ANSYS 2019 R1
ANSYS 2019 R1 further enhances the functionality and effectiveness of the full ANSYS software suite. Highlights below feature a few available updates to Mechanical, Meshing, and Geometry.
2019 R1 offers new features and support for SMART fracture, prestressed substructuring generation pass, and substructuring generation pass restarts. Solvers & HPC benefit from improvements in symmetric contact pairs and MPC contact pairs with the goal of reducing load imbalances. 2019 R1 SMART Fracture includes updates that support temperature loading, surface pressure loading, SMP and DMP, PCG and SPARSE solvers, and displacement boundary condition mapping. Through a Simulation Template users are able to setup their analysis system using criterion based named selections, and Workbench now allows users to enter/edit Mechanical, all without having to attach geometry.
2019 R1 provides an array of updates and improvements for Meshing. This release includes the first of Layered tetrahedron mesh method for additive simulations. It offers support for corner crack mesh generation using arbitrary crack and contains improvements to mesh copy. Beta releases in 2019 R1 include: SpaceClaim Interactive Meshing, new shell connections and quad meshing, and axisymmetric sweep mesh.
2019 R1 updates include the addition of improved preprocessing tools: control visibility of each connection type, show hidden connections behind solids, and toggle colors of connection. Additive Manufacturing has a new Smoothing Option to preserve volume. Lattice improvements include Boundary Conformal lattices and the improved ability to remove incomplete lattice members. 2019 R1 Core Modeling updates are comprised of speed improvements in drawing sheets, scripting support for hole command and share topology, and separated selection for vertices vs. points.
