Corporations and universities leverage engineering simulation to solve difficult engineering challenges in healthcare, industrial equipment and vehicle engines

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 6, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  A company developing new spinal instruments to reduce the risks of scoliotic surgery and a university's examination of how a leatherback turtle would weather climate change were among the five winning entries in the annual ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) Hall of Fame image competition.

This engineering simulation from BRP - illustrating forces on an engine's gearcase - was one of the winners of the annual ANSYS Hall of Fame competition.

The contest, which highlights some of the most complex engineering challenges, gives ANSYS users the opportunity to showcase their simulation work by producing eye-grabbing images and animation.
