Altair shares the latest updates to its simulation portfolio, Simulation 2022.1. These updates apply advanced simulation, cloud-based computing and optimization for sustainable product lifecycles. Simulation 2022.1 helps companies meet corporate social responsibility (CSR) objectives and bring open-source technology to users worldwide.
Simulation 2022.1 brings updates to Altair Material Data Center, OptiStruct, Multiscale Designer, HyperWorks and SimLab that will help companies meet their lightweighting objectives, design requirements and regulatory requirements. These updates also bolster Altair’s topology optimization, lightweighting, design certification and high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities.
In Simulation 2022.1, enhancements have been introduced to Altair Inspire for an improved design creation and optimization experience, as well as updates to Altair SimSolid for faster simulation, reviewing design scenarios and parametric modeling upgrades.
This update enriches Altair’s modeling and visualization capabilities. A new HyperWorks workflow streamlines the process of building a reduced order model for early conceptual optimization. Simulation 2022.1 lets users simplify models and perform topology optimization with quicker turnaround times, facilitating more design studies. Simulation 2022.1 also strengthens model interpretation with 1D inflation capabilities.
Additionally, Altair Radioss is available as an open-source solver—called OpenRadioss—that will bring together a community of experts and users.
Further, Simulation 2022.1 brings additional open-source updates. Within the new UI Designer toolkit in Inspire, users can assemble designs with predefined objects, modify and save designs as a Python code skeleton that can be developed.
The latest update encourages users to use Altair Exchange, a collaborative forum where users can use shared spaces for fine-tuning models, finding better scripts and optimizing virtual workspaces and workflows.
