Topology optimization and transient CFD for design engineers
ANSYS® AIM® now supports topology optimization to obtain the ideal strength-to-weight ratio of structural bodies and recommend optimal shapes otherwise too complex to envision. This technology gives users several options to refine and fine tune the simulation to obtain the desired results. This release also offers enhanced solution control for magnetics and support for time-dependent fluid flow, heat transfer and particle flow.
ANSYS® SpaceClaim® is now more robust in data handling in ANSYS 18.2. SpaceClaim enhances the transfer of shared topology data for downstream simulation, and greatly speeds up model inspection operations for manufacturing processes like 3-D printing, molding or casting, regardless of model type.
