Multiphysics Simulation

In the real world, products do not work based upon one single physics.  They involve multiple physics that interact in complex and interesting ways.  In the past engineers seeking to simulate things had to focus on a single physic and make assumptions about the interactions between all of the physics involved.  With PADT's capability to do Multiphysics simulation in a single simulation model, we can provide our customers with design input and product information that is more accurate and useful.

Coupling Inside and Between Models

As experienced users of the entire suite of ANSYS products, PADT's engineering staff is capable of modeling almost any physical behavior and the interaction between behaviors.  Often times this is done by building a model for each physic and then transferring loads between models as the system iterates towards a solution.  In other situations PADT is able to use the coupled physics behavior in ANSYS to build models that capture all of the applicable physics in a single model.  Using either method, our engineers construct robust and accurate models for our customers.

Some of the tools PADT uses in this area are:

  • ANSYS Multiphysics
  • ANSYS Maxwell
  • ANSYS Simplorer

Some of the techniques and capabilities used are:

  • Matrix Coupling of: Stress, Thermal, Electrical, Electrostatic, Electromagnetic
  • Conjugate Heat Transfer
  • Fluid Solid Interaction, Fluid Solid & Thermal Interaction
  • System Level Modeling
  • Reduced Order Models
  • Steady State and Transient

Removing Assumptions for Accuracy

Although Multiphysics is inherent in the ANSYS product line, the proper application of the toolset requires the kind of cross-discipline and cross-industry experience that PADT is known for.  Working with our customers we can design a properly sized set of models that can be used to explore the complexities of Multiphysics behavior.
