The leading simulation software for development and design.


The leading simulation software for development and design.

The Ansys product family of the technology provider ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS) stands for simulation solutions for almost every challenge in development and design. Ansys makes you independent, because all work steps of a CAE simulation are carried out in one and the same working environment. At the same time, Ansys can be seamlessly connected to other development and PLM tools.

Ansys convinces with powerful solver technologies for structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, electromagnetics, multiphysics and system simulation, but also for temperature fields, optics, materials or acoustics.

Ansys program family

  • Ansys Mechanical: Implicit and explicit structural mechanics, temperature fields
  • Ansys CFD (Fluent and CFX): Fluid mechanics
  • Ansys Maxwell: Electromagnetic fields (low frequency)
  • Ansys HFSS: High frequency electromagnetic phenomena
  • Ansys TwinBuilder: System Simulation
  • Ansys Speos: Optics
  • Ansys Discovery: Model. Explore. Analyze - design-related or design-integrated simulation (see separate section)
