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 training is the simple way to get started with simulation for anyone who

  • wants to try out ideas in a matter of seconds.
  • wants to understand & adjust the mechanical properties of their products.
  • values accurate results.

Better than simple web tutorials: 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.

Do you have questions on the training?

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 on how to get to the venue. 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 help you change 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).
