FEA 301: Introduction to ANSYS Explicit STR

$1,320 USD per person

Classroom Sessions: 2 days
Online Sessions: 2-4 days


  • A basic knowledge of dynamics and strength of materials (material modeling) is highly recommended.
  • Knowledge of the physics of transient dynamics events is also recommended.

This 2-day course is designed for new users who want to become proficient with Explicit STR in Workbench. You will focus on learning core-modeling skills in this comprehensive, hands-on course. After completing the course you will be well-prepared to work effectively on a wide range of transient dynamics applications.
