CFD Simulation And Design Technology AcuNexus Brings Abstract Modeling To The Altair Partner Alliance

TROY, Mich., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) today announced the availability of AcuNexus through the program. AcuNexus, developed by NovusNexus, Inc., is computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software designed to support simulation-based design (SBD) and is based on the company's unique abstract modeling technology.

AcuNexus uses geometry-independent abstract models, which are reusable because they are unconstrained by a CFD models actual geometry. Engineers utilize AcuNexus for CFD analysis in a number of industries, from automotive, aerospace and defense to consumer goods, energy and biomedical.

"NovusNexus is looking forward to the possibilities that this next step in the relationship with Altair brings," said Bruce Webster, President and CEO at NovusNexus. "Since existing integration with AcuSolve has already been created, joining the Altair Partner Alliance is a natural evolution in our partnership.  It allows for an even more seamless solution by providing access to AcuNexus by HyperWorks users through the APA. We are excited to see what the future holds now that there are even more opportunities to explore and foster possible functionalities and innovative integrations between the two CFD software tools."

"AcuNexus is a powerful preprocessor for AcuSolve, complementing our in-house preprocessors, AcuConsole and HyperMesh," said Farzin Shakib, the Vice President of CFD Technology at Altair. "It distinguishes itself by providing a unique abstract modeling technology, which seamlessly and visually automates CAD to input file generation."

Three unique capabilities help AcuNexus to significantly accelerate product innovation and reduce the amount of time wasted by CFD analysts on tedious administrative tasks.  First, the software is geometry independent, allowing customers to reuse abstract models to define and capture simulation parameters. Second, it is capable of processing CAD models directly to avoid geometry conversion and simultaneously minimizes cleanup efforts. Third, the ability to generate mesh automatically provides consistent quality, independent of user skills.
