Ansys RBF Morph Structures Getting Started (Self-paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

In this introductory course, you will understand what radial basis function (RBF) mesh morphing is and learn how to install and use Ansys RBF Morph Structures. The course is organized into 7 lessons, and you will be guided step by step in discovering tools and functionalities of the software. Supporting material is provided to clarify and deepen certain key concepts about mesh morphing.


  • Basic knowledge of Ansys Mechanical is required.

Teaching Method

Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge.

Learning Outcome

Following completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Install and independently use RBF Morph Structures.
  • Move through the RBF Morph material.
  • understand and use the basic tools of RBF Morph Structures.
  • Set up a mesh morphing cases independently on a new computational grid.
  • Perform parameter-based shape optimization using RBF mesh morphing and generate Response Surfaces based on shape parameters.
  • Use mesh morphing to project the computational grid onto CAD.
  • Use the shape parameters created by RBF morph in Ansys optiSLang.
  • Perform parameter-free shape optimization using RBF mesh morphing through the Biological Growth Method (BGM).
  • Perform mesh morphing of a model available in Mechanical APDL.
  • Create shape parameters to build a static ROM using Ansys Static ROM Builder.
