ANSYS Heat Transfer Courses

301 - ANSYS Mechanical APDL Heat Transfer

302 - ANSYS Workbench Mechanical Heat Transfer


301 - ANSYS Mechanical APDL Heat Transfer

You should attend this course if you analyze the thermal response of structures and components such as internal combustion engines, rocket engines, pressure vessels, heat exchangers, furnaces, etc. You should have a B.S. in engineering or equivalent engineering experience, and should have already attended the Introduction to ANSYS course or have similar ANSYS experience. This two-day course will help you to perform steady-state, transient, linear, and nonlinear thermal analyses using the capabilities available in ANSYS/Mechanical. This class makes use of the traditional ANSYS interface. After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • Analyze the thermal response of structures involving conduction, convection, and radiation.
  • Analyze the thermal response of structures exhibiting special heat transfer phenomena including contact resistance, thermal-stress coupling, and phase change.
  • Utilize surface effect elements, fluid elements, extra nodes, etc. to simplify heat transfer simulations.

302 - ANSYS Workbench Mechanical Heat Transfer

You should attend this course if you analyze the thermal response of structures and components and use the newer ANSYS Workbench Mechanical user interface. You should have a B.S. in engineering or equivalent engineering experience, and should have already attended the 103 - Introduction to ANSYS Workbench Mechanical training class or have similar ANSYS Workbench experience. This two-day course will help you to perform steady-state, transient, linear, and nonlinear thermal analyses using the capabilities available in Workbench Mechanical with an ANSYS Mechanical license. After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the basics of finite element heat transfer techniques
  • Understand how a nonlinear heat transfer analysis is performed
  • Perform steady state as well as transient heat transfer analyses
  • Incorporate conduction, convection, and radiation in a simulation
  • Utilize ANSYS commands for advanced heat transfer features including function boundary conditions
