Altair HyperWorks

Driving More Design with Simulation

HyperWorks provides easy-to-learn, effective workflows that leverage domain knowledge and increase team productivity, enabling the efficient development of today’s increasingly complex and connected products.

The new HyperWorks experience was created to free engineers to move from physics to physics, domain to domain, and even create reports without ever leaving their model. Create, explore, and optimize designs within HyperWorks to produce robust designs that accurately model structures, mechanisms, fluids, electromagnetics, electrical, embedded software, systems design, and manufacturing processes.

The solution-specific workflows enhance many engineering processes, including fatigue analysis, concept design optimization, CFD modelling, and design exploration. Each provides a meticulously designed and intuitive user interface, differentiated for each user profile while remaining consistent and easy to learn.

Intuitive direct modelling for geometry creation and editing, mid-surface extraction, surface and mid-meshing, and mesh quality correction, combined with efficient assembly management, provide all the capabilities required for fast, accurate model creation and evaluation of design alternatives and product variants in less time.

HyperWorks offers a complete environment to visualize, query, and process results data. It gives access to a wide range of CAE data formats, including video files and images. It enables complete post-processing and data analysis with advanced table and curve plotting up to 3D visualization of complex simulation and photo-realistic rendering. Furthermore, it enables users to share and customize working sessions though flexibly.

Reasons to choose HyperWorks

Faster Product Development

Altair integrated the tools required for the product lifecycles of today’s programs with bi-directional connection to PDM systems while enabling multiple variants and sub-systems to be easily managed within the same model.

Altair HyperWorks

Greater Multi-disciplinary

Simulate your complex and interconnected product with high accuracy across various operating environments using multi-disciplinary, multiphysics, and multi-model simulations.


Accurate Modeling of More Design Alternatives

HyperWorks is the unified CAE environment for product development built on the foundation of Altair® HyperMesh®, the most trusted industry standard for FE modelling and visualization.


Key Features of Compose

Fast, Intuitive Workflows Accelerate product development with new workflows optimized for specific processes, including fatigue analysis, concept design optimization, CFD modelling, design exploration, and more.

Transition on Your Timeline Both the new and established HyperWorks experiences are available with no loss of existing functionality. All HyperMesh models, scripts, and processes continue to work.

Manage the Largest Models Thanks to the efficient assembly management with bi-directional connection to PDM systems, multiple variants and sub-systems can be easily managed within the same model.

High-fidelity Meshing Decrease model build time with efficient workflows, including geometry creation and editing, mid-surface extraction, surface meshing and mid-meshing and mesh quality correction.

Direct FE and Geometry Modeling Use intuitive direct modelling capabilities to create and evaluate design alternatives rapidly. Introduce new geometry revisions directly on the existing FE model.

Interactive Morphing Morphing is no longer an expert-level tool. The easy-to-learn mesh morphing features of HyperWorks brings efficiency to teams working on simulation models early in product development.
