HyperWorks Partner Alliance Expands Composites Offering Further by Adding MultiMech Suite to the Program.
MultiMech Research & Development’s multiscale composite technology has been added to the HWPA’s CAE software solution set.
MultiMech Research & Development is the latest partner to join the HyperWorks Partner Alliance. Their software, MultiMech Suite, is a set of composite tools that allows users from many industries to analyze and optimize materials using its state-of-the-art two-way coupled multiscale technology. MultiMech Suite provides solutions to accurately and cost-efficiently relate materials’ microstructural design variables to overall structural performance. This helps solve problems related to mechanical failure and inefficient trial and error product development. To learn more about MultiMech R&D or MultiMech Suite, please visit their website.
Interview with Leandro Castro, Co-Founder of MultiMec h Research & Development
TES International is Broadening their Relationship with the HyperWorks Partner Alliance by Adding their Thermal- and Fluid-flow Analysis Software, ThermoFlo, to the Lineup.
ThermoFlo will further complete the HWPA’s thermal analysis offering by bringing a 1-D simulation capability to simplify the design testing process.
TES International, a thermal analysis software development company, has now added their software, ThermoFlo, to the lineup of software currently offered by the HyperWorks Partner Alliance (HWPA). ThermoFlo is a thermal and fluid flow analysis software package that has capabilities to solve thermal and flow problems for many different applications. It uses a 1-D systems modeling approach to allow for creation of a simpler, component-based model. This allows for geometrical changes to potentially be made as easily as changing a single value in the model, dramatically speeding up the prototyping and testing for interchanging different components in a system, or for tweaking the properties of the components. However, ThermoFlo is able to incorporate 3-D models into the systems for more detailed components.

Thermal analysis software, ElectroFlo, can now be downloaded on their website
The HWPA has launched a new partner, TES International. Their software, ElectroFlo, is an electronics cooling package that combines coupled thermal/electrical analysis with a user-friendly GUI to provide solutions for complex problems.
ElectroFlo is a great addition to the HWPA because it has CFD capabilities on top of its thermal analysis specialty, giving it the capacity to expand to other industries. TES will increase its traction in new markets as well as solidify its position in mature sectors by joining. Simultaneously, the HWPA’s users can utilize ElectroFlo with their existing HWU’s, thus increasing their return on investment within the HWPA. We are eager to watch TES grow within the program.
HyperWorks customers can access ESAComp composites modeling through the HWPA
Componeering Inc.’s software ESAComp is a composite modeling tool that aids engineers in the design and structural analysis of composites. It’s used from preliminary design to the more advanced analyses that are necessary for final design verification. Its comprehensive material database forms the basis for design studies. ESAComp has a vast set of analysis capabilities for laminates and sandwich constructions and it also includes micromechanical analyses. It further contains additional tools to address structural elements, including but not limited to cylinders, columns, and panels. This solution is available for immediate download through the HWPA website.
Amphenol is one of the largest manufacturers of interconnect products in the world. They has been using the HyperWorks range of applications since 2009. Amphenol was introduced to the HyperWorks Partner Alliance program when looking for complementary tools to handle molding simulations. The company is now able to provide its customers with more reliable and robust design concepts based on the results and reports generated with HyperWorks and the tools included in the HWPA.
HyperWorks users now have access to software to analyze fiber-reinforced parts
CONVERSE by PART Engineering provides users with highly reliable results in simulating short-fiber-reinforced injection molded parts as well as realistic simulation of thermo-mechanical behavior of molds and inserts. It enables the user to consider the anisotropic properties different properties parallel and transverse to the local fiber orientation in the part, as well as consider process loads that affect the inserts or the molds themselves. The highly accurate software improves the overall designs of molds and parts. This solution is available for download via the HWPA.
Model Animation for Hydraulic and Pneumatic System Simulation
DSHplus Model Animation displays the components symbols of fluid power systems with respect to their technical operating status. This can be achieved online during the simulation run or in a later offline result presentation. Thus DSHplus Model Animation serves as a valuable presentation tool to underline the work results, provides a deeper insight onto the system’s internal interactions, and makes it possible to use DSHplus even for didactic purposes.
DSHplus Model Animation can be switched on and off anytime during the simulation and comes with an animation player that enables the user to precisely monitor the systems behavior step by step or in slow motion. Last but not least DSHplus Model Animation is intuitive, simple, and provides all the required functions to bring true fluid power system understanding into the hands of fluid power engineers.
