ANSYS Autodyn is an explicit analysis tool for modeling nonlinear dynamics of solids, fluids, gas, and their interaction. With a fully integrated, easy-to-use graphical interface enabling the set up, running, and postprocessing of problems, Autodyn offers:
Finite element solvers for computational structural dynamics (FE).
Finite volume solvers for fast transient Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
Mesh-free particle solvers for high velocities, large deformation, and fragmentation (SPH).
Multi-solver coupling for multi-physics solutions including coupling between FE, CFD, and SPH.
A wide suite of material models incorporating constitutive response and coupled thermodynamics.
Serial and parallel computation on shared and distributed memory systems.
Autodyn has been used in a vast array of projects and nonlinear phenomena. Here is a sample of real projects where it has been used:
Optimization and design of armor and anti-armor systems.
Designing mine protection schemes for personnel carriers.
Building protection measures and insurance risk assessment for blast effects in city centers.
Aircraft impact risk assessment for power stations.
Performance studies of oil-well perforating charges.
Decommissioning of offshore platforms.
Designing the shielding system on the International Space Station.
Safety assessment of particle accelerators.
Characterization of materials subjected to high dynamic loading.
Drop test of electronics devices.
Nuclear reactor safety.
Nuclear waste transportation safety.
