Overview of Training Courses

We have packed numerous important simulation options that are available at Simcenter into training courses. When it comes to the scope, we have mostly based ourselves on the respective license packages. Choosing the right training course is certainly not easy for you. So, just give us a call to discuss which training is right for you. The following is a structured list of the training courses we offer. If you select a link, the detailed description appears.

3 days


This advanced seminar teaches how to use the NX module Advanced Nonlinear FE Analysis.

Using examples, the approaches to solving complex non-linear problems with the NX Nastran solutions SOL 601,106, SOL 601,129 and SOL 701 are conveyed. This includes detailed explanations of the contact algorithms, the time integration methods and the strategy parameters for creating a complete and converging system. The theoretical approaches are applied and deepened during the training using selected practical examples. Finally, there is a comprehensive list of collected tips and techniques for nonlinear analysis.
