DesignSpace Overview
2
What is DesignSpace?
  • DesignSpace is a simulation tool from ANSYS, Inc.
    that was developed to be used in conjunction with
    3D CAD to provide designers and engineers with
    quick feedback on product design performance
    during the design process.

DesignSpace Features
  • Stress, Deflection, and Factor of Safety
  • Thermal Simulations
  • Modal Simulations
  • Shape Optimization
  • Assembly Models
  • Fatigue Add-on
  • Specialized capabilities for thin parts.
  • Knowledge-Based Automation

12
DesignSpace Technology
  • Knowledge-Based Automation is simply taking a
    process, that normally may be complicated or
    require manual intervention, and intelligently
    automating it.
  • This is the key to the fast learning curve and
    high degree of success that DesignSpace users
    find.
  • Our strategy makes minimal sacrifices in
    flexibility, while gaining tremendous benefits in
    capability, reliability, and speed.

13
Assembly Contact
  • Bonded No sliding or separation.
  • No Separation Free sliding without separation.
  • Frictionless Free sliding that allows
    separation.
  • Rough No sliding that allows separation.

14
Parametric Simulation
  • Features
  • Bi-directional Associativity
  • Automated Geometry Regeneration and Refresh.
  • Input / Output Simulation Parameters Including
    Materials, Loads, and Results.

Add-on Modules Fatigue
23
Fatigue Module
  • Most parts fail over time due to fatigue. The
    DesignSpace fatigue module allows you extend your
    simulation to address the performance over the
    required product life.
  • This module works with the Entra, Advansia, and
    Optima packages. Plus, the license floats
    between multiple copies of DesignSpace.

24
Fatigue Module
  • Outputs Include
  • Fatigue Life
  • Damage
  • Factor of Safety
  • Stress Biaxiality
  • Fatigue Sensitivity
  • Rainflow Matrix
  • Damage Matrix Output.

25
Fatigue Module
  • Features
  • Load Types Reversed, Zero-Based, Ratio, Load
    History
  • Analysis Type Goodman, Soderberg, Gerber

26
Fatigue Module
  • Material Definitions
  • Custom Material Definition.

27
Fatigue Module
  • Fatigue Sensitivity
  • Shows how the fatigue results change as a
    function of the loading at the critical location
    on the model.
  • Result may be scoped to parts or surfaces.
  • Sensitivity may be found for life, damage, or
    factory of safety.

28
Add-on Modules DesignXplorer
29
DesignXplorer
  • DesignXplorer provides performance insight into
    product designs by integrating simulation
    activities with parametric CAD models producing
    intuitive performance results that lead to the
    natural selection of optimum design alternatives.
