Ansys Engineering Simulation Software


Ansys is the gold standard for any engineering simulation need, providing a comprehensive suite of products to accurately simulate the structural, fluid, thermal and electromagnetic performance of products and processes.

As an engineering consultancy offering advanced services in simulation, analysis and design, Ansys is a pivotal asset that helps us to deliver innovative, efficient and reliable solutions to our clients.

From projects that require intricate multiphysics simulations to those that need end-to-end design, analysis and optimisation, having direct access to this unified platform means that we can meet our client’s requirements with greater precision and efficiency.


Why we use Ansys

At DOCAN, we want to bring unrivalled value to our client’s projects in every way possible, and more often than not that means employing the best software in the industry to guarantee a more efficient project lifecycle.

Ansys is globally recognised for its advanced simulation and modelling capabilities, allowing us to conduct complex analyses and virtual testing across a wide range of disciplines. From structural and thermal analysis to fluid dynamics and electromagnetic simulations, we can explore and validate our client’s design concepts in a virtual environment.

The all-encompassing software means we can seamlessly take projects to the next stage, conducting design explorations and realistic virtual prototyping all within one platform. Being able to iterate through numerous design variations, we can identify the most efficient and cost-effective solutions for our clients ensuring that the designs are robust and reliable.

Key capabilities

Ansys offers a wide range of capabilities across various engineering disciplines, including:

  • Structural analysis – linear and nonlinear including static, dynamic and transient
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations – including fluid flow, heat transfer and aerodynamics
  • Electromagnetics – comprehensive analysis of electromagnetic fields, including static and dynamic simulations
  • Thermal analysis – simulating steady-state and transient thermal conditions, assessing temperature distribution, heat conduction, and radiation
  • Acoustic simulations – including structural acoustics and vibroacoustic analysis
  • Multiphysics simulations – coupling of multiple physics simulations for analysis involving fluid-structure interaction, thermal-electromagnetic coupling and more
  • Explicit dynamics – simulating high-speed and transient dynamic events such as impact and crash simulations

All of the above and more make Ansys a versatile and comprehensive simulation platform that is an indispensable tool to us as a multidisciplinary consultancy. As we work across many high-integrity industries including oil & gas, nuclear, aerospace and more, the accuracy of calculations and data within Ansys ensures that all designs meet safety and performance requirements no matter the industry.

How we can use Ansys software to help with your project

We have unrivalled experience working within the fields of engineering simulation, analysis and design, offering both the in-house expertise and tools needed to achieve project success.

Whilst we don’t rely solely on tools, the strategic utilisation of software such as Ansys combined with manual calculations and our wide-ranging engineering expertise enables us to enhance the overall success and profitability of a project and deliver competitive solutions.

What’s more, we’re not tied to any one software which means we’ll always leverage the right tools for the job. For example, if your project requires both 1D and 3D analysis, we can combine the powerful technologies of both Flownex and Ansys Fluent to create a quicker, more efficient and more accurate process.

Exceeding client expectations is what we do, and we believe that there is no engineering challenge too complex to overcome. Whether you need a team of experts to optimise your product development process or improve the robustness of an existing design, we can help.
