Ansys software will provide predictively accurate, end-to-end capabilities for body durability analysis

Key Highlights

  • Ansys’ structural simulation solutions will help deliver next-generation vehicles that provide a safer, more comfortable passenger experience   
  • Provides end-to-end, predictively accurate capabilities for virtual performance validation of the body system
  • Hyundai motor company named Ansys Mechanical™ and Ansys LS-DYNA™ its preferred structural analysis solutions following a rigorous 18-month competitive evaluation 

PITTSBURGH, PA, March 5, 2024 – Hyundai motor company named Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) a preferred supplier of structural simulation solutions for body system analysis that will ultimately support improvements to the safety and comfort of tomorrow’s passengers. Ansys’ strong market strategy, predictive accuracy, and commitment to product development rose above competitive offerings to become Hyundai’s preferred supplier.

For automotive companies with well-established product development processes, transitioning from one simulation tool to another demands extensive time and strict evaluation standards. Hyundai benchmark tested multiple simulation solutions over the course of 18 months, exploring areas such as model analysis accuracy, high-performance computing throughput, and future product strategy.

Ansys Mechanical, the leading finite element analysis tool, and LS-DYNA, the leading explicit simulation tool for crash safety analysis, outperformed competitors and demonstrated stronger analysis accuracy, better performance in data processing, and a robust future technology development strategy. These high-performance capabilities will be utilized in the analysis of body system durability, stiffness, and strength.
