ANSYS AUTODYN is a uniquely versatile explicit analysis tool for modeling the non-linear dynamics of solids, fluids, gas and their interaction. Our focus is on providing the most advanced capability in the form of a very robust tool, backed up by first class support.

With a fully integrated, easy to use graphical user interface in the ANSYS Workbench Platform, ANSYS AUTODYN offers:

  • Finite element solvers for computational structural dynamics (FE)
  • Finite volume solvers for fast transient Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
  • Mesh free particle solvers for high velocities, large deformation and fragmentation (SPH)
  • Multi-solver coupling for multi-physics solutions including coupling between FE, CFD and SPH
  • A wide suite of material models incorporating constitutive response and coupled thermodynamics
  • Serial and parallel computation on shared and distributed memory systems
  • Access to powerful geometry and meshing tools standard available through the ANSYS Workbench platform
  • Bi-directional connectivity to parametric ANSYS DesignModeler and CAD models

Multiple & Coupled Solution Techniques 
Comprehensive set of solution techniques, enabling users to select the most appropriate and accurate solver type possible for a wide range of problems

Open Architecture
Features can easily be extended by the user through the use of user subroutines and user variables

Extensive Material Model Library 
The ANSYS AUTODYN material library is extensive and broad, with elastic, viscoelastic, strain hardening, porous compaction etc. strength models as well as linear, ideal gas, multiphase, explosive, crack softening etc. failure models

Parallel Processing on Shared Memory and Distributed Memory Systems 
To reduce solution time, problems can be run on parallel computer systems, including shared memory and clustered computer systems

Convenient, Practical and Sophisticated Modeling Features 
Two dimensional models, three dimensional models, remapping from 1-D to 2-D and from 2-D to 3-D, cell dezoning, part activation and deactivation, solver type remapping (i.e. Lagrangian to Eularian) and natural fragmentation are all powerfully accessible

Extensively Validated Solution Techniques by Experiments
Extensive commercial and military physical testing has been used for more than 20 years to correlate simulation model results with the complex physical realities experienced in high speed, high deformation short duration events
