Course Agenda | Ansys FEA 201

Use the rigid dynamics explicit solver’s power to evaluate mechanical systems with complicated assemblies of connected rigid elements that are subject to significant overall motion in a reliable and efficient manner.

In addition, apply techniques for analyzing machinery and mechanism systems, including conveyors, drives, indexers, linkages, robotic manipulators, amusement ride components, landing gear assemblies, vehicle suspensions, gear trains, and a multitude of industrial conveyors, drives, and the like.  Finally, discover the relative advantages of explicit and implicit solvers and how to use both methods in a single workflow to achieve the best-of-both-worlds functionality.
