In its latest version, ANSYS 10.0 gets a performance upgrade, adds coupled physics technology for fluid structure interaction (FSI), and is backward compatible with version 9.0. The application improves upon the company's Multiphysics technology, said to embody each of the best-in-class technologies in stress and fluid flow analysis. A single geometry is used for both with meshing appropriate to the specific physics required. A high-speed protocol provides the communication necessary to perform dynamic FSI analysis. The new release also includes thermal transients, fully implemented within ANSYS Workbench. According to the company, this enables users to perform very sophisticated time-based simulations while the ANSYS Workbench integration automates many of the model setup and solver tasks. The result is a fast and easy-to-use solution for studying a product’s thermal performance over the expected operating time period. Added features to the Workbench include design tools for rotating machinery and blade design. The BladeModeler is described as an efficient 3-D rotating machinery design tool for bladed components and TurboGrid as a high-quality hexahedral meshing tool for blade design.
