Expose new parametric structural loads for multistep analyses (incl. transient). Supported loads include Force, Pressure, Moment, and Displacement.
Evaluate anisotropic material constants for non-homogeneous material which is Lattice structure, Composite (e.g. FRP using short or long fiber), Honeycomb and so on. Template function to create microstructure model is also included in Design Modeler and SpaceClaim
Easily make NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) airfoil geometry models for 3D fluid flow computations
Expose the nonlinear diagnostics (NLDIAG) functionality in Mechanical to identify or display the highly distorted elements
Model radiation fields of antennas and phased arrays without modelling geometry
Allow a direct connection between ANSYS Workbench and OASIS, a powerful design exploration and optimization tool that can accelerate your design process. The plugin allows for simple setup of optimizations with your Workbench models
Expose the MAPDL offshore features in Mechanical
Easy and efficient tool for parametric optimization. Define the task rapidly and find better solutions automatically. SORVI design booster is easy to learn, simple to use, and it automates the exploration for better solutions.
Implement a PID thermostat controller as load object in Mechanical. Suitable for transient thermal analyses needing temperature control
Provide a dialog box with view controls for the Mechanical graphics window. The controls allow for Pan, Zoom and Rotate in a style similar to the controls available in the Mechanical APDL interface
Create design points by sweeping parameter values
Create curves using parametric equations. Any valid Python equation or function can be used to generate parametric curves, with the ability to mark up to 50 independent coefficients as Workbench parameters
