    The trusted ANSYS mechanical suite rapidlysolves complex structural problems with ease.

    Confdently predict and optimize how your product

    will behave with ANSYS advanced physics.

    Predictability is Paramount

    Computing the response of a structural systeminvolves analyzing a wide range of physics:stresses, deformations, vibration characteristics,reaction forces and residual strains. To get anaccurate answer, simulation must take into

    account all interactions between the variousparts of a product, its working environment(such as thermal conditions), and the eects ofother forces such as electromagnetics and uiddynamics. And capturing materials is critical. Allof this complexity must be handled eciently byadvanced solver techniques that reliably captureall subtleties, such as material properties changes,contacts status and erosion of parts.

    Structural mechanics solutions from ANSYS set theindustry standard in engineering, providing youand your team with the ability to simulate every

    structural aspect of a product using linear andnonlinear static analyses or mechanisms analysis.Our products incorporate extensive dynamicsolution capabilities, including modal analysis forcalculating natural frequencies and mode shapes,harmonic analysis for determining harmonicallytime-varying load response, linear and nonlineartransient dynamic analysis, and spectrum analysisfor random vibrations.

    Using the ANSYS end-to-end solution, you canmodel any type of geometry, from slender andthin structures to massive parts, using the latestgenerations of beams, shells and solid niteelements formulations. Nonlinear geometriceects assist in performing large deformationsor nonlinear stability analyses.

    Characterizing material behavior is intuitivethrough use of our vast library of mathematicalmaterial models, no matter what your structure ismade of including composites.

    Because complex systems are made of multipleparts, ANSYS tools enable you to capture thecritical interactions between parts. Whetherusing contacts, special connections (includingsprings, dampers and spotwelds) or joints deningthe kinematic relationship between bodies, oursolutions lead to insight into the most complex


    Use of ANSYS compositematerial models canlead to lightweight andstrong products. Oursolutions dene layeredcomposites and help yourR&D team to understand

    potential failure.

    ANSYS structural mechanics solutions oer a range of products that help users meet currentrequirements and plan for a seamless upgrade path for future needs. Designers and experts canshare common databases while using dierent product levels.

    Productivity: In-Depth Understandingin the Shortest Possible Time

    Without the right tools, simulating your mostcomplex products can be beyond challenging.After all, structural engineers should focus moreon the physics of the model than on the underlyingmathematics. The mechanical simulation inter-face based on the ANSYS Workbench platformenables users to model all applications, fromvery simple to very complex. The interface cantake weeks out of a CAE process by eliminating

    manual le transfer, results translation andre-analysis time.

    Within this highly productive environment, youcan take advantage of a wide range of veryadvanced technologies. For example, the bidirec-tional link to all major CAD systems removes theneed for model repair and provides automatedmodel updates upon design changes.

    Performance to Solve Large Models Faster

    Current trends in simulation show the use ofincreasingly larger models, no matter the industry.Our structural solution incorporates parallel algo-rithms for a faster computation time: The entiresolution phase runs in parallel, including stiness

    matrix generation, linear equation solving andresults calculations in both shared and distributedmemory processing.

    We also oer unique solutions based on GPUboard utilization. The combination of parallelcomputing and performance via GPU can furtherspeed up your simulations.

    Additional advanced techniques such as compo-nent mode synthesis (CMS), submodeling methodsand proprietary acceleration techniques cancontribute to eciently handling large models.

    All these techniques allow you to increase thenumber of design variations you can compute ina given period, therefore leading to better, moreoptimized products. The end result of an ANSYSsimulation is condence that your product willthrive in the real world.

    The ANSYS smoothing algorithms and control tools allow us

    to ensure the quality of the interpolated data as well as the

    robustness of the mapping procedure. Ultimately, this saves

    time in setting up our simulation models.

    ANSYS state-of-the-art technology empowers you to simulate

    every aspect of your product, from straightforward to complex.

    Robust Nonlinear Analysis

    The Right Material Model

    To understand and accurately characterizematerial behavior, ANSYS provides a vastlibrary of mathematical material models thataid in simulating materials. You can apply these

    constitutive models to metal, rubber, plastic,glass, foam, concrete, biotissue and specialalloys. ANSYS structural tools include modelcapabilities for moisture diusion as well asinitial strain and stress states.

    Interaction between Parts

    Our robust, complete set of contact capabilitiesincludes surfacesurface, linesurface and lineline contact for exible and rigid bodies. Contactbehavior can account for constant or orthotropicfriction as well as sliding behavior; these areapplicable for structural, thermal and multi-

    disciplinary contact applications. Fast, automaticcontact detection backed by powerful algorithmsleads to fast and accurate solving of modelsinvolving contacts.

    Robust Solvers for Complex Problems

    ANSYS structural mechanics solutions oer alarge library of out-of-the box equation solvers.The compilation contains the sparse direct solver,preconditioned conjugate gradient (PCG) iterativesolver, Jacobi conjugate gradient (JCG) solutionand others.

    You can be condent of a robust solution, sinceANSYS uses default settings for both elementsand solver. You can override the default options;however, our many years of ne-tuning haveresulted in an ecient solution to your mostcomplex problems without having to manuallyset required controls and options.

    Creating Your Own Elements or Materials

    Very advanced applications and researchactivities require user-dened materials or a newelement formation. With ANSYS tools, you can

    extend native capabilities through user elements,user materials or user routines to create your ownmodels, such as friction.

    Assemblies requiremodeling contact betweenparts as well as specicinterfaces, such as gaskets

    We use ANSYS tools to calculate stress, stiness, deformation and natural

    frequencies of critical vehicle components and subsystems. An important

    capability is advanced analysis of a variety of nonlinear materials.
