ANSYS Fluent Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) with ANSYS Mechanical (Self-paced Learning Available)


The ANSYS Fluent FSI course is an advanced course covering modeling approaches for fluid-structure interaction applications using ANSYS Fluent and ANSYS Mechanical. The course will cover setup, solution and convergence of one-way and two-way FSI simulations. Students must have experience running ANSYS Fluent and some prior experience using ANSYS Mechanical for the training to be effective.

Learning Outcome

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to select the most appropriate FSI approach, depending on their particular application and the required simulation accuracy.


  • Completion of the ANSYS Fluent Getting Started course is required.

  • Experience with ANSYS Fluent is strongly recommended.

  • Experience with ANSYS Mechanical is desirable.

Target Audience: Engineers and Designers

Teaching Method: Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge.

Self-paced Learning: Complete a class on your own schedule at your own pace. Scope is equivalent to Instructor led classes. Includes video lecture, workshops and input files. All our Self-Paced video courses are only available with an ANSYS Learning Hub subscription. Register for a subscription using the tab below or contact for more information.

Learning Options: Training materials for this course are available with a ANSYS Learning Hub Subscription. If there is no active public schedule available, private training can be arranged. Please contact us.
