Ansys unveils new 2023 release to amplify product design
The software and service improvements in Ansys 2023 R1 concentrate and amplify the advantages that engineering simulation provides to multidisciplinary engineering and R&D teams.
Ansys 2023 R1 enables organisations to accelerate past complexity and integration challenges to design the next generation of world-changing products by taking advantage of performance improvements, cross-discipline workflow integrations, and innovative capabilities.
“Simulation enables design teams to advance in the right direction by quickly and confidently making decisions that define market leaders,” said Shane Emswiler, vice-president of products at Ansys. “Our latest advancements help engineers magnify their success through greater precision, streamlined workflows, and cloud scalability.”
The Structures product collection delivers new features and capabilities that allow users to perform more predictively accurate, efficient, and customizable simulation analyses. For example, a new capability within Ansys Mechanical enables users to leverage AI/ML to determine the computational spend and time required to run a simulation.
Ansys 2023 R1 also empowers users to run large, high-fidelity simulations more efficiently by overcoming hardware capacity limitations with high-performance computing (HPC) and by employing enhanced solver algorithms that take advantage of GPUs.
The full release of the multi-GPU solver in Ansys Fluent computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software unleashes the power of multiple GPUs for a broad spectrum of applications — substantially reducing solve time and total power consumption. This full release adds support for species transport, non-stiff reacting flows, and enhanced numeric for large eddy simulation (LES).
Ansys Gateway powered by AWS enables developers, designers, and engineers to manage their complete Ansys simulation and computer-aided design engineering (CAD/CAE) projects from anywhere on virtually any device via a web browser. The new release allows design teams to create or resize virtual machines and HPC clusters quickly, while streamlining access for teams via AWS cloud subscriptions and flexible single sign-on features for access to company environments.
Ansys 2023 R1 also builds on the capabilities of materials, simulation process and data management (SPDM), optimisation, and MBSE to improve engineering efficiency by supporting intelligent workflow automation and collaboration. The Ansys Connect product collection boasts user experience improvements, new integrations, and ease-of-use features to connect the latest processes, tools, and data more readily for different engineering teams.
Engineers can boost efficiency faster with ‘one-click’ Ansys optiSLang optimisation of simulation toolchains to perform design studies that enable engineers to quickly explore optimal designs. Those same optimisation algorithms run trade studies for MBSE in Ansys ModelCenter. Fluent users can also use optimisations from optiSLang along with smarter collaboration and data management using Ansys Minerva’s SPDM solution.
In semiconductors, Ansys continues to deliver 3D-IC multiphysics leadership with Ansys RedHawk-SC and RedHawk-SC Electrothermal included in TSMC’s 3Dblox Reference Flow for power integrity, signal integrity, and thermal reliability signoff. A new thermal analysis methodology for RedHawk-SC Electrothermal uses half as much memory so that complex designs can be handled more efficiently. New performance and predictive accuracy improvements are obtained with updated RTL power predictability in Ansys PowerArtist. A 30% reduction in RedHawk-SC’s database size enables engineers to solve complex designs more efficiently, and 2X faster transient simulations in RedHawk-SC speed time to solution.
Ansys Granta features material eco-data and tools that are now available on the cloud, which help optimize material selection for more cost-effective, sustainable products.
In the Ansys Electronics collection, users can accelerate finite-sized antenna array simulations by adapting individual 3D component cells in parallel. This remarkable technology is unmatched in the industry and will empower organisations designing antennas for satellite communications, radar, and aerospace applications.
