Engineering Simulation for the 21st Century



Intro New Features Geometry & Meshing Multiphysics Structural Mechanics Fluid Dynamics




Technology is the lifeblood of ANSYS, Inc., and the basis for everything we offer our customers. For more than 35 years, ANSYS has been the pioneer in the application of finite element methods to solve the engineering design challenges our customers face.


How have we achieved this near 40-year run of groundbreaking achievement in engineering simulation and modeling? Staying true to our vision and strategy has certainly been a major factor. Unlike others, ANSYS has never wavered from its core business of engineering simulation software.


Instrumental to our success are the five principles used to guide the development of our products and technology: unequalled depth, unparalleled breadth, comprehensive multiphysics, engineered scalability, and adaptive architecture. Learn more about our guiding principles.


ISO 9001:2008

With the completion of the Milton Park ISO 9001:2008 certification audit, the unification of ANSYS, FLUENT and CFX quality systems has been completed. ANSYS, Inc. is now operating under a single quality system, which is documented and meets both ASME NQA-1 and ISO 9000 quality standards.


As simulations are becoming critical to our customers' design and innovation and quality processes, and customers come to rely more on software results to make design decisions, the importance of the software quality increases. Thus it is vital that the high quality of ANSYS solutions is acknowledged, and the ISO 9001:2008 certification is testament of ANSYS' excellence.

ANSYS 12.0 New Features


ANSYS 12.0 delivers innovative, dramatic simulation technology advances in every major physics discipline, along with improvements in computing speed and enhancements to enabling technologies such as geometry handling, meshing and post-processing. These advancements alone represent a major step forward on the path forward in Simulation Driven Product Development.


The ANSYS Workbench environment is the glue that binds the simulation process; this has not changed with version 2.0. In ANSYS 12.0, while the core applications may seem familiar, they are bound together via the innovative project page that introduces the concept of the project schematic. This expands on the project page concept. These advancements alone represent a major step forward on the path towards Simulation Driven Product Development. << Learn More>>

Geometry and Meshing


ANSYS has combined rich geometry and meshing techniques with its depth of knowledge and experience, resulting in integrated geometry and meshing solutions that share core libraries with other applications.


At ANSYS 12.0, geometry interfaces have been enhanced to import more information from CAD systems, including new data types such as line bodies for modeling beams, additional attributes such as colors and coordinate systems, and improved support for named selections created within the CAD systems. For pre-processing larger models, release 12.0 includes support for 64-bit operating systems and smart and selective updates of CAD parts. << Learn More>>

ANSYS 12.0 expands the industry-leading comprehensive multiphysics solutions. New features and enhancements are available for solving both direct and sequentially coupled multiphysics problems, and the ANSYS Workbench framework makes performing multiphysics simulations even faster than before.


The integration of the broad array of ANSYS solver technologies has taken a considerable step forward with release 12.0. The ANSYS Workbench environment has been redesigned for an efficient multiphysics workflow by integrating the solver technology into one unified simulation environment. << Learn More>>

Structural Mechanics


The ability to drive the engineering design process in structural applications has taken a significant step forward with the improvements in release 12.0. New features and tools, many integrated into the ANSYS Workbench platform, help reduce overall solution time. Specific improvements focus on elements, materials, contact and solver performance, along with linear, rigid, and flexible dynamics.


The most notable new element in release 12.0 is the four-noded tetrahedron for modeling complex geometries in hyperelastic or forming applications. This reduces the time it takes to develop an analysis from geometry through solution, while maintaining the accuracy of the solution. In regards to materials, Release 12.0 introduces several additions to the wide choice of materials already available. <<Learn More>>

Fluid Dynamics


The ANSYS 12.0 introduces the full integration of its fluids products into ANSYS Workbench together with the capability to manage simulation workflows within the environment. This allows users whether they use ANSYS CFX or ANSYS FLUENT software (or both) to create, connect and re-use systems; perform automated parametric analyses; and seamlessly manage simulations using multiple physics.


The perennial goal of improving accuracy without sacrificing robustness motivated numerous developments, including new discretization options such as the bounded second-order option in ANSYS FLUENT and the iteratively-bounded high-resolution discretization scheme in ANSYS CFX.  Being able to consistently use higher order discretization schemes means that users will see further increases in the accuracy of flow simulations without penalties in robustness. <<Learn More>>
