ANSYS 2019 R3 Expands Autonomous Vehicles Solution

In the Fluids suite, ANSYS® Fluent™ has a new user experience that enables engineers to complete more Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations in less time and with less training. This release further simplifies the user experience and broadens its use to new applications.

INDAR used ANSYS Fluent's task-based meshing workflow to greatly accelerate their hydroelectric generator simulations. "Preprocessing time has been reduced from six to eight days to four hours and solving time has been slashed by 30%," said Itsaso Auzmendi Murua, thermal research engineer at INDAR.

Additionally, in ANSYS 2019 R3, a new automated workflow speeds the ANSYS Fluent adjoint solver so users can easily find the optimal shape for given operating conditions. Fluent users can also quickly and easily evaluate very complex reduced order models and post-process results directly within Fluent to gain even more insight when exploring design alternatives.

Faster Problem Solving Across Product Portfolio

The ANSYS® Discovery™ family continues to bring simulation upfront in the design process by making powerful analysis accessible to every engineer. In ANSYS 2019 R3, the Discovery family introduces generative design capabilities through the first interactive topology optimization tool with groundbreaking speed and ease-of-use that finds optimal designs in minutes.

"ANSYS Discovery helps us quickly and accurately take the guess work out of designs early in the concept process; allowing us to explore more options through non-traditional engineering techniques, like generative design," said Patrick Wilson, CEO at RaceShapes. "With time savings at the early stages, we're spending more time on the details, and accelerating the process of going from prototype to production."

"ANSYS Discovery has literally cut our design time in half," said Mike Berry, director of engineering, Moffitt Corporation. "With the ability to do rapid design exploration paired with 'real-time' simulation, we're able to leverage Discovery at the beginning of our sales process. Discovery provides the right level of detail for a preliminary design, and quick, iterative communication with our customers."

ANSYS® Multiphysics™ continues to build on previous releases. In ANSYS 2019 R3, ANSYS Multiphysics can now simulate electro-thermal management problems, such as those seen in motors and busbars, to include cases with 3D transient ANSYS Maxwell analyses. Performance and accuracy are also improved — testing on industrial strength cases demonstrates a 15% speedup of system coupling and faster co-simulation than previous releases.

With ANSYS® medini analyze, ANSYS extends its functional safety analysis expertise beyond automotive and aerospace to industrial equipment with a new safety domain profile for industrial applications according to IEC 61508 in medini.

In the Additive suite, ANSYS® Additive™ family improves capabilities across all products to simplify workflows, enable multiple supports and support removal — streamlining the additive manufacturing process.

The new release of GRANTA Materials Data for Simulation provides easy access to additional material property data, now embedded within ANSYS® Electronics Desktop™ as well as ANSYS Mechanical. ANSYS 2019 R3 also introduces ANSYS® GRANTA Selector™, a refreshed and renamed update to CES Selector, the industry-leading materials selector tool for product design or development.
