Introduction to Ansys ICEM CFD

Course Overview

The purpose of this course is to teach the basic tools and methods for generating meshes with Ansys ICEM CFD Tetra-Prism and HEXA. The course presents best-practice meshing techniques and the tools required to efficiently generate high-quality meshes based on tetrahedral / prismatic and hexahedral elements.

 

Prerequisites

  • Basic knowledge of geometry and meshing principles.

Target Audience:

Engineers and Designers tending to mesh their geometry and prepare it for a Fluid or Mechanical simulation.

Teaching Method:

Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. A training certificate is provided to all attendees who complete the course.
