ANSYS Mechanical Structural Nonlinearities is a 2-day training course for engineers that need to perform structural nonlinear analyses using the ANSYS Mechanical. This course is intended for users who have taken the ANSYS Mechanical Introduction course and who are already familiar with the procedures for performing a linear static analysis in ANSYS Mechanical.

After completing the course, students should be able to perform, in ANSYS Mechanical, a nonlinear structural analysis.

Course Description

The course introduces the nonlinear solution procedure and covers how to setup a structural nonlinear analysis, define nonlinear solution options, and review the nonlinear results. Advanced contact analysis procedures are discussed for simulating contact between two or more solid bodies. In addition, metal plasticity, how to diagnose non-convergence problems, and how to interface with ANSYS are also covered in the training course. An optional third day on advanced materials is available on demand only. Please contact us for details.

Course Topics Include:

  • Structural Nonlinearities
  • Advanced Contact
  • Metal Plasticity
  • Nonlinear Diagnostics
  • Accessing ANSYS Options


Each course chapter is followed by "hands-on" workshops and exercises.

Recommended Follow-on Courses (which is dependent upon the student's interests and applications)

  • Heat Transfer
  • Dynamics
  • Rigid Body Flexible Body Dynamics
  • Using Command Objects
