SOUTHPOINTE, Pa., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ANSYS, Inc.
(Nasdaq: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced a multi-year extension to its existing distribution agreement with Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC). Headquartered in Livermore, Ca., U.S.A., LSTC develops and markets LS-DYNA(R) software, a general-purpose transient dynamic finite element program capable of simulating complex real world problems. The long-term distribution commitment reinforces LS-DYNA technology as an integral part of the explicit simulation software suite from ANSYS, which also includes ANSYS(R) AUTODYN(R), an analysis tool for modeling the nonlinear dynamics of solids, fluids and gases as well as their interaction.
"With this long-term agreement, ANSYS will be able to continue to provide and extend its premiere explicit dynamics solutions," said Naury Birnbaum, general manager, explicit and offshore products at ANSYS, Inc. "Moreover, the integration of our explicit dynamics solution within the ANSYS Workbench environment allows engineers to take computer-aided designs to functional digital prototypes and perform simulations much more quickly than has been possible before. These powerful solutions from ANSYS greatly accelerate innovation and time to market for our customers."
Explicit dynamics analyses deal with extreme short-time durations (events that typically occur in less than a second), as well as high deformations, large strains, fractures or complete material failure. Explicit solutions involve applications in impact, blast, drop testing, bird strike, metal forming, crashworthiness and other high-speed phenomena. The explicit solutions from ANSYS provide mission-critical analysis for the defense, space, automotive, power and manufacturing industries.
ANSYS develops and distributes engineering simulation tools via the ANSYS(R) Workbench(TM) platform, which enables users to run sophisticated multidisciplinary simulations that include computational fluid dynamics (CFD), electromagnetic, explicit dynamics and mechanical stress analyses while utilizing a single geometry model. By streamlining the complete simulation process and integrating these tools as a unified suite of software, this technology removes the common difficulty of compatibility and file exchange found with stand-alone applications.
