ANSYS has announced that DENSO, a worldwide automotive supplier, has selected ANSYS FEM software to standardize product development globally. DENSO will use the CAE software across its portfolio, which includes automotive powertrains, advanced electronics, thermal systems, refrigerators and air conditioners.
DENSO underwent a benchmarking process in choosing ANSYS, and then selected the solution because of its analytical abilities for structural linear, nonlinear and dynamics analysis. In addition, the software was selected for its ability to model with elements and its library of material models and equation solvers. Other factors included the program’s scalability in efficiently modeling a range of engineering problems and scenarios.
“Since the 2009 financial crisis, competition in the automotive industry has become fierce,” says Shigeru Akaike, general manager, CAE design promotion, DENSO. “To achieve the levels of quality and efficiency necessary to thrive against global competition, we need to ensure that we have best-in-class simulation software capabilities. With ANSYS, we are equipped with the right tools to expedite our product design and development process and ensure product quality and integrity. Crucially, this will afford us a competitive advantage as the automotive sector continues to face uncertain times.”
