All cars now depend on electronics that must work reliably. When a new power steering module failed under testing, engineers at Integrated Micro-Electronics were faced with spending eight months using trial-and-error to determine the cause and find a workable solution. Instead they used ANSYS structural capabilities including contact analysis, transient thermal analysis, and linear and nonlinear thermomechanical buckling analysis, to develop a reliable module in half the time
To provide effective treatment for brain aneurysms, a pioneering healthcare company has developed a digital twin to help physicians place implant devices during surgery. Incorporating ANSYS structural mechanics solutions, the surgeon can simulate the deployment of the implant and determine its optimal sizing and positioning to decrease the risk of failure and reduce operating times.
It costs hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars to launch a satellite into a geosynchronous orbit where it hovers above a point on earth for observation or communications. Now, World View’s balloon-borne Stratollite vehicles can carry large payloads to altitudes up to 95,000 feet and park them there for weeks or months at a cost orders of magnitude less than a satellite or other comparable technologies. World View engineers saved an estimated eight months and about $600,000 by using ANSYS simulation software to determine the right design before building and testing a prototype.
Microsatellites represent a new opportunity to provide connectivity for the Internet of Things, as well as capture images and data from space, at a relatively low cost — but the challenge is getting them into orbit in a timely and cost-effective manner. By making satellite launches both routine and affordable, startup Vector is opening up the “space race” to a new generation of small and midsized businesses that can deploy entire swarms of tiny satellites. With its risk-taking engineering strategy, Vector is poised to disrupt the satellite industry, one launch at a time.
DENSO Corporation standardizes on ANSYS structural software to expedite global product development.
The Galway energy-efficient car (better known as the Geec) is a battery-powered electric eco-car designed and built by engineering students from National University of Ireland Galway to complete in the Shell Eco-marathon Europe. The team used ANSYS computational fluid dynamics to minimize aerodynamic drag, which accounts for about one-third of all energy consumption in a highly optimized car.
