HyperWorks is a powerful Computer-Aided Engineering platform developed by Altair®. It consists of several tools to perform all common structural analysis and optimization tasks, as well as simulations involving crush, forming, manufacturing, DOE studies, and much more. Its meshing capabilities are recognized as best-in-class among CAE tools. HyperWorks is widely used in automotive, aerospace, biomedical, energy, and electronics sectors to accelerate the design cycle, reduce product costs, and foster innovation through accurate simulations and powerful optimization capabilities.
The focus of this workshop is to provide an introduction to two of the main tools of the HyperWorks package, namely HyperMesh and HyperView, as well as Altair’s built-in solver Optistruct. Together, these tools are used to pre-process, solve, and post-process Finite Element models representing a wide range of structural analysis and optimization tasks. The content of the workshop is intended towards students with little or no prior experience with HyperWorks. The interface, tools, concepts, and methods will be introduced by the instructor and the students will be guided through exercises step-by-step. The workshop will be wrapped up with a mini-project in which students review the topics and get hands-on experience on model setup, debugging, and post-processing of results.
All current UofT engineering students (undergraduate and graduate levels) are welcome to participate. It is particularly beneficial for students involved in Capstone project or graduatelevel research in the area of numerical simulations.
