ansys has announced the release of discovery live, a new computer simulation technology that allows engineers to quickly explore design options and receive instant, accurate simulation results.
ansys has released new software that gives instant feedback on designs.
this new product will give engineers the freedom to explore new design options without a big commitment in time and cost. rather than spending time to analyze prototypes and run through traditional engineering simulations, discovery live gives “immediate feedback” on design changes.
"discovery live's breakthrough technology places real-time simulation in the hands of every engineer. coupled with an equal step change in ease of use, it enables true digital experimentation," said mark hindsbo, vice president and general manager, ansys.
"this will fundamentally change product development, inverting the traditional process by bringing simulation upfront and enabling millions of engineers to benefit from the power of simulation."
the simulation technology is the result of the parallel nature of graphics processing units (gpu), according to ansys. the company has been using nvidia gpu for supercomputing capabilities and this enables calculations to be made “thousands of times faster” than standard simulation tools.
"designers, scientists and engineers around the world rely on ansys to accurately predict their final products and projects," says bob pette, vice president, professional visualization, nvidia.
"ansys discovery live unleashes the power of nvidia gpus and cuda parallel computing to make the first ever real-time design environment with simultaneous visualization and simulation possible. we have a long history of working with ansys and look forward to our continued collaboration to advance breakthroughs in the way new products are designed and created."
discovery live works with fluid, structural and thermal simulations. engineers can produce a 3-d model that is interactive to new changes or design ideas.
a technology preview for discovery live is currently available at http://www.ansys.com/discovery.
