All Things ANSYS Podcast

A Podcast for ANSYS Users
from the Technical Support Team at PADT

Host of the All Things ANSYS Podcast, Eric Miller. Co-Owner and Principal at PADT

Podcasts have been around long enough for a group of engineers to finally decide this form of communication may stick around. So we are going to give it a try and talk about one of our favorite subjects here at PADT, ANSYS.  Many of us have been using this fantastic suite of Numerical Simulation tools our whole careers.  We sell, support, and train on ANSYS so it is something about which our technical support team has a lot to say.

We will post episodes here on this blog or you can subscribe using all them major services:
