What is the actual difference between Multiphysics and Workbench? As mentioned in ANSYS site that these are products of ANSYS suite. Are all of these part of a single package or Multiphysics is some specialized type of ANSYS package solely for a particular job? Does it include workbench?

I having been using ansys for just 6-7 months now and from what I can tell , the more specific you are about the final outcome of your analysis , the more you will use ansys APDL .Also , it offers you you the ability to code your simulation , thus reducing total workload and increasing efficiency and it offers you more control over the solution process too.

I dont know more about this but Workbench seems to offer you more control over your mesh as compared to APDL ( multi ).

Workbench is simply the interface to manage the projects. Workbench comes with the software.

Multiphysics is a particular suite of analyses for which one can have a license. Check out the capabilities in the first column of the Capabilities Chart at
