The HyperWorks 2018 suite contains HyperWorks and Inspire 2018 products, bundled with HW Desktop v2017.2 + 2017.2.4_hotfix that support HW Solvers 2018. These packages, including the hotfix updates, can be installed using the HyperWorks 2018 Master installer.
In addition, HW 2018 contains Altair Flux and Altair WinProp, two new products. The full list of the products and the supported documents are available on the HW 2018 download page list.
VWT 2018 introduces an all new Virtual Wind Tunnel application custom built for use with the ultraFluidX solver.
Altair ultraFluidX 2018, released earlier this month, is a substantial update of version 2017 that has seamless integration with Virtual Wind Tunnel and Altair HyperWorks. It uses HWU licensing and draws units based on the number of GPU’s.
Altair nanoFluidX™ is a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH)-based fluid dynamics simulation tool which predicts flow in complex geometries exposed to complex motion.
Altair ElectroFlo is a thermal package to simulate challenging electronics cooling and other EDA design applications. Easy to use even for non-CFD experts, it is capable of solving complex problems involving conduction, natural and forced convection, radiation and conjugate heat transfer.
