ANSYS R12.0 Seminar


Post-Event Report

The ANSYS R12.0 Seminar organised by CAD-IT Consultants on 3 July 2009 saw the unveiling of the latest product release from ANSYS, Inc. Offering advanced simulation technology spanning all key engineering disciplines in an integrated software platform designed for Simulation Driven Product Development™, the ANSYS 12.0 suite encompasses a broad solver portfolio that spans a full range of functionality, from structural mechanics to fluid dynamics to thermal analysis to electromagnetics.


The seminar was graced by 150 distinguished participants from diverse industries and disciplines, encompassing Renewable Energy, Water Technology, HVAC, Electronics, Marine/ Offshore, Oil & Gas, Aerospace, Automotive, Defence and Consumer Products amongst many others.


The seminar started with the Welcome Address by Mr. Terence Chan, CEO of CAD-IT Consultants. He regaled the audience with stories about the company’s formative years, and announced the expansion of CAD-IT’s portfolio of total IT solutions with the imminent addition of some cutting-edge software.


The seminar proper began with Mr. Timothy Kwan, CAD-IT’s Regional Business Manager, gave an overview of the updated features in ANSYS 12.0. With the audience’s interest heightened, Mr. Timothy Kwan continued by detailing the enhancements in ANSYS Workbench 2.0. The seamless integration of core applications – such as ANSYS Mechanical, FLUENT and CFX – on a single platform allows users to couple multiple physics in their analyses.

Mr. Timothy Kwan, CAD-IT's Regional Business Manager, introducing the new features in ANSYS 12.0.



Dr. Wendy Kurniawan, Applications Engineer from CAD-IT, introduced the significant improvements in ANSYS’ Structural Mechanics Solutions, particularly in elements, materials, contact and solver performance, along with linear, rigid, and flexible dynamics. Dr. Ma Shengwei, Applications Engineer from CAD-IT, then elucidated the enhancements in ANSYS’ Fluid Dynamics Solutions. By incorporating meshing, post-processing or the best-in-class CFD solvers FLUENT and CFX on the Workbench platform, users can perform their analyses more effectively.


CAD-IT was also honoured to have Mr. Jerald Cheong, Technical Specialist from Microsoft, which was the seminar’s main sponsor, address the audience. His presentation on “Scaling Up Engineering Analysis using Windows HPC Server 2008” enabled the audience to gain useful information on how to improve their simulation performances with the implementation of Microsoft HPC solutions.
