ANSYS release ANSYS 2019 R1

Simulations software maker ANSYS releases ANSYS 2019 R1, highlighting new features in its ANSYS Fluent CFD solver, along with tools to simulate additive manufacturing processes.

As a nod to the importance of electronics design in the IoT era, the software also includes a series of Electromagnetics simulation features to design for 5G network connected devices.

In structural analysis, the software includes a cloud-solve option, which lets you purchase and use remote computing power to process your simulation so your local workstation doesn’t get tied up during the simulation job.
