Ansys FEA 101

Ansys Workbench Mechanical Introductory Course

Course Overview:

Ansys Workbench Mechanical Introductory course is suitable for new or occasional Ansys Mechanical users, as well as for students or novices in structural engineering. This 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 to enhance their structural engineering background and analytical abilities.
  • Engineers who have previous experience in Mechanical or similar software’s, but are looking for a refresher, and desire to re-learn introductory methods and concepts relating to finite element analysis.
When you complete the course you will:
  • 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.
  • With this Ansys FEA Training, engineers will become competent 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
