ANSYS Lunch and Learn (10/12 @ Noon) – Discover ANSYS Multiphysics Simulation

Uncategorized No Comments »

Come and join us on Wednesday, October 12th, 2016 from Noon to 1:30 PM for a FREE LUNCH & LEARN on ANSYS Multiphysics Simulation

ANSYS tools can be used to simulate single physics like Fluid Dynamics or Structural dynamics, but can also be combined to simulate complex Multiphysics processes.

During this Lunch & Learn you will learn about single physics simulations and how multiple physics, as well as their interactions, can be simulated inside a single environment.

ANSYS tools are available to every engineering student at the University of Nevada, Reno

In this workshop, we will discuss:

  • Why, as young engineers, simulation skills are key to boosting your career
  • Free student resources to help with your projects (i.e., free on-demand MOOCs and tutorials)
  • Inspiring simulation examples from students, student teams and innovative companies like SpaceX or HyperloopOne
  • We will showcase: simulations of a complete smart watch, wind turbines, medical applications like an atrioventricular valve, and more!

WhenWednesday, October 12th, 2016 from Noon to 1:30 PM

Where: The University of Nevada, Reno – Harry Reid Engineering Laboratory – HREL 109
