Today's businesses operate in a highly competitive environment where every company strives to innovate faster while reducing its product development and maintenance costs. Every function within an organization faces tremendous pressure to deliver more with less. Engineering operations are no exception. That’s why the world’s leading companies have adopted the ANSYS for the complexity to deal by using workbench nonlinear — to transform the way they innovate and engineer their next-generation products and maintenance services.

The ANSYS Workbench (workbench non-linear) course is purely meant for non-linear simulation such as geometric, material & contact. Most of the real-world scenarios will be a combination of more than one part/component i.e., assemblies. For example, industrial machinery, bridges, rotating components, engines, consumer goods, cars on road, etc. By taking this course, you shall be able to solve industry-ready models with a combination of one or more non-linearities. Along with various advanced models, mesh, solution options.

ANSYS MAPDL (Classic) is the leading software solution that uses finite element analysis (FEA) for various analyses/simulations using the ANSYS Mechanical interface. It covers an enormous range of applications in the field of mechanical, aerospace, bio-medical, automotive, structural, and much more in 3 phases i.e., pre-processing, solution & post-processing. Ansys Mechanical APDL is also used to model advanced materials, complex environmental loadings, and industry-specific requirements in areas such as offshore hydrodynamics and layered composite materials as well.

This course is recommended for anyone who wishes to perform Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of mechanical parts and has little or no ANSYS Mechanical APDL (MAPDL) software experience. The ANSYS Mechanical APDL workflow, graphical user interface, along with the APDL command syntax, will be introduced to users. The focus will be on linear static structural analyses, although the concepts presented will provide a strong foundation to allow the user to solve other physics, such as thermal analyses, or more complicated analysis procedures with ANSYS MAPDL. After completing the course, attendees shall be able to use the ANSYS Mechanical APDL software efficiently to set up, solve, and post-process linear static analyses.

Please note that for those wishing to learn the Workbench version of ANSYS Mechanical should attend the “Introduction to ANSYS Mechanical” training course instead.
