Price: 120 euros + VAT for Finnish academics
The fee covers all materials, lunches as well as morning and afternoon coffees.
The seats are filled in the registration order. If a cancellation is received five (5) business days prior to the course, the course fee will be refunded with the exception of a handling fee of 10 €. For no-shows and cancellations after the cut of date no refunds will be made. Registration can be transferred to someone else from the same organization without additional charge.

Payment can be made with electronic invoicing, credit card, or direct bank transfer. Note that for electronic invoicing you need the operator and e-invoicing address (OVT code) of your organization. Please also note that invoice reference is needed for electronic invoicing in your organization, so please have this available when registering.
Additional Information

This course is the foundation for working with structural mechanics simulations in ANSYS Workbench. The goal of the course is to make users familiar with the interface and enable them to perform different types of analyses. Focus is not only on operability, but also on basic understanding of simulation concepts, model creation and results interpretation.

Prior experience of ANSYS Mechanical is not required. The course is aimed at those who have basic knowledge of structural mechanics. Knowledge of the finite element method is recommended. After this course, the students should be able to proceed to more advanced topics independently with the support of ANSYS manual.

Target students for the course are new users and existing users who want to keep themselves up to date of the latest ANSYS technology in structural simulations.

The course is for Finnish academics only.
