Ansys LS-PrePost Advanced

Course Overview

This class covers advanced features in LS-PrePost. The discussed topics will help you become familiar with capabilities like geometry manipulation, meshing, LS-DYNA entity creation, and advanced post-processing.



  • Basic knowledge of LS-PrePost and LS-DYNA is required.

Target Audience: 

Any user interested in short duration analyses such as Drop test, Crashworthiness, Contact-Impact problems

Teaching Method:

The teaching method is simple and practical to reduce the barrier to learn advanced topics. The class relies on simple class-room introduction of advanced topics in simple and incremental way to make it easier to understand all topics
