What's New

With the latest release, Thermal Desktop provides speed improvements, feature enhancements, and the ability to preview features under development (Beta features).

Ansys Thermal Desktop
Co-Solver enhancements

New methods have been added to the Co-Solver for stability and speed improvements when connecting Thermal Desktop and Fluent. The Co-Solver user interface can now be used.

Ansys Thermal Desktop
Parallelization of calculations

Boundary condition mapper and contactor calculations now take advantage of multiple CPUs through parallelization to increase the calculation speed.

Ansys Thermal Desktop
TD Block Reference enhancements

References to external models now allow changes to symbol (parameter) names, display of user logic from the referenced model, and postprocessing specific instances in the referenced model.

Ansys Thermal Desktop
Beta feature: Participating media

Solid bodies can absorb solar or infrared energy based on distance traversed by the energy. This can be used to model thick glass optics or semi-opaque fluids.

Ansys Thermal Desktop
Beta feature: Axi-symmetric modeling

Useful for secondary flows within turbomachines and other rotating equipment. 2D objects of rotation are fully compatible with 3D phenomena such as radiation, contact, and so on. Fluid ties connect to axi-symmetric objects.
