Ansys Motion Getting Started

Course Overview

Learn the skills necessary to model complex systems of interconnected bodies like steering linkages, drivetrains, vehicles, and mechanisms of all kinds while taking advantage of the many productivity and ease-of-use features of the Ansys Mechanical interface. Understand the advantages of including rigid and flexible bodies in the same mechanical system. Efficiently simulate your system’s vibrational response and extract the natural frequencies and mode shapes. Incorporate specialized analysis models to predict the performance of many complex physical systems, including transmissions, tracked vehicles, and full vehicles.


  • Completion of training course Ansys Mechanical Linear and Nonlinear Dynamics is required.

Target Audience:

Mechanical Engineers, including Automotive Engineers, Aerospace Engineers, Heavy Equipment Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, and many related subdisciplines.

Teaching Method:

Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge.
