# Analysis of Beam with UDL by ANSYS Mechanical APDL

Beams are descriptions of the structure or structural elements, but any structures such as motorized auto frames, plane mechanisms, engine settings, and other or structural systems contain beam constructions that are intended to carry adjacent loads are analyzed.

1. GIS

APDL stands for ANSYS Parametric Design Language. Concentrates on geometry creation and optimization, attaching current geometry, setting up the finite element model, resolving, and rereading results

Boolean Operations provide a means of the inclusion of sets of data using such reasonable operators as add, subtract, intersect, etc. There are Boolean operations available for volume, area, and line solid model units.

In this project, stress analysis is done on beams UDL (uniformly distributed load). Load-carrying beams are then modeled and studied for further analysis.
