Tutorial - Solving 2D Truss problem using Mechanical APDL (ANSYS)?

This is our problem which we are going to solve. In initial step we will identify the keypoints. The keypoints are

1. 0 0 0
2. 3000 3000 0
3. 6000 0 0
4. 0 3000 0
5. 6000 3000 0
6. 3000 6000 0
7. 0 6000 0
8. 6000 6000 0
9. 0 9000 0
10. 3000 9000 0
11. 6000 9000 0
12. 0 12000 0
13. 3000 12000 0
14. 6000 12000 0
15. 3000 15000 0

In general, a finite element solution may be broken into the following three stages.

1. Preprocessing: defining the problem;
- Define keypoints/lines/areas/volumes
- Define element type and material/geometric properties
- Mesh lines/areas/volumes as required

2. Solution: assigning loads, constraints and solving;

3. Postprocessing:
- Lists of nodal displacements
- Element forces and moments
- Deflection plots
- Stress contour diagrams

We will go through these and solve the problem. I will suggest you to go through this tutorial before solving this problem. http://grabcad.com/questions/tutorial-2d-truss-analysis-in-mechanical-apdl-ansys-part-1
