Montreal, Canada


Software / Version: NX™ 8.0
User Level: Intermediate
Duration: 1 day
Who should attend: Designer Engineers and Analysts

The NX™ Laminate Composites course is a comprehensive presentation of the composite laminates tools integrated in NX™ Advanced Simulation. The course includes laminate simulation processes, draping, failure analysis, optimization, finite element model solution, pre and post-processing, as well as a review of the laminates theory. The hands-on activities and case studies are presented using NX™ Laminate Composites and NX™ Advanced Simulation.


  • Advanced Simulation Processes (TR15020)
  • Completion of Advanced Simulation self-paced courses on Learning Advantage can also be used to prepare for this course.
  • Participant needs a working knowledge of NX™ modeling, basic understanding of structural analysis and laminate composite materials, and familiarity with NX™ Nastran, MSC Nastran, or ANSYS.
