The construction industry and the heavy equipment associated with it have great applications for the use of the ANSYS simulation tools. Whether it be improving safety, comfort, structural strength, or equipment reliability and fatigue life, ANSYS may be used to optimize these designs. 

The most innovative companies in the construction industry use virtual prototyping to verify their products and buildings while still in the concept stage. The ANSYS software suite of structural, fluids, and electromagnetics provide the tool set to make this happen. 

Representative examples of simulation in construction include:
