Ansys FEA 103

Comprehensive Ansys Introductory Training Course

Course Overview:

Suitable for new or occasional Ansys Mechanical users, this course teaches the basics of using Ansys Mechanical to perform finite element analysis (FEA) with the latter half of the training focusing on Ansys Parametric Design Language (APDL). Coursework includes both Mechanical and Mechanical APDL tutorials so students can compare each program’s different methodologies and interfaces.

Who should take this course:

  • New engineers looking to learn how to get started and use Ansys Mechanical with an APDL supplement
  • Engineers who are looking for a refresher and desire to re-learn introductory methods and concepts with an APDL supplement

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.
  • Become competent in:
    • Pre-processing and post-processing common analysis types such as static structural, modal, and steady-state thermal analysis
    • CAD interaction
    • Mesh control
    • Connections
    • Boundary Conditions
    • Multistep analysis
    • Parameters
    • Mechanical APDL fundamentals
