Geometry Prep for Structural Simulation

Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started

A structural simulation workflow consists of four major steps: geometry preparation, mesh generation, numerical solution, and analysis of the results. Geometry preparation is the stage where the raw computer-aided design (CAD) geometry is processed and transformed into a meshing-eligible geometry that can properly represent the system physics. Geometry processing includes steps like unnecessary geometrical feature removal, cleanup, domain truncation to represent the necessary region of the system to be modeled, and much more. 

In this course, using the examples of mounting bracket and a lidar assembly, we will learn how to use Ansys Discovery to prepare a geometry for a structural simulation.
