Engineering with ANSYS


In this course the potential of FEM simulations in engineering is demonstrated. The participants practice the practical use of different ANSYS software products by means of concrete examples. This includes the use of typical materials and structural components of civil engineering. Furthermore, optimization tasks on components are performed using the parameterization function in ANSYS.
