Discovery AIM: Structural Tutorials

  • updated 3 yrs ago

These video tutorials will expand your learning with ANSYS Discovery AIM with content specific to mechanical design.  Structural Tutorials  begins with an introductions to the guided workflow and the the following videos dive deeper into more advanced simulations and control.


1) Structural Simulation: Learn the basics of how to setup, solve and visualize the results of a structural simulation.
