Platform (Ansys Workbench)

Gain higher productivity from integrated applications that leverage common and compatible data models with Ansys Workbench (Platform).

The Workbench platform is the backbone for an integrated, comprehensive simulation system that provides access to systems-level and multiphysics insights that were unattainable before.

With digital transformation initiatives, customers need to connect simulation and optimization to broader product life cycle processes. To do this, they must address scale and complexity challenges with heterogeneity of tools, data and process management, high-performance computing (HPC) integration, traceability and results accessibility — throughout development.

Ansys Cloud

Ansys Cloud offers the combined benefits of cloud computing and world-class engineering simulation. Engineers can easily, securely, and directly access HPC in the cloud with Ansys Mechanical and Ansys Fluent.

Multiphysics Simulation

Modern products can be complex. Having a detailed understanding of how they perform is key to ensuring safe and reliable function. Fluid forces, thermal effects, structural integrity and electromagnetic radiation can all impact performance.


Ansys DesignXplorer is an integrated Workbench application that leverages the persistent and automated power of Ansys Workbench for parametric analyses.


Ansys optiSLang is a design exploration and optimization tool integrated into Workbench that enables engineers and designers to improve and validate product designs with a minimum number of design points.

High-Performance Computing

High-performance computing (HPC) adds tremendous value to engineering simulation by enabling the creation of large, high-fidelity models that yield accurate and detailed insight into the performance of a proposed design.


Ansys EKM is a comprehensive, intuitive, end-to-end support system designed with a special focus on the scale, scope, and purpose of computer-aided engineering.


Ansys ACT helps you to customize the many powerful engineering simulation tools in Workbench to precisely fit your processes and needs.


Ansys Meshing is a general purpose, intelligent, automated high-performance product. It produces the most appropriate mesh for accurate, efficient multiphysics solutions.


Ansys EnSight is more than the leading post-processor and visualization software program: It is a data fusion program. It consolidates data from multiple engineering simulations and other sources to help explore and explain complex systems and processes. It handles simulation data from a wide range of physics from fluids, structures, particles, crash, electromagnetics, and more. Additionally, it imports data from experiments, wind tunnels, imaging systems like an MRI, and images & animations. .
