Altair broadens CAE platform
Altair Engineering has released Altair HyperWorks 10.0, said to be an even more powerful version of its integrated computer-aided engineering (CAE) software suite. Included in the suite is RADIOSS 10.0, an implicit and explicit solver technology for linear, nonlinear and crashworthiness problems, that delivers new element formulations that enable analyses to be completed up to 7x faster than before.
MotionSolve 10.0, HyperWorks’ modern mechanical system simulation solution, introduces co-simulation capabilities with Simulink control systems and also with DSHplus hydraulic/pneumatic systems by FLUIDON, a HyperWorks Enabled Partner. Co-simulation allows analysis of the coupled interaction between mechanical systems with other systems to better understand system level behavior.
Also, with the 10.0 release, MotionSolve now calculates more than 90 different Suspension Design Factors (SDF). The suite’s optimization products, OptiStruct and HyperStudy, introduce structural optimization innovations that include: optimization for combined structural and multi-body dynamics problems; and new acoustic optimization and combined thermal/mechanical optimization.
