Introduction to ANSYS nCode DesignLife


This course provides an introduction to the capabilities of ANSYS nCode DesignLife that are included with a standard license. It covers the basics of using ANSYS Mechanical with ANSYS nCode DesignLife to assess structural durability.


  • Completion of training course ANSYS Mechanical Getting Started is required.

  • A background in fatigue theory is recommended, but not required.

Target Audience: All engineers that deal with issues of structural fatigue and durability.

Teaching Method: Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge.

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.
