# Mastering ANSYS with FEA V.3 (Problems on Beams & Plates)

Finite Element Analysis of Beams and Plates using ANSYS Mechanical APDL

Engineering Design & Analysis is a very important subject to every engineering students. Solving those engineering problems theoretically is sometimes difficult for the young engineering students. In these cases by applying the principles of Finite Element Analysis and using ANSYS Mechanical APDL as a tool you can solve any of those types of problems very easily. This is the beauty of this software. ANSYS Mechanical APDL for Finite Element Analysis provides a hands-on introduction to engineering analysis using finite element programs. ANSYS Mechanical APDL is the foundation for all sophisticated features, many of which are not exposed in the ANSYS Workbench user interface. You will find a practical and integrated approach that combines finite element theory with best practices for developing, verifying, validating and interpreting the results of finite element models. Even Analysis with ANSYS Mechanical APDL is much simpler and easier compared to other software, and even it provides a high level of accuracy. With your gained proficiency and conception, you can apply this knowledge to efficiently set up, solve, and post process virtually to any type of analysis.
