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.

Fiber composite materials offer very high strength despite their low weight. For this reason, the number of applications is growing steadily. The costs of prototype construction and the number of tests can be kept low if the components and assemblies are analyzed with Simcenter 3D.

In this seminar, the calculation engineer is provided with the necessary knowledge to design products made of composite materials. Strength calculation with static and dynamic loads are among the possibilities as well as thermo-elastic and acoustic simulations.
