After an OEM partnership with Ansys, RBF Morph has two proprietary products featured in Ansys' simulation offerings: Ansys RBF Morph Fluids and Ansys RBF Morph Structures.

The two simulation tools are based on more than 10 years of experience with global customers, including OEMs in the automotive and aerospace industries.

Radial Basis Functions (RBF), is a technique used to modify or deform a geometric mesh while maintaining its overall structure and characteristics. This approach is crucial in developing safety-critical complex applications in the automotive, aerospace, and medical industries. Thanks to mesh morphing, companies can substantially reduce computational time while performing highly automated design optimisation analysis, increasing products' reliability and performance while cutting costs, delivery time and environmental impact.

Today's products represent cutting-edge mesh morphing technology that can help companies optimise their products and achieve optimal efficiency within the Ansys simulation platform.

Ansys RBF Morph Fluids is an add-on that allows for automated shape optimisation studies entirely within Ansys Fluent, leveraging morphing of the existing mesh. This new approach takes advantage of Ansys Fluent's CFD technology and overcomes the limits of the mainstream methods by implementing dedicated morphing routines directly into Ansys Fluent's CFD code.

Ansys RBF Morph Structures is an ACT extension that allows for automated shape optimisation studies entirely within Ansys Mechanical and Ansys Workbench by morphing the existing mesh.

“Thanks to our partnership with RBF Morph, Ansys can offer users an advanced solution for mesh morphing that integrates seamlessly into the Ansys platform," said Prith Banerjee, Chief Technology Officer at Ansys. "These state-of-the-art tools are able to address the most challenging applications in any industry using the predictive power of simulation.”

"We have been proudly serving Ansys users since 2009," said Marco Evangelos Biancolini, RBF Morph's Founder and CTO. "We started with CFD, an Add-On for Fluent and since then we gradually expanded our integration within the Ansys product family: Ansys Mechanical, Design Explorer, Twin Builder, optiSLang and LS-DYNA. Today we have two solutions fully integrated with Ansys Fluids and Ansys Structures to enable the best multi-physics optimisation and digital twin creation."
