ANSYS AIM: Integrated Multiphysics Simulation Environment


ANSYS AIM is an integrated solution for 3-D engineering simulation encompassing the breadth of ANSYS physics in a single, modern user environment. AIM extends the value of simulation beyond single engineering disciplines by providing a full array of physics in a unified, immersive user platform that is readily deployable across the organization. Whether a multiphysics simulation includes structures, fluids, thermal properties, or electromagnetics, all aspects of simulation workflow are supported in the single-window design, reducing the training and deployment costs typically associated with fragmented tool chains. Moreover, AIM’s all new simulation process paradigm guides engineers through multiphysics workflows that consider the interaction of physical phenomena, while automating tedious tasks to free-up engineering time and resources.

ANSYS Multiphysics™ simulation solution
allow engineers and designers to create virtual prototypes of their designs operating under real-world multiphysics conditions. As the range of need for simulation expands, companies must be able to accurately predict how complex products will behave in real-world environments — where multiple types of coupled physics interact. Industry-leading software from ANSYS enables engineers and scientists to simulate the interaction between structural mechanics, heat transfer, fluid flow and electromagnetics all within a single, unified engineering simulation environment.



ANSYS Structural Tech Tips

ANSYS StructuralANSYS Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Solutions for
Structural/Mechanical Product Development

The primary ANSYS solution products in the structural area are ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Structural. Using these solutions, you can import geometries, optimize meshing, and set boundary conditions. Following these preprocessing steps, you can perform analyses of strength, vibration, motion and thermal properties of the system, and obtain graphic representations showing how these properties vary across the geometry under the chosen conditions. Based on these results, you may want to modify your design to address any problem areas and run the simulation again. After a few iterations, your results will reveal an optimal design of the part or system under development.


ANSYS Structural Mechanics Solutions

ANSYS - Automotive SuspensionStructural mechanics solutions from ANSYS provide the ability to simulate every structural aspect of a product, including linear static analyses that simply provides stresses or deformations, modal analysis that determines vibration characteristics, through to advanced transient nonlinear phenomena involving dynamic effects and complex behaviors.

All users, from designers to advanced experts, can benefit from ANSYS structural mechanics solutions. The fidelity of the results is achieved through the wide variety of material models available, the quality of the elements library, the robustness of the solution algorithms, and the ability to model every product — from single parts to very complex assemblies with hundreds of components interacting through contacts or relative motions.

ANSYS structural mechanics solutions also offer unparalleled ease of use to help product developers focus on the most important part of the simulation process understanding the results and the impact of design variations on the model.
