AcuSolve

Built upon a rigorous scientific foundation, AcuSolve is a proven asset for companies looking to explore their designs. AcuSolve provides powerful fluid flow analysis capabilities without the difficulties associated with traditional CFD applications.

Experienced CFD analysts are all too familiar with the challenges of getting a simulation to run in the majority of commercial solvers. Endless geometry simplification to construct block structured meshes, days spent wrestling with meshing software, and solution divergence due to poor quality meshes are common issues faced in the workflow of many solvers.
Altair's AcuSolve provides you with the tools you need to avoid the CFD pre-processing bottle neck and focus on exploring your CFD simulation results. AcuSolve's powerful solver technology provides you with the most robust solution in the CFD marketplace.

AcuSolve's proprietary numerical methods yield stable simulations and accurate results regardless of the quality and topology of the mesh elements. When combined with automated unstructured meshing, no CFD software gets you to your end goal sooner: analyzing results and exploring the physics of your application.

AcuSolve's single solver architecture and constantly evolving feature set provides a valuable tool to any company tasked with performing CFD analysis.

FEKO

FEKO is a comprehensive computational electromagnetics (CEM) code used widely in the telecommunications, automobile, space and defense industries.

FEKO is a comprehensive computational electromagnetics (CEM) software used widely in the telecommunications, automobile, aerospace and defense industries. FEKO offers several frequency and time domain EM solvers under a single license. Hybridization of these methods enables the efficient analysis of a broad spectrum of EM problems, including antennas, microstrip circuits, RF components and biomedical systems, the placement of antennas on electrically large structures, the calculation of scattering as well as the investigation of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). WinProp is a dedicated tool for wave propagation modeling and radio network planning.
FEKO also offers tools that are tailored to solve more challenging EM interactions, including dedicated solvers for characteristic mode analysis (CMA) and bi-directional cables coupling. Special formulations are also included for efficient simulation of integrated windscreen antennas and antenna arrays.

Combined with the MLFMM, and the true hybridization of the solvers, FEKO is considered the global market leader for antenna placement analysis.

SimLab

SimLab is a process-oriented finite element modeling software especially suited for solid element modeling. A variety of very well laid out processes are included and will accelerate your work significantly.

SimLab allows you to quickly and accurately simulate engineering behavior of complex assemblies. Modeling tasks are automated 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 that captures and automates simulation processes.

Virtual Wind Tunnel

HyperWorks Virtual Wind Tunnel is a vertical solution for external aerodynamics. The streamlined workflow in combination with customizable automatic result reporting ensures quick turnaround times during the development cycle.

Altair’s HyperWorks Virtual Wind Tunnel is a vertical application tailored for external aerodynamic studies. Designed with the users’ needs in mind, the graphical user interface provides easy access to problem definition and solution strategies.
