Ansys Discovery Live & Ansys Discovery AIM: New Upgrades in Ansys 2020 R1

Ansys 2020 R1 delivers cutting-edge enhancements for Ansys Discovery Live. This features major changes to the structural solver which helps designers solve a greater number of use cases with improved accuracy, especially for thinner geometries. Discovery Live also introduces a steady-state fluids solver for quickly solving thermal mixing scenarios and parametric studies. Lastly, an upgraded topology optimization capability incorporates manufacturing constraints and can be applied to multiple load cases including modal and structural simulations.

Ansys 2020 R1 also provides state-of-the-art upgrades to Ansys Discovery AIM. This includes Neo-Hookean hyperelasticity to help designers simulate rubber components using a user-friendly guided workflow. Structural materials have also been enhanced to offer orthotropic elasticity, enabling the simulation of composite laminates. Discovery AIM also upgrades its meshing capabilities, with automatic physics-aware meshing for improving shell structures and automatic hexahedral meshing, which both improves mesh automation and solution accuracy. Lastly, beam and shell modeling now support shell mesh expansion and the modeling of truss and cable elements.
