FEA 102: ANSYS Workbench Structural Nonlinearities Training Course

$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 Mechanical Structural Nonlinearities is a 2-day training course for engineers that need to perform structural nonlinear analyses using ANSYS Mechanical. This course is intended for users who have taken the ANSYS Mechanical Introductory course and those that are already familiar with the procedures for performing a linear static analysis in ANSYS Mechanical.

After completing the course, students should be able to perform a nonlinear structural analysis.
