Ansys Cloud for Ansys Mechanical and Ansys LS-DYNA (Self-paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

This course covers Ansys Cloud for Mechanical and Ansys LS-DYNA. It teaches how to navigate the Cloud Portal and Cloud Forum, install the Cloud utilities, and use all available Cloud workflows. Namely launching a remote solve from Workbench on your desktop, running prep/post and solve on interactive virtual desktop (VDI), and launching a solve through the Command Line Interface (CLI). The last chapter discusses different ways to postprocess results.

Prerequisites
