Enhancements include:

  • Ansys optiSLang adds flexibility and accessibility with the new packaging model that includes premium and enterprise license options. In addition, optiSLang accelerates innovation through tighter integrations with Ansys Electronics Desktop and Ansys Workbench, allowing engineers to leverage the power of optiSLang directly from the solvers.
  • Ansys Minerva enhances collaboration with custom dashboards that communicate relevant information efficiently among teams and contains a host of sleek, rich UI enhancements that greatly improve engineering productivity.
  • Ansys LS-DYNA and LSTC are now Ansys Cloud-enabled, and a larger portfolio of Ansys products are available directly from the desktop application for HPC batch solves or directly in browser interactive sessions.

Enhancements include:

  • General availability of Ansys RedHawk-SC Electrothermal for comprehensive thermal, electrical and mechanical analysis of 2.5D/3D IC packages.
  • New RedHawk-SC flow for finding and analyzing the activity vectors that give rise to the worst-case timing impact of dynamic IR drop.
  • Advanced Power Diagnostics in RedHawk-SC for thorough debugging of dynamic voltage drop (DVD) issues in even the largest chip designs.
  • Introducing Ansys Totem-SC, Ansys PathFinder-SC and Ansys PowerArtist-SC: These upgraded products are all based on the SeaScape technology and infrastructure that brings big-data elastic compute and native cloud enablement to these workflows.

It also features enhancements to VRXPERIENCE Sound for better sound design: 

  • For users concerned with NVH, Ansys Motion and Ansys VRXPERIENCE Sound integration allows drag-and-drop linking in Workbench between a harmonic acoustics system and the results of a multi-body dynamics analysis within Ansys Mechanical.
  • Direct access to Ansys Fluent, Ansys Mechanical and other Ansys products with the Ansys VRXPERIENCE Sound SAS in the Ansys Unified Installer makes it easy to improve the acoustic performance and sound quality of an e-motor or fan. 
  • Advances in the acoustics solver technology in Ansys LS-DYNA and the transient acoustics workflow in Ansys Mechanical enables engineers to handle glass wool materials in cabin acoustics simulations and improve workflow efficiency.

The integration of products through Ansys Workbench enables users to leverage additional technology to broaden their scope of simulation.

Enhancements include:

  • Ansys Sherlock integration with Ansys LS-DYNA through a single-click automated workflow in Workbench that rapidly creates meshed models for drop-test simulations in LS-DYNA, amongst other analysis types.  
  • Increased exposure of LS-DYNA technologies in Ansys Mechanical including Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) and implicit/explicit solutions that enable workflows such as pre-stress loading and restarts for drop-test simulations.
  • Streamlined multistage analysis with Ansys Mechanical offers differing cyclic symmetry sector counts in the same model, delivering tremendous time saving by reducing the model size and cutting the run time by up to 50X.
