Learn the fundamental skills necessary to unlock the power of nonlinear solutions in Ansys Mechanical. Understand the nonlinear solution algorithm and the end-to-end solution procedure that may be applied to all nonlinear analysis problems. Efficiently simulate the structural response of physical systems with features that are vital for the accurate representation of many complex real-world physical phenomena, including large deflection, surface-to-surface contact, elastic-plastic material models, nonlinear buckling, and others. Utilize sophisticated debugging tools to quickly diagnose nonlinear convergence issues.


  • A technical education and background is recommended but an engineering degree is not required.
  • Completion of the ANSYS Mechanical Introduction course.

Who Should Attend?

Mechanical Engineers, including Automotive Engineers, Materials Engineers, Aerospace Engineers, Industrial Engineers, Structural Engineers, and many other subdisciplines.


2 Days

The course commences at 9:00am and finishes at approximately 5:00pm.

Course Fee

£980, including lunch and refreshments.

Feedback from Previous Attendees

Very well taught course with good content and well paced. Workshops at the end of each module allow learning to be put into practice. Jacobs Ltd

It was a great experience…. …….I strongly recommend it for graduate design engineers. University of Abertay, Dundee

ANSYS Mechanical Introduction to Structural Nonlinearities. ICIST/IST. University of Lisbon

Very knowledgeable and engaging. Excellent use of large notepad to draw and display examples and formulas. JCB Excavators

I am happy with the standard of training the first time I came in 2010, so when i was looking for more advanced ANSYS training, I decided to come back to Wilde. Meritor HVBS

I have done two training courses with Wilde, and both were informative and good fun. Pipeline Engineering Ltd

Very useful! Meggitt Sensing Systems
