ANSYS launched the newest release of its engineering simulation technology suite, ANSYS 14.0. The new release automates several user-intensive operations, allows more complex simulations, and delivers improved simulation speeds, according to the company.
ANSYS 14.0 automatically creates high-quality mesh prior to setting up a simulation in fluid dynamics. The assembly meshing tool extracts fluid volume from CAD assemblies and automatically creates structured Cartesian meshes or unstructured tetrahedral meshes, depending on user goals and preferences. The dedicated ANSYS Composite PrepPost tool provides ease of use for composite structures models.
A new ANSYS Fluent cosimulation link with ANSYS Simplorer allows engineers to analyze battery systems in Simplorer without neglecting nonlinear behavior of the fluid system. The cosimulation delivers high-accuracy results of multi-domain system simulation using a fully integrated set of tools.
ANSYS 14.0 also introduces two-way electromagnetic coupling with stress analysis and the ability to re-simulate the electromagnetic field distribution on the deformed geometry. Applications include electrical machine, magnetic actuator and electric transformer designs in the automotive, aerospace, and power industries, for which accuracy of localized part deformations is important.
For enhanced insight, ANSYS 14.0 features a suite of solver and HPC advancements across the entire range of physics. Smart solver management enhancements " including architecture-aware partitioning " evenly size and efficiently distribute jobs to available compute processors. With ANSYS Mechanical 14.0, users can take advantage of the latest generation of GPU boards as well as minimize the amount of I/O required for post-processing operations.
