Proven Solver Technology
Multiphysics technology from ANSYS is built on proven solver technology validated by many years of analyses by the world’s leading corporations and universities. Technical depth and breadth in all physics — structural mechanics, heat transfer, fluid flow and electromagnetics, even down to the chip level — is essential to understanding the complex interactions among different physics disciplines. This industry-leading solver technology for all physics disciplines, in conjunction with the engineered scalability of the ANSYS product portfolio, enables users to solve challenging, real-world multiphysics problems.

Unified Simulation Platform
The ANSYS Workbench platform is a powerful multi-domain simulation environment that harnesses the core physics from ANSYS, enables physics interoperability and provides common tools for interfacing with CAD, geometry repair, mesh creation and post-processing results. An innovative project schematic view ties together the entire simulation process, guiding the user through complex multiphysics analyses with drag-and-drop simplicity.
Powerful HPC Solver Capabilities
High Performance Computing (HPC) enables high-fidelity multiphysics simulation (bigger, more-detailed, more-accurate, more-complete systems-level simulation) as problem sizes and complexities increase. Continual core solver improvements across the ANSYS suite remove scaling bottlenecks, pushing performance out to higher core counts, and enabling efficient processing of numerically large, incredibly detailed simulations.
Native CAD Import & Robust Meshing
Native, bidirectional CAD connectivity and automatic meshing with advanced options are provided through the ANSYS Workbench platform. This environment connects with major CAD systems and allows import from most neutral geometry formats. ANSYS Workbench provides a wide range of highly robust and automated physics-based meshing tools, including tetrahedral, pure hexahedral, mixed hex/tet/pyramid, inflation layers and high-quality surface meshes.
Seamless Data Transfer
Best practices for meshing and model set-up depends on the physics being examined and domain knowledge may need to be shared between engineers or even departments when undertaking multiphysics simulations. The ANSYS Workbench platform allows a seamless data transfer from one physics area to another, and it automates the mapping between dissimilar meshes.
