Free CAE! HyperWorks® Student Edition

We would like to invite all interested students to download the HyperWorks® 13.0 Student Edition. This updated version offers functionality for lightweight design and composites structural analysis, efficient modeling and meshing, multiphysics and multi-disciplinary analysis, structural optimization, and design exploration. The computer-aided engineering (CAE) suite includes:

Modeling and Visual Capabilities

HyperMesh® – powerful tool for creating and understanding finite-element models

MotionView® – build, analyze, and improve mechanical system designs

HyperCrash® – specialized modeling environment for automotive crash and safety

HyperView® – general purpose visualization tool

HyperGraph® – user-extensible plotting tool for CAE data

CAE Result Player: HyperView Player Plug-in and stand-alone utility to share and visualize 3D CAE models and results

HyperWorks Collaboration Tools: Simulation data organization and management

HyperWorks Solvers

RADIOSS® – finite element-based solver for highly nonlinear structural analysis under dynamic loading

AcuSolve® – general purpose finite element computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver

MotionSolve: A general-purpose, user-extensible, multi-body systems solver

OptiStruct® – finite element-based linear and non-linear solver for structural analysis, design, and optimization

Mathematical Modeling Environment

HyperMath® – general purpose numerical computing environment that allows customers to easily develop and perform custom mathematical operations on various types of data

Multi-Disciplinary Design Exploration, Study and Optimization

HyperStudy® – multi-disciplinary design exploration, study and optimization software

Ideation and Conceptual Design

solidThinking Evolve® – organic surface modeling for industrial design

solidThinking Inspire® – generates a new material layout within a package space using the loads as an input

The student edition is based on HyperWorks Desktop, which is an integrated user environment for modeling and visualization, as well as pre- and post-process finite element and multibody dynamics simulations. It may also be used to manage and visualize simulation and test data. Best of all, it is completely FREE to download! A more detailed overview may be found on the Altair Academic Blog.

Why not leverage the best-in-class CAE platform for your next project?!
