Engineering Simulation Solutions for the Automotive and Ground Transportation Industries

Growing scrutiny of pollution caused by vehicles, compounded by the rise in oil prices, has increased the emphasis on product innovation in this highly competitive global industry. The most successful companies are differentiating themselves by employing new simulation technologies in the earliest stages of design to reduce development cycles and lower costs.

However, the geometric complexity and advanced physics involved in the modern automobile present some of the most challenging CAE problems faced by engineers today. Market pressures to create innovative products in less time emphasize the need to carry out more advanced simulations, faster than ever before. ANSYS is leading the way with software products that provide fast, accurate solutions in a broad range of physics including structural, thermal, electromagnetics and fluids. We offer a comprehensive set of automated CAD-associative meshing tools fully integrated with advanced physical modeling capabilities enabling you to understand product performance and optimize designs, long before a prototype is ever built.

As the largest provider of Simulation Driven Product Development tools, ANSYS is helping leading companies master the integration of simulation to develop design concepts into top-selling products. Simulation tools from ANSYS are widely used in the automotive, commercial, recreational vehicle, motorsports and construction equipment industries for:
