Ansys Mechanical Advanced Material Modeling

Course Overview

This course covers some of the more advanced material modeling options available in Ansys along with their implementation in Ansys Mechanical.  Topics include Anisotropic Plasticity using Hill Potential, Cast Iron, Microplane, and Shape Memory Alloys.


  • Completion of Ansys Mechanical Getting Started and Ansys Mechanical Basic Structural Nonlinearities is strongly advised.
  • Some knowledge of Mechanical APDL is beneficial but not required.
  • Target Audience: Engineers and Designers

Target Audience

Mechanical Engineer with a background on material modeling in FE analysis and nonlinear problems modelization.

Teaching Method

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

Learning Path


Learning Outcome

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

  • Use models for anisotropic material analysis
  • Model Shape Memory alloys
