This infographic details the benefits of simulation-driven design versus the traditional process of performing manual calculations for design. Simulation-driven design results in more innovation in less time and produces higher quality products.
In this webinar, we explore how the interactive geometry and mesh generation capabilities of Ansys SpaceClaim meshing help to generate structured hexahedral mesh for non-trivial geometries. With its seamless connectivity to Ansys Mechanical and Ansys Fluent, you can reduce the turnaround time for simulations considerably. Hex meshes have better "numerical" efficiency as well as a "computational" efficiency factor.
Using blocking techniques to eliminate defeaturing of the geometry to a large extent
Autoblocking options to get quick hex mesh generation
Targeted capabilities to generate a detailed mesh
Advanced and powerful capabilities to automate repetitive mesh generation tasks
Hex mesh helps in improving productivity as it gives faster convergence with accurate results.
It is easy to control the spacing, inflation ratio and the geometric parameters and to align the normal face elements to the flow lines.
Critical features of the geometry can be captured with hex mesh precisely with inflated shapes.
Using hex mesh, the total cell count can be kept low without compromising the quality of results.
Ansys 2020 R2 improves Ansys Discovery Live simulation speeds — up to 65% — and includes enhancements in topology optimization to support frozen regions, one-sided pull constraints and acceleration and displacement loads. Learn more about these advances, and important updates to Ansys Discovery AIM, including:
A new option for an exponential pressure-penetration relationship for frictionless and frictional contact, which improves solution convergence for large sliding and/or large initial penetration nonlinear contact problems
Mesh optimization to provide more realistic joint behavior without need to manually split surfaces
Physics-aware meshing enhancements to provide more flexibility for defining different mesh size functions for different parts of the model, which can be useful for conjugate heat transfer and shell/solid models
