Geometric SAS Adds HyperWorks Suite as a Preferred CAE Tool Set
TROY, Mich., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ — Altair Engineering, a leading global provider of technology and services that empower client innovation and decision-making, announced today that Geometric SAS, the French, subsidiary of Geometric Limited, a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Engineering services and Offshore Product Development (OPD) solutions and technologies, has added the HyperWorks platform to its preferred set of CAE tools. HyperWorks will be used to provide finite element (FE), optimization, and modeling services to all of Geometric’s European customers, especially in the automotive industry.
“Geometric SAS has been using HyperWorks for over a year now and benefited by its unparalleled speed and flexibility. HyperWorks allows us to develop and compare many design conditions in a highly interactive and visual environment. Its ability to handle large models allows a much finer mesh, and simulations that are precise. HyperWorks’ graphical user interface is easy to learn, and supports the direct use of CAD geometry and existing finite element models, thus reducing redundancy,” said Avinash Salelkar, vice president and head of the Engineering Services business at Geometric.
“The HyperWorks license will be used to provide FEA and FEM services to our European customers in the automotive domain. As part of Geometric’s global engineering initiatives, work gets distributed amongst its delivery centers across the globe. Geometric SAS finally collates the data and performs a final check before the delivery to the client, this is a part of the direct FEA/FEM engagements that our French operations have,” said Salelkar.
“We are pleased that Geometric SAS has quickly realized business benefits from its selection of HyperWorks,” said Mauro Guglielminotti, managing director, Altair Engineering in France. “The value of the HyperWorks business model, its broad application scope, and open-architecture design enables engineering service companies, like Geometric, to more easily address the varied engineering requirements that are inherent with organizations that have diverse client bases.”
Built on a foundation of design optimization, performance data management and process automation, HyperWorks is an enterprise simulation solution for rapid design exploration and decision-making. As the most comprehensive, open-architecture CAE solution in the industry, HyperWorks includes best-in-class modeling, analysis, visualization and data management solutions for linear, non-linear, structural optimization, fluid-structure interaction, and multi-body dynamics applications.
