Cracks and similar flaws occur in many components for many different reasons. For example, a structure may experience significant fatigue effects, the material may be inherently defective, cracks may be introduced during the manufacturing stage, or cracks may appear later as a result of environmental conditions. Ansys Mechanical Fracture Mechanics analysis capabilitiesallow you to predict crack criticality and crack growth accurately and efficiently in a virtual environment, giving you the information you need to make better engineering decisions. This course covers the use of Ansys Mechanical to perform Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics and includes several hands-on workshops.
- Completion of training course Ansys Mechanical Getting Started is required.
- A theoretical background in fracture mechanics and finite element analysis is strongly recommended.
Lectures and hands-on workshops give students the knowledge and experience they’ll need to confidently apply what they’ve learned to their own design challenges.
