Creating a Safe and Sustainable Future for Aviation

As aviation OEMs and suppliers pursue innovation in safe, efficient, and clean flight, they will need reliable ways to explore the possibilities and tell good ideas from bad. From propulsion to passenger safety, simulation enables you to experiment with radical new designs or discover ways small changes can produce dramatic improvements. By throwing open all the doors to invention, simulation reduces costs across the entire product life cycle and accelerates design and development.

Innovative Technology for Sustainable Aviation I Lufthansa Technik uses Ansys to develop AeroSHARK

Studies dating back decades have shown that shark skin has a drag reduction effect in turbulent airflow, but there has been no material durable enough to withstand the loads experienced by aircraft in flight. In addition to radiation, temperature differences from 50 to -50 oC need to be addressed, and with the help of Ansys, Lufthansa Technik was able to modify the turbulence model to take the riblet effect – the shark skin texture – into account.

Designing the Next Generation of Space Missions

Increased commercial activity, featuring reusable launch vehicles and mass-produced small satellites, is increasing risks for all assets operating in low-Earth orbit. Simulation enables you to plan orbits and predict conjunctions so that you can maximize a satellite’s lifespan and keep it safe. ​

Farther from Earth, advancements in research and exploration will enable us to observe and explore the outermost regions of space. Simulation is essential to planning remote missions in the complex environments of space and designing the systems that can achieve them.​

Designing the James Webb Space Telescope with Simulation

For decades, the NASA Hubble Space Telescope has provided awe-inspiring images of distant galaxies, nebulae and stars. However, the JWST is now expected to provide an extraordinary leap in our understanding of the universe. With a primary mirror capable of collecting six times more light than Hubble and longer image wavelengths, JWST will enable scientists to look back in time at the earliest formations of the universe.

Staying Ahead of the Threat

Maintaining a competitive advantage in future war fighting depends on modernizing the production of defense capabilities, which is only possible through digital transformation. The intelligent, synchronized movements of forces require spectrum resilience, while hypersonic weapons demand novel strategic deterrence methods. To stay ahead of adversaries — in these domains and others —capabilities must be delivered faster. Simulation speeds new technology into service and can increase confidence in mission success by predicting real-world performance.

Ansys Advantage: Digital Engineering Takes Flight

Explore digital engineering success stories across the sector - sustanaible aviation, space and defense. The new A&D issue of Ansys Advantage seeks to prove the value of embracing digital engineering, as seen through the stories of organizations that have done so already. Within these pages, you can explore some of the ways in which digital engineering is empowering innovation in autonomous systems, spectrum operations, propulsion systems, light weighting and aerodynamics, and much more.
