Simulation Guided Product Development with ANSYS AIM - FEA, CFD and Explicit Dynamics

Simulation Guided Product Development with ANSYS AIM

It is important for everyone involved in the development process to understand and to evaluate the design concept as quickly as possible. ANSYS AIM combines the technology to do this, in a uniform environment, to simulate your product performance, in terms of flow, strength, heat and magnetic characteristics. This seminar is aimed at anyone who wants a modern and accessible introduction to simulation capability, in order to assess their product design, and to characterise its behaviour. Our goal is to provide you with our practical knowledge of how to build your models efficiently, to describe the operating conditions correctly and to interpret the results safely.
