Mechanical & Thermomechanical
For mechanical and thermomechanical simulation, ANSYS provides a comprehensive solution for performing structural analysis, including ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Structural packages for mechanical reliability and stress analysis. The structural mechanics suite includes a full complement of nonlinear and linear elements as well as a complete set of finite element behavior and material laws. ANSYS Fatigue software can be used to simulate product performance under anticipated cyclic loading conditions over the product's expected lifespan. ANSYS also offers a complete set of implicit and explicit solvers, enabling engineers to simulate mechanical stresses and strains — such as through explicit drop testing — that develop during episodes of shock and vibration.
