Finite Element Analysis using ANSYS

Finite Element Analysis is a numerical method used to analyze engineering problems. It has application in modeling a wide range of systems and simulate their behavior during the operation at different environments. The analysis consists of designing the system, defining the properties of materials and operating conditions so as to retrieve information about system’s response. The method can be used in both the industrial and the academic field during the design phase of a system or as a tool for failure analysis.

ANSYS is one of the most recognized software platforms worldwide and it is widely used as a powerful tool for Finite Element Analysis. The introductory seminar in ANSYS provides the participants with relevant information and skills in order to model systems in the software environment and perform FEA through hands-on practical case studies analysis.   The participants upon successful completion of the seminar will be able to develop and analyze detailed, real-world finite element models using the ANSYS Workbench environment.
