ANSYS Discovery Live provides instantaneous simulation, tightly coupled with direct geometry modelling, to enable interactive design exploration and rapid product innovation. It is an interactive experience in which you can manipulate geometry, materials & physics while instantaneously view the updated 3D results.
The instant, interactive simulation environment of ANSYS Discovery Live allows engineers — at all levels and in every discipline — to explore their concepts and designs. Dramatically easier to use than other simulation tools, Discovery Live performs simulation in near real-time. Run your first analysis concurrently as you design. Interactively iterate and explore the impact of changes with immediate results updates.
Engineers no longer need to wait for geometry modification, re-meshing and resolving. Discovery Live begins re-computing results immediately, without a need to start over.
Gain immediate insight when a load is suddenly increased, a material is changed or an input velocity drops to zero. Set up multiple physics on the same model and eliminate unnecessary geometry preparation.Interactive Results
As quickly as you generate questions, Discovery Live has answers ready for viewing. In a fluids application, for example, no other engineering simulation tool allows you to adjust the location, rate and size of a particle stream in one instant, then immediately switch to a composite view and see maximum pressures throughout the model.
- See instant engineering simulation results for designer-level applications
- Eliminate geometry cleanup, meshing, solving and post-processing
- Perform structural, internal/external fluids, thermal and modal analysis
- Edit geometry from any CAD source or model new ideas for exploration
- Receive live updates as you change physics types or inputs, make geometry edits or alter display characteristics
- Benefit from the readily available power of GPUs (graphical processing units)
ANSYS Discovery Live is breaking down the barriers that once prevented any engineer from using engineering simulation. For example, consider the difficulty involved with performing a structural analysis on complicated geometry. In Discovery Live, near-instant simulation results appear once loads have been established. And, because Discovery Live is interactive, you can test several design ideas in a few seconds and receive immediate insight around the structural performance of a design.
Internal Fluid Analysis
Finding meaningful internal flow characteristics in a reasonable amount of time can be challenging. Discovery Live provides not only invaluable feedback so you can understand trends, but also near-instant solving and visualization capabilities. What’s more, you can create new geometry within the flow, or edit existing features, and your updates will occur live. No other system in the world provides this type of information and functionality.
With the addition of the powerful SpaceClaim direct modeling technology, you can explore a 3-D space without traditional modeling bottlenecks, then instantly know how well your design will perform. Discovery Live is an invaluable tool for lightweighting as it offers rapid geometry modifications and an instantaneous simulation experience that allow for the design of structurally optimized parts.
Discovery Live provides real-time data on temperature distribution as you make 3-D model changes, or change input characteristics like heat flow and material type. Most importantly, Discovery Live lets you test your ideas in real-time to achieve your design goals in a fraction of the time.
Getting started with ANSYS Discovery Live requires little more than a few mouse clicks. The engineering simulations are instantaneous as you change boundary conditions or make quick, 3-D modeling changes. You can observe velocity, external forces, pressure, flow lines, particle flow and more to make physics-directed design decisions.
Discovery Live’s instant engineering feedback extends to even complex modal analyses. You can quickly observe the different modes of vibration and get a quick understanding of problem frequencies. With the rapid, direct geometry editing powered by Discovery SpaceClaim, you can make adjustments to your model and instantly see the impact. Discovery Live’s simulation-guided design will accelerate your product development, help avoid delays, and ensure you are designing the best products possible.
The Discovery product bundles are available with annual subscriptions to offer the greatest flexibility and best value.
