Introduction to Ansys Meshing for FEA
(Self-paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

This course will be of major benefit to all engineers intending to perform FEA simulations. The basic principles of mesh generation, the workflow and best practices for efficiently creating meshes for Ansys FEA simulations will be presented and practiced.


  • No previous Ansys Meshing experience is required but some background knowledge of the basic principles of FEA is desirable.

Teaching Method

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

Learning Outcome

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

  • Discover the Ansys meshing interface
  • Discover the different meshing methods
  • Define the mesh global settings on all the geometrical entities
  • Define local mesh settings on specific entities How to look to the mesh metrics and statistics
  • How to improve the mesh quality
