Ansys Motion

The new paradigm for Multibody

Ansys Motion is a new generation software solution focused on multibody. It allows a rapid and accurate analysis for a wide range of problems related to mechanical systems: vibrations, handling performance, stress and strain evaluation, fatigue life. Ansys Motion uses four resolution schemes (rigid body, flexible body, modal and meshless EasyFlex) tightly integrated and linked each other to create rapid and efficient analyzes.

Using the implicit integration method, Ansys Motion guarantees accurate and stable solutions, even with assemblies with millions DoFs. From the latest versions, pre-processing is completely integrated into the Mechanical interface, this reduces the analysis setup time and allows to reuse models for many purposes.

In addition to the basic package, Ansys Motion offers vertical toolkits, focused on specific multibody dynamic analyzes for specific application fields:

  • Ansys Motion Car – Modeling of mechanical systems used for driving and moving the vehicle (e.g. suspension system, steering system, brakes)
  • Ansys Motion Drivetrain – Detailed analysis on power transmission devices (e.g. gears, bearings, shafts, housings)
  • Ansys Motion Links – Modeling of flexible power transmission systems (e.g. chains, tracks and belts)
  • Ansys Motion EasyFlex– Module for automatic meshless resolution. It can be used to calculate stress and deformation of flexible parts using a uniform grid.

A natural remedy for hot-spot stresses

Using advanced mesh morphing to seamlessly perform bio-inspired structural shape optimization

This paper demonstrates how the biological growth method, studied by Mattheck in the 1990s, can be easily implemented for structural shape optimization finite element method (FEM) analyses using advanced radial basis functions (RBF) mesh morphing.

Fuel Injection

A multibody model was developed using RecurDyn to study the high-speed dynamic behavior of the injector during a typical work cycle

The model contains both rigid and flexible bodies: the pin was modelled using the proprietary Full Flex technology which includes a Finite Element body in the dynamic simulation.
