Bois HD customizes the ANSYS platform so their advanced structural, acoustic and fluid simulation tools can be used daily by craftsmen in the French woodworking and construction industries. With these tools, our SME partners are confidently designing more complex structures in half the time it took with more traditional approaches.
Cable protection systems actively guard against temperature changes, mechanical compression and abrasion, chemical damage by fuel or oil, and electromagnetic interference. Schlemmer uses ANSYS structural mechanics simulation to virtually test these systems for bending and crushing to improve product robustness while reducing the number of expensive prototypes required.
BNSF Logistics used ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS DesignModeler to perform stress analysis on a new covered hopper railcar design.
The automotive industry is striving to reduce vehicle weight in order to reduce average vehicle fuel consumption and emissions. KSR International, which produces 14 million brake and clutch pedal modules per year, is a leader in reducing the weight of the components it produces in order to help its customers achieve their fuel economy targets.
Like many RF design firms, Optisys employs ANSYS HFSS, a leading industry software, to perform electromagnetic (EM) simulations. Optisys uses the application to conduct RF simulations on 3D-printed antenna designs and predict their integrated performance. However, the company wanted to reduce the costs associated with running large, concurrent simulations. Before adopting Rescale, Optisys had their ANSYS HFSS and Mechanical licenses installed on local workstations, so that only one person was able to use them at a time at a given computer.
Optisys ultimately decided to use the Rescale ScaleX® platform, running Amazon Web Services (AWS) hardware to run its ANSYS EM simulations. “We did a brief search, and Rescale with AWS was the best out there for running ANSYS on the cloud — absolutely the best,” says Hollenbeck. Rescale’s seamless deployment of its ScaleX platform allows Optisys to efficiently and securely connect to instant and scalable AWS resources via an easy-to-use, web-based workflow specifically tailored to solve engineering simulation problems.
Robopac is a leading designer and manufacturer of stretch wrapping machines, which use stretch film to stabilize products for shipment. The company needed to develop an innovative rotating arm machine that was more durable and less costly than its existing product to be competitive in the industry.
