Duration
2 days

Prerequisites
None

Software used
Ansys Discovery

Benefits
  • Practice-oriented work in Ansys Discovery for structural-mechanical simulations
  • Recognize physics-based relationships intuitively & understand models
  • Master simple to challenging tasks
  • Evaluate results, gain insights & derive accurate measures

Description

Ansys Discovery is the software that offers all possibilities in one interface - from concept sketches to the simulation of complex assemblies. With simple and quick modifications, you can use the "simulation on flipchart" function for joint development rounds in your team and find better overall solutions.
This training focuses on CAD import, geometry processing and simulation of various linear and non-linear FEM tasks. You will become systematically familiar with all facets of application. We will teach how to use the software and provide you with practical tools and tips that you can implement in your daily work. This will help you to go from idea to finished product much faster and give you the confidence to draw the right conclusions from simulation results.

This course offers you a systematic introduction that allows you to benefit from the practical knowledge of our instructors. You will learn which procedures have proven themselves, saving you a lot of time with your applications. We pay particular attention to understanding the quality of the results and deriving meaningful measures.

This training is the simple way to get started with simulation for anyone who wants to try out ideas in a matter of second and wants to understand & adjust the mechanical properties of their products.

The course is didactically well structured. By alternating between presentation and workshop, attention is always maintained. The lively discussions and questions during the seminar were also very instructive for me. Therefore I am very enthusiastic about the CADFEM offering!

The training covers not only the operation of the software, but also many tips and tricks for simulation applications. We as the simulation team will distribute this software throughout the company and we must make ourselves available as contacts for this purpose.

Do you have questions on the training or the eLearning?

When will I receive the final confirmation for my training booking?

Straight after you sign up, an automatic confirmation of receipt will be sent to the email addresses you provided. Once you have successfully verified the data you provided, you will receive your personalized sign-up confirmation, containing further information on course fees, the billing address, etc., by email within two to three working days.  

As soon as the minimum number of attendees has been reached, you will receive a final training confirmation containing further information. If you have booked an on-site training, we recommend that you wait until you have received this final confirmation before booking your travel and accommodation.

If the minimum number of attendees is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the training seven days before it is due to start at the latest. We are happy to inform you on changing your booking to an alternative date. Please note that we accept no liability for hotel or travel bookings that attendees have already made.

When is the sign-up deadline for a training?

Training places will generally be allocated based on the order in which attendees sign up. For this reason, we always recommend booking for your desired date as early as possible.

As long as a coures still has free places, it can be booked.

At what time do the training courses begin and end?

Usually the training courses start at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm of the respective local time. The actual course times will be stated in the booking confirmation. Please note that, depending on the training host, there may be a possible time shift between your and the provider's local time. Therefore all local times are provided with the valid time shift to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). 

Can I test the eLearning offer without obligation?

To get a clear impression of our online learning format, we offer you a trial allowing you access to the starting module of an eLearning course of your choice. No costs, no cancellation period or anything similar. Moreover, with this free test access you can check all the technical requirements for a smooth learning process. You can easily request the free module from any eLearning course.

How much time should I allow for an eLearning course?

Each online course day comprises four eLearning modules. You should ideally allow 90 to 120 minutes of uninterrupted learning time for each module. This will allow you to acquire the knowledge provided by a module and to consolidate it through quiz questions and Ansys exercises. By dividing each module into micro learning units, you can also make good use of smaller time windows, such as on your commute.

For how long can I access the learning content?

Prerequisite for the use of the eLearning courses is the use of a personalized access to the CADFEM learning platform. When purchasing an eLearning course, access to the learning platform is 365 days. As a subscription user, access to the learning platform starts and ends with the start and end of the flat rate. With the start of a further learning product (Learning Subscription, training, eLearning), access to your content is extended by 365 days.
