Basic knowledge of Ansys Discovery

Software used
Ansys Discovery

  • New features of Ansys Discovery at a glance
  • Efficient workflows for geometry processing & variant studies
  • Strategy for easy creation of bolted joints
  • Parameterization, topology optimization, automation & reporting


The numerous structural mechanics features that are now available in Ansys Discovery have a clear goal: to provide you with fast, accurate and clear simulation results for the development of your products.

In our training, you will get an overview of interesting innovations for quick and accurate simulations in structural mechanics. Our engineers have pre-selected several particularly interesting features, which they will thoroughly work through with you, both in theory and, above all, in simulation practice. In addition to associative workflows for importing and editing CAD, variant studies, the automatic updating of boundary conditions and the skillful use of history tracking are also a focus, as is the simple creation of bolted connections. Further topics are parameterization, topology optimization, automation & reporting.

Has your daily work routine already given you a strong foundation in working with Ansys Discovery? Then this is the course for you! You will learn you how to optimize your way of working and integrate new workflows into existing processes. This training is aimed at users of Ansys Discovery who want to deepen their knowledge and skills for simulating mechanical tasks at the current technical standard.

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. 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).
