Structural-Fluid Dynamics Academic Products

The Structural-Fluid Dynamics Academic products offer technology to address structural mechanics, explicit dynamics, fluid dynamics and thermal applications. The product variants are grouped into four sub-families: Associate, Research, Teaching and Toolbox. Each academic product is a high-value bundle of ANSYS technology that includes ANSYS Workbench, relevant CAD import tools, solid modeling, advanced meshing, solver and post-processing features.

Product Families

The following table shows the Structural-Fluid Dynamics Academic products grouped by sub-family. The second column shows the number of tasks (simultaneous users) per license that are available. For example, you can purchase ANSYS Academic Research as either a single-, 5- or 25-task license.

The Academic Toolbox products include:

  • Academic meshing tools - contains ANSYS ICEM CFD advanced meshing tools plus ANSYS DesignModeler and MCAD connection products; stand-alone toolbox product is intended for use with third-party CFD solvers.
  • Academic fuel cell tools - contains ANSYS Fluent solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) and polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) models; specialized solver models intended for use with any ANSYS academic product that contains ANSYS Fluent (fluid dynamics) capability

The academic high-performance computing (HPC) products are parallel processing tools that may be used only with the Research- and Associate-level products. These HPC products are sold per processor and are physics neutral, in that they will function with ANSYS Multiphysics, ANSYS Mechanical, ANSYS CFX, ANSYS Fluent and ANSYS Autodyn.
