SMX101 - Introduction to SimXpert FE Workspaces

Horizontal spacer

SMX101 is the introductory course for new SimXpert users. Students will master the basic skills required to use SimXpert in typical MCAE applications. They will be introduced to the Structures, Motion, Thermal, and Crash Workspaces. A brief introduction to building and running templates is also included. SMX101 emphasizes practical skills development through comprehensive, hands-on laboratory sessions. Students will learn to build analysis models using SimXpert, define material properties, create boundary conditions, apply loads, and submit their job for analysis and postprocess results.
