What's New

Ansys Material Intelligence for Ansys Electromagnetic Simulation

2022 R1 sees Ansys Materials expand its data and tools offering into the 5G, electronics and electrification technology areas – extending Ansys Material Intelligence to Ansys Electromagnetic Simulation. 

For the first time Ansys Granta MI™ will incorporate Machine Learning capabilities for intelligent additive manufacturing. Optimize the relevant parameters to meet your target criteria to reduce sample manufacture and characterization of additive materials previously done by trial and error. 

  • EMI/EMC, Electric Machine, SI/PI and Thermal engineers using Ansys Electronics Desktop tools can now access Granta MI in their native solvers – with access to a new range of 7,200+ electromagnetic material records. For faster, more accurate and traceable electromagnetic design simulation. 
  • The volume of data for additive manufacturing continues to grow. To harness this trend Machine Learning capabilities have been integrated into Granta MI™ for process parameter optimization, data visualization and training. Bringing value to sparse and noisy additive data. 
  • Assess a material’s environmental impact by using the comprehensive sustainability data in the unique MaterialUniverse™ - updated with the latest ecoinvent data for all engineering materials.  
  • Significant enhancement in our range of polymer data for non-linear material models – now with over 105,000 polymers.

Capabilities

From using the scalable Granta MI solution to manage and bring control to your in-house materials information.  Or, making smarter materials choices using Granta Selector. Our capabilities focus on the needs of Product, Manufacturing and Materials Engineering, Scientists, Simulation Analysts, Process Improvement, and IT:

  • Enabling digital transformation
  • Boosting simulation accuracy
  • Smarter materials choices
  • Fully integrated
  • Faster to market
  • Repeatable additive manufacturing
  • Ensure regulatory compliance
  • Visibility across the product value chain

Establishing a high-quality ‘gold source’ of enterprise-wide materials data is the foundation of digital transformation.

Improve simulation accuracy with access to an unrivalled catalog of materials property data.

Enable your materials experts to make trade-offs to save cost, weight and improve product quality.

Connect your materials data to leading CAD, CAE and PLM solutions, guaranteeing accuracy and consistency.

Design Engineers can reduce design iterations by making better materials decisions early in the conceptual phase.

Future-proof your AM processes by capturing critical property-process relationships.

From executives concerned with corporate liability to engineers making practical materials choices, manufacturing enterprises face restricted substances challenges at every level.

Identify and report on possible restricted substances in your product with the Ansys Granta MI Restricted Substances Module.

Key benefits:

  1. Avoid business risk due to restricted substance regulations (e.g. REACH)
  2. Consider compliance early in design, where change costs least and delivers the biggest impact.
  3. Prevent multi-million-dollar costs associated with expenses, delays or reputational damage.
  4. Base decisions on robust data about the materials and specifications that drive use of restricted substances.
  5. A partnership with Chemwatch to enable users with easy access to difficult to find substances data.

WHITE PAPERS

Ansys Material Intelligence
White Paper: Material Intelligence

The Business Case for Material Intelligence

If your organization makes or designs products, it uses materials. Information about these materials is vital, often with multi-million dollar impact. In other areas of product engineering, digital transformation is already highly embedded – for example, CAE, CAD and CAM are now ‘must haves’ for every manufacturing enterprise. Software technology to manage and effectively apply materials information had lagged behind – but this is changing, rapidly. In this white paper, we explore why this is, with materials information management increasingly established as a core engineering technology. Includes extensive case study and return on investment information.
