ANSYS To Showcase Recent Advances in Turbomachinery Simulation at Turbomachinery Conference

SOUTHPOINTE, Pa. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 2, 2009 ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that it will showcase its solutions for the turbomachinery industry at the International Gas and Turbine Institute (IGTI) ASME Turbo Expo conference to be held in June. The conference is the premiere annual event for turbomachinery, known for its comprehensive high-quality technical content, truly international participation by leading manufacturers, researchers and developers, and outstanding product exposition. ANSYS is a leading supplier of engineering simulation tools for the turbomachinery community, enabling engineers to develop the efficient and high-performance machines required by their end-users.

The recent release of ANSYS® 12.0 provides important advances, new features and capabilities, and improved efficiency for turbomachinery design engineers. Turbo-specific tools such as ANSYS® BladeModeler™ and ANSYS® TurboGrid™ have newly expanded capabilities. Their implementation within the ANSYS® Workbench™ platform enables easy interaction with traditional ANSYS tools such as structural mechanics and fluid dynamics. Thus, engineers have access to a complete multiphysics turbomachinery design and analysis capability within a single environment. The new ANSYS® Vista™ TF technology — a 2-D throughflow analysis solver developed together with PCA Engineers Limited — complements full 3-D fluid dynamics analysis to provide initial performance predictions in a matter of seconds, allowing many conceptual designs to be screened and ensuring that only the best are carried forward for full analysis. ANSYS staff will demonstrate these latest developments in three individual presentations at the ASME Turbo Expo stage.

“Turbomachinery is an important application to ANSYS, and to industry in general, in that it cuts across and plays a vital role in many industries, including power generation (gas turbines), aircraft (engines), chemical processing (process compressors), transportation (turbochargers for automotive, rail and ships) and biomedical (devices such as heart pumps),” said Brad Hutchinson, vice president, industry marketing, aerospace and turbomachinery at ANSYS, Inc. “Our many customers in all these industries rely on ANSYS to deliver a broad range of feature-rich simulation tools to meet the ever-increasing challenges of performance, development cycle, efficiency and emissions control. The ASME Turbo Expo is the ideal place for customers to learn how ANSYS software can enable them to meet these demands.” Hutchinson serves as a chair of a compressor session of the event.

ANSYS will be at booth # 401 at the ASME Turbo Expo, which takes place June 8 to 12 in Orlando, Florida, U.S.A.
