Ansys Structural Analysis

Ansys FEA helps you solve structural engineering problems and make better, faster design decisions. Customise, parameterise & automate your simulations to analyse multiple designs, while integrating with CFD and electromagnetics

Trusted Scaleable Capabilities for all Structural Challenges

ANSYS structural analysis software is trusted by organisations around the world to rapidly solve complex structural engineering problems with ease. Finite element analysis (FEA) tools from ANSYS provide the ability to simulate every structural aspect of a product:

  • Linear static analysis that simply provides stresses or deformations
  • Modal analysis that determines vibration characteristics
  • Advanced transient nonlinear phenomena involving dynamic effects and complex behaviour

All users, from designers to advanced experts, can benefit from ANSYS structural analysis software through: the renowned ANSYS Workbench intuitive workflow; wide variety of material models; element library quality; solver speed, robustness and accuracy; and the ability to model every product — from single parts to very complex assemblies with hundreds of components interacting through contacts or relative motions.

Software Options

All Ansys structural mechanics solutions are built on the same solver technology and Ansys Workbench intuitive user environment, enabling you to easily upgrade between products as your simulation requirements evolve.

Ansys Mechanical Enterprise is a complete solution for linear and non-linear structural and thermal analysis, including:

  • Full range of comprehensive static, dynamic, rigid/flexible body mechanism and impact solvers for design validation
  • Structural, fluid dynamics and electromagnetic capabilities for simulation-led design exploration
  • Ansys SpaceClaim for geometry importing, building and editing
  • Ansys Autodyn simulates the response of materials to short duration severe loadings from impact, high pressure or explosions.
  • Dedicated composite draping and analysis module (Ansys Composite PrepPost)
  • Fatigue and hydrodynamic (Ansys AQWA) analysis
  • Design of experiments (DesignXplorer) module for Robust Design & Optimisation
  • ACT customisation toolkit
  • Coupled-field capabilities for multiphysics analysis

Ansys Mechanical Premium is a comprehensive non-linear stress analysis software for advanced structural analysis, including transient thermal, dynamics and fatigue capabilities.

Ansys Mechanical Pro is a flexible general purpose linear stress analysis software for regular structural analysis, including transient thermal, modal and fatigue capabilities.

For Simulation-Led Design Exploration

Ansys Discovery is an integrated multiphysics solution for designer-focused simulation, including structural, fluid dynamics and electromagnetics capabilities.  

For Specific Requirements

Ansys LS-DYNA simulates the response of materials to short duration severe loading. It is the most commonly used explicit simulation program, best suited for the experienced and highly technical user.

Ansys nCode DesignLife extends ANSYS structural mechanics solutions for advanced durability/fatigue analysis, calculating culmative damage due to complex duty cycles from ANSYS stress and strain results.

The speed of ANSYS simulations can be reduced further through efficient parallel processing capabilities to exploit multiple core PCs and High Performance Computing (HPC). Bi-directional connections with all popular CAD systems enables seamless geometry import, automatic parametric studies and Optimisation.

Automatic contact detection make it easy to set up and prepare single part and assembly models for meshing.

Other tools, like factor-of-safety prediction and built-in simulation wizards, help even new users get accurate, reliable simulation results in minutes. Combined with Ansys Fluid Dynamics or Electromagnetics solvers, Ansys FEA software can undertake fluid-structure interaction (FSI) and other multiphysics simulations.

Ours has been a partnership that has grown in strength and maturity and promises to follow that trend moving forward.


It is safe to say that we see you as our established long-term partner. As all of our operations every month move much more into England together with rising sales demand, we will very soon need to launch more micro-EV models to keep up and more than excited to reunite to make some truly fantastic designs come to life.

Wau Motors

In addition to providing engineering services to Eminox, Wilde also are also our software providers (ANSYS), and have actively led discussions around developments within the software to show how some of these could enhance our day-to-day FE requirements. These sessions have been extremely productive in helping shape the strategy for the development of FEA within Eminox – it has helped me immensely to review the direction for virtual analysis led design within Eminox.


You are always extremely helpful with any issues we experience and nothing seems to be too much trouble as far as your customers are concerned.

Airborne Composites Ltd

Simply Excellent!

Bibby Transmissions

Fast response and very knowledgeable staff, an excellent all-round service.

London Marine Consultants

Support are very quick to respond to reported issues and also very willing to assist with all other aspects of tools including evaluations and trials.

UTC Aerospace Systems (Sensors & Int Systems)

The advice you gave me on extracting radial stresses using paths was precisely the information I needed and the fact you provided screen dumps of the actions needed, so I knew exactly where to look, was excellent.

Torquemeters Limited

Luke was very helpful in his comments and provided an alternative solution that allowed me to get the data out of my FEA analysis we required.

Torquemeters Limited

Wilde gave us exactly what we were looking for. Their consultancy service confirmed some of the assumptions we were making and added value to the report to our client. It also increased our level of confidence in the recommendations we made to our client.


Wilde’s integrated scope of material testing, material modelling and model validation provides an excellent base for our FE analysis, allowing our in-house analysis team to focus on providing high-quality analysis of our products.

Siemens Subsea

Another excellent training course from Wilde. The tips revealed during the course will enable a more efficient use of ANSYS Workbench, DesignModeler and Mechanical.

Esterline (Darchem Engineering)

Having some exposure to ANSYS Mechanical in my current role the mechanical intro course has answered a lot of questions and uncertainties. It has also prompted new questions about potential for many of the encountered features and the prospect of facilitating better engineering analysis.
