Advanced nonlinear stress simulations and comprehensive linear dynamics
Ansys Mechanical Premium uses the Ansys Mechanical interface to deliver powerful finite element modeling capabilities in a way that you can use to make real structural engineering decisions. Mechanical Premium gives you access to the Ansys Mechanical solver with incredible scalability, wide industry adoption and superb support from a broad base of engineers around the globe. Features include support for:
Finding natural vibration frequencies, responses to harmonic loads and understanding behavior during transportation (random or PSD vibration) or events such as earthquakes (seismic response) gives you the ability to accurately predict how designs will work in dynamic environments. Including pre-loading adds more fidelity and means that self-weighted, bolted assemblies — or even squealing brakes — can be simulated.
Moving beyond linear, elastic materials, you can simulate the behavior of materials as they undergo plastic or even hyperelastic deformation (materials like rubber and neoprene). Nonlinear simulation also takes into account contact and large deflection of parts moving around relative to each other, either with or without friction.
