Simulation driven product development
ANSYS provides engineering analysis software that can create complete virtual prototypes for complex systems and products having electronics, mechanical and embedded software components that are capable of incorporating every physical phenomena existing in the environments of the real world. ANSYS covers different types of engineering simulation ranging from structural analysis, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, heat transfer and implicit and explicit methods.
1. Structural analysis: ANSYS autodyn simulates materials’ response to severe short duration loadings from impact, explosions or high pressure. ANSYS Mechanical is a computer simulation product that provides finite element analysis. It also provides thermal analysis and has coupled physics capabilities of piezoelectric, acoustics, thermal electric and thermal structural analysis.
2. Fluid dynamics: ANSYS fluent CFX, CFD and other such Computational fluid dynamics software that can simulate the flow of fluid in a virtual environment. The fluid dynamics of gas combine engines, aircraft aerodynamics, ship hulls, hydro cyclones, fans, pumps, vacuum cleaners, mixing vessels, HVAC systems etc. all can be simulated.
3. Electronics: ANSYS HFSS and ANSYS Maxwell are finite element analysis software for simulating electro-magnetic fields. ANSYS HFSS simulates full-wave electromagnetic fields incorporating integral equations, finite element and hybrid methods for applications in microwave and RF. ANSYS Maxwell can be used by engineers for designing electromechanical and electromagnetic devices like transformers, motors, sensors and actuators. ANSYS Siwave is for designing the analysis of Electromagnetic interference, power integrity and signal integrity for PCBs and electronic packages.
4. Suits: ANSYS also has packages for multiple tools like ANSYS Workbench and ANSYS Multiphysics.
CADD Centre offers courses for ANSYS Workbench and ANSYS Civil. ANSYS Workbench is used by various industries for the analysis of thermal issues, electromagnetic interference, mechanical failure and signal integrity. Students will get to learn creating environmentally conscious designs that save engineers’ time and money in ANSYS civil training.
