For some advanced applications, there arises a need to tailor the behavior of the Ansys APDL program to suit individual requirements. The open architecture of Mechanical APDL allows you to write your own subroutines in the C, C++, or Fortran programming languages. Once compiled and/or linked into the Mechanical APDL executable, these User Programmable Features (UPFs), will be available when needed. Element, contact, material behavior, types of loading, and reading or retrieving information from the model database are just of few of the application areas for UPFs.
- Completion of the training course Introduction to Ansys Mechanical APDL is required. This course is intended for users with a strong working knowledge of the Mechanical APDL program, the APDL Command Language, and the Fortran programming language.
Mechanical Engineers, including Automotive Engineers, Materials Engineers, Aerospace Engineers, Industrial Engineers, Structural Engineers, and many other subdisciplines, who have a need to implement their own functionality into the Ansys APDL program.
Lectures and example routines give students the knowledge and confidence they’ll need to apply what they’ve learned.
