Altair’s latest update is said to help users unlock superior designs with AI-powered simulation.

TROY, Mich.—Simulation software provider Altair reported it released the latest updates to its  simulation portfolio, Simulation 2022.3. The updates focus on cloud collaboration and computing, efficient end-to-end simulation workflows, and superior design creation with AI-powered simulation, Altair said in a release.

Altair Simulation 2022.3 builds on the enhancements brought by Altair’s previous version, Simulation 2022.2. It provides updates to Altair One—Altair’s Cloud Innovation Gateway™—that allow users to eliminate data silos, IT constraints, and access barriers. According to the company, new seamless digital thread workflows connect Altair One and the design and simulation platform, Altair® HyperWorks®. This empowers users to preview and modify models, track data, and access online libraries. They  can do this and more within a single sign-on ecosystem that’s available from any location, the company said.

Simulation 2022.3 is also reported to bring new end-to-end workflows and capabilities to Altair® HyperMesh®, Altair® Inspire™, and Altair® SimLab®. Inspire Fluids can be used to create, modify, and change part and assembly shapes that meet hydraulic design objectives. Inspire now supports the Linux user interface and offers a new set of geometry creation tools. In addition, electronic system design improvements reportedly give users the power to perform battery module modeling and thermal analysis of complex electronic systems with greater efficiency.

Simulation 2022.3 is also reported help users “unlock superior designs with AI-powered simulation.” It is said to improve users’ ability to capture expert decision-making for improved design-of-experiments (DOE) outcomes. Part and element properties can vary within a design exploration, and expanded integration lets users create general links between variables of any type and create responses from external file types. Other enhancements improve efficiency by automatically upgrading models with design variables from any exploration run, the company said.

Altair, a prominent player in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI), provides software and cloud solutions in simulation, high-performance computing (HPC), data analytics, and AI.
