Introduction to Hypermesh (1 Day)

Pre-Processing for Finite Element Analysis

Includes an Introduction to HyperView

This is an introductory course for using HyperMesh to create and set up finite element models for analysis. A combination of lectures and exercises will familiarize students to the HyperMesh environment, process, and suite of tools needed to start using HyperMesh in their work.
