FEA 202: ANSYS Workbench Mechanical Heat Transfer

$1,320 USD per person

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


  • A technical education and background are recommended but an engineering degree is not required.
  • Completion of the ANSYS Workbench Mechanical Introductory Course recommended.

ANSYS Workbench Mechanical Heat Transfer is a 2-day training course for engineers wishing to use ANSYS Workbench Mechanical to analyze the thermal response of structures and mechanical components to heat transfer effects. The course focuses on performing steady-state, transient, linear and nonlinear thermal analyses.

After completing the course, students should be able to analyze, in ANSYS Mechanical, the thermal responses of structures involving conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer.
