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.

RecurDyn enables engineers to create full FE models of flexible belts

Faciliitates extraction of stresses and strains from entire structure and takes into account all friction forces, shape and misalignment dynamics and structural flexibility

A virtual prototype of a belt must necessarily include the high flexibility of the belt itself, as well as a detailed description of the contacts. This is another scenario where RecurDyn provides better functionality than its competitors.

Cross Validation of the Final Design for the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge

The bridge designed by the world famed architect Santiago Calatrava

The bridge represents an example of a cable stayed mixed steel-concrete structure, where the stay cables are asymmetrically connected to the center of the deck and to the top of the central transverse steel arch.
