Altair Engineering (Troy, Mich.) has released HyperWorks 12.0, which offers new functions and end-user productivity advancements in product optimization, finite element modeling, multiphysics analysis, powertrain durability analysis, lightweight design and others. Features and upgrades include the following:

  • Improvements to model browsers, a new streamlined user profile for quick model setup (BasicFEA) and support for 3-D visualization (HyperView).
  • Various meshing functions for shell and solid meshing, such as a midplane mesh generator with automatic thickness mapping from complex solid CAD geometry and the addition of quality-control mechanisms (HyperMesh).
  • A variety of model-assembly methods, including an method for automated connectors generation, for faster assembly of complex models.
  • Enhanced interoperability of CAD import and export, composites interfacing and collaborative simulation data management.
  • Powertrain durability and large-scale noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) analysis and optimization.
  • Explicit and implicit finite element analysis.
  • Cosimulation with third-party components for multibody analysis (MotionSolve).
  • A new Ffowcs-Williams-Hawkings acoustic solver that accurately predicts noise levels at distant microphone locations (AcuSolve).
