Aerospace expert uses Altair meshing tool

Altair, developer of the HyperWorks computer-aided engineering software, has announced that aerospace and composites design and analysis consultancy Frewer Engineering has invested in and now is employing HyperMesh, Altair’s meshing tool included in its HyperWorks suite.

Frewer uses HyperMesh to prepare and design large FEA models for the analysis of aerospace components to investigate the structural integrity of composite material.

'Altair’s HyperWorks software was recommended to us by a colleague working for a large aerospace OEM,' said Peter Frewer, managing director at Frewer Engineering.

'This was perfect timing, since we were looking for a tool that could help us manipulate, create and analyse large FE models iteratively. To us, HyperMesh is the best meshing tool on the market, because it allows us to easily and quickly generate high-quality aerospace mesh models, as well as to manipulate imported mesh models from the CAD packages our customers' use.

'In addition, HyperWorks offers a great advantage with its open architecture that interfaces directly with the software our customers use; and, although we’ve only been using the software for a short while, we have already been able to reduce model preparation time on some projects by 50 per cent,' said Frewer.
