Occupant Safety Experts, Cranfield Impact Centre, Select HyperWorks Enterprise Simulation Suite to Improve Vehicle and Pedestrian Safety Performance
Leading authority on Formula 1 crash testing, biomechanics analysis and automotive, aerospace and rail crashworthiness selects Altair CAE platform to improve occupant safety
“From former work experiences I already knew the HyperWorks suite very well and I know that it will help us to fulfill the everyday simulation tasks we face as efficiently as possible,” said Prof.
“HyperWorks offers us extremely good value for our investment, in fact I consider it the ‘Microsoft Office’ of engineering with an expansive set of tools under one license,” he adds. “The combination of RADIOSS for analysis and HyperStudyDSS for design of experiments and optimization allows us to quickly explore design variations and deliver the best solution to our clients for both material utilization and crash performance. This added capability combined with our own expertise truly sets us apart in the vehicle safety market.”
“We are very pleased that CIC have selected our solution for occupant safety and biomechanics applications and I know that they will benefit from the product suite,” said
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 and non-linear, structural optimization, fluid-structure interaction, and multi-body dynamics applications.
