ANSYS Explicit Dynamics


This course will enable you to develop the basic skills necessary to implement complete Explicit Dynamics solution procedures in ANSYS Mechanical. Efficiently simulate 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 ANSYS Mechanical Getting Started – Parts 1 and 2 or Introduction to ANSYS Mechanical 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.

Target Audience: Engineers and Designers

Teaching Method:Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge.  A training certificate is provided to all attendees who complete the course.
