Instantaneous Simulation Results as Models Are Designed and Edited

  • Receive instantaneous engineering results and insights
  • Experiment with design ideas
  • Easily make changes
  • Perform 10 to 1,000 simulations in the same timeframe as one simple simulation

Discovery Live from ANSYS, the market leader in engineering simulation, makes it true: no meshing, no CAD model simplification – instead real time results for fluid, structural and thermal simulation applications!

  • Simulate on newly created models or any imported CAD file by utilizing the powerful SpaceClaim modeler in Discovery Live
  • Investigate more options earlier in the design process and develop new products that go to market faster
  • Explore all your “what if” design ideas at little to no cost in time and effort
  • Facilitate breakthroughs and innovations, take your engineering efforts and understanding of your designs to the next level

You will learn to understand the physics involved in your design instead of learning how to run FEA and CAD software.
Your way to optimal and innovative design has never been so fast, easy and fun!

Immediately see the impact of your design changes while making them. Test your design ideas and focus on creating optimal and innovative design.

What is ANSYS Discovery Live?

A new approach to Simulation

When engineering simulation entered the stage in the 70’s it changed the way we do product development and allowed engineers insights into product performance without having to build and break expensive prototypes. Simulation not just supplemented physical testing, but also allowed engineers to examine phenomena that would not be feasible or downright impossible to measure in the actual physical product.

However, simulation has so far has been limited to expert engineers that understand a particular physics and the numerical methods applied in great detail; the learning curve to mastery could be decades in some instances. In addition the actual simulation process typically takes days, weeks or months to setup, run and analyze results; leaving most engineers and product decisions without the benefit of the insight simulation can provide.

All that is about to change! ANSYS is introducing a brand new technology that not only is dramatically easier to use, but also performs simulation in near real-time. As an engineer you can run your first analysis concurrently as you design! As you continue to iterate with a model you can interactively explore the impact of changes with results updating immediately.

We are proud to introduce Discovery Live! A true game changer in the decade long quest to democratize simulation and make it useful and relevant to every engineer.

Now you have the chance to try ANSYS Discovery Live yourselves.
