Engineering company adds to CAE tool set
Geometric SAS, the French subsidiary of Geometric, a leader in product lifecycle management (PLM), engineering services and offshore product development (OPD) solutions and technologies, has added the HyperWorks platform from Altair Engineering to its set of CAE tools. HyperWorks will be used to provide finite element (FE), optimisation, and modelling services to all of Geometric's European customers, especially in the automotive industry.
'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.
