Introduction to ANSYS ICEM CFD


The purpose of this course is to teach the basic tools and methods for generating meshes with ANSYS ICEM CFD Tetra-Prism and HEXA. The course presents best-practice meshing techniques and the tools required to efficiently generate high-quality meshes based on tetrahedral / prismatic and hexahedral elements.

Learning Outcome

  • Discover the ICEM CFD meshing interface

  • Learn how to clean and defeature your geometry

  • Creating  tetra/prism meshes

  • Creating hexahedral meshes

  • How to merge terta/prism and hexa meshes in ICEM CFD

  • How to look to the Mesh metrics and statistics

  • How to improve the mesh quality


  • Basic knowledge of geometry and meshing principles.

Target Audience: Engineers and Designers tending to mesh their geometry and prepare it for a Fluid or Mechanical simulation.

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

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.
