January 2020

simulation in the new

Companies are accelerating digital transformation by integrating cutting-edge Ansys technology across product lifecycle processes through new functionalities released in Ansys 2020 R1. From improving product development with Ansys Minerva to running complex simulations with substantially streamlined workflows with Ansys Fluent to optimizing electromagnetic design processes with Ansys HFSS, Ansys 2020 R1 enables companies to pioneer trailblazing innovations and create cost-effective designs.

As simulation impacts virtually every product development decision, users must address considerable scale and complexity challenges of interoperability, data and process management, high-performance computing (HPC) integration, and traceability. Additionally, sophisticated multiphysics simulation and optimization assets must be widely available throughout engineering teams and across product lifecycles. Ansys 2020 R1 addresses this with portfolio-wide upgrades and improvements to Ansys Minerva — enabling customers to connect simulation and optimization to their larger product lifecycle processes.

Minerva now incorporates technologies for significantly improving workflows and enhancing simulation process and data management (SPDM). This includes dashboards that drive improved decision support, dynamic 3D visualization tools for exploring model data, and a system for managing change and ensuring reliability of information. For example, OptiSlang — a technology now owned by Ansys as a result of the recent acquisition of Dynardo — teams with Minerva’s SPDM solutions to help users reduce development time and expedite the evaluation of affordable optimal design alternatives.

Ansys 2020 R1 also delivers upgrades across the portfolio, including structures, fluids, 3D design, electromagnetics, additive manufacturing, materials, optics, cloud computing, semiconductors, systems and embedded software.

Rockwell Automation and Ansys Announce Partnership

Modern Materials Handling, November 2019

Industrial companies now have access to a streamlined, holistic, end-to-end solution for design, automation, production and lifecycle management, thanks to a new strategic partnership between Rockwell Automation and Ansys. The partnership between Rockwell Automation, the world’s largest company dedicated exclusively to industrial automation and information, and Ansys, the industry leader in simulation software, was announced at Rockwell Automation’s 28th annual Automation Fair in Chicago.

Ansys and Rockwell Automation will help customers design simulation-based digital twins of products, processes or manufacturing. Historically, manufacturers would dedicate a significant amount of time and money to develop and test physical product prototypes to arrive at the optimal design. Now customers can design and test through simulation to accelerate development and analysis, improving product quality and reducing testing time (and costs) across their organizations.

Porsche Fully Electric Race Car Targets Formula E Championship Using Ansys Technology

November 2019


The TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team is racing to the finish line of the 2019/2020 ABB FIA Formula E Championship through a new collaboration with Ansys. Porsche Motorsport engineers are using Ansys’ industry-leading system-level simulation solutions to create an advanced electric powertrain that will substantially increase energy efficiency for Porsche’s first-ever fully electric race car — the Porsche 99X Electric.

Accelerating at extreme speeds through demanding urban courses within metropolitan city centers exerts massive stresses on the powertrain of the Porsche 99X Electric. While regulations stipulate a standardized chassis and battery, engineers can customize the powertrain and its subsystems and components to deliver maximum energy efficiency and vehicle performance from the starting line to the finish line.

Ansys system-level solutions deliver a critical competitive edge for the Porsche 99X Electric, enabling Porsche engineers to create the next-generation Porsche E-Performance Powertrain. This helps provide the highest level of energy efficiency for its vital subsystems and components — maximizing the efficiency of the motor and the power electronics to significantly reduce losses.

Ansys, Azure Pair Up for Digital Twin Cloud Offering

HPC Wire, December 2019

Ansys, with its Twin Builder software, has teamed with Microsoft and its Azure public cloud Digital Twins Platform on a joint product strategy to take on the rapidly emerging digital twins market, which Gartner last year called a top 10 technology trend for 2019. The Ansys–Azure offering lets users compile simulations into runtime modules that can execute in a Docker container and be integrated automatically into IoT processing systems.

Dollars and Sense: Your Next Simulation Should Be on the Cloud, December 2019

Your CAD/CAE software is not doing you any favors by providing a million-element model that your workstation cannot handle. Engineers have to spend time “defeaturing” the finite element model so that this doesn’t happen. Or do they? HPC (high-performance computing) may provide an alternative to defeaturing.

Ansys offers two ways to use HPC on the cloud if you don’t want to buy your own hardware. From within several core Ansys applications, you pick Ansys’ own HPC service, the Ansys Cloud, on which to run the solution. The Ansys user can select small, medium, large and extra-large cloud-based server configurations that correspond to 8, 16, 32 and 128 cores, respectively.

Or, users can pick one of more than 10 Ansys cloud hosting partners. Ansys has qualified the partners, who have developed their own simulation environment that is compliant with the Ansys platform.

Using Cloud Computing for Engineering Simulation

Automotive Testing Technology International, December 2019

Peerless Research Group conducted a cloud-enabled simulation study for Ansys and discovered that 37% of respondents are either using the cloud for engineering simulation or are planning to use it in 2020. The benefits cited included the ability to scale quickly and reduce costs. However, according to the survey, the top three engineering benefits are increasing the speed of product development, improving engineering productivity and accelerating innovation.

Cloud-Based Engineering Is Poised for Takeoff

The Next Platform, December 2019

The benefits of the cloud’s pay-as-you-go model is drawing in more high-performance computing users with each passing year. One segment that has been somewhat underrepresented is engineering, which increasingly relies on HPC-powered digital simulations for product design and development. A recent survey of engineers conducted by Peerless Research Group, on behalf of Digital Engineering magazine and Ansys, suggests that cloud computing is poised for more rapid adoption.

For those already using the cloud on these workloads, 63% were using an on-premise private cloud, which, depending on how respondents interpreted that category, may be nothing more than a shared in-house cluster. The remainder were split almost evenly between those using the public cloud (35%) and those using an ISV-managed SaaS solution, like the Ansys Cloud (32%).
