Altair simulation software delivers better cloud collaboration, efficient simulation workflows and AI-driven simulation design creation.
Altair, a computer science and artificial intelligence (AI) firm, unveils the latest updates to its simulation software, Simulation 2022.3. This release focuses on collaboration and cloud computing, end-to-end simulation workflows, and design creation with AI-powered simulation.
Collaboration and computing in the cloud
Simulation 2022.3 includes updates to Altair One – Altair’s Cloud Innovation Gateway – which allow the engineer to remove data silos, computer restrictions and access barriers. In addition, the new seamless digital thread way of working connects Altair One and Altair HyperWorks-Altair’s design and simulation platform-allow the designer to preview and modify models, track data, access online libraries and more. Best of all, engineers can do this and much more within a unique login ecosystem that’s available from anywhere.
Self-service access allows users to create dedicated high-performance computing (HPC) devices equipped with all the necessary simulation software. Users can create these private devices on the cloud provider of their choice, using the best computing hardware to run simulation solvers and applications that can run on GPU nodes to visualize fluid dynamics or bulk material simulations. All Altair One HPC computing devices include workload programmers that ensure optimal utilization of IT resources and faster response time.
Start to End Simulation Workflows
Simulation 2022.3 also brings new workflows and end-to-end capabilities in Altair HyperMesh, Inspire, SimLab, etc. Users can use Inspire Fluids to create, modify and change part shapes and assemblies that meet hydraulic design objectives. In addition, Inspire supports the Linux user interface and offers new geometry creation tools. And improvements in the design of electronic systems offer the possibility of more effective battery module modelling and thermal analysis of complex electronic systems.
Pre- and post-process solutions offer enhanced end-to-end workflows in HyperMesh, MotionSolve and SimLab to streamline product development. Exoskeleton is a new addition to the HyperMesh toolkit, facilitating faster concept exploration and detailed component design for optimal performance.
Superior designs thanks to simulation with AI
Engineers better capture expert decision-making to improve experiment design (DOE) results with Simulation 2022.3 features. In Altair DesignAI the properties of parts and elements can vary within a design scan and the expanded integration allows users to create general links between variables of any type and create responses from external file types. Other improvements increase efficiency by automatically updating models with design variables from any scan run.
