Aernnova, a Spanish aerostructures company, has heavily extended its use of Altair’s Hyperworks computer-aided-engineering (CAE) software suite. The company assumes integral management of large aircraft sections and provides engineering services, composites and metallic parts as well as maintenance and support services.

As one of the most important Tier 1 suppliers to the aerospace industry in Spain, Aernnova supports customers such as Airbus, Boeing and Embraer.

Aernnova uses Hyperworks and especially Hypermesh to set up large geometries for structural analysis, as well as Hyperview for post-processing tasks. The company also employs Optistruct to handle further weight optimisations of existing structures and Hyperstudy for design of experiment studies.

Aernnova started working with Altair in 2009, expanding its use of Hyperworks over time. Just recently, the company expanded its contract to enable unlimited use of Hyperworks for Aernnova Spain, giving engineers unlimited and flexible access to the entire CAE suite according to their needs.

Key benefits of product application

  • Felix Rebollo Arribas, structural integrity director of the engineering division at Aernnova, said: ‘Altair products have proven to be very useful, time-saving tools for all of our development projects.’
  • He added: ‘Hypermesh became the default pre-processing tool in our company and its use continues to rise. It offers a user-friendly interface and contains plenty of helpful functions with which we are able to create and modify meshes and edit geometries.’
  • Another plus, said Rebollo Arribas, is the open architecture of the software suite. Hypermesh and Hyperview are solver-independent, which makes it possible to prepare flexibly applicable models and geometries for every specific solver a customer might request.
  • He also emphasised the quality of the training and support provided by Altair.
