ANSYS Motion, now in the Mechanical interface, is a third generation engineering solution based on an advanced multibody dynamics solver. It enables fast and accurate analysis of rigid and flexible bodies and gives accurate evaluation of physical events through the analysis of the mechanical system as a whole.
ANSYS Motion uses four tightly integrated solving schemes: rigid body, flexible body, modal and meshfree EasyFlex. This gives you unparalleled capabilities to analyze systems and mechanisms in any combination you want. Large assemblies with many millions of degrees of freedom can studied with the effects of flexibility and contact included. Standard connections and joints then allow these systems to be connected and loaded.
Being able to perform simulations in ANSYS Motion in the same interface as your regular structural analysis means that one model can be re-used for many purposes resulting in huge time savings. In addition to the basic package ANSYS Motion offers additional toolkits so users working in areas with specific multibody dynamic needs can work faster and more efficiently.
