Your job is becoming vastly more complicated. You’re facing unrelenting pressure to lower cycle times and reduce costs, while increasing quality and eliminating risk. Innovations in ANSYS 19 will help you tame complexity and enhance productivity, and empower engineers to solve problems with greater accuracy — across the broadest range of applications. This is how we are making simulation even more pervasive.

With ANSYS 19, every engineer can create better, more accurate computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations. Engineers will benefit from greatly from continuing improvements in automation, productivity and workflows . In addition, ANSYS 19 includes new features and functionality that enable engineers to solve CFD problems with more accuracy than ever before, especially for phenomena that were too difficult or time consuming to simulate using previous methods. ANSYS 19 also introduces ANSYS Chemkin Enterprise, fast, accurate combustion
and reacting flow simulation in a single license.

Also at R19.0, ANSYS Mechanical Pro, Premium or Enterprise licenses will now enable you to use four compute cores out of the box, so you can take more advantage of the great performance of the Mechanical solvers.

Also new is the availability of SMART (Separating, Morphing, Adaptive and Re-meshing Technology) fracture in ANSYS Mechanical Enterprise. SMART fracture models crack growth without the need for crafted meshes. It utilizes remeshing to avoid relying on the initial mesh distribution and orientation, which could adversely influence the predicted crack growth direction.

Acoustic simulations are more efficient with improvements to the enclosure requirements, far field microphones and transfer admittance matrices (for grilles) all being added.

The NLAD (nonlinear adaptive) technology solves the challenges of very large deformation models, like rubber sealing and forming operations. In ANSYS 19, this has been extended to work with our best-in-class high order elements to give even greater accuracy and performance.

Electromagnetics Highlights

ANSYS 19 includes significant advancements in our four major market segments: RF and Microwave/High Frequency (HF), Signal and Power Integrity (SI), Electromechanical Systems (EM) and Electronics Cooling. These markets span a broad range of applications, including 5G wireless communications, autonomous vehicles, motors and electrification, antennas and radar and high-speed electronics. ANSYS’ dedication to an accurate, automated, easy-to-use, multiphysics and multi-technology-based workflow is evident in this new release. In ANSYS 19, electromagnetic and electronics simulations become more and more pervasive across the entire product lifecycle. Simulation is no longer the sole domain of experts and used mainly for verification; rather, it is moving upfront in the development process to enable quick evaluation of design changes. At the same time, it’s also moving downstream in the product lifecycle process to analyze real-time operational data from connected machines in the industrial internet. We call this expansion of our tools "pervasive engineering simulation."


At 19.0 ANSYS has introduced Radar Cross Section (RCS) calculations into the HFSS SBR+ solver. This capability is based on ANSYS’ industry leading shooting-and-bouncing ray plus (SBR+) method to predict far-field and near-field radar signatures for 3D target models. The HFSS SBR+ ability to solve these computationally large simulations very quickly will be a great asset for engineers designing advanced detection systems and stealth technology.
