Description

Benefits

Meshing Capabilities

Open-Architecture Design
Combining the broadest set of direct CAD and CAE interfaces with user-defined integrations, HyperMesh fits seamlessly within any simulation environment.

High-Speed, High-Quality Meshing
Streamlines the modelling process and provides a suite of tools to model even the most complex geometries.

One Integrated CAE Environment
Modern, configurable, and easy-to-use graphical user interface provides seamless data exchange for pre- and post-processing.

Advanced 3D Model Visualization
3D visualization of all element types (1D, 2D and 3D elements) within an FEA model eases model checking and visual verification.

Increases End-User Modeling Efficiency Using sophisticated batch meshing technology, HyperMesh eliminates the need to perform manual geometry clean-up and meshing, thus accelerating the model development process.

Composites Modeling Ply and laminate entities facilitate composites modelling in terms of individual layer shapes and their stacking sequence. CATIA CPD and Fibersim readers extract composite data and map it onto FE meshes automatically. Plies and ply angles can be visualized in 3D for easier model verification.

Advanced Model Morphing Delivering the most powerful model morphing tool in the industry, HyperMesh allows users to modify existing meshes to meet new designs and reduce model development costs.

HyperMesh presents an advanced suite of easy-to-use tools to build and edit CAE models. For 2D and 3D model creation, users have access to a variety of mesh generation capabilities, as well as HyperMesh’s powerful automeshing module.

Surface Meshing
The surface meshing module in HyperMesh contains a robust engine for mesh generation that provides unparalleled flexibility and functionality. This includes the ability to interactively adjust a variety of mesh parameters, optimize a mesh based on a set of user-defined quality criteria, and create a mesh using a wide range of advanced techniques.

Solid Meshing
Using solid geometry, HyperMesh can utilize both standard and advanced procedures to connect, separate or split solid models for tetra-meshing or hexa-meshing. Partitioning these models is fast and easy when combined with HyperMesh's powerful visualization features for solids. This allows less time spent preparing geometries for solid meshing. The solidmeshing module quickly generates high-quality meshes for multiple volumes.

Case Studies

Sujan CooperStandard manufactures (anti-vibration) NVH products for leading automotive companies. Currently, the automotive industry is under extreme pressure because of environmental norms and has to adhere to stringent government policies related to pollution control and one of the simplest ways to address these is to optimize designs and reduce weight of products and components. They began using Altair HyperWorks on the on the recommendation of their joint venture partner CooperStandard. The team decided to improvise design of their Torsion Vibration Damper using Altair solutions like solidThinking Inspire to optimize designs of the brackets and OptiStruct for structural integrity of the designs. Altair solutions have helped Sujan CooperStandard get their product designs right the first time and consistently meet their time, cost and quality targets.
