Ansys HFSS software

What do you like best?

I have been working with HFSS for more than 8 years and I am very confident of the results it produces. it is a very powerful software that gives you capabilities to design various aspects of technologies including cell phone, wiring systems, chips, antennas. All other comparable software only provide results wit no feedback or reliability, however Ansys HFSS delivers reliable results.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it gets stuck with no option for debugging. Also the solid models Ansys HFSS produces (such as .step file, etc) are sometimes incompatible with other CAD tools. I also find licensing can be a bit expensive for a design software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Advanced technology in the area of particle physics and chemistry. It enabled new designs for pushing limits of science, including sensors and wireless components. ANSYS clustering, cloud and distributed computing capabilities allowed me to speed up the design process.

The preeminent CAE package

What do you like best?

ANSYS combines support for every conceivable type of FEA analysis into one consistent package. Design modeler is great for quick tweaks to imported CAD geometry in order to prepare the model for analysis. Workbench interface makes it very easy to share geometry and material data between multiple different analyses.

What do you dislike?

Geometry import from native CAD file formats seems to not work more often than it works. Design Modeler could be more intuitive for geometry creation from scratch. Some error messages when meshing and running analyses can be less than clear, so it is up to the user to know what he or she is doing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although the integrated analysis packages found in most CAD software are greatly improving, ANSYS is still the gold standard for FEA. For more complicated or advanced analyses (heat transfer, fluid flow, mechanical contact) it is a must and for simple analyses it still had many advantages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use ANSYS mostly for static mechanical analysis, with occasional contact and motion cases. The results are absolutely critical for success of my designs.

What Product and Machine Design solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Fantastic for in-depth, complex, or thorough analysis

What do you like best?

Firstly, this is the only FEA I've used that uses multiple threads/cores of a CPU, which streamlines calculation time significantly, in my experience. Secondly, there's pretty much nothing you can't simulate, seriously. With the workbench, running beam analysis, thermal transfer, fluid flow...you can do all of this to the same part. It's very integrative.

What do you dislike?

If you haven't been trained on it, it's very overwhelming. This thing needs a 40 hour course to fully understand how to properly prep for Analysis, set up your part or assembly for Analysis, mesh, and finally run the analysis. Just understanding the consequences of how you're running your analysis and what your results look like can be a bit complicated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a complete solution. If you're in the engineering or manufacturing industry or rely on them for product conceptualization and time to market, you need some type of FEA software, especially when your competitors are already using it!

Take the training, get involved, and start using it immediately! I had a "re-learning" curve as the time between when I took the training and when I started using it was significant, and it's definitely a perishable skill.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

FEA helps to streamline the product development process by allowing you to simulate real-world stresses and implementation when used as intended, and what the robustness and durability of your product is as designed. This will help you get your product to market faster (as it'll cut down on prototype iterations you'll need), it'll help you prevent over-engineering, which can mean more cost and lead-time, and it is all presented in a very robust way.

One stop CFD program

What do you like best?

I think it's by far the best, complete CFD program out there, with features for both steady state and dynamic simulation

What do you dislike?

Mesh sizing and computational time. Also the error warnings doesn't always show what's wrong.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A must learn if you like fluid modeling. Good but it's not a magic software, you need to truly understand the dynamics and how boundary works before relying on the results. I find students that just take a good converge result as a good modelling without considering how something logically works.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Any flow computational issues that need to be confirmed for projects before investment decision

Excellent program to simulate and watch the behavior of a fluid and its characteristics.

What do you like best?

The best of ANSYS is the speed of create a net of elements constituents of a fluid, and the properties that provides to us in determinates conditions.

What do you dislike?

To make the fluid gradient is necesary the density of the fluid that the software not provides, is the user who enters this property which can generate errors in the simulation

Recommendations to others considering the product

The best to people that works with fluids and gases, to make and know all the properties of the substance in any condition, it has tutorials to the beginners and many toolbar for a easily work

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ANSYS provides a lot of properties of a fluid in determinate conditions that helps in a proyect of engineering, phisychs, chemistry, and more. This finite element processor for solving mechanical problems includes: analysis of dynamic and static structures (both for linear or nonlinear problems), heat transfer analysis and fluid dynamics, as well as acoustic and electromagnetic problems.

The best FEA Analysis Tool in the market

What do you like best?

Ansys is one of the best software I have ever used. It's easy to use and gives desired results at every high stressed point. Also, it supports mostly all the file formats and the models can be edited.

What do you dislike?

Although it is the fastest tool available in the market for FEA, still I see some scope of improvement in that area.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With this software, you can explore the various possibilities any metallic or non-metallic component has to offer. Useful for business and research purposes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Stress analysis of subsea components to ensure the desired design life. It helps estimate the design life of any component.
