Workbook V14.5

The purpose of this workbook is to introduce you to the extensive capabilities of CivilFEM and its modules. Each example is a complete step-by-step ANSYS with CivilFEM analysis procedure. They begin with a problem description that includes approaches and assumptions. A summary of steps in the form of tasks is then presented with each step being a hyperlink to a detailed series of procedural action substeps for each major task step.
Task steps are numbered sequentially and contain a series of related menu paths and action substeps.


Though not required, it is good practice for you to specify a particular jobname for each example. This will help you identify files generated by ANSYS with CivilFEM that are related to a particular analysis. When starting ANSYS with CivilFEM, you can specify the jobname in the launcher. While in ANSYS with CivilFEM, you can change the jobname by choosing:
Utility Menu > File > Change Jobname

then typing the jobname, and choosing OK.
Choosing an Example
We recommend that you run all the examples since can learn something from every problem, even if it is not in your particular field of interest or experience!
