Ansys FEA 101

Ansys Workbench Mechanical Introductory Course

Course Overview:

Suitable for new or occasional Ansys Mechanical users, as well as for students or novices in structural engineering, our Ansys Workbench Mechanical Introductory course teaches the basics of using Ansys Mechanical to perform finite element analysis (FEA).

Who should take this course:
  • New engineers looking to get started with Ansys Workbench Mechanical or enhance their structural engineering background and analytical abilities.
  • Engineers with desire to re-learn introductory methods and concepts relating to finite element analysis.
  • Engineers who have previous experience in Mechanical or similar software and are looking for a refresher.
With completion of this Ansys FEA Training, you will:
  • Become proficient in:
    • Pre-processing and post-processing common analysis types such as static structural, modal, and steady-state thermal
    • CAD interaction
    • Mesh control
    • Connections
    • Boundary Conditions
    • Multistep analysis
    • Parameters
  • Receive an official certificate of completion with professional development hours that can qualify for the continuing education requirements upon renewal of a PE license in most states or provinces.
