ANSYS Fluent, HFSS and Mechanical

Let your computer be your crash-test dummy, without all the mess and expense. ANSYS provides some of the most accurate physical simulations of any scientific and engineering software available today.




ANSYS is serious business. Depending on the packages you pay for it will do structural analysis, computational fluid dynamics, heat transfer simulation and more. It turns your workstation into the ultimate “what if?” machine.

It’s important to pay attention to the pricing model that ANSYS uses. If your system has more than two cores (which it will) you’ll need the Ansys HPC package for certain applications such as fluid and structural simulations.

SYSTEM RECOMMENDATIONS:

The formula for a food Ansys workstation is simple. More core with more gigahertz. The software scales perfectly with more CPU cores, so dual- and quad- socket Xeon systems with tens of cores are highly recommended.

You should also aim for 4GB of RAM per core and keep in minds that Intel processors fare much better than AMD in this specific case.

Graphics-wise a good professional GPU will do the job of keeping live model interaction smooth.


Workstations for ANSYS Software
ANSYS FLUENT, HFSS and CFX are both CPU frequency and bandwidth driven application and perfectly scales on multiple CPUs. Plain simple: the more CPU cores / threads you use the better performance you will get. The actual memory required for a particular problem will depend on the mesh, physical models that are enabled, and domain complexity.
It is important to note that ANSYS performs better with Intel based systems. A good workstation video card is recommended to increase the performance during the interaction with the model.
