ANSYS, Inc. (ANSYS), incorporated on January 12, 1994, develops and markets engineering simulation software and services used by engineers, designers, researchers and students across a spectrum of industries and academia, including aerospace and defense, automotive, industrial equipment, electronics, biomedical, energy, materials and chemical processing, and semiconductors. The Company distributes its ANSYS suite of simulation technologies through a global network of independent resellers and distributors, channel partners and direct sales offices across the world. The Company's product portfolio consists of ANSYS Workbench, Structures, Fluids, Electronics, Multiphysics, Embedded Software, Systems, 3-D Direct Modeling and Academic.
Simulation Platform: ANSYS Workbench
ANSYS Workbench is the framework upon which the Company's suite of engineering simulation technologies is built. With bi-directional computer-aided design (CAD) connectivity, meshing, a project-level update mechanism, pervasive parameter management and integrated optimization tools, the ANSYS Workbench platform delivers productivity, enabling Simulation-Driven Product Development. ANSYS Engineering Knowledge Manager (ANSYS EKM) is a solution for simulation-based process and data management challenges. ANSYS EKM provides solutions and benefits to various levels of an organization, enabling it to address the issues associated with simulation data, including backup and archival, traceability and audit trail, process automation, collaboration and capture of engineering expertise, and intellectual property protection.
The Company's high-performance computing (HPC) product suite enables insight into product performance and improves the productivity of the design process. The HPC product suite delivers cross-physics parallel processing capabilities for the spectrum of the Company's simulation software by supporting structures, fluids, thermal and electronics simulations. HPC product suite allows users to consider multiple design ideas and make decisions early in the design cycle. The Company, through Geometry Interfaces, offers geometry handling solutions for engineering simulation in an integrated environment with direct interfaces to all CAD systems, support of additional readers and translators, and an integrated geometry modeler focused on analysis. Meshing includes creating a mesh that transforms a physical model into a mathematical model. The Company's meshing technology provides a means to balance the requirements by obtaining the right mesh for each simulation in an automated way.
The Company's structures product suite offers simulation tools for product design and optimization that increase productivity and minimize physical prototyping. In addition, these tools have capabilities that cover a range of analysis types, elements, contacts, materials, equation solvers and coupled physics capabilities all targeted toward understanding and solving complex design problems. Structures include Explicit Dynamics and Composites. The Company's explicit dynamics product suite simulates events involving short-duration, large strain, large deformation, fracture, complete material failure or structural problems with complex interactions. The suite is used for simulating physical events that occur in a short period of time. Composites blend two or more materials that possess different properties. The Company's Evolutionary Engineering AG (EVEN) composite analysis and optimization technology defines materials, plies and stacking sequences, and also offers a choice of failure criteria. The Company's composite software provides all functionalities for finite element analysis of layered composites structures.
The Company's fluids product suite enables modeling of fluid flow and other related physical phenomena. Fluid flow analysis capabilities provide all the tools needed to design and optimize new fluids equipment and to troubleshoot already existing installations. The suite contains general-purpose computational fluid dynamics software and specialized products to address specific industry applications.
The Company's electronics product suite provides field simulation software for designing electronic and electromechanical products. The software streamlines the design process and predicts performance of mobile communication and Internet-access devices, broadband networking components and systems, integrated circuits (ICs) and printed circuit boards (PCBs), as well as electromechanical systems, such as automotive components and power electronics equipment. The Company's power analysis and optimization software suite manages the power budget, power delivery integrity and power-induced noise in an electronic design, from initial prototyping to system sign off. These solutions deliver accuracy with correlation to silicon measurement, the capacity to handle an entire electronic system for ease-of-debug and turnaround time, and facilitating cross-domain communications and electronic ecosystem enablement.
The Company's Workbench framework allows engineers and designers to incorporate the compounding effects of multiple physics into a virtual prototype of their design and simulate its operation under real-world conditions. ANSYS multiphysics software enables engineers and scientists to simulate the interactions between structures, heat transfer, fluids and electronics all within a single, unified engineering simulation environment.
The Company's SCADE product suite is a solution for embedded software simulation, code production and automated certification. It has been developed for use in critical systems with dependability requirements, including aerospace, rail transportation, nuclear, industrial applications and automotive. SCADE software supports the development workflow, from requirements analysis and design, through verification, implementation and deployment. SCADE solutions integrate with each other and the rest of the ANSYS product suite, allowing for development optimization and communication among team members.
The Company delivers a system simulation capability that is ideal for the design of automated products. The collaborative environment leverages its multiphysics; multibody dynamics; circuit, and embedded software simulation capabilities, which enables users to simulate the complex interactions between components, circuits and control software within a single environment. These technologies provide a complete view into predicted product performance.
3-D Direct Modeling
The Company's 3-D direct modeling technology provides a CAD-neutral environment to modify and prepare geometry for simulation. This approach allows engineers to reduce the pre-processing step in simulation, and delivers product design insights in the stages of development.
