Accurate Simulation Tools with Proven Results

Ansys has a comprehensive collection of simulation software that's perfect for rotating machinery applications. The solutions can help engineers solve a wide variety of complex problems such as minimizing turbine vibration or optimizing fluid flow for a hydrogenator. These validated tools allow you to quickly optimize designs and bring products to market faster.

Shaking all over

Engineers utilize Ansys tools to minimize turbine vibration and extend product lifetime

Unwanted vibration can be extremely difficult to analyze. If ignored, it can lead to performance issues and may require more system maintenance. For the engineers at Voith Hydro, an unwelcome vibration had the potential to crack the guide vanes in their water turbine. They turned to Ansys multiphysics simulation tools to detect the vibration source and correct the issue.

Pumped

A leading pump manufacturer gains critical design insight using simulation-driven development

Grundfos is a world-renowned pump manufacturer. Previously, the company relied on FEA and CFD for design validation. With the introduction of advanced simulation software, Grundfos completely overhauled their design process. Ansys multiphysics simulation tools allow Grundfos to execute in-depth virtual analysis and bring better products to market quicker. 

Rising Tide Ansys article

Engineering consultants turn to simulation tools to optimize a tidal current power generator

Modern electricity consumption has driven the demand for high-quality renewable energy technology. One novel approach is capturing the kinetic energy that exists within ocean tides. Rather than a trial-and-error method, SeaUrchin turned to Ansys simulation to develop their next iteration. With simulation, they quickly gained insight to where their product could be optimized, and eventually developed a version that harvested four times more energy than previous solutions.
