Upfront Thermal Optimization with ANSYS AIM 17.2

Optimizing heat transfer and controlling temperatures is a critical design engineering issue for many industry applications, including heat exchangers, thermal mixing valves, exhaust manifolds and electronic devices. Accurate prediction of the temperature in both the fluid and solid components is essential to accurately predict the thermal performance of a product design. By performing upfront thermal simulation, design engineers are able to accelerate product designs, mitigate late stage design changes and reduce physical prototypes. ANSYS AIM is an easy-to-use simulation environment designed for all engineers to rapidly and confidently evaluate product performance well before design decisions are locked-in. ANSYS AIM 17.2 includes many new features for upfront thermal simulation. Continue reading

ANSYS AIM Customization Increases Opportunities for Upfront Simulation

Many companies are looking to introduce simulation upfront, as early as possible in their design processes, to bring better products to market faster and at reduced overall costs. ANSYS AIM has been developed with a view to providing unparalleled ease of use on top of ANSYS’ proven solver technology in a highly configurable and customizable way. We talked about this in our recent webinar, now available on-demand. Continue reading
