HyperMesh has evolved into the leading premier pre-processor for concept and high fidelity modeling. The advanced geometry and meshing capabilities provide an environment for rapid model generation. The ability to generate high quality mesh quickly is one of HyperMesh’s core competencies.
Industry trends show a migration to modular sub-system design and continued exploration of new materials; HyperMesh has advanced model assembly tools capable of supporting complex sub-system generation and assembly, in addition, modeling of laminate composites is supported by advanced creation, editing and visualization tools.
Design change is made possible via mesh morphing and geometry dimensioning. HyperMesh is a solver neutral environment that also has an extensive API which allows for advanced levels customization.
Ansys develops and markets finite element analysis software used to simulate engineering problems. The software creates simulated computer models of structures, electronics, or machine components to simulate strength, toughness, elasticity, temperature distribution, electromagnetism, fluid flow, and other attributes.
ANSYS is used to determine how a product will function with different specifications, without building test products or conducting crash tests. For example, Ansys software may simulate how a bridge will hold up after years of traffic, how to best process salmon in a cannery to reduce waste, or how to design a slide that uses less material without sacrificing safety.
Most Ansys simulations are performed using the Ansys Workbench software, which is one of the company's main products. Typically Ansys users break down larger structures into small components that are each modeled and tested individually. A user may start by defining the dimensions of an object, and then adding weight, pressure, temperature and other physical properties. Finally, the Ansys software simulates and analyzes movement, fatigue, fractures, fluid flow, temperature distribution, electromagnetic efficiency and other effects over time.
Ansys also develops software for data management and backup, academic research and teaching.
Nastran is a finite element (FE) solver for stress, vibration, buckling, structural failure, heat transfer, acoustics and aeroelasticity analyses. Manufacturers as well as engineering suppliers in aerospace, automotive,
electronics, heavy machinery, medical device, and other industries rely on NX Nastran software for their critical engineering computing needs, so they can produce safe, reliable and optimized designs within increasingly shorter design cycles
Available as a standalone solver or integrated in Simcenter 3D Solutions, NX Nastran is credited with driving millions of dollars out of product development costs because building a computer model and digitally testing performance is cheaper, faster and more effective than the physical prototyping processes it replaces. With increased product quality, companies can also save on potential warranty costs.
