Automotive software company, Altair, has released updates to its simulation package, under the name Simulation 2022.3. These updates focus on cloud collaboration and computing, efficient end-to-end simulation workflows, and improved design creation with AI-powered simulation.
Simulation 2022.3 brings updates to Altair One – Altair’s Cloud Innovation Gateway – that the company says will allow users to eliminate data silos, IT constraints and access barriers. In addition, new seamless digital thread workflows connecting Altair One and Altair HyperWorks – Altair’s design and simulation platform – will enable users to preview and modify models and track data, access online libraries, and more. These functions are available within a single sign-on ecosystem that is available from any location.
End-to-end simulation workflows
Simulation 2022.3 also brings new end-to-end workflows and capabilities to other Altair packages, including HyperMesh, Inspire SimLab and more. Inspire Fluids can be used to create, modify and change part and assembly shapes that meet hydraulic design objectives. Inspire also now supports the Linux user interface and offers a new set of geometry creation tools. Altair also says the electronic system design improvements give users the power to perform battery module modelling and thermal analysis of complex electronic systems with greater efficiency than before.
A further enhancement is that Simulation 2022.3 users can better capture expert decision-making for improved design-of-experiments (DOE) outcomes. Part and element properties can vary within a design exploration, and the expanded integration is designed to let users create general links between variables of any type and create responses from external file types. Other enhancements include improving efficiency by automatically upgrading models with design variables from any exploration run.
