Ansys tools for different software applications

In summary, the conversation discussed the use of ANSYS as a simulation tool in the upcoming semester for a mechanical engineering student. They also talked about how different engineers may use different ANSYS tools for the same project and questioned what tools are commonly used in different industries. The engineer mentioned that the most commonly used packages for MEs are 3D Design, Materials and Structures, while EEs and Physicists may use Electronics and Semiconductors packages. The conversation ended with a request for more information about popular tools in these packages.

I am a mechanical engineering student and I know that our school will use ANSYS as simulation tools in the fall semester. And when I talk with one engineer, I know that they will use different kinds of ANSYS tools for the same project. The engineer uses ANSYS’s tools: Mechanical, Fluent, Maxwell for the same project.

I am wondering in different industries what kind of ANSYS’s tools will be used at the same time to finish the simulation process.

The graph below is ANSYS’s tool category I found online. Could you kindly please give me more instruction because I want to learn more about ANSYS’s tools during the Summer?

Welcome to the PF. :smile:

Which ANSYS package you use most will depend on your skillset and the project you are working on. As an ME, you will most likely be working with the 3D Design, Materials and Structures packages. The EEs and Physicists on your team would most likely be using the Electronics and Semiconductors packages.

Browse through the links on this page to learn more about the applications of the various packages...
