Model Reduction inside ANSYS

Model reduction (MOR) is a powerful feature of ANSYS Mechanical in which linear FE models are automatically reduced. Despite the significant reduction in the number of degrees of freedom and hence the computation time, the reduced model provides the same dynamic behavior. The reduced matrix system can be directly read into the common tools for system simulation such as ANSYS Simplorer or MATLAB / Simulink.

The method is well suited to the thermal, piezoelectric, thermo-mechanical and acoustic models.

Application examples include

  • Thermal model of power electronics
  • Thermal model of Battery Packs
  • Piezoelectric model
