This course will enable you to develop the basic skills necessary to implement complete Explicit Dynamics solution procedures in Ansys Mechanical. Explicit Dynamics is the preferred choice when simulating the dynamic response of highly transient, highly nonlinear physical phenomena like drop testing and high-speed impact. You’ll utilize the extensive library of nonlinear material models and body-to-body contact to produce faithful representations of real-world physical systems.
- Completion of the Ansys Mechanical Getting Started course is required.
- A technical education and a background in the fundamentals of finite element analysis are recommended. A basic background in the following areas is also recommended: dynamics, mechanics of materials, material modeling, and the physics of transient dynamic events. An engineering degree is not required.
Mechanical Engineers, Impact Dynamics Engineers, Drop Test Engineers and Designers working with structures that experience short-duration and/or high-speed impact events.
Lectures and computer workshops to give students the knowledge and confidence they’ll need to apply what they’ve learned to their own designs.
