ANSYS Discovery 2023 R1
April 14, 2023
Ansys Discovery features the first simulation-driven design tool combining instant physics simulation, high-fidelity simulation and interactive geometry modeling in a single easy-to-use experience.
Ansys 2023 R1 expands Discovery’s astonishing live physics, innovative user experience, and robust modeling tools, making it a critical piece of the Ansys digital simulation thread and the best place to start simulation for every engineer and analyst. Set up and run simulations in Ansys Discovery for a wide range of industries and applications faster and easier than ever before with new capabilities, performance improvements and dynamic collaboration updates.
Increased Accuracy for Thin Structures
Improved accuracy for Live structural physics increases confidence in fast simulation results while reducing GPU memory requirements by up to 10x.
This highly innovative new feature makes editing any CAD possible for the first time, especially for smooth organic components and parts. Reduce complex “what if” geometry changes from hours or days to seconds.
Simulations are only as valuable as the insights drawn from them, which is why Discovery continues redefining what a simulation user experience should be.
Structural and Modal Analysis
With the interactive nature of Ansys Discovery, engineers can test several design ideas in mere seconds, receiving immediate insight around the structural performance of a design. Expect to quickly observe the different modes of vibration and receive a rapid understanding of resonant frequencies. Ansys Discovery removes barriers that previously prevented engineers from using engineering simulation. Instead of dealing with the difficulty of performing structural analyses on complicated geometry, the abilities of Ansys Discovery allow for near-instant simulation results once loads get established.
Whether you’re addressing internal or external flow, you can explore a variety of fluid wonders. Incorporate porous media into your analysis when applicable. When you’re ready for additional detail and higher accuracy, use the Ansys Fluent solver within the Discovery environment, without changing your model or your workflow.
The speed of the Ansys Discovery topology optimization tool is extremely handy, but the interactivity of the tool for generative design — the first-ever offering of its kind — means engineers can easily evaluate a wide-ranging spectrum of product behaviors to uncover the perfect design solution. Topology optimization capabilities account for manufacturing constraints and can apply to multiple load cases and physics, including modal and structural simulations, giving Discovery additional uses across multiple product designs.
The real-time heat flow and temperature distribution information enables you to test ideas in real time, iterating and ideating along the way to find the best solution for your design needs. Leverage conjugate heat transfer (CHT) to determine fluid and solid temperatures for evaluating fluid and thermal performance of product designs. Solve a wide range of product design challenges with multiphysics simulation capabilities across numerous industry applications.
Quickly observe the impact of antenna locations and receive a rapid understanding of problems. Whether you have a basic CAD model or one with 1000 threaded screws, there’s no need to simplify your CAD geometry. With fast, direct geometry editing powered by Ansys SpaceClaim, adjust the antenna location in real-time and instantly see the impact.
Model Prep for Simulation
Let the power of SpaceClaim’s streamlined workflows reduce model pre-processing time from weeks or days to hours or minutes, all while eliminating the need to outsource CAD modifications. Whether you’re modifying existing geometry or creating simplified representations, SpaceClaim eliminates geometry bottlenecks to let engineers focus on physics. Simulation-driven product development allows parameterizing of any model and includes bidirectional linkage to Ansys Workbench for seamless integration of geometry. This allows for fast, bottleneck-free answers in 3D.
