ANSYS Discovery AIM is a single integrated multiphysics tool that enables engineers to create or modify geometry, analyze structural, fluids, and electromagnetic effects, and post process all within the same platform.
The power of AIM lies in its multiple powerful flagship physics solvers that are tied together in an easy to use interface.
AIM also provides the ability for companies to create process templates that automate the entire simulation.
Guided Simulation Workflows
The goal of the AIM software is to make is easy to apply analysis early in the design process when design changes can still be made easily without large impacts. AIM’s guided simulation workflow and a highly intuitive user interface streamline the setup of execution of engineering analysis. Visual cues and guids allow users to quickly identify and navigate to required model inputs.
Integrated Geometry Modeling
AIM integrates with ANSYS SpaceClaim to provide the best geometry modeling tools in the industry. SpaceClaim enables users to rapidly create, edit, and repair geometry to evaluate design changes. SpaceClaim works with nearly all file types and is design to help optimize geometry for analysis. Here at Mallett, SpaceClaim is our number one CAD tool for setting up our analyses and editing geometry.
Proven Simulation Technology
AIM utilizes trusted ANSYS technology for all the steps in the simulation process, giving the user the peace of mind about the validity and accuracy of their results. AIM can solve a variety of problems including:
- Fluid Flow – accurately simulate key fluid flow behavior
- Static Stress – analyze stress and deflections on parts and assemblies. Includes nonlinear contact, structural joints, and large deflections
- Modal Analysis – determine a systems natural frequencies and corresponding mode shapes
- Electromagnetics – simulate static magnetic fields and current conduction
- Thermal – simulate thermal performance
- Polymer Extrusion – simulate polymer extrusion processes and evaluate die designs
Robust Design Optimization
Optimize your designs using ANSYS DesignXplorer technology. Vary CAD parameters, material properties, boundary conditions, and simulation results to the best design possible.
Interoperability for Engineering Collaboration
Aim uses the same proven ANSYS solver technology as ANSYS CFD and ANSYS Mechanical, so you can trust your results. AIM brings a robust analysis tool to the design engineer to help identify problems early in the design process.
