ANSYS Mechanical is a finite element analysis tool for structural analysis, including linear, nonlinear and dynamic studies.
software creates simulated computer models of structures, electronics,
or machine components to simulate strength, toughness, elasticity,
temperature distribution, electromagnetism, fluid flow, and other
attributes. Ansys is used to determine how a product will function with
different specifications, without building test products or conducting
crash tests. For example, Ansys software may simulate how a bridge will
hold up after years of traffic, how to best process salmon in a cannery
to reduce waste, or how to design a slide that uses less material
without sacrificing safety.
simulations are performed using the Ansys Workbench software. Typically
Ansys users break down larger structures into small components that are
each modeled and tested individually. A user may start by defining the
dimensions of an object, and then adding weight, pressure, temperature
and other physical properties. Finally, the Ansys software simulates and
analyzes movement, fatigue, fractures, fluid flow, temperature
distribution, electromagnetic efficiency, and other effects over time.
