ANSYS simulation software, with its comprehensive Multiphysics capabilities, provides bundles that offer structural mechanics, explicit dynamics, fluid dynamics and thermal simulation capabilities. These bundles also include ANSYS Workbench, relevant CAD import tools, solid modeling and meshing, and high-performance computing (HPC) capability. Electronics Academic Products: Bundles that offer high-frequency, signal integrity, RF, microwave, millimeter-wave device and other electronic engineering simulation capabilities. These bundles include products such as ANSYS HFSS, ANSYS Q3D Extractor, ANSYS Slwave, ANSYS Maxwell and ANSYS Simplorer Advanced.
ANSYS software is used to simulate and analyze a broad range of scientific, engineering, and design processes and includes many components such as:
- ANSYS Fluent, ANSYS CFX and ANSYS Polyflow for Computational Fluid Dynamics Simulations
- ANSYS Mechanical (and Mechanical APDL) for thermal and structural analysis
- ANSYS HFSS for high-frequency, electromagnetic simulation – antenna design, radar cross sections analysis, etc.
- ANSYS Maxwell for low-frequency, electromagnetic simulation – remote power transfer devices, electric drive simulation, etc.
