>Simulation is an increasingly important part of product design where the ultimate goal is design optimization. After completing a simulation on a baseline design, it is common for engineers to perform the same simulation on multiple design iterations, under varying operating conditions, to identify which design delivers optimum performance. The combination of multiple design iterations and operating conditions requires engineers to run tens — or even hundreds of simulations to identify the optimal design. Setting each simulation up manually can be very time-consuming and expensive.>
With ANSYS AIM, you can re-use the baseline simulation to automatically run simulations for additional design iterations simply by using a consistent naming convention. The example below shows how you can do his by considering four design variations of a water mixing junction.

In a high school classroom, we battle constantly against a storm of changing technologies, competing educational needs, time and materials. As technology advances and industries change, educators do their best to keep students competitive and prepared for these changes. It becomes increasingly difficult, though, to develop meaningful challenges for students because of the cost of materials and other resources.
At the same time, it is challenging to justify the time and importance of your content against other subjects in the school, such as math or science. With the power of ANSYS AIM and ANSYS SpaceClaim, the technology education classroom has been given an important tool to fight back against the storm.
