Ansys 2022 R1 expands Discovery’s astonishing Live physics in the critical area of thermal management through the addition of coupled fluid-solid simulation.
This fast, fault-tolerant approach means that the simulation of heat exchangers, liquid cooling devices, and exhaust systems is now dramatically easier to perform and up to 50x faster allowing testing of more design variations for expanded insight and discovery. Enhancements include:
- Fast and easy thermal management–Coupled fluid-solid thermal analysis for Live physicsallows fast prediction of heat dissipation and transfer under many fluid flow scenarios.
- Geometry preprocessing –Support for beams and shells, flex cable wrapping, and small units make Discovery a compelling tool for working with a wide range of geometries and use cases
- Workflow Innovation –Expanded history tracking, improved hinge and spherical joints, as well as newpostprocessing capabilities, such as local slice monitors and interactive probes, accelerate the simulation journey from setup to results.
- Additional physics –Compressible flow for both Live and High-fidelity physics, temperature-dependent material properties, and 1D springs expand the scope and depth of Discovery’s simulation capabilities.
