message and # its.
