ALTAIR LAUNCHES SR1 OF HYPERWORKS 8.0 CAE SOFTWARE SUITE.Altair Engineering Altair Engineering is a product design and development, engineering software and grid computing software company. Altair was founded by Jim Scapa, George Christ, and Mark Kistner in 1985. Over its history, it has had various locations near Detroit, Michigan, USA. , Inc., Troy, Mich., a leading global provider of technology and services that empower client innovation and decision-making, has launched the SR1 service release of the Altair HyperWorks 8.0 computer-aided engineering See CAE.
Any use of computer software to solve engineering problems. With the improvement of graphics displays, engineering workstations, and graphics standards, computer-aided engineering (CAE) has come to mean the computer (CAE (1) (Computer-Aided Engineering) Software that analyzes designs which have been created in the computer or that have been created elsewhere and entered into the computer. ) technology suite. At the same time, the company has unveiled its new family of websites to support Altair's corporate ventures and its rapidly growing engineering software, product innovation consulting and on-demand computing See utility computing. businesses. Altair has phased the deployment of these new websites throughout its global operations Global Operations is a first-person shooter computer game developed by Barking Dog Studios and published by both Crave Entertainment and Electronic Arts. It was released in March of 2002, following its public multiplayer beta version which contained only the Quebec map. over the course of four weeks.

HyperWorks provides a highly integrated suite of advanced engineering simulation software Simulation software is based on the process of imitating a real phenomenon with a set of mathematical formulas. It is, essentially, a program that allows the user to observe an operation through simulation without actually running the program. tools that increase efficiency and reduce cycle time needed to develop innovative, robust products. In addition to a rich set of product family enhancements, the HyperWorks 8.0 SR1 release includes the commercial release of HyperView and MotionView, as well as the addition of RADIOSS to HyperWorks and the Altair patented HyperWorks Unit (HWU HWU Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, Scotland)
HWU Hey, What's Up? (chat) ) licensing system; 64-bit Linux support; and two new safety-performance related product introductions: HyperCrash and HyperStudyDSS.
HyperView(R) - High-Performance, Solver-Neutral Results Visualization Environment
HyperView 8.0 introduces Smart Memory Management, which significantly improves animation speed and memory management to easily handle multimillion-element models on both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.
MotionView(R) - The Leading Open-Systems Multi-Body Dynamics Modeling Environment
MotionView 8.0 delivers a new graphical user interface graphical user interface (GUI)
Computer display format that allows the user to select commands, call up files, start programs, and do other routine tasks by using a mouse to point to pictorial symbols (icons) or lists of menu choices on the screen as opposed to having to that improves usability and workflow; a command line-driven database; and enhanced solver support, including additional MDL MDL - (Originally "Muddle"). C. Reeve, Carl Hewitt and Gerald Sussman, Dynamic Modeling Group, MIT ca. 1971. Intended as a successor to Lisp, and a possible base for Planner-70. Basically LISP 1.5 with data types and arrays. entities and contact modeling, as well as enhanced interfaces to ADAMS and ABAQUS.
RADIOSS(R) - A Proven Transient, Dynamic Solver to Simulate Real-World Performance
Acquired by Altair in September 2006, RADIOSS is a finite-element solver technology for explicit or implicit analysis. Over the past 20 years, RADIOSS has become the nonlinear solver of choice for leading manufacturers, government agencies and researchers. RADIOSS is now available under Altair's HWU licensing system, further increasing the value proposition of HyperWorks.
HyperCrash(TM) - A Highly-Tuned Modeling Environment for Crash and Safety Analysis
HyperCrash is a tailored pre-processing technology specifically designed to automate the creation of high-fidelity models for crash analysis and safety evaluation. Developed in cooperation with the industry's leading manufacturers, HyperCrash increases departmental efficiency and results accuracy through process-driven workflows and automated model-checking and correction.
HyperStudyDSS(TM) - A Multi-Run Study Environment for Crash and Safety Analysis
HyperStudyDSS is a powerful and efficient crash simulation A crash simulation is a virtual recreation of a destructive crash test of a car using a computer simulation in order to examine the level of safety of the car and its occupants. study tool with design of experiments (DOE) and optimization capabilities. With an efficient and user-friendly graphical user interface, HyperStudy enables engineers to quickly identify material parameters, validate simulations and virtually evaluate designs for crash-test ratings. Leveraging best-in-class post- processing, data mining and optimization methods, HyperStudyDSS helps users to rapidly understand and improve vehicle crash performance.
