Learn geometric modeling applied to simulations in the areas of Structural Analysis (FEA), Fluid Dynamics Analysis (CFD) and understand the basic features of the Ansys SpaceClaim software.

The SpaceClaim software provides users with tools to accelerate the preparation of the geometry for simulation, being capable of removing CAD models, extracting fluid domains, simplifying a model to beam and shell elements, among others. SpaceClaim imports the vast majority of CAD formats from the market.

Level: Basic
Prerequisites: None
Access period: 180 days or 360 days for Free Pass users
Software used: Ansys SpaceClaim

To perform the proposed exercises, we suggest using the free educational license of the Ansys package (Ansys Student). The download and installation can be done at any time directly from the Ansys website.
