To design and optimise high-performance, efficient, and innovative products, Altair offers new technologies with the release of HyperWorks 2017. This latest release sees several functionalities added in areas such as model-based development, electromagnetism, non-linear structural analysis, modelling and meshing, multiphysics and multi-disciplinary analysis, lightweight design and optimisation.
New products and enhancement highlights include:
James P. Dagg, Chief Technical Officer, User Experience at Altair said: “HyperWorks 2017 adds key enhancements to the modeling and assembly capabilities of the software. Users can now communicate directly with their enterprise PLM system, storing libraries of parts and configurations of their models. Tasks like setting up a model with multiple configurations for different disciplines can now be done in minutes.”
In terms of computational performance, FEKO, OptiStruct, and RADIOSS leverage the most modern computer architectures and latest parallelisation technology to generate solutions faster and make them more scalable on compute clusters.
“With the HyperWorks 2017 release we followed our vision to continue focusing on simulation-driven innovation. We are now able to simulate more physics with improved HPC performance,” said Uwe Schramm, Chief Technical Officer, Solvers and Optimisation at Altair. “In particular, with the addition of Flux for low-frequency EM simulation, we’re offering a complete multiphysics portfolio all linked through optimisation.”
