Completion of the ANSYS Workbench Mechanical Introduction course.


ANSYS Mechanical Structural Nonlinearities is a 2-day training course for engineers that need to perform structural nonlinear analyses using the ANSYS Mechanical. This course is intended for users who have taken the ANSYS Mechanical Introduction course and who are already familiar with the procedures for performing a linear static analysis in ANSYS Mechanical.

After completing the course, students should be able to perform, in ANSYS Mechanical, a nonlinear structural analysis.

Course Topics Include:

  • Structural Nonlinearities
  • Advanced Contact
  • Metal Plasticity
  • Nonlinear Diagnostics
  • Accessing ANSYS Options

Each course chapter is followed by "hands-on" workshops and exercises.

Recommended Follow-on Courses (which is dependent upon the student's interests and applications)

  • Heat Transfer
  • Dynamics
  • Rigid Body Flexible Body Dynamics
  • Using Command Objects
