This course will enable you to achieve and understand simulation analysis with contact, giving you knowledge for preprocessing full solution and post-processing.

Following completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the underlying technology and control the solution algorithms used to implement surface-to-surface contact in Ansys Mechanical.
  • Demonstrate a general understanding of several specialized contact applications, including bolt pretension, gaskets, surface wear, and others.
  • Recognize and correct the most common causes of non-convergence in contact solutions.
  • Appreciate the importance of model validation and several techniques that may be used to achieve it.

Who Should Attend?

Engineers and Designers

Prerequisites

  • Completion of the ANSYS Mechanical Basic Structural Nonlinearities course is required.
  • Students need a working knowledge of the procedures for performing a basic nonlinear static structural analysis in the Mechanical Environment.
