Altair HyperWorks Desktop Release Notes
Various changes have been made to the Altair HyperWorks 2018 software package including the Altair HyperWorks products, hardware support, installation, and invoking process.
- Altair Flux
In a global context of design process optimization and time-to-market reduction, Altair Flux brings innovative solutions capitalizing on 35 years of electromagnetic simulation in an open and user-friendly interface. Altair Flux is a finite element and PEEC software for low-frequency electromagnetic and thermal simulations, in 2D, 3D & Skew. Altair Flux can easily be coupled to other Altair software for multiphysics couplings, and provides the most accurate analysis of your devices and systems.
- Altair Inspire
Altair Inspire is a breakthrough in digital product development delivering simulation-driven design tools in a friendly and intuitive environment. Design engineers and architects use Altair Inspire software to generate and explore structurally efficient concepts in the earliest phases of the design process. Using Altair’s award winning Altair OptiStruct optimization solver as its engine, Altair Inspire software generates the ideal shape for a design given the package space, material properties and the loading requirements. Leveraging the tool consistently results in decreased design cycle time as well as significant material and weight savings.
- Altair Feko + Altair WinProp
For HWU licensing, the Altair Feko installation for Windows includes Altair WinProp. Altair Feko is a powerful and comprehensive 3D simulation package intended for the analysis of a wide range of electromagnetic radiation and scattering problems. Applications include antenna design, antenna placement, microstrip antennas and circuits, dielectric media, scattering analysis, electromagnetic compatibility studies including cable harness modelling and many more. Altair WinProp, the standard in wave propagation analysis and radio network planning, is the most complete suite of tools in the domain of wireless propagation and radio network planning. With applications ranging from satellite to terrestrial, from rural via urban to indoor radio links, Altair WinProp’s innovative wave propagation models combine accuracy with short computation times.
- Altair ConnectMe
Altair ConnectMe is a tool that provides a window based launcher, Altair software update alerts, and Altair news. It provides a single place to search, filter, launch, and update Altair products.
