Structural Scenario Creation Essentials

Introduction to structural and thermal simulation in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and teaches how to solve both linear and nonlinear static problems and basic linear dynamics problems

Course Objective

This course is an introduction to structural and thermal simulation in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. It teaches you how to solve both linear and nonlinear static problems and basic linear dynamics problems.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Linear and nonlinear structural analysis
  • Loads and restraints
  • Modeling contact
  • Static analysis
  • Natural frequency extraction
  • Transient modal dynamics
  • Harmonic response
  • Heat transfer and thermal-stress

The course is divided into lectures and workshops. The course's workshops are integral to the training. They are designed to reinforce concepts presented during the lectures. They are intended to provide users with the experience of running and trouble-shooting actual simulations.

Who should attend

Simulation analysts and engineers who will perform primarily static analysis in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform will benefit from attending this class. For the R2020x release, this course is intended for the following roles:

  • Structural Performance Engineer
  • Structure Functional Analysis Engineer


The following course is required prior to taking this one:

  • The Structural Model Creation Essentials
