Ansys Discovery: Standard in Simulation

Ansys Discovery is the new standard for product development. By using a single tool, all parties involved in the development process can quickly design, experiment and validate ideas with high accuracy. Existing limits vanish. The efficiency in product development improves radically.

Ansys Discovery – the All-in-One Tool

Sketch out ideas, simulate them and generate precise validation all in one tool supported by an intuitive user guidance.


  • Simplify
  • Parameterization
  • Direct modeling for fast design iterations


  • Understand designs quickly
  • Interactive live simulation
  • Trendfinder


  • Validate designs with higher reliability
  • Mesh refinement to resolve critical areas


The following videos will give you an insight into the new concept of MODEL-EXPLORE-ANALYZE with Ansys Discovery.

Ansys Discovery equips our team with a much better understanding of the physics behind our products very early in the design process, enabling them to meet customer requirements more precisely, avoid overengineering and eliminate uncertainties. This has resulted in improved product performance, increased design efficiency and shortened product development cycles.

Discovery helps to find the right geometry quickly – and, incidentally, right at the beginning of an idea …

Ansys Discovery allows us to test new ideas in the concept phase and estimate their impact. The high calculation speed also allows the software to be used during discussions and meetings. The development process can be accelerated by days to weeks as a result.

Understanding physics – designing better

We would like to give an introduction to the book "Physik begreifen - besser konstruieren", which contains eight recipes for better designing, thanks to Physics-Driven-Design. These are not simply design rules.

Your book presentation has encouraged us to use the software Discovery in the context of the lecture Fluid Mechanics, which is being redesigned. After all, we see the potential in it to make the physical basics comprehensible to the students in a clear and sustainable way.

The recipes are based on years of experience in the design office and on an explainable physics background. Why does it work better to make a design tension-dominant instead of bend-dominant? How do you best distribute the stiffness in order to obtain an optimal flow of forces? What happens at points where you redirect a flow and how can you control this with the least loss?

This book is a joint project of (calculation) experts from the engineering office, Brand Engineering GmbH and CADFEM.
