ANSYS Mechanical Basic Structural Nonlinearities - (Also available as Self-paced Learning)


This course provides you the tools to achieve nonlinear simulation from pre-processing, full solution and post-processing. Learn how to monitor the solution and use the appropriate settings to override convergence problems.


  • Completion of Introduction to ANSYS Workbench for Mechanical is strongly advised.

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.

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.
