The trusted ANSYS mechanical suite rapidly solves complex structural problems with ease. Confidently predict and optimize how your product will behave with ANSYS advanced physics. Predictability is Paramount Computing the response of a structural system involves analyzing a wide range of physics: stresses, deformations, vibration characteristics, reaction forces and residual strains. To get an accurate answer, simulation must take into account all interactions between the various parts of a product, its working environment (such as thermal conditions), and the effects of other forces such as electromagnetics and fluid dynamics. And capturing materials is critical. All of this complexity must be handled efficiently by advanced solver techniques that reliably capture all subtleties, such as material properties changes, contacts status and erosion of parts. Structural mechanics solutions from ANSYS set the industry standard in engineering, providing you and your team with the ability to simulate every structural aspect of a product using linear and nonlinear static analyses or mechanisms analysis. Our products incorporate extensive dynamic solution capabilities, including modal analysis for calculating natural frequencies and mode shapes, harmonic analysis for determining harmonically time-varying load response, linear and nonlinear transient dynamic analysis, and spectrum analysis for random vibrations. Using the ANSYS® end-to-end solution, you can model any type of geometry, from slender and thin structures to massive parts, using the latest generations of beams, shells and solid finite elements formulations. Nonlinear geometric effects assist in performing large deformations or nonlinear stability analyses. Characterizing material behavior is intuitive through use of our vast library of mathematical material models, no matter what your structure is made of — including composites. Because complex systems are made of multiple parts, ANSYS tools enable you to capture the critical interactions between parts. Whether using contacts, special connections (including springs, dampers and spotwelds) or joints defining the kinematic relationship between bodies, our solutions lead to insight into the most complex interactions. Use of ANSYS composite material models can lead to lightweight and strong products. Our solutions define layered composites and help your R&D team to understand potential failure.
