More About Mechanical Enterprise

  • A whole range of material models covering everything from hyperelastics, shape memory alloys, soils, concrete, plastic and metallic structures can be accurately modeled; you can even add user-defined material models if needed.
  • Mechanical Enterprise can cover all of your needs for dynamic analysis, including — for linear dynamics — modal, harmonic, spectrum response and random vibration with pre-stress, and advanced solver options for rapid solutions. In the transient domain both implicit and explicit solvers enable you to model time dependent scenarios.
  • The Rigid Body Dynamics capability lets you solve mechanisms rapidly. It also enables you to include Component Mode Synthesis (CMS) parts to add flexibility to models while still accelerating the simulation.

Features of Mechanical Enterprise

Mechanical Enterprise has tools such as ANSYS ACT to customize your workflow, add functionality and accelerate your simulation process, and ANSYS DesignXplorer with built in optimization technology to get to the best answer in the fastest time ever.

Contact detection, mesh generation and solving operations all benefit from additional, ever-increasing core counts. Distributed ANSYS solutions can increase speed in applications that use up to 1,000 cores.

Avoid failure due to repeated cyclic loading. Fatigue analysis can determine the capability of a material to survive the loading cycles experienced during its lifetime.

Analyze the interaction of different physics phenomena to better simulate real-world conditions. Example interactions: Fluid–Structure interaction (one-way) Thermal–Structure interaction (sequential) Other interactions through external data

You can simulate full linear dynamics for modal, harmonic, spectrum response and random vibration, plus transient implicit and explicit effects for impacts and longer, time-dependent simulations, respectively.

ANSYS SpaceClaim is a fast and intuitive 3-D modeling software solution that enables any analyst or engineer to create, edit and repair geometry.

ANSYS DesignXplorer leverages the persistent and automated power of ANSYS Workbench for parametric analyses. It enables you to explore, understand and optimize your design.

Simulate wave, wind and current loads on floating and fixed offshore and marine structures, including spars, FPSOs, semi-submersibles,TLPs, ships, renewable energy systems and breakwater design.

For nonlinear material properties, Mechanical can simulate hyperelasticity for rubber-like materials and rate-dependent plasticity under loading.

Accurate simulation of printed circuit boards (PCBs) requires accounting for the metal traces and dielectric regions. You can automatically map trace metal onto PCB geometry with Mechanical Premium.

Capture the change in stiffness caused by loads applied to structures, ensuring your simulation accounts for effects like stress stiffening, large strain and large deflections. Advanced materials models for geomechanics, metals, hyperelastics and composites combined with user-defined materials provide a
complete solution for nonlinear analysis.

Simulate contacts or joints in assemblies. Model frictional, bonded and other types of contacts with automatic contact generation to accelerate the creation of contact pairs.

Perform steady-state and transient thermal analyses of products, including conduction, convection and radiation effects. Modeling phase-change and temperature-dependent materials ensures an accurate simulation.

ANSYS Simplorer is a powerful platform for modeling, simulating and analyzing virtual system prototypes. Verify and optimize performance of software-controlled, multidomain systems designs.

ANSYS composite simulation software lets you model material definition, first and last ply failure modes, and delamination of layered composites.

Create ACT apps to capture expert knowledge, specialized processes and best practices.

Modal, harmonic, spectrum, random and rotordynamic analyses enable you to understand how natural frequencies, forced vibration, seismic events and transportation vibrations in different environments might affect structures.

Simulate mechanical motion by modeling joints, both perfect and imperfect, and defining stiffness of bushes and bearings for both rigid body and flexible systems.
