Introduction to ANSYS Mechanical for Ocean Loading


This course focuses on practical workshops combined with lecture sessions in order to give advice and useful experience for ocean loads application in Mechanical. The aim is to understand the basic workflow to study submerged or semi-submerged slender structures.

This training course describes analyses with ocean loading in the case of slender bodies.

Learning Outcome

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:


  • Setup an ocean environment, add waves, current loads

  • Understand the MAPDL commands used for Ocean Loading analysis

  • Be familiar with the Offshore extension

  • Define a pile structure - soil interaction

  • Use Design Assessment to post process advanced results and combine results



  • Completion of Ansys Mechanical Getting Started course is required.

  • General familiarity with the Workbench Project Page, Engineering Data and the Mechanical Interface is assumed.

  • General familiarity with beams models simulation is required.

Target Audience: Mechanical Engineers, Design Engineers working on offshore structures applications

Teaching Method: Lectures and computer workshops to give you the knowledge and confidence you will need to apply what you have learned to do your own designs.

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.
