Introduction to design course using Ansys workbench

Basic guide to create mechanical simulations within this great finite element analysis program.

More and more engineers use Solid Modelers with the finite element method to solve daily problems of stress states, deformations, heat transfer, fluid flow, electromagnetism, among others. This course presents a collection of classes aimed at the basic management of ANSYS Workbench, one of the most complete and extended modeling, simulation and solids optimization programs.

Classes address issues of geometry creation, stress analysis, heat transfer and vibration modes. We will also discuss the generation of finite element meshes.

The progress of the course is planned to follow the design steps in logical order, so each topic will help us reach increasingly complex analyzes.

While discussing the basics, you will find practical examples that you can run on your own computer to increase your skills. You can advance at your own pace, or even go to topics where you need to reinforce knowledge.

ANSYS Workbench 15.0 has been developed in a framework that allows you to introduce a new way of working with your projects in a schematic way. Here you will learn to use these tools, whether you have worked with previous versions or if you are starting.


In the geometry creation section we will guide you through the process of creating and editing geometries in preparation for analysis in ANSYS Mechanical, covering topics such as:

  • User interface
  • Creation of sketches.
  • Creation of 3D geometries.
  • Import data from other modelers
  • Model with parameters
  • Mechanic

In the following sections we will focus on the mechanical simulation module. Here you will learn to use this module effectively to build a mechanical simulation model, analyze it and interpret the results, covering topics such as:

The analysis process

  • Static structural analysis
  • Vibration Modes Analysis
  • Thermal analysis
  • Case studies with multiple scenarios.

We will always be updating the information for you, so you will have a dynamic course where you can find useful and practical data.

What will you learn

  • Use ANSYS Workbench to interact with the ANSYS family of solvers
  • General User Interface Understanding
  • Understand the procedures for performing static, modal and thermal simulations
  • Use parameters to generate various scenarios

Pre requirements

  • It is recommended to have prior knowledge of finite element analysis but it is not necessary to have an engineering degree
  • It is recommended to have the program installed on your personal computer to be able to follow the classes with your own practices
  • Previous experience in the management of programs with CAD environment
  • Prior knowledge of the fundamental laws of mechanical, structural and thermal design

Who is the course for?

  • engineers
  • Mechanical technicians in design area
