Date: June 2, 2015


  • To give a rough guideline and list of resources that can be used to learn and become experienced with ANSYS
  • Becoming experienced with ANSYS in general requires experimentation and exploration on the user’s part to gain a better understanding of the software.
  • Prerequisites:
    • ANSYS installed on computer



Customer Registration

(when beginning work on a computer with ANSYS already installed)

  • ANSYS Customer Portal: https://support.ansys.com/portal/site/AnsysCustomerPortal/701-04
    • ANSYS Full Course Videos and Workshops: https://goo.gl/Imtqfh
      • ANSYS Customer Portal has full course videos for learning Fluent, Meshing, CFX, and more.
      • Go to https://goo.gl/BI1yeg to download the files for Introduction to Fluent 16.0, which contains workshops for the Fluent course (the videos themselves do not have a link).
      • It is recommended that you go through Fluent full course (including workshops) à CFX workshops à Meshing full course à Design Modeler workshops
        • CFX workshops will help in practicing concepts from Fluent and becoming familiar with CFD-Post, which is very useful for post-processing data.
        • If time is a constraint, skipping heat-transfer-related lectures and workshops and returning to them when a project does require heat-related data may be more efficient. Airfoil and viscous flow lectures and workshops are helpful for aerodynamic simulations.
        • Knowledge of Design Modeler may be necessary for defeaturing and parameterizing geometry.
      • Search function in the website
        • You can search for a variety of tutorials and questions in the website.
      • ANSYS has an extensive Fluent Tutorials Guide for release 16.0 that contains many tutorials that may be related to the current problem to tackle.
