The majority of these examples are simple verification problems to show you how to use the intermediate techniques in ANSYS. You may be using a different version of ANSYS than what was used to create these tutorials, therefore, make note of small changes in the menu structure. These tutorials can be completed in any order, however, it is expected that you have completed the Basic Tutorials before attempting these.

**Effect of Self Weight**

Incorporating the weight of an object into the finite element analysis is shown in this simple cantilever beam example.**Distributed Loading**

The application of distributed loads and the use of element tables to extract data is expalined in this tutorial.**NonLinear Analysis**

A large moment is applied to the end of a cantilever beam to explore Geometric Nonlinear behaviour (large deformations). There is also an associated tutorial for an explanation of the**Graphical Solution Tracking (GST)**plot.**Buckling**

In this tutorial both the Eigenvalue and Nonlinear methods are used to solve a simple buckling problem.**NonLinear Materials**

The purpose of the tutorial is to describe how to include material nonlinearities in an ANSYS model.**Dynamic Analysis**

These tutorial explore the dynamic analyis capabilities of ANSYS.**Modal**,**Harmonic**, and**Transient**Analyses are shown in detail.**Thermal Examples**

Analysis of a**pure conduction**, a**mixed convection/conduction/insulated**boundary condition example, and a**transient heat conduction analysis**.**Modelling Using Axisymmetry**

Utilizing axisymmetry to model a 3-D structure in 2-D to reduce computational time.
