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.

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.
