News ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that the global shipbuilding company Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (SHI) in Seoul, Korea has selected ANSYS technology to improve the quality and fluid dynamics of their tankers, vessels and other products.

SHI contracted with the ANSYS channel partner Advanced Technology Engineering Service Co., Ltd. (ATES) in Korea for 128 parallel licenses of ANSYS computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software. This is the largest parallel license add-on ever completed in the Korean shipbuilding industry.

SHI, one of the world's largest shipbuilding companies, investigated CFD analysis solutions to increase their ship design quality and fluid dynamic technology with the goal of reducing the design time and the cost for new products. The investigating team felt that ANSYS technology showed the best results; in addition, they were satisfied with the technical support and customer care provided by ATES.

"Shipbuilders must respond quickly to changing customer requirements. In addition, increasing trade with China has seen demand increase for both high-speed and larger vessels. To satisfy owners' requirements quickly, SHI is investing heavily in advanced computer-aided engineering (CAE) solutions, including ANSYS. Many commercial CFD codes were tested, but ANSYS showed the best results, and we are satisfied with the technical support and customer care provided by ATES," said C.B. Hong, a research engineer at SHI's R&D center.

As CFD software has matured, SHI believes that ship design based on CFD simulation is one of the most important steps to ensure that a design meets the customer's requirements for design and quality.

"We are delighted to complete this contract with SHI, which is truly a world-class shipbuilding company," said B.Y. Kim, sales manager for ATES. "We intend to provide SHI with generous high-quality support to ensure that SHI gets the very best out of its software from ANSYS and to further increase usage of this technology with SHI."

"Our company has a long history of providing engineering simulation solutions in South Korea. The increased use of ANSYS CFD tools for shipbuilding design by SHI is another example of how a leading Korean company is relying more and more on ANSYS technology to remain dominant in its field," said Ferit Boysan, vice president and general manager at ANSYS, Inc.

"SHI chose to increase its usage of ANSYS software because their engineers were confident in being able to rely on our technology and our company vision. Whether customers use our solutions for hull design or applications involving fluid structure interaction, ANSYS provides a comprehensive range of software products that are unbeatable."
