ANSYS Mechanical

Flagship finite element analysis (FEA) tool for structural, thermal, acoustic and other effects

  • Applications from linear statics to complex transient simulations involving nonlinear materials
  • User-friendly tree-based graphical interface
  • Built in topology optimization to find optimum geometry shapes that efficiently meet objectives
  • Strong two-way connections with ANSYS tools in the Electrical, Fluids and Systems spaces
ANSYS Mechanical


An explicit analysis tool that is capable of simulating parts/assemblies that are subjected to large loads within a very short period of time

  • Applications include automotive crash testing, sport impact, metal crimping, etc.
  • Integrated into ANSYS Mechanical, providing easy-to-use interface of for pre and post processing

ANSYS Autodyn

Models short time duration events such as impact, drop testing, explosions, and more

  • Solves for complex interaction between all phases of matter due to built-in structural and fluid solvers
  • Simulates anything from large material deformation and failure to shock wave propagation
  • Accurately captures the effects of drop tests or impact on an assembled product (in conjunction with ANSYS Mechanical)
ANSYS Autodyn


Evaluate fatigue life of components and/or assemblies

  • Utilizes the stress/strain information from an upfront FEA analysis to predict life and damage
  • Capture fatigue life in complex, real-world loading duty cycles
