For thousands of years, the construction industry has responded to the issues of its day with innovation after innovation. Today’s challenges are centered around saving energy, minimizing operating costs, and improving safety and occupant comfort. To stay ahead of the competition, the most innovative companies in the construction industry use virtual simulation to understand the impact of their design decisions, ranging from site selection to architectural details to materials to heating and cooling. ANSYS engineering simulation software offers designers, engineers and construction companies the most automated, efficient and cost-effective simulation methods available in the 21st century.
Optimizing a design before any construction begins is the best way to avoid time and cost overruns. Ensuring that individual structural components work properly, designing HVAC equipment and placement, devising smoke management systems to protect building occupants and structures from disaster, modeling airflow for occupant comfort, and analyzing environmental–structural effects are all possible through ANSYS engineering simulation software.
