What is HyperWorks software used for?

  • Analysis and optimization
    Altair OptiStruct, Radioss, MotionSolve, HyperLife and SimSolid are designed for structural analysis of structures and advanced product optimalization. Discover the most stressed areas in products and find out how to optimize, strengthen and improve the product. When developing the product, use also a multi-physics approach and analyze your product from the point of view of thermal stress and fluid flow (AcuSolve, nanoFluidX, ultraFluidX) or interaction with bulk materials (EDEM), from the point of view of electromagnetism (Flux, Feko) or electronic PCB design (Pollex). And at the top benefit from the highest level of simulation – multicriteria and multi-physical studies and optimization with the help of HyperStudy.
  • Modeling and visualization
    3D modeling and preparation of finite-element mesh and solver-decks is carried out using the preprocessing software, or tools for the preparation of finite-element and multi-body models for subsequent calculation. Pre-processing is covered by HyperMesh, HyperCrash, MotionView and SimLab. Post-processing tools HyperView, HyperGraph 2D/3D or HyperStudy are suitable for analyzing the calculation results, data visualization and easy interpretation thereof.
  • Simulation Driven Design
    Altair SimSolid software and Altair Inspire product family are used for simulation processes as part of conceptual product development. The Simulation-driven Design concept enables engineers to design the optimal shape of components directly according to load requirements, perform very fast analysis of different solution variants, make quick decisions and find the optimal solutions.
  • Cloud and HPC solutions
    Altair makes it possible to use software tools based on on-premise IT infrastructure as well as through cloud service. Use the hardware appliance HyperWorks Unlimited or the technologies of High-performance Computing in cloud environment for modeling and calculations of the PBS Works Professional technology (optimal planning of tasks and utilization of IT resources).
  • Altair Partner Alliance
    In addition to Altair tools, it is possible to use also third-party software within the Altair Partner Alliance licensing program. For example, we offer fluid dynamics analysis software (CFD), EM field simulation, fatigue and structural life calculations, and a range of industry-specific tools. By using the comprehensive package of programs within the flexible Altair licensing system, the user significantly saves costs in the CAE process.

A high-performance pre-processing tool capable of preparing even the largest and most complex models for a variety of multi-physical analyzes. It became a leader among preprocessors and thanks to its universality and efficient creation of high quality FEM mesh it is often used also in combination with solvers of other vendors. In addition to the standard methods of creating 3D meshes, HyperMesh also offers advanced meshing methods, especially for modifying an existing mesh. For this purpose, HyperMesh has a full range of editing tools. You can then very effectively make geometric model changes such as adding / editing ribs, adding / removing screw holes. It is also easy to refine the mesh in the critical points of the structure.

Altair License System

Licenses of Altair software tools are provided via tokens called Altair Units (successor to HyperWorks Units and solidThinking Units). It is a patented highly flexible, scalable and cost-effective license model.

License units are concurrent and sharable by different users in different locations within the entire license region (in our case the whole EMEA), there is a leveling system (when using other tools and solvers it does not increase the consumption of units) and you can choose from several application packages to optimize cost (role-based packages for a mechanical engineer, a concept engineer, a CAE engineer or a specialist in mechatronics or multi-physical applications).

And with Altair One solutions and services, the license units are also applicable to High-performance & Cloud computing.
