ANSYS, Inc. is an engineering simulation software provider. It develops general-purpose finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics software. While ANSYS has developed a range of computer-aided engineering (CAE) products, it is perhaps best known for its ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Multiphysics products.

ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Multiphysics software are non exportable analysis tools incorporating pre-processing (geometry creation, meshing), solver and post-processing modules in a graphical user interface. These are general-purpose finite element modeling packages for numerically solving mechanical problems, including static/dynamic structural analysis (both linear and non-linear), heat transfer and fluid problems, as well as acoustic and electro-magnetic problems.

ANSYS Mechanical technology incorporates both structural and material non-linearities. ANSYS Multiphysics software includes solvers for thermal, structural, CFD, electromagnetics, and acoustics and can sometimes couple these separate physics together in order to address multidisciplinary applications. ANSYS software can also be used in civil engineering, electrical engineering, physics and chemistry.

ANSYS, Inc. acquired the CFX computational fluid dynamics code in 2003 and Fluent, Inc. in 2006. The CFD packages from ANSYS are used for engineering simulations. In 2008, ANSYS acquired Ansoft Corporation, a leading developer of high-performance electronic design automation (EDA) software, and added a suite of products designed to simulate high-performance electronics designs found in mobile communication and Internet devices, broadband networking components and systems, integrated circuits, printed circuit boards, and electromechanical systems. The acquisition allowed ANSYS to address the continuing convergence of the mechanical and electrical worlds across a whole range of industry sectors.
