ANSYS 2019 R2
ANSYS 2019 R2 utilizes a digital thread to deliver simulation solutions that enable digital transformation, further enhancing the functionality and effectiveness of the full ANSYS software suite by streamlining and simplifying the product design cycle. Highlights below feature a few available updates to Mechanical, Additive Manufacturing, and Fluids.
2019 R2 boasts significant upgrades to the ANSYS Mechanical user interface. This allows for enhanced productivity, ease of use and customization capabilities. Instant search and launch tools allow for quick command execution. The newly available GRANTA Materials Data for Simulation library adds hundreds of new materials ready for selection directly within Mechanical. New in 2019 R2 to Mechanical is Level Set, a topology optimization methodology offering the ability to expand the growing capabilities available to all engineers and designers.
2019 R2 provides an array of updates and improvements to Additive Manufacturing. ANSYS Workbench Additive has been enhanced with the addition of symmetry for faster solve times on mirrored or repeating geometry. Other new 2019 R2 additions include options for powder elements, the ability to build on existing geometry, the option of stress-relief heat treatment simulations, and the capacity to work with volumeless support geometries.
2019 R2 updates include an enhanced new ANSYS Fluent experience featuring a task-based, fault-tolerant workflow. This translates to more computational fluid dynamics analysis in less time, with less training than ever before. To speed meshing for non-watertight geometries, the new workflow uses a “wrapper” which is a layer of mesh able to cover up surface imperfections in the geometry. Complex models that previously took days or weeks can now be accurately meshed in hours. Other enhancements include reaction mechanism optimization in ANSYS Chemkin-Pro, parallel performance gains in ANSYS Forte, and hybrid meshing in ANSYS TurboGrid.
