Episode 038: Simulating Multibody Dynamics More Accurately with ANSYS Motion

Episode 038: Simulating Multibody Dynamics More Accurately with ANSYS Motion

June 3, 2019

In this episode your host and Co-Founder of PADT, Eric Miller is joined by PADT's Senior Staff Technologist, Jim Peters for a discussion on the benefits of using ANSYS Motion to enable fast and accurate analysis of rigid and flexible bodies, and give accurate evaluation of physical events through the analysis of the mechanical system as a whole. ANSYS Motion uses four tightly integrated solving schemes: rigid body, flexible body, modal and mesh-free EasyFlex. This gives the user unparalleled capabilities to analyze systems and mechanisms in any desired combination.

Episode 035: The History of ANSYS - An Interview with Dr. John Swanson, author of the original program & founder of ANSYS Inc.

April 22, 2019

In this episode your host and Co-Founder of PADT, Eric Miller is joined by PADT's Ted Harris for a very special interview for users of ANSYS software, Dr. John Swanson. Dr. Swanson is known as the founder of "Swanson's Analysis Systems" in 1970; the company that would later be known to the public as ANSYS Inc. He also wrote the original ANSYS program in his home, and since leaving the company has gone on the work in philanthropy and alternative energy.

A John Fritz Medal winner, and member of the National Academy of Engineering, John is considered an authority and pioneer in the application of Finite Element methods to engineering. 

We are incredibly thankful that John was able to join us for this interview, and we hope you enjoy learning a little bit about the history of ANSYS from the founder himself.
