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.


This online course is split into 4 sessions over 4 consecutive days at 2 hours each.

Sessions run between 9:30am  – 11:30am.
