Altair releases Simulation 2022.2 software update

1 min read

Altair, a specialist in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI), has announced the latest updates to its simulation portfolio, Simulation 2022.2.

These updates build on Simulation 2022.1 and look to improve Altair’s cloud elasticity and scalability, electrification, and product development capabilities.

Simulation 2022.2 provides users with flexible access to solutions, applications, data, and compute, allowing them to launch tools like Altair HyperMesh, HyperView, SimLab, and Inspire in browsers or on the desktop/laptop. Altair One is a turnkey marketplace that connects users, from any device at any time, to their solutions, data, teams, and compute infrastructure.

Users can now submit solver jobs covering structural, thermal, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and high/low frequency electromagnetics disciplines in Altair’s scalable, elastic cloud infrastructure, making it easier for organisations with limited IT and high-performance computing (HPC) resources to meet budgets and demand.

Moreover, self-service allows users to create pre-configured HPC appliances through a simple button click. Users can create these private appliances on their preferred cloud provider, allowing them to utilise computer hardware to run simulation solvers and applications that can be run on GPU nodes for visualising fluid dynamics or bulk and granular material simulations.

Access to Altair solutions through the Altair Units value-based licensing system manes that users will be able to maximise the power of existing HPC investments in-house, in the cloud, on-demand, and/or in hybrid approaches.

The latest software updates enable product teams to collaborate on all aspects of electronic systems, printed circuit board (PCB), firmware, and 5G connectivity development in a connected, end-to-end environment.

Simulation 2022.2 features tighter integration between Altair Flux, FluxMotor, SimLab, and Material Data Center helping users to streamline workflows and provide advanced modelling capabilities, electrical system design exploration and optimisation, and faster acoustic and thermal flow analysis. Debugging and post-production servicing updates are also available with Altair EEVision for electronic system design.

With Simulation 2022.2, organisations can now develop comprehensive workflows from concept to production in a single, unified environment to reduce development costs, organisational friction, time-to-market, waste, and material usage.

According to Altair, with Simulation 2022.2 users will see significant improvements to HyperWorks, HyperMesh, Altair Pulse, and HyperWorks CFD, enabling better modelling analysis through low- and no-code design and engineering tools, reduced pre- and post-processing lead times, improved surface modelling, integrated solver and dashboard capabilities, expanded fluid topology optimisation coupling with AcuSolve and EDEM.

Additionally, HyperWorks has been augmented with AI to enhance the modeling experience with automated part identification, characterization, and grouping as well as geometry feature recognition and management for use in downstream processes and further end user recommendations.
