“Ansys EnSight software enables engineers to assemble the most relevant simulation results into composite images that maximize the insights provided to design decision-makers”

Astec Industries is a well-known manufacturer of large-scale asphalt production machinery. They constantly strive for higher quality and more efficient solutions.

Simulation proved to be the best method to quickly evaluate system modifications in a cost-effective manner.  Ansys EnSight produced animations, graphs and explanatory text from large multi-disciplinary datasets. This data allowed the engineers to compare results from the most impactful modifications. The team was able to increase system efficiency and validate their designs based on the analysis and visualization performed with Ansys EnSight.

Key Features

Ansys EnSight enables you to analyze, visualize and communicate data from a variety of physics simulations.

CFD simulations are the core audience for EnSight's interactive, dynamic, and exploratory capabilities and features. Everything from powerful calculator operations, multiple viewports, fast transient post processing to the interactive clips, isosurfaces and streamlines creates an environment in which the user can explore, extract, and learn key insights into the solution quickly and dynamically. Leveraging the many different readers allows the users to integrate data together from multiple sources to help analyze, visualize, and communicate the salient results from the solution set to and understanding of the CFD results.

FEA simulations benefit from being post processed in EnSight with the ability to perform detailed data extracts from a wide range of variable values (including tensor operations). The generic capabilities of EnSight's post processing architecture lend itself well to the wide variety of FEA simulations. High quality rendering, material properties and ray traced renderings can create a much more realistic animation from your structural result solution.

MBD simulations benefit from EnSight's powerful animation capabilities including tracked camera movement, keyframe animations, and integrated graphs in the scene to help convey complex movements in a very powerful manner.

DEM simulations benefit from Ansys EnSight's particle display techniques which allow for very high particle counts to be displayed while maintaining high frame rates. The ability to both color & filter particles based on variable values along with variable based transparency and powerful calculator quantities on particles allows for users to extract out key information, metrics, and visualizations from DEM solutions.

General CAE simulations benefit in EnSight from a single consistent method to visualize results, along with the ability to read in over 50 different types of simulation formats together. Coupled multiphyisics solutions can be post processed together in a single viewport allowing for new insights to be gained from visualizing and analyzing the results together.
