Accelerate Design Exploration with Ansys optiSLang 

Welcome to the world of Ansys optiSLang, where the boundaries of simulation-driven design exploration and optimization are pushed beyond the conventional limits. optiSLang seamlessly connects with best-in-class Ansys simulation across various physics disciplines. This integration empowers engineers and designers to achieve unprecedented efficiency in their optimization processes and, ultimately, deliver superior products to market.

The Power of optiSLang: Automation and Collaboration

At the core lies optiSLang’s ability to revolutionize the optimization workflow. The main challenges faced by simulation engineers are manual parameter tuning and laborious trial-and-error iterations. Instead, optiSLang employs advanced automation and parametric variation capabilities to optimize designs with minimal effort.

optiSLang leverages the prowess of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques to construct optimal prediction metamodels. These metamodels efficiently explore the design space, unlocking insights that traditional optimization methods may lack. As a result, engineers can make informed decisions faster, leading to more innovative designs and reduced time-to-market.

Let's dive into the exciting episodes of an upcoming webinar series, where we explore how optiSLang collaborates with Ansys simulation in different disciplines:
