ANSYS Regional Conference – Toronto 

Physics. High-Performance Computing. Data Management. Thermal. Economic. Regulatory Forces. 
Individually, these phenomena impact your product’s performance. But the ability to accurately simulate how these forces converge and impact the entire system is the difference between approximating real-world conditions and predicting how your product will actually perform. 
At the 2013 ANSYS Regional Conferences, designers, engineers, analysts, managers and executives will come together to share simulation experiences, best practices and tips and tricks while gaining insight into ANSYS’ product roadmaps and the company’s overall strategy. 
This convergence of computer-aided engineering experts and other thought leaders offers opportunities for exchanging ideas and improving your engineering simulation skills. Highlights include:
  • Keynote presentations from ANSYS management and industry-leading
  • User presentations showcasing the unique ways in which customers are using solutions from ANSYS to challenging problems
  • ANSYS technology demonstrations from technical support
  • Opportunities to meet with ANSYS hardware and software partners and discuss how their solutions improve your product development processes

Remove Geometry Bottlenecks with ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler

Please join us for a look at ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler (ASCDM) that provides CAE analysts the easiest and fastest tools possible to get geometry ready for simulation.
See how ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler:
  • Easily repairs corrupt and dirty geometry issues
  • Allows for fast de-featuring and simplification of complex CAD models
  • Streamlines model-prep tasks for CFD and FEA with simple tools
  • Add dimensions to IGES and STEP models for optimization studies
  • Saves you days or weeks by removing CAD bottlenecks
By putting simulation users in control of geometry, CAE can drive product development by optimizing models before CAD and validating results post-CAD.

SimuTech Group Named One of the Top Technology Services Companies for Second Consecutive Year


Finalist for Technology Services in Digital Rochester’s GREAT Awards for 2012

Rochester, NY: September 24, 2012 –SimuTech Group, the largest full service North American ANSYS channel partner that provides complete sales, support, training, and consulting services, announces that SimuTech is once again a finalist in the GREAT (Greater Rochester Excellence and Achievements in Technology) Awards 2012 for Technology Services.  The GREAT Award is an annual event hosted by Digital Rochester, whose mission is to strengthen and grow the region’s technology community through education and networking. Each year, the organization recognizes a variety of companies and individuals.

In 2011, SimuTech won the Technology Services award. This award recognizes individuals and organizations that have shown sustained commitment and leadership in support of new technology creation. Through these efforts, customers, suppliers, and partners reach their goals and objectives.
According to Ken Lally, SimuTech’s CEO, “We are especially pleased to once again to be a part of this elite group of organizations. This recognition is testament to our commitment to customers and the quality of our products and services. While the GREAT Award is awarded to companies located in the Rochester area, SimuTech maintains offices throughout the United States and Canada, so I congratulate colleagues across the organization for their dedication and commitment to excellence.”

Fine Tuning Wastewater Treatment

In 2011, civil engineering firm Burgess & Niple (B&N) entered into a contract with the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District for a proposed upgrade of the Southerly WWTP preliminary treatment facilities, including an improved grit removal system. To evaluate the impact of the proposed grit tank modifications on removing the desired level of particulates under both nominal and peak flow conditions, B&N turned to the SimuTech Group to conduct computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations.

ANSYS Releases Student Version of its Simulation Suite:


ANSYS Launches Student Version of Robust Simulation Technology

Academic Student Now Available for Purchase in the U.S.

PITTSBURGHSept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. college students can now take engineering simulation technology outside of the classroom with ANSYS® Academic Student, a new simulation solution derived from ANSYS' successful teaching software. This robust technology, which was released today, offers similar capabilities as the commercial solution at the affordable price of $25 for a one-year license. Eligible U.S. students can download the ANSYS solution used in their classroom on their personal computer, eliminating the physical restriction of having to be on campus to access the technology.

The simulation functionality built into Academic Student provides access to the same solvers and user environment in ANSYS' industry products. The inclusion of structural mechanics, rigid-body dynamics, fluid dynamics and multiphysics solvers addresses the fundamental educational needs of students across many disciplines, such as mechanical, aerospace, civil, chemical, biomedical engineering and physics. Students with multicore processors on their personal computers (up to a quad-core processor) can also benefit from the software's ability to run the solvers in parallel, allowing for more advanced simulations.

Mechanical and aerospace engineering students at Cornell University were among those selected to test ANSYS Academic Student on a trial basis prior to this launch. Rajesh Bhaskaran, Swanson Director of Engineering Simulation at Cornell, integrates simulation technology into courses across the Cornell Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Program. "Not only is this powerful solution easy for the students to access both financially and physically, it's also valuable to our curriculum. It allows our students to apply the technology across several of their engineering courses to complete homework assignments and projects, which ultimately gives them a deeper understanding of the solution's capabilities," Bhaskaran said.

"Education is a core focus for ANSYS. We're dedicated to providing quality simulation tools to the academic world and helping to shape the engineers of tomorrow," said Murali Kadiramangalam, academic program director at ANSYS. "Students now have unparalleled access to ANSYS multidisciplinary engineering simulation in the comfort of their dorm rooms. Not only will this help students with assignments, projects, competitions and theses/dissertations, but it also allows them to explore simulation. Enhanced simulation knowledge will help students transition more easily to the professional industry, where ANSYS is the tool of choice."

ANSYS Academic Student is sold and distributed online via the ANSYS Student Portal, which provides instant access to numerous learning tools, tutorials and training. ANSYS offers a full range of academic products suitable for both physical and distance learning as well as academic research. Future plans for Academic Student include making it available outside the U.S. market and linking to cloud computing to further increase its accessibility.
