Introduction to ANSYS

Sector :  Design & Construction

Training duration : 5 days

Training site : WAN - Département Formations techniques (Gosselies)

Contact : 071/34 81 80 –

The training courses that will be organised in this area will enable the acquisition of skills with regard to IT tools used within companies in the aeronautics and space sector.

These include training on the following tools:

  • Catia V5 and V6 ;
  • PLM 2.0 Environment ;
  • ANSYS ;
  • SAMCEF ;
  • Software products concerning the field of fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, aerothermics,…

Concerned area

Travailler au sein d’un bureau de calcul du secteur mécanique ou aéronautique en tant que spécialiste du dimensionnement de produits aéronautiques.


To acquire the knowledge necessary for an autonomous use of the ANSYS software with the interest of developing the critical mind of the participants with regard to the results of numerical simulations.


This course is intended for engineers in calculation and/or research offices who have the theoretical bases of finite elements and who wish to be initiated to the practice of ANSYS.

Knowledge of the finite element method
