ANSYS is a computer-aided engineering (CAE) software used mainly in engineering simulations. This software is widely used by companies to predict the behaviour of their products in the real world. With this finite element analysis software, users can change physical constraints to simulate tests that would otherwise be impossible or impractical to perform.

DTU provides the ANSYS installation files for Windows and for Linux.

You can download ANSYS installation files here.

Installation instructions are available as a .pdf file on the downloads page.
