Simulation Driven Production Development
ANSYS is a multidisciplinary software solution used to predict how product designs will behave in manufacturing and real-world environments. Its integrated, modular and extensible set of solutions addresses the needs of organizations in a wide range of industries. ANSYS solutions qualify risk, enabling organizations to know if their designs are acceptable or unacceptable - not just that they will function as designed.
Sine 1985, CADFEM is the ANSYS Competence Center FEM in Central Europe, offering the complete range of ANSYS software, all services including user support and seminars.
The ANSYS Mechanical family of products offers a full depth of analysis from concept simulation to advanced analysis; its breadth of simulation capabilities ranges from linear to nonlinear coupled physics analysis. The software provides simulation tools used widely across industry by designers to advanced analysts, providing a full complement of nonlinear and linear elements, material laws ranging from metal to rubber, and the most comprehensive set of solvers available. These tools tackle real-world analysis problems, making product development less costly and more reliable.
Explicit dynamics analyses often deal with extremely short time durations, typically less than a second in the total transient, as well as high deformations, large strains, fracture, or complete material failure. Two products in the ANSYS suite address these dynamics simulations, and the right tool for the job depends highly on the application. ANSYS AUTODYN often is used in defense, homeland security and space industries, whereas ANSYS LS-DYNA has many applications in the metal forming and consumer product industries.
The ANSYS Multiphysics solution provides a comprehensive coupled physics tool combining structural, thermal, CFD, acoustic and electromagnetic simulation capabilities in a single software product. With the ANSYS Multiphysics solution, users can realize the benefits of the core physics of the entire ANSYS simulation suite in one convenient package. Applications include rotating machines (motors and alternators), sensors and actuators, power generators and transformer systems, and micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS).
Fluid Structure Interaction
Fluid structure interaction (FSI) occurs when a fluid interacts with a solid structure, exerting pressure that may cause deformation in the structure and, thus, alter the flow of the fluid itself. FSI analysis is required for many industry applications, such as biomedical (elastic artery modeling for stent design), aerospace (foil flutter) and civil engineering (wind loading of structures). The ANSYS FSI solution provides designers and analysts with the most flexible and advanced coupled structural-fluid physics analysis tool available.
Understanding the motion of liquids and gases is crucial in many branches of engineering. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has become an integral part of the engineering design and analysis environment at many companies that need to predict the performance of new designs or processes before they are manufactured or implemented. CFD solutions from ANSYS, Inc. include ANSYS CFX and FLUENT software. Specialized models for combustion, reacting flows and radiation, rotating machinery, electronics cooling and many other applications, help provide the insight into equipment and processes required to increase production, improve longevity and decrease waste.
Electromagnetic simulations are critical to electrical and electronic product designs across many industries. The ANSYS Electromagnetics solution addresses the analysis needs of two broad, but distinct electromagnetic market segments, high and low frequencies. This engineering software is a virtual prototyping tool that can replace many aspects of electromagnetics physical testing. This reduces product time to market, reduces development costs and allows the user to enhance and optimize the performance of products with minimal physical prototype costs.
Design for Six Sigma
Design for Six Sigma (DFSS), also called Robust Design, designs quality into a product by assessing the variations that a product experiences during manufacture and use. Based on a probabilistic characterization, Design for Six Sigma enables users to quantify the quality of a product by addressing issues such as minimizing warranty costs and assessing the reliability of the product. DFSS goes one step further than a probabilistic characterization by allowing users to optimize design variables to achieve a particular probabilistic result. The ANSYS DesignXplorer solution provides users with the ability to create Robust Designs.
Meshing is an integral part of the CAE analysis process. The mesh influences the accuracy, convergence and speed of the solution. More importantly, the time it takes to create a mesh model is often a significant portion of the time it takes to get results from a CAE solution. From automatic meshing to highly crafted mesh, ANSYS provides the ultimate meshing solution.
