About the content

In this hands-on course, you'll learn how to perform engineering simulations using a powerful tool from Ansys, Inc. This is a problem-based course where you'll learn by doing. The focus will be on understanding what's under the blackbox so as to move beyond garbage-in, garbage-out. You'll practice using a common solution approach to problems involving different physics: structural mechanics, fluid dynamics and heat transfer.

We'll solve textbook examples to understand the fundamental principles of finite-element analysis and computational fluid dynamics. Then we'll apply these principles to simulate real-world examples in the tool including a bolted rocket assembly and a wind turbine rotor.We'll discuss current industry practices with a SpaceX engineer. By working through examples in a leading simulation tool that professionals use, you'll learn to move beyond button pushing and start thinking like an expert.

This course teaches fundamental concepts and tool use in an integrated fashion using the power of online learning. All learners will have access to a free download of Ansys Student.

Join us to discover why simulations have changed how engineering is done and how you can be a part of this revolution.

Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the University of California, Berkeley, are just some of the schools that you have at your fingertips with EdX. Through massive open online courses (MOOCs) from the world's best universities, you can develop your knowledge in literature, math, history, food and nutrition, and more. These online classes are taught by highly-regarded experts in the field. If you take a class on computer science through Harvard, you may be taught by David J. Malan, a senior lecturer on computer science at Harvard University for the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. But there's not just one professor - you have access to the entire teaching staff, allowing you to receive feedback on assignments straight from the experts. Pursue a Verified Certificate to document your achievements and use your coursework for job and school applications, promotions, and more. EdX also works with top universities to conduct research, allowing them to learn more about learning. Using their findings, edX is able to provide students with the best and most effective courses, constantly enhancing the student experience.
