ANSYS has launched version 17.1 of its product portfolio. Building upon the 10x improvements in performance and productivity delivered in ANSYS 17.0, engineers can tap into new system-wide simulation capabilities to optimize system performance early on in the design process thanks to enhancements made across ANSYS’ core solution, the company states. The release has updates to physics models, AIM, Workbench and more.
According to a company press release, ANSYS 17.1 provides detailed physics models in combination with embedded software and complex behavioral models of components to perform complete product evaluation early in the design process – enabling organizations to accurately predict how a product will perform in real world conditions.
For AIM, v17.1 has increased customization and automation capabilities, adding multi-step custom templates for repeatable simulation methods. In addition to newly extended structural and fluid flow simulation capabilities, ANSYS AIM now provides product designers with magnetostatics and coupled magnetic-thermal-structural analysis.
ANSYS Workbench includes updates all across the board, for electronics, fluids, mechanical, large fabricated structures and more.
ANSYS 17.1 also now supports thermally aware electromigration analysis, letting users design with FinFET transistor technology.
