Ansys Mechanical Advanced Connections (Self-paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

This course will enable you to achieve and understand simulation analysis with contact, giving you knowledge for preprocessing full solution and post-processing.

Prerequisites

  • Completion of the Ansys Mechanical Basic Structural Nonlinearities course is required.
  • Students need a working knowledge of the procedures for performing a basic nonlinear static structural analysis in the Mechanical Environment.
  • General familiarity with the Workbench Project Page, Engineering Data and the Mechanical Interface is assumed.

Target Audience

Engineers and Designers

Teaching Method

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