Ansys SPEOS Optimization with Ansys DesignXplorer

Course Overview

This course will give an overview of the optimizations and will teach you how to undertake an optimization in Ansys SPEOS with Ansys Workbench Direct Optimization. It covers a basic optimization first then introduces the script parameters and scripts for more controls during optimization. The challenge taken to exemplify the optimization is getting the minimum deviation angle of a prism.


  • The completion of Ansys SPEOS Scripting Parameters.

Target Audience:
