Introduction to Creo Simulate 2.0


Course Code: TRN-3911
Course Length: 5 Days

Screen Shot 2012-12-16 at 12.52.47 AMIn this course, new users will learn how to test, validate, and optimize product designs with the Creo Simulate module. Simulate enables you to simulate structural and thermal loads on product designs. In this course, you will complete comprehensive, hands-on lab exercises that simulate realistic analysis and design optimization activities.

You will also be introduced to advanced topics such as dynamic analyses, combined mechanical and thermal analyses, and Optimization Studies. After completing the course, you will be able to run engineering analyses and optimizations on your product design models., and At the end of each module, you will complete a set of review questions to reinforce critical topics from that module. At the end of the course, you will complete a course assessment in Pro/FICIENCY intended to evaluate your understanding of the course as a whole.
