ANSYS tames product complexity and spurs productivity with release 19

ANSYS 19 empowers engineers to develop products from autonomous vehicles to smarter devices to more electric aircraft, at an unprecedented pace.

ANSYS 19 tames complexity by supporting and empowering engineers with tools that improve reliability, performance, speed and ease of use. From support for Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL) to Human Machine Interfaces to radar cross section calculations, ANSYS 19 simplifies user experience across every discipline. Advancements in autonomous technology across industries demand increased functionality and testing within applications. With ANSYS 19, engineers can design and implement complex and state-of-the-art embedded HMIs. From designing cockpit displays for aircraft to infotainment and dashboard displays for automobiles, to control room displays for industrial applications, ANSYS 19 accelerates the development, deployment and testing of safety-critical HMIs. In the electromagnetics suite, ANSYS introduces RCS analysis using HFSS SBR+. This technology is ideal for engineers designing autonomous vehicles, advanced detection systems and stealth technology, these capabilities enable users to digitally explore and optimize more design iterations in less time.

New to the systems suite, ANSYS medinianalyze is now available for functional safety analysis in applications for automotive, aerospace and defense, rail, nuclear and other safety-critical industries. By implementing step-by-step modeling, analysis and verification processes that conform to applicable safety standards, this update simplifies and automates the analysis of failure modes and their coverage by safety mechanisms under a wide range of operating scenarios.

Next-generation automotive, mobile and high-performance computing applications require advanced systems on chips that are bigger, faster and more complex. ANSYS 19 for semiconductors provides comprehensive simulation solutions that simultaneously solve for various design attributes such as power noise, thermal properties, reliability and performance across the spectrum of chip, package and system. The big data simulation platform in ANSYS 19 enables rapid design iterations across multiple operating conditions and its actionable analytics can be used to prioritize design fixes to accelerate time to market.

ANSYS 19 delivers solutions that greatly enhance productivity and create a more seamless workflow at every stage — empowering engineers to accomplish more in shorter timelines. From improvements at the solver and technology level that result in even faster, more powerful product performance to updates that ease time-to-certification, ANSYS 19 improves time to market and engineers' productivity.

In the structures suite, breakthrough updates to the ANSYS separating, morphing, adaptive and re-meshing technology fracture method enhance speeds and automate the remeshing approach. The industry-first material force fracture parameter enables the user to go beyond the traditional linear elastic fracture mechanics assumptions. Advances to the non-linear adaptivity capability in ANSYS 19 empower engineers to conquer non-linear problems in applications like sealing and forming materials.

In the mechanical and electromagnetic suites, ANSYS 19 increases the number of built-in high-performance computing cores from two to four. Combined with faster and more scalable solvers, the additional HPC cores deliver significant computational power and result in additional capacity. To increase flexibility, customers can also use the same ANSYS HPC license to enable all ANSYS products. These changes make licensing more consistent and easier for customers to deploy across their organizations. 

As aerospace and automotive vehicles become more autonomous, the applications used in these industries become more complex, requiring multirate capabilities. With ANSYS 19, the multirate application support in the embedded suite provides a seamless flow to capture and verify multirate application architecture in an application code that is portable, qualifiable and certified — enabling faster times to certification and qualification. 

In the 3-D design suite, ANSYS 19 empowers engineers at every level to explore new design spaces with simulation, regardless of their experience level.
