In an expanding range of applications, engineers and designers must be able to accurately predict how complex products will behave in real-world environments where multiple types of coupled physics interact. Multiphysics simulation software from ANSYS allows you to create virtual prototypes of your designs operating under real-world multiphysics conditions. This industry leading software enables you to simulate the interaction between structural mechanics, heat transfer, fluid flow and electromagnetics all within a single, unified engineering simulation environment.

Making the Switch
Optimizing a seemingly simple electrical switch device assembly through simulation saves time and reduces costs.
The ANSYS Workbench environment provides a convenient way to conduct parametric studies for geometry shape and size variations as well as boundary conditions, which can be extended to cover multiphysics simulations within a single working environment. In this example, the effect of a butterfly valve position on the fluid flow rate and pressure drop across the valve is calculated using ANSYS FLUENT software, and the effect of fluid pressure on the valve deformation is determined using ANSYS Structural capabilities.
