ANSYS Mechanical Getting Started - (Also available as Self-paced Learning)

Overview

New to ANSYS Mechanical? This is the place to start. After completing this course you’ll understand the complete end-to-end procedure for conducting basic linear static structural analyses and will be able to apply it to the solution of your own analysis problems. Just as importantly, you’ll learn several techniques to improve the efficiency of your solutions and the fidelity of your results. You’ll also have a firm foundation for studying many advanced analysis techniques in ANSYS Mechanical.

Learning Outcome

  • Carry out the basic end-to-end static structural analysis process in ANSYS Mechanical.

  • Describe several of the considerations that are important in the planning of a useful and appropriate analysis model.

  • Demonstrate a basic understanding of viewing control, entity selection, geometry import, material property definition and assignment, coordinate systems, mesh control, contact regions, simple loads, supports and results display.

  • Appreciate the importance of model validation and several common techniques that may be used to achieve it.

 

Prerequisites

  • A technical education and a background in the fundamentals of finite element analysis are recommended. An engineering degree is not required.

Target Audience: Mechanical Engineers, including Vibrations Engineers, Thermal Engineers, Impact Dynamics Engineers, and most other subdisciplines; Mechanical Design Engineers; Mechanical Designers.

Teaching Method: A major emphasis is placed on teaching by software demonstration and on the development of a solution to a design challenge from start to finish. Students will then have an opportunity to either repeat the instructor’s steps or work on an additional design challenge workshop. The goal is to give students the knowledge and experience they’ll need to confidently apply what they’ve learned to their own design challenges.

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 training@ansys.com for more information.
