Exchange FEA data with ANSYS and execute ANSYS solver

Date Updated: 3/5/2012
Version: 3.507.12065
Compatibility: Isight 5.7, ANSYS Mechanical 11 and 12
Platforms: All

ANSYS is a comprehensive product solution for structural linear, nonlinear, dynamic, and thermal finite element analysis.  The product offers a complete set of elements behavior, material models, and equation solvers for a wide range of engineering problems.  The Isight ANSYS component creates a direct link to ANSYS, allowing the user to modify a reference ANSYS input file, execute the ANSYS solver, and extract outputs from an ASCII .OUT file.  The component can be used together with Isight design drivers to perform ANSYS optimization, ANSYS DOE, or ANSYS Monte Carlo simulation.

The component provides default support for a variety of input commands including ACEL, ALPHAD, BLOCK, BFE, BFUNIF, DELTIM, DL, DOMEGA, ESIZE, F, FK, FLDA, IOPTN, K, MP, N, OMEGA, R, SF, SFA, SFBEAM, SFE, SFL, SPCTEMP, STEF, TBTEMP, TIME, TOFFST, TREF, and TUNIF.  Furthermore, command support is configurable and extendible by the end-user through a configuration file to allow support for any additional ANSYS commands.

Users of the ANSYS component also use the following components:
Catia component, Pro/E component, Unigraphics component, VCollab component
