ANSYS Discovery Live

ANSYS Discovery Live
Real-time engineering simulation for rapid product exploration

This instant, interactive simulation environment allows engineers — at all levels and in every discipline — to explore their concepts and designs. Dramatically easier to use than other simulation tools, Discovery Live performs simulation in near real-time. Run your first analysis concurrently as you design. Interactively iterate and explore the impact of changes with immediate results updates.


Discovery Live Benefits

Interactive Geometry

What if you could make a simple or complex change directly on a 3D model, and instantly know the impact of that change? Engineers no longer need to wait for geometry modification, re-meshing and resolving. Discovery Live begins re-computing results immediately, without a need to start over.

Interactive Physics

Gain immediate insight when a load is suddenly increased, a material is changed or an input velocity drops to zero. Set up multiple physics on the same model and eliminate unnecessary geometry preparation.

Interactive Results

As quickly as you generate questions, Discovery Live has answers ready for viewing. In a fluids application, for example, no other engineering simulation tool allows you to adjust the location, rate and size of a particle stream in one instant, then immediately switch to a composite view and see maximum pressures throughout the model.

Discovery Live Features

  • See instant engineering simulation results for designer-level applications
  • Eliminate geometry cleanup, meshing, solving and post-processing
  • Perform structural, internal/external fluids, thermal and modal analysis
  • Edit geometry from any CAD source or model new ideas for exploration
  • Receive live updates as you change physics types or inputs, make geometry edits or alter display characteristics
  • Benefit from the readily available power of GPUs (graphical processing units)

The Discovery product line is available for trial and purchase

Discovery Live is included in the Standard and Ultimate bundles. This groundbreaking technology bridges the gap between design and engineering simulation, allowing engineers to explore larger solution spaces with more iterations.


What is ANSYS Discovery Live

ANSYS Discovery Live is the first ever simulation environment that provides real-time answers to engineering challenges. It’s let you interactively change geometry, physics inputs, and results displays all while instantly visualizing design performance.

The Speed of ANSYS Discovery Live

As fast as boundary conditions are established or geometry edits are made, Discovery Live displays useful results all in real-time.

Graphic and numerical updates are immediate when experimenting with design concepts and model changes in Discovery Live.

ANSYS Discovery Live Simulation of a Motor Mount Concept

In this demonstration of Discovery Live, we’ll walk through a concept model of a motor mount bracket. You’ll see in Discovery Live the setup of different solutions, monitoring different loading conditions or modal response in the same design, along with charts to track changes with each design point.

Interactive Results in ANSYS Discovery Live

Discovery Live is a simulation environment where engineers can modify display results and characteristics to rapidly observe trends in their design.
