HyperWorks HW11.0.132-HWDesktop contains enhancements and bug fixes to the desktop applications HyperMesh, HyperView and HyperGraph.
HW-11.0.420-HyperCrash contains new features, bug fixes and new keywords support for Radioss and LS-Dyna. See the release notes for full details. This patch is compatible with HyperCrash 11.0, HW11.0-401 and .HW11.0-402.
The HyperWorks 12.0 beta testing program has started!
The program has two main objectives:
- To provide you with an early look at the features that will be coming in the new release
- To help us make sure that the new software will work properly in your environment
Are you interested in participating to the program, testing our pre-release software at your site? Please contact your local Altair representative.

Coupling simulations from different domains is becoming increasingly important, considering the evolution of CAE toward multi-physics problems. As an example, utilizing residual stress/strain as well as thinning information from metal-forming simulation is gaining rapid acceptance in the structural CAE community. Most of the time, components of full-car crash models are defined independently from any residual stresses and strains, and thicknesses are considered as nominal, whereas a lot of these ones have been manufactured thru stamping or bending processes.
To neglect these initial conditions leads to inaccurately capture the material response under structural loading, which is especially true with advanced high strength materials, which are gaining more usage for weight reduction.
Similar needs can be seen in a variety of other simulation domains. To transfer data between CFD and structural CAE is also realized in aircraft wing design process. CFD analysis is used to evaluate the wind pressure, which has to be passed on to the structural analysis model to evaluate stresses. However, the mesh for CFD and structural analysis are different so that it is necessary to map the data via interpolation between the two meshes. Similarly, in electronic cooling systems, heat transfer analysis often is followed by a structural analysis, which uses a different mesh, to evaluate distortions.
We are seeing a growing number of customers coupling their simulation results with structural CAE making the development of robust, efficient and accurate mapping tools very important.
SimLab 10.0 Released
SimLab is a process oriented, feature based finite element modeling software that allows you to quickly and accurately simulate engineering behavior of complex assemblies. SimLab automates simulation-modeling tasks to reduce human errors and time spent manually creating finite element models and interpreting results. SimLab is not a traditional off the shelf Pre and Post processing software but a vertical application development platform to capture and automate simulation processes.
HyperCrash is a robust pre-processing environment, specifically designed to automate the creation of high-fidelity models for crash analysis and safety evaluation. It supports both the RADIOSS and LS-DYNA interfaces and their coverage keeps expanding.
HW-11.0.402-HyperCrash contains many exciting features, enhancements and bug fixes for HyperCrash. Reference the release notes for full details.
HW-10.1-SA1-206-HWsolvers and HW-10.0-SA1-206-HWsolvers were released last week. These updates contain enhancements and bug fixes to HyperWorks Solvers suite including RADIOSS, MotionSolve, HyperXtrude, and OptiStruct. See the release notes for full details.

Engineering analysts are continually being asked to get more done in less time. In addition, they are overwhelmed with learning to use many individual tools that claim the ability to perform a specific task or component of a job. This further drives the need for one integrated suite of tools that can use the same licensing system to complete a process from start to finish. To address this need, Altair has implemented many complete processes that are flexible and configurable with the Altair HyperWorks Suite.
