Finite Element Simulations with ANSYS Workbench 16 is a comprehensive and easy to understand workbook. It utilizes step-by-step instructions to help guide readers to learn finite element simulations. Twenty seven real world case studies are used throughout the book. Many of these cases are industrial or research projects the reader builds from scratch. All the files readers may need if they have trouble are available for download on the publishers website. Companion videos that demonstrate exactly how to preform each tutorial are available to readers by redeeming the access code that comes in the book. Relevant background knowledge is reviewed whenever necessary. To be efficient, the review is conceptual rather than mathematical. Key concepts are inserted whenever appropriate and summarized at the end of each chapter. Additional exercises or extension research problems are provided as homework at the end of each chapter.
A learning approach emphasizing hands-on experiences spreads through this entire book. A typical chapter consists of 6 sections. The first two provide two step-by-step examples. The third section tries to complement the exercises by providing a more systematic view of the chapter subject. The following two sections provide more exercises. The final section provides review problems.
Who this book is for
This book is designed to be used mainly as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate students. It will work well in:
- a finite element simulation course taken before any theory-intensive courses
- an auxiliary tool used as a tutorial in parallel during a Finite Element Methods course
- an advanced, application oriented, course taken after a Finite Element Methods course

About the Author
Professor Lee has been working on finite element simulations for more than 30 years, including applications, software development, research, and teaching. He graduated from the Department of Civil Engineering, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan in 1977 and was subsequently qualified as a Professional Engineer.
With his P.E. license, he became a structural engineering practitioner as well as a software developer in Taipei. During that period, he and his partners designed many high-rise buildings and developed several finite element analysis programs, which were then commercialized.
He received his M.S. in 1984 and Ph.D. in 1989, both from University of Iowa, USA. After that, he started to work as a Research Scientist in an Industry-University Cooperated Research Center of the University of Iowa. One of his functions was to integrate commercially available FEM programs with the programs developed by the Center, creating new engineering capabilities to support the industrial members of the Center.
Today, Professor Lee is teaching in National Cheng Kung University, one of the most prestigious universities in Taiwan. He has authored three English books: "Finite Element Simulations with ANSYS Workbench", "Mechanics of Materials Labs with SolidWorks Simulation", and "Engineering Dynamics Labs with SolidWorks Motion"; and two Chinese books: "Engineering Analysis with ANSYS: Fundamentals and Concepts" (2005) and "Taguchi Methods: Principles and Practices of Quality Design" (2000, 2008, 2011). He runs 6 km every morning and takes care of his gardens during weekends.
