Ansys® is a very common software that is generally used by all types of engineering branches today to make physical simulations of various engineering systems. ANSYS® is a finite element analysis tool that engineering problems or systems could be structured by using various tools of ANSYS® software. With the defined boundary conditions, you could solve engineering problems by appointing a mesh structure to them.
In the latest versions of ANSYS®, there are lots of brand new tools that you could easily use to solve a problem. Also, ANSYS® widened the CAD tools by adding the SpaceClaim within itself in addition to DesingModeler. Especially mechanical engineers are generally using this FEA software ANSYS® to analyze their physical structures such as bridge systems, aerodynamics, automotive part’s analysis, and wide variety problems like that. So you could analyze your electrical, fluid, thermal, and structural systems by using ANSYS®’s various finite element tools and great meshing capabilities of ANSYS®.
