Introduction to ANSA & mETA

ANSA is the leading multidisciplinary pre-processor for FE and CFD applications, with extremely powerful geometry handling and meshing capabilities. This course will give a hands on introduction to ANSA (through exercises with ANSA), focusing on FE applications.

The course will use the latest version of ANSA which includes the new direct functionality for geometry modifications. In addition, we will use the new mesh toolset with direct edit of areas and the one step mesh generation.

Note: The seminar may be extended also for basic CFD meshing when given on your site (contact us for more information).


Prior knowledge: The course is suited for users with no or only a limited experience of the program who wants to get started with using ANSA and learn the basic model generation methods.
