Structural Simulation Essentials

This course is an introduction to structural simulation on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform using the Structural Scenario Creation or Mechanical Scenario Creation app. The basics of Finite Element Modeling with the Structural Model Creation app and post processing with the Physics Results Explorer app are included to provide an end-to-end view of the simulation process. You can use geometry imported/created on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform or designed with SOLIDWORKS.
