SimXpert Training Course Detail

Course Title: (SMX101) Seminar Class:

Introduction to MSC SimXpert

SMX101 is the introductory course for new MSC.SimXpert users. Students will master the basic skills
required to use MSC.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 MSC.SimXpert, define material properties,
create boundary conditions, apply loads, and submit their job for analysis and postprocess results.
