ANSYS 14 Release HighlightsANSYS 14.0 provides a great number of new and advanced features that deliver solutions for customers to amplify engineering, simulate their most complex engineered products, and drive innovation with high-performance computing (HPC). The many new features in ANSYS 14.0 deliver additional physics depth and breadth that can be scaled to meet the changing needs of customers. The advances have been developed with guidance from our most innovative customers, delivering a comprehensive solution for Simulation Driven Product Development™.
Workflow Performance & UsabilitySimulating a single operating condition provides performance information, but engineers gain more design insight by simulating the entire performance envelope. ANSYS Workbench provides a framework for design exploration and optimization by enabling parametric modeling of geometric configurations, mesh controls, material properties, and operating conditions, leading to an automated simulation process. ANSYS 14.0 allows design point updates to be submitted for simultaneous execution via the remote solve manager (RSM), including cluster computing environments.
Geometry Modeling & Interoperability for SimulationModeling operations in ANSYS DesignModeler now directly accept geometry entities (like faces, edges and vertices), in addition to supporting named selections and sketches. In ANSYS 14.0, all features and tools are available for customization and exposure via toolbars to help users customize the interface with frequently used features, along with tools for easy and direct access. Several hot keys enable frequently repeated operations, reducing the number of steps for a given task. Other related improvements in ANSYS 14.0 include automatic freeze during slice, better error handling, easy toggle between single and box select options, and visualization controls for edge direction and vertices to identify and fix topological issues.
ANSYS EKM Product Installation & SetupANSYS EKM 14.0 brings new capabilities with important changes to simplify installation and licensing with EKM Individual and EKM Shared products.
- The EKM Individual setup allows an EKM server to be set up for an individual user on his own machine. A user can access the private repository on an individual server, as well as have access to the full capabilities of EKM.
- The EKM Shared setup allows an EKM server to be set up on a shared device that can be accessed by multiple users in a collaborative mode. Multiple users can access a shared repository via LAN or across a WAN.
