"AnalySwift is another important addition to our broad suite of Altair Partner Alliance products that addresses the needs of our customers using advanced composite materials," said Robert Yancey, senior director – aerospace for Altair. "To make full use of the advantages offered by advanced composites, tools such as SwiftComp are necessary to design and analyze these materials so that they meet customer requirements."
With the ability to deal with any microstructure containing a given number of constituents, SwiftComp is an incredibly versatile tool, applicable to a wide variety of industries, including aerospace and aircraft, wind energy, automotive, marine, defense and construction, to name a few. It can be used to perform multiscale modeling of composite structures, homogenization of heterogeneous materials and multiphysics micromechanics analysis of composites, among other processes.
Available for the last 12 years, Altair's innovative unit-based licensing system allows HyperWorks users customizable access to a growing portfolio of applications while optimizing their return on investment (ROI) with each new partner added. Since the start, every license has been composed of a pool of recyclable HyperWorks units (HWUs), which can be used to access any application within the HyperWorks family.
After experiencing this original licensing model's success, Altair has offered the opportunity for third-party companies to run their own applications under this unit-based system, a collaboration now known as the Altair Partner Alliance. The overall flexibility of these HWUs empowers users and allows them access to the largest and most complete suite of CAE applications available, making the benefits to participating HyperWorks customers infinite. The ROI increases for users each time a new application is added to the offering, since any of the partner programs can be accessed using the same leased HWUs they are already using to run HyperWorks. This makes more than 50 additional applications available at no incremental cost or long-term commitment.
