ALTAIR LAUNCHES SR1 OF HYPERWORKS 8.0 CAE SOFTWARE SUITE.

Altair Engineering, 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 (CAE) 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 businesses. Altair has phased the deployment of these new websites throughout its global operations over the course of four weeks.

HyperWorks provides a highly integrated suite of advanced engineering simulation software 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) 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 that improves usability and workflow; a command line-driven database; and enhanced solver support, including additional MDL 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 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.
