Volkswagen (VW), a German car manufacturer, has signed a master agreement with Ansys to use its multi-physics engineering simulation solutions.

The decision to use Ansys software was based on its ability to address the bandwidth of applications and the fact that the Ansys Workbench platform allows for substantial process compression.

In its research and development, VW uses structural mechanics, fluid dynamics and explicit analysis tools from Ansys to perform studies on climate control, headlights and engine internal flow.

‘The Ansys Workbench concept is convincing because we can easily do coupled simulations and, in this way, accurately account for the entire range of physics,’ said Dr Ralph Sundermeier, head of the department for computer-aided-engineering methods at VW.
