ANSYS for all Engineering fields
Syed muneef A.
Kommentare: I used this software for my Master's degree research. it provided me with satisfactory results and helped to save a lot of my time. these results were compared with experimental results and they almost matched.
Vorteile: First of all this software is not for specific engineering it can be used by every engineering department. it contains different types of tools that can fulfill the requirements of all engineering fields. it is also a user-friendly software and complete user guidance is available. This software has the ability to accept geometries designed in other softwares. this software basically consists of four different steps. first is a Modular design where the user can design his/her own geometry. The second step consists of meshing where geometry is divided into smaller portions to apply the required equation solvers. the third step is setup where boundary conditions are applied. the last step contains results where it can be analyzed through tabular or graphical representation.
Nachteile: This software is very heavy and requires a powerful computing power for accurate results. it crushes during simulations after which you will have to restart all of your work.

TUI is the best way to use all features of Fluent
Kommentare: ANSYS Fluent is my primary tool for CFD. It has a better correlation with physical world. Always we see most similar results between CAE and Test.
Vorteile: ANSYS Fluent is a well-known CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) Software in the industry. It's using by wide-range of companies from automotive, aviation, defense, marine, agriculture, chemistry, ...etc. industries. It has a well oriented graphical user interface (GUI). You can easily set the type of CAE analyses and boundary conditions. If you need a quick setup for your CAE case, you should use Text-User-Interface (TUI). You should write your commands into a text file and execute on the computing cluster. That's the easy way to run an analysis.
Nachteile: It is so hard to debug the TUI errors. You could spend much resource (CPU) for this kind of stuff because it takes so long time.

This is a wonderful suite to perform precise simulation and get accurate results with multiple cores
1.) Its topology optimization in a latest update provides accurate results against shape optimization in old versions.
2.) This saves time when running multiple computes to get your desired mesh.
1.) It requires a wealth of knowledge and experience including theoretical &
2.) It costs high for learners and does not provide access to full set of tools.

Useful and versatile analysis tool for all projects
Sachin ganesh U.
Kommentare: As a student, ANSYS has been extremely helpful for my projects and assignments.
Vorteile: I used ANSYS extensively for the analysis of mechanical components. ANSYS APDL is easy to use and follows step-by-step procedures. Other platforms of ANSYS like the fluent is also very versatile. The software can be used to analyze simple to extremely complicated processes and structures.
Nachteile: The documentation is not very good and getting help about projects and analyses is a bit difficult at the start. The software is memory intensive and requires performance computers for smooth operation.

Robust structural and thermal simulation tool
Kommentare: Ansys constantly develops new tools and techniques for fast & accurate simulations. If you have a team of engineers who need advanced simulation capabilities with simple UI, it's the best simulation tool available.
Vorteile: Ansys is an industry leading software for structural and thermal similation. It's modular approach to setting up multi-physics simulation makes it easy and intuitive to use even for beginner users. But don't let its simplicity fool you. If you know what you are doing it can pretty much let you adjust every single simulation parameter from meshing to solver settings. Geometry cleaning / preparation and meshing is perhaps the most time consuming aspect of running a simulation. Ansys' adaptive mesh refinement does an outstanding job of meshing the geometry automatically which is great for a first pass analysis. You can pass results from one simulation to other just by dragging and dropping an arrow in UI
Nachteile: Unlike Abaqus which includes everything in one single license, you will need to purchase different modules for advanced simulations (non-linear, dynamic, fatigue etc.) which can be very expensive.

Kommentare: It is a helpful software though it can be more user-friendly.
Vorteile: It gives reliable simulation results before manufacturing a device. At each version tries to solve the software problems.
Nachteile: Sketching a system is harder compare than similar software. The user's help document is not practical because of lacking enough examples.

ANSYS is a great software for 3D simulations
Kommentare: I used ANSYS for my research during my masters and also my phD.
Vorteile: This software is much more user friendly compared with other 3D simulations programs. I think the learning curve is shorter compared with programs like abaqus. However, abaqus provides more capabilities and also introduces material subroutines and the capability of incorporating your own code with the program. However, I think ANSYS has included those capabilities in their more recent versions. They also have the CFD ( coupled fluid dynamics to their program) which is great to model interaction of fluids with solids
Nachteile: It is a very computationally heavy program and it crashed a lot when I was using it. However, my setup of the time was not really strong so I was to blame as well for that.

