The software updates include comprehensive computational fluid dynamics and expanded electronic system design capabilities
The global provider of solutions in simulation, high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) called Altair has released a simulation solution that includes comprehensive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and expanded capabilities for electronic system design (ESD). The expansion also offers seamless access to the cloud.
CFD Solutions Under Single License
Altair CFD is a cost-effective alternative to purchasing individual tools from multiple software vendors by delivering all major CFD solutions under a single license including:
- General-purpose fluid dynamics and thermal simulation leveraging the Navier-Stokes (NS) method
- Simulation of oiling, sloshing and mixing with smoothed-particle hydrodynamics (SPH)
- External aerodynamics simulation using the Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM)
- Simulation of particle fluid systems with the discrete element modelling (DEM) method
- Modelling of complex, integrated thermo-fluid systems
Thus engineering teams always have the most appropriate technology available for each application, reducing modelling and product development times. Altair CFD provides advanced capabilities including coupling between several different CFD applications as well as with other applications such as structural analysis, etc.
Additionally, the LBM and SPH codes in Altair CFD were written using native graphics processing unit (GPU) codes, enabling faster simulations, more design exploration and improved product performance.
Zero-Download Simulation In The Cloud
Altair One is a single portal for Altair’s products, accessible anywhere via standard workstations, PCs, laptops and mobile devices. Users can launch simulation applications in the cloud from a single interface with easy access to resources that are on-premises, in the cloud or a hybrid. Product teams can increase simulation-driven design collaboration by securely uploading, accessing, storing and managing data using the Altair One drive.
Altair One does not require additional capital expenditures on complex IT and can scale immediately in response to peaks in workload. It also empowers users to provision turnkey, scalable appliance clusters across all major cloud providers including Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Google Cloud Platform.
Flexibility is further enhanced by Altair Units, Altair’s patented, subscription-based licensing model, which allows organisations to pay only for what and when they need it. This includes the new Product Engineer bundle that automates and simplifies complex analysis tasks for multiple physics.
“Throughout our 35-year history, Altair has developed and acquired countless specialised technologies to solve even the most challenging CFD problems,” said James R. Scapa, founder and chief executive officer, Altair. “We are proud to have the industry’s most robust CFD offering whose breadth and depth is unparalleled and can efficiently and effectively address a broad range of multidisciplinary challenges.”
