PTC defines digital transformation (DX) as a broad business strategy, applicable across all industries, to solve traditional business challenges and create new opportunities through the use of technology. Introducing simulation early in the design process should be part of any discrete manufacturer’s digital transformation efforts. With simulation-led design, engineers can explore different designs and understand product performance during the concept and early design phases. Compared to the traditional iterative method of beginning with a model, simulating it and then going back to refine the model, using Ansys software for simulation-led design considerably shortens the time from concept to completion.
Analyze, visualize and communicate your simulation data with EnSight. Engineers use this powerful general purpose post-processing tool to gain new design insights and then clearly, effectively sell their recommendations. Flexible EnSight can read and visualize data from most simulation tools - ANSYS and non-ANSYS.
From automobiles to high-speed semiconductors, thermal management concerns can often lead to wasted energy, reduced performance or premature device failure. This results in increased energy costs, warranty issues and additional design time that can reduce your product’s competitive advantage. Simulation can help your engineering team look deeper into thermal design issues to see where heat is being generated and how it might be impacting surrounding materials and components. Simulation enables your engineers to evaluate more options more thoroughly than traditional prototype-based design and development methods. They can confidently determine if cooling or additional heating is needed and virtually explore ways to optimize designs to meet thermal management project goals all before building a physical prototype. ANSYS thermal simulation tools provide the wide array of physical models and integration between different physical domains that you need to get thermal management right.
Cavitation is the formation of vapor bubbles within a liquid when flow dynamics cause the local static pressure to drop below the vapor pressure. The bubbles usually last a short time, collapsing when they encounter higher pressure. Cavitation can cause noise and vibration, structural wear and damage, leading to reduced performance. It is a common problem in pumps (especially centrifugal or positive displacement pumps), compressors, hydraulic turbines, propellers, fuel injectors and other fluid devices subjected to high variations in pressure..