With ANSYS, you don't need to fear complex analysis
It is a perfect assistant for applications such as simulations, analysis, , design verification, etc.
I have used ANSY's mostly for static, dynamic and thermal analysis. It was challenging to learn to use this software, but after getting hang of it, making complex analysis became relatively easy task.
+ It makes possible modelling and solving many kind of engineering application in a practical way and short period of time.
+ The results that is provided are accurate and reliable.
+ It has integration with other modelling and design software.
+ Tutorials are really helpful.
- It takes so much effort to be good at ANSYS.
-It is challenging to make a sketch for complex designs. That makes user have to resort to other design software such as Solidworks etc.
When I get an error, I can hardly find the reason for this error.

Robust FEA software for modeling and experimental verification
Kommentare: Getting past the initial learning curve of knowing how to properly setup a simulation, without over-constraining the system, can be quite frustrating. But when done properly, with help from experts and online resources, the end results can be extremely valuable for research and design applications in engineering, and can help guide future design improvements.
Vorteile: The numerous features available in ANSYS make it essential for design verification and modeling. As a graduate researcher, designing a new experimental apparatus necessitates knowing the potential loading that will be imposed on the system, and even the flow field analysis (checking for laminar flow). ANSYS provides enough online resources to quickly learn how to create a model, create an adequate mesh, and setup the proper boundary and load conditions for the analysis. The end results have aided in improving engineering designs. I highly recommend learning and being exposed to ANSYS early as an engineer.
Nachteile: The overall interface is not that user-friendly at first. A lot of the different setup parameters, whether meshing, boundary conditions, load conditions, physical constants, or mesh type, are all often found on their own separate drop-down window, which makes navigating between different settings and properly setting up the model quite confusing at first. The built-in modeling functions are also not robust enough to model anything complex. It is definitely recommended to import a model from a devoted CAD program.

ANSYS Workbench is just amazing
Kommentare: ANSYS has gone and made a designer's job easier. I mean,most designers will agree that undertaking analysis the conventional way is, lets be honest, way too tedious in this era. Now ANSYS has gone and made things much simpler for us. And with the user friendly GUI of the Workbench, ANSYS has taken ease and reliability of analysis several notches up. That being said, it is also to be noted that with the above mentioned user-friendliness inclusions has enhanced the potency of the software. The accuracy and reliability of solutions dished out by the software is spot on. Also for small to medium sized analysis (which is done most of the time), ANSYS does not take a toll on the PC. Analysis times are quite fast. Overall a great software to have for analysis, simulations, design optimization, design verification, etc. This, coupled with decades of development of this software makes it one of the must haves for any design organization.
Vorteile: Excellent GUI. Very user friendly. High accuracy and reliability. Has numerous modules for all types of analysis.
Nachteile: Reading mesh of imported geometry should be worked upon a little bit. Several instances have occurred wherein mesh was not read correctly leading to waste of time.

Well developed software for engineers
Kommentare: We were doing the projectile impact, depth of penetration and brittle material analysis in ANSYS. It is a good software for the simulation of plastic and brittle materials. It provides easy tools to perform analysis. The only area it lacks in postprocessing.
The user interface of the software is very good. It has all the tools to perform Explicit and Implicit Analysis. Mesh generation is easy to use and in the newer version, you can easily create complex geometry.
Good software to analyze brittle materials.
Nachteile: The material library is not that updated for explicit materials and it could have been improved. Apart from that, there are fewer tools for postprocessing and it could have been improved. Postprocessing is the most important part of the analysis and ANSYS has some limitations in postprocessing.

An effective, friendly and reliable mechanical component simulation tool.
Darwin reynell N.
Kommentare: During my mechanical engineering studies, the subjects I most enjoyed were "computer-aided design" and "Finite Element Method". For this reason my thesis was oriented in the line of mechanical design, "design of a pin-on-disk friction machine", you can apply load states on pieces of interest, determine their stresses, deformations, safety factor, fatigue, buckling between others. In the same way, repeat the process until achieving the convergence of results, redefining the meshes on a particular element. It is simply incredible.
Vorteile: In addition to all the different types of analysis available to apply in the pieces, you have a really friendly interface. Your pieces can be made in the Ansys DesignModeler program or be imported from other 3D CAD tools. In addition, you have refining tools for meshing to focus on areas of interest, either by its state of charge or its particular shape.
If the size of the element chosen in the meshes is very small, the simulation can take an excessive time. The issue would be related to the processing capacity of the computer.
It is required to have knowledge of the finite element methodology, to conceptually understand what you are applying in the program.

Makes engineering decissons easier...
Vorteile: Ansys WB is quite complex tool with multiple modules. You can make any of the engineering calculations (simulations) here. It works with finite element method. It has too many modules as I only know solid and fluid modules I use them on my both academical studies and design business.
Nachteile: It is really complex, deep as ocean! Especially if you are working on the remote areas of engineering, it could be a night mare. Customer support knows basics that is OK however they can not always support you on your deep and complex problems. Also on Fluent module is not really capable for "mass transfer".
