Structural mechanics solutions from ANSYS provide the ability to simulate every structural aspect of a product, including linear static analysis that simply provides stresses or deformations, modal analysis that determines vibration characteristics, through to advanced transient nonlinear phenomena involving dynamic effects and complex behaviors.
All users, from designers to advanced experts, can benefit from ANSYS structural mechanics solutions. The fidelity of the results is achieved through the wide variety of material models available, the quality of the elements library, the robustness of the solution algorithms, and the ability to model every product — from single parts to very complex assemblies with hundreds of components interacting through contacts or relative motions.
ANSYS structural mechanics solutions also offer unparalleled ease of use to help product developers focus on the most important part of the simulation process, understanding the results and the impact of design variations on the model.
No matter what the industry, increasingly larger models are required for simulation. Our structural solution incorporates parallel algorithms for faster computation time for these large models.
