ANSYS Mechanical Structural Plastics


This course is designed for existing users of ANSYS Mechanical. You will learn and achieve an understanding of the available material models for plastics simulation. This course also covers some testing procedures to extract tests data for ANSYS simulations.

Learning Outcome

  • Understand the characteristics of Structural Plastics

  • Be familiar with the testing procedures

  • Learn about the ANSYS material models for Plastics modeling

  • Understand the needed inputs for material models

  • Be familiar with the workflow in ANSYS for material definition



  • Completion of the Introduction to ANSYS Mechanical Getting Started course is required.

  • Completion of the Mechanical Basic Structural Nonlinearities courses is recommended.

Target Audience: Engineers and Designers

Teaching Method: Mechanical Engineer with a background on material modeling in FE analysis and nonlinear problems modelization.


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