Add Granta MI to your toolbox for instant materials information

Granta MIFor the first time, engineers can gain instant, accurate access to the Granta materials database within ANSYS Workbench™, speeding up their materials selection and improving their workflows.

In late 2018, ANSYS, Inc. acquired Granta Design, the premier provider of materials information technology. Through the MI:Materials Gateway window within ANSYS Workbench, you can access validated materials information in several categories, including steel, plastics, and aerospace.

If you know which material you’re looking for, you can select it directly. Or you can search with keywords like “aluminum 6061,” and the material’s property datasheets will be shown to you. You can also ask Granta to show you materials with defined specs, like yield strength above or below a certain value. You can then compare and contrast different materials.

New ANSYS Cloud Provides HPC As Easy As It Should Be

ANSYS Cloud - HPC as easy as it should be

In the last few years, engineering challenges have become more complex, demanding more and more computing resources. On-premise hardware and processor capabilities aren’t always enough for companies to perform the rapid, sophisticated product design and analysis they need to do in order to develop their best products. ANSYS Cloud computeDue to internal IT constraints, engineers may have to wait in line for computing resources, or limit the scale and complexity of their simulations.

ANSYS Cloud offers a solution. For the first time, engineers can quickly tap into the power of cloud-based High Performance Computing (HPC) whenever they need it. Current users of ANSYS Mechanical™ and ANSYS Fluent® can submit their project to the cloud, and then monitor it from their desktop, a web browser, or even a mobile device. Because your needs may vary day by day, cloud computing can save you money, providing the computational power only when it’s needed. More freedom to use multiple physics and fine meshes can increase the accuracy of your results, and time-to-market can be accelerated.

ANSYS Motion - a New Dedicated Multibody Dynamics Tool

Our clients working in multibody dynamics and kinematics have an outstanding new simulation tool: ANSYS Motion.

ANSYS Motion can help engineers…

  • Find more accurate boundary conditions during static analyses
  • Solve big deformation problems while incorporating non-linear material properties
  • Perform kinematic analyses of mechanical systems
  • Analyze high-speed rotation problems with complex geometry

Tightly coupled rigid and flexible solvers that are powerful and fast allow engineers to study situations beyond what is possible in ANSYS RBD (Rigid Body Dynamics). Modal flexible, meshed flexible, and rigid parts can be tied together with standard joints and connections so accurate loadings on the components can be calculated.

This standalone solution for multibody dynamics and flexible multibody dynamics uses its own pre- and post-processor and solver. Pre-processing is integrated into ANSYS Mechanical via an ACT extension.

New ASME V&V 40 Standard for Medical Devices Released

The American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME) released the new Verification & Validation (V&V 40) standard for Computational Modeling of Medical Devices on November 15, 2018. This is big news for companies in the biomedical industry, particularly those using simulation to support the design and development of their medical devices.

The ASME V&V 40 standard isn’t intended as step-by-step guide. Instead, it aims to provide a framework for identifying and establishing the risk-informed credibility of a computational model.
