More and more engineers are using 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 comprehensive and extended solids modeling, simulation and optimization programs.

Classes go through topics of geometry creation, stress analysis, heat transfer and vibration modes. We will also discuss the generation of finite element meshing.

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.

As we discuss 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 on 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
In the following sections we will focus on the mechanical simulation module. Here you will learn how 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.

Who this course is for:

Mechanical technicians in design area
Basic knowledge
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 this course for?

Mechanical technicians in design area

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
