Information Day: Structural Mechanics - FEA, CFD and Explicit Dynamics

Information Day: Structural Mechanics

The presentations and discussions will be conducted by our partner CADFEM Germany, the FEM Competence Centre for Germany, Switzerland, Austria.
Derek Sweeney, MD of CADFEM Ireland, along with the CADFEM Ireland Team and representatives from ANSYS, will be in attendance to discuss your applications and requirements with you.

You will learn about the use of ANSYS across the entire scope of structural mechanical applications.

If you would like to attend, please book your place now (go to the Next Courses page in the Training Section and tick Register).

Alternatively, please email Barbara at

Attendance is free of charge, but places are limited so please register early.
