Aerostruktur Faserverbundtechnik GmbH Selects HyperWorks Suite to Streamline Development Process of Airborne Structures

TROY, Mich., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ — Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of simulation technology and engineering services that empower client innovation and decision-making, announced today that Aerostruktur Faserverbundtechnik GmbH, a Germany-based aerospace supplier, has chosen HyperWorks, Altair’s computer aided engineering (CAE) suite, to reduce modeling time and to accelerate the overall development process.

Aerostruktur Faserverbundtechnik GmbH specializes in design, development, and manufacturing of complete airborne structures and components. The company has broad expertise in design and manufacturing techniques involving fiber-reinforced plastics and started to use HyperWorks in May, 2009, with the suite’s pre- and post-processing tools: HyperMesh and HyperView, as well as the suite’s solver, RADIOSS. All tools are used for basic engineering design work, including structural analysis in the aviation and aerospace field, but also for military applications.

“The decision to switch to HyperWorks was especially driven by the fact that HyperMesh is much faster and more flexible than any competitor’s tool we have tested,” said Dipl.-Ing. W. Hoffmann, managing director at Aerostruktur Faserverbundtechnik GmbH. “Quick meshing and geometry cleanups can be done a lot easier and are partly automated, which saves us considerable modeling and meshing time. Furthermore, HyperWorks will help us to streamline our core activity, the development of advanced structures of fiber-reinforced plastics.”

“I am very pleased with Aerostruktur’s selection of our HyperWorks Suite,” said Dr. Detlef Schneider, managing director, Altair, Germany. “We see a high interest on the part of aerospace OEMs and suppliers in adopting HyperWorks’ superior modeling, visualization and optimization technologies. In particular, our solutions for the optimization of composite structures are key for further improvements in aerospace development and lead to lighter and better products created in less time.”
