July 2015 OEI Newsletter

Message from the President 

We just finished Q2 of 2015 with great results, again! We had an excellent Q1 this year and now an excellent Q2! Our ANSYS sales are up significantly. This is in accordance with the ANSYS stock performance which is at an all-time high (as of COB June 30). As you may know, ANSYS stock is traded on NASDAQ; ticker symbol ANSS. I start the ANSYS presentations by showing the stock performance since 1996; you can check this out on Yahoo Finance and enter ANSS and click on “max” to show the stock performance. Although the company was founded in 1970, the company was taken public in 1996. The stock performance chart tells a great story about ANSYS, INC.; the company, the people, and the software products we sell. Please let me know if/how we can enhance your simulations needs. Have a great July!

ANSYS Solutions for IoT

By 2020, there will be 26 smart devices for every human being on Earth according to one estimate. Sensors connected to wired or wireless networks will bring intelligence to everyday objects.

This connectivity boom, known as the Internet of Things (IoT), will greatly streamline communications among our electronic devices, improving the way we live, work and play. Smart homes, connected cars and wearable electronics are just some early examples of IoT.

For ANSYS customers, innovating new products for the Internet of Things is nothing new. They have been modeling and creating industry-leading products for over four decades, using predictive physics-based simulation software. ANSYS simulation technologies are speeding the development of IoT devices, networking infrastructure and cloud computing platforms.

I invite you to watch this video to get more insight on ANSYS solutions for IoT.

Parallel Processing Scalability for ANSYS CFD

By Chris Cowan


Parallel scalability refers to a code’s ability to efficiently take advantage of an increasing number of compute cores to solve a model.  The scalability of ANSYS CFD has improved dramatically in recent years for models of all sizes.

Consider a typical industrial-sized Fluent model with 1M cells.  The current ANSYS release R16 can efficiently take advantage of roughly 180 cores to solve the model (at 5,500 cells/core) for a 182x speedup.  In comparison, an older ANSYS release R13 from 2011 solved efficiently on 10 cores (at 100k cells/core) for a maximum 10x speedup.


As a result of solver scalability improvements, ANSYS users can achieve significant time-savings by taking advantage of ongoing advancements in computer hardware power.

Tired of waiting for your computer to crunch through simulations? Last December we introduced our new service called OzenCloud to better serve customers who needed additional compute capacity or needed short term licensing on powerful servers on-demand. OzenCloud offers you ANSYS products of your choice on modern computer platforms when you need it!
For those interested we have made an OzenCloud tutorial video you can watch on our website. If you would like more information please visit our OzenCloud page and give us a call. Complimentary 3 day trials are available for those who qualify.

Injection Molding Simulation 

Do you want better structural strength in your plastic products? Plastics are often thought to have a very uniform structure, but the reality is that injection molding processes tend to yield defects and variances. These variances affect the strength and durability of the final product. To eliminate these, structural analysis paired with injection molding simulation is the key to success.

Here at Ozen Engineering we offer PlanetsX as our premier solution for injection molding simulation. PlanetsX works seamlessly within the ANSYS Workbench environment and allows you to study structural deformations, warp analysis, holding pressures, cooling phases and more. If you are in need of a solution to eliminate your plastic problems please see our PlanetsX page and give us a call. We’re happy to help find the solution for your business!
