ANSYS 15.0 Improves Best-in-Class Software for Structures, Fluids and Electromagnetics Simulation
PITTSBURGH, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) today announced the availability of its leading engineering simulation solution, ANSYS® 15.0, providing new, unique capabilities and enhancements that offer the most advanced approach to guide and optimize product designs.
ANSYS 15.0 delivers major advancements across the entire portfolio, including structures, fluids and electromagnetics. In addition, this enhanced version enables complete multiphysics workflows for leading simulation practices.
Highlights for structures in this release include giving users greater insight into simulating composites. Enhancements to the fluids portfolio features the capability for studying turbomachinery flow paths with greater fidelity than ever, while in electromagnetics, ANSYS 15.0 offers the most comprehensive electric motor design process.
The release enhances ANSYS' industry-leading pre-processing capabilities, enabling users to quickly and accurately mesh the widest range of model size and complexity regardless of type of physics simulated. ANSYS 15.0 also builds on the company's global leadership in high-performance computing (HPC), speeding up already best-in-class performance by a factor of five.
"ANSYS 15.0 builds upon our four decades of leadership in engineering simulation software," said Walid Abu-Hadba, ANSYS chief product officer. "We've made dramatic upgrades in each of the key physics areas through performance improvements and the introduction of new solver capabilities. We continue to extend our leadership in simulation through such innovations as our adjoint solver, HPC scalability and efficient simulation modeling from the micron to the full system."
Structural Analysis: Advanced Materials Systems Design
The release extends ANSYS' advanced solution for evaluating product performance of composites materials, which are often used to improve fuel efficiency by reducing weight. Simulating composites can require large mathematical solutions. To reduce overall computation time, ANSYS 15.0 facilitates submodeling techniques in the pre-processing workflow so users can create high-fidelity local results while employing a coarser model globally.
ANSYS 15.0 also introduces a new multiphysics approach to composites simulation to optimize wireless design and thermal management. Users define spatially dependent material properties for electromagnetic simulation and then couple those results to the structural analysis.
Other new features in the structural suite include:
Fluid Dynamics: Turbomachinery Flow Path Solutions
Turbomachinery developers are under tremendous pressure to improve efficiency and reliability. ANSYS 15.0 delivers the ideal high-fidelity solution for flow, thermal, stress and dynamics across a broad range of conditions and physical phenomena. Some of the enhancements include:
"With ANSYS CFX moving mesh capabilities, a certain range of geometric variants of the hydroturbine we design could be simulated easier and faster by morphing the computational mesh. This saves us pre-processing time when evaluating different designs because we do not have to fully remesh each design variant," said Alexander Jung of Voith Hydro.
Additional examples of fluids enhancements include:
Electromagnetics: Electric Motor and Drive Design Methodology
"ANSYS 15.0's advanced motor design capabilities are phenomenal," said Dr. Dan Ionel, chief engineer at Regal Beloit. "The combination of magnetic vector hysteresis, NVH analysis and embedded software provides a comprehensive methodology for the design of efficient, reliable and optimized electrical machines working with the electric drive and digital control system."
ANSYS 15.0 offers additional capabilities in the electromagnetics suite that drive high-speed wireless communication design including:
ANSYS delivers pre-processing capabilities in each new release that automate simulation model setup while still providing flexibility to address application-specific requirements through manual methods. Much of this is enabled through the most complete set of meshing technologies, ensuring that users can robustly mesh the widest range of engineering applications. Incorporating the ANSYS Workbench platform, which provides an integrated workflow modeling paradigm across all physics, enables almost any problem to be set up in a single environment for achieving the best application-specific mesh possible.
Extensive setup time can be a deterrent to applying simulation technology and fully realizing its benefits. ANSYS 15.0 includes many solutions for pre-processing automation and robustness, helping users perform simulation more efficiently, follow best practices, and, ultimately, arrive at results and engineering decisions significantly faster. Enhancements provide:
"Thanks to the progress in Fluent meshing technology and workflow, pre-processing for an entire vehicle for an underhood air flow study really became a breeze. Starting from dirty CAD geometries and setting up a list of parameters in a template by the end of the day, you can get a good-quality volume mesh the next morning," said Qin Yang, aerothermal-fluid simulation and analysis engineer of Navistar, Inc.
ANSYS continues the tradition of HPC leadership with this latest release, reaffirming a commitment to software development that leverages the latest hardware computing technologies, no matter the physics discipline. ANSYS 15.0 delivers important new capabilities for HPC job management and remote access to simulation, supporting the trend toward scaled-up data center-based deployment of simulation.
The latest release leverages the power of modern high-performance computing hardware and software technologies to provide solutions for large models in a compressed timeframe:
