Using the newly released ANSYS 16.2 software, engineers can now create virtual prototypes of complete systems. Part of this is made possible by enhancements to ANSYS Simplorer, a comprehensive platform for multidisciplinary systems modeling. In this new release, Simplorer can now assemble and simulate electrical, electronic, thermo-fluid, mechanical and embedded software components. The methodology offers advanced 3D precision when needed, as well as reduced-order modeling for verifying multi-domain system performance interaction.
ANSYS 16.2 also offers significant advancements in systems engineering through ANSYS AIM, a comprehensive multiphysics simulation environment, which was introduced earlier this year. Among the many new multiphysics and systems capabilities are heat transfer and thermal-stress, gas flows, and structural deformation and stress.
Jim Cashman, ANSYS president and CEO, said, “ANSYS customers are already solving component and sub-system problems using the most advanced software available. But with today’s release of ANSYS 16.2, they expand to the system level. We’re offering engineers the most advanced engineering solution technologies on the market to predict real-world product performance using accurate, fast and reliable simulation. By leveraging these new capabilities, enterprises will gain competitive advantage in a competitive market.”
