Structural Mechanics Simulation with ANSYS Mechanical


Of all Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) solutions, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has gained tremendous importance in R&D across different industrial sectors for structural applications. However for those engineers embarking on FEA, or companies adopting the technique to improve designs or achieve certification of new products, there is a steep learning curve to overcome. Therefore, CADFEM has started a Structural Mechanics course with the aim of promoting the effective and reliable use of FEA, aiming at a fine balance between basic theoretical background that guides the tool and its application.

This course gives participants, a comprehensive knowledge with respect to geometry preparation for analysis using ANSYS DesignModeler and lays the foundation for performing structural mechanics simulation with ANSYS Mechanical.

Target Audience

Suitable targets for this course are the engineering graduates, designers or simulation engineers who would like to start or switch to simulations using ANSYS Workbench. This course will enable them achieve a solid foundation in FEA and impart the necessary practical skills to carry out robust, reliable and efficient simulations in their everyday professional life.
