The Altair Partner Alliance has announced that Analyswift is joining the programme and is adding its complex composite modelling tool — Swiftcomp Micromechanics — to the portfolio of partner applications available to Hyperworks users under Altair Engineering’s licence manager.

Swiftcomp Micromechanics is said to combine efficiency and accuracy when assisting with the design and modelling of complex composites to improve structural designs, estimating a structure’s capabilities or engineering a new material with enhanced performance characteristics.

The software — a general-purpose micromechanics code — applies a mathematical approach to enable quick results without the loss of accuracy. It is targeted at industries including aerospace, aircraft, wind energy, automotive, marine, defence and construction.

Swiftcomp Micromechanics calculates a complete set of physical properties in seconds. It runs only one analysis, which can be carried out on a typical laptop computer, and takes seconds to complete. The software obtains a complete set of fully coupled, multiphysical properties without the application of highly crafted load and boundary conditions, post-processing or multiple runs.

For customers wanting to learn more about the software, Altair and Analyswift are set to host introductory webinars on 1 April 2013 at 10:00 and 14:00 EDT.

Altair Partner Alliance

  • Altair’s unit-based licensing system gives Hyperworks users customisable access to a growing range of applications while optimising their return on investment (ROI) with each new partner added.
  • Since the start of the licensing system, every licence has been composed of a pool of recyclable Hyperworks units (HWUs), which can be used to access any application within the Hyperworks range.
  • Altair is offering the opportunity for third-party companies to run their own applications under this unit-based system.
  • The overall flexibility of the HWUs is claimed to empower users and gives them access to a large suite of computer-aided engineering applications.
