Ansys StructuresAnsys Structures

Ansys structural analysis software enables you to solve complex structural engineering problems and make better, faster design decisions. With the finite element analysis (FEA) solvers available in the suite, you can customize and automate solutions for your structural mechanics problems and parameterize them to analyze multiple design scenarios. You can also connect easily to other physics analysis tools for even greater fidelity. Ansys structural analysis software is used across industries to help engineers optimize their product designs and reduce the costs of physical testing.

Structural analysis for all experience levels

From designers and occasional users looking for quick, easy and accurate results, to experts looking to model complex materials, large assemblies and nonlinear behavior, Ansys has you covered. Ansys GRANTA Materials Data for Simulation is a license option providing instant, clickable access to a general library of over 700 materials property data accessed through the Ansys Mechanical interface, eliminating data search time and input errors. Mechanical’s intuitive interface enables engineers of all levels to get answers fast and with confidence. Solve on your local machine or on the cloud. You can even run hundreds of design points using Ansys distributed compute services (DCS).

Advanced capabilities

Simulation of complex materials and material behavior can be achieved using the built-in models, user-defined material models or Material Designer in Mechanical to create representative volume elements (RVEs). Models with very large deformation need not be simplified by switching to explicit solvers unnecessarily. The nonlinear adaptivity (NLAD) capability automatically handles challenging simulations by remeshing the solution as it progresses.

Separating morphing adaptive remeshing technique (SMART) fracture technology has been added to Mechanical for modeling crack growth in structures where fracture is a concern, so complex meshing processes and guesswork can be eliminated.
