Class 2 - Introduction to Pre/Post Processing - HyperMesh and HyperView


  • 2 days
  • Instructor lead or seminar
  • Theory and hands-on exercises (using HyperWorks or LS-Dyna)

Content and Target Audience:

This course is targeted at those people who will be creating and reviewing finite element models using the HyperWorks environment. This course applies to a wide range of solvers and is only focussed on a solver-neutral pre/post-processing. By the end of the course the student should be able to create FE models in a range of topologies and be able to interpret and effectively present the results.
