What is ANSYS

ANSYS is a general purpose software, used to simulate interactions of all disciplines of physics, structural, vibration, fluid dynamics, heat transfer and electromagnetic for engineers.

So ANSYS, which enables to simulate tests or working conditions, enables to test in virtual environment before manufacturing prototypes of products. Furthermore, determining and improving weak points, computing life and foreseeing probable problems are possible by 3D simulations in virtual environment.

ANSYS software with its modular structure as seen in the table below gives an opportunity for taking only needed features. ANSYS can work integrated with other used engineering software on desktop by adding CAD and FEA connection modules.


ANSYS can import CAD data and also enables to build a geometry with its "preprocessing" abilities. Similarly in the same preprocessor, finite element model (a.k.a. mesh) which is required for computation is generated. After defining loadings and carrying out analyses, results can be viewed as numerical and graphical.

ANSYS can carry out advanced engineering analyses quickly, safely and practically by its variety of contact algorithms, time based loading features and nonlinear material models.

ANSYS Workbench is a platform which integrate simulation technologies and parametric CAD systems with unique automation and performance. The power of ANSYS Workbench comes from ANSYS solver algorithms with years of experience. Furthermore, the object of ANSYS Workbench is verification and improving of the product in virtual environment.

ANSYS Workbench, which is written for high level compatibility with especially PC, is more than an interface and anybody who has an ANSYS license can work with ANSYS Workbench. As same as ANSYS interface, capacities of ANSYS Workbench are limited due to possessed license.
