- Program overview
Title: ANSYS Workbench Advanced – hybrid course.
Director: Professor Juan José Benito Muñoz.
Department: Construction & Manufacturing Engineering (UNED University).
Software: ANSYS Mechanical Workbench (licenses are included).
- Eligibility and requirements
There are no specific academic requirements. It is recommended to have mechanical, civil (or similar) engineering background.
This program provides students with professional training in the Finite Element Method (FEM), with a focus on civil/mechanical engineering. The goal of this advanced course is to give students a next level of understanding of the FEM, beyond the linear and static analyses of the other ICAEEC FEM courses and to provide the necessary knowledge to use it, which can then be applied directly at engineering and manufacturing companies, scientific research institutes and other advanced studies.
The objective in this course is to summarize modern and effective finite element procedures for the linear and nonlinear analyses of static and (implicit and explicit) dynamic problems.
The material provided includes the basic finite element formulations employed, the effective implementation of these formulations in ANSYS software, and recommendations on the actual use of the methods in engineering practice (see all the advanced examples included). The course is intended for practicing engineers who want to solve real problems using modern and efficient finite element methods.
With this objective in mind, the advanced course is completely structured into several application and practical chapters that include professional software currently used in the market, such as ANSYS Mechanical.
Ingeciber and UNED, the partners to this course, are determined to invest in the internationalization of students and collaborators and want to offer participants the maximum number of options, such as this course, with the goal of sharing experiences in the world of CAE at a global level.
The online hybrid course is divided into self-paced online learning and face-to-face instruction.
The contents of the self-paced online course are detailed below:
- Introduction to ANSYS Workbench
- Geometry. SpaceClaim
- Meshing. Element Types. Accuracy.
- Boundary Conditions and Loads.
- Results and Validation.
- ANSYS Implicit Dynamics:
- Modal Analysis.
- Harmonic Analysis.
- Response Spectrum Analysis.
- Random Vibration Analysis.
- Transient Analysis.
- ANSYS Explicit Dynamics:
- Introduction to Explicit Dynamics
- Setup and Workflow.
- Introduction to Explicit Dynamics
- Material Models and Mesh.
- ANSYS Workshops:
- Bearing Model.
- SDOF Oscillators.
- Bladed Disk.
- Suspension Bridge.
- Drop Test.
- Cylinder Impact.
- Can Crush.
The online course includes full documentation of software training, video lectures, online discussions and deliverable assignments.
The presential course (up to 5 classes) is intended to solve the questions derived from the online learning and to focus on the approach of engineering projects of the students who will attend to in-person learning at INGECIBER, S.A. or to other facilities appointed by mutual agreement.
The course schedule is variable due to its flexibility on the duration of the online and face-to-face training and it can be discussed between lectures and students.
- Teaching Materials
Attendees will receive the documentation and the corresponding materials for each subject and exercises.
The course uses a virtual classroom as a training facility where study tools can be found and also as the main communication channel with the attendees.
Other tools will also be used, including audiovisual resources as well as other supplementary documentation.
The teaching materials for this subject consist of:
- ANSYS training materials including pdf documentation, video lectures, forum discussions, email and full access to ICAEEC moodle platform for each student.
- Additional training material for the course developed by ICAEEC.
- Software: ANSYS Student (128,000 nodes limit).
- Up to 5 days of face-to-face training. Schedule will be configured by mutual agreement.
The teaching staff will be available using the online platform of the course. The available tools are the phone, online meetings, forum and email. Videos and webinars are available as well to clarify the questions of the students.
- Evaluation and grading criteria
Attendee evaluation will be performed through the practical application exercises (assignments).
Certification will consist of a diploma from ICAEEC & Ingeciber indicating successful completion of the subject by the attendee as well as the grade obtained in the practical application exercises and final quiz.
Tuition fees are €720 (plus taxes) which includes all training material and certificates.
