What is ANSYS Simulation Software?
"ANSYS enables you to predict with confidence that your products will thrive in the real world. Industry leaders use ANSYS to create complete virtual prototypes of complex products and systems – comprised of mechanical, electronics and embedded software components – which incorporate all the physical phenomena that exist in real-world environments."
Why Use ANSYS Simulation Software?
"Engineering simulation is playing a growing role in science and engineering at the university level. Undergraduate students use it to learn physics principles and gain hands-on, real-world experience that can lead to a deeper understanding of engineering concepts. Postgraduate researchers apply simulation tools to solve complex engineering problems and produce data for their master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation."
