Is thermal management critical to your design?  Are you concerned with the effects of heat on structures?   This is the place to start.  This course will help you develop the skills necessary to predict the thermal response of structures to various heat loads using Ansys Mechanical. You’ll learn complete solution procedures for conduction, natural convection, and radiation heat transfer under both steady-state and time-varying conditions. Lastly, you’ll explore several methods of performing thermal stress analysis.

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

  • Understand and apply the different modes of heat transfer to thermal analysis simulations using Ansys Mechanical.
  • Perform steady state analysis to predict the thermal equilibrium temperatures within a structure.
  • Perform transient analysis to gain in-depth understanding of the temperature fluctuations throughout a representative operating cycle.
  • Accurately simulate the effect of temperature dependent loads and material properties.
  • Model complex interactions among thermal, structural, and/or electrical environments.

Who Should Attend?

Mechanical Engineers, Thermal Engineers, Design Engineers and Designers working with structures whose thermal performance is critical to proper functioning.

Prerequisites

Completion of the Ansys Mechanical Getting Started course is required or significant experience of Ansys Mechanical.
