ANSYS Announces Latest Releases Of AQWA And ASAS Software Suites

Latest software addresses engineering issues in the marine and offshore industries

SOUTHPOINTE, Pa., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced the newest availability of ASAS(TM) 14, structural finite element software for the offshore industry, and AQWA(TM) 5.6, a hydrodynamic assessment software suite. The latest releases are further confirmation of ANSYS, Inc.'s strong commitment to meeting the requirements of the user base and the increasing demands of the marine and offshore communities.

Developed by ANSYS, Inc.'s Century Dynamics group, ASAS introduces many new features which meet the demands of the user base, including a simple method for defining internal tank loading for vessels. Additionally, the unique nonlinear coupled wave-structure interaction facility has been enhanced with the addition of effective tension for curved tubular elements. Also being shipped is a brand new version of the modeling and results display system FEMGV(TM) Version 7, providing a new graphical user interface as well as introducing automated repair capabilities for CAD geometry imported into FEMGV. AQWA 5.6 introduces a number of ground breaking new features including the ability to handle up to 50 interconnected structures, user defined multi- directional wave spectra and improved handling of irregular frequencies as well as standing waves.

"The latest releases of ASAS and AQWA boast more capacity, more capability and more flexibility," said Naury Birnbaum, general manager, ANSYS, Inc. and a founder of Century Dynamics. "For example, AQWA's ability to handle up to 50 articulated structures is a five-fold increase over the previous limit while the ASAS Toolkit has been extended enabling users to write more extensive special applications using ASAS results.

With this new release, ANSYS extends its leading engineering simulation technology. The new capabilities add to the powerful breadth of solutions provided in the ANSYS suite of products that includes ANSYS(R), ANSYS(R) CFX(R), ANSYS(R) ICEM CFD(TM) and ANSYS(R) AUTODYN(R). ANSYS continues to integrate all of its key technologies within the ANSYS(R) Workbench(TM) thereby providing an unparalleled engineering design and simulation capability within a unified computing environment. Over many years AQWA and ASAS have maintained technical leadership within the markets they serve. These new releases reinforce this leadership. For more information, visit
