Troy-based Altair Engineering Inc. said Stream, the thermal fluid analysis system of Software Cradle Inc., had joined the HyperWorks Partner Alliance.

HyperWorks users can now download the latest version of Stream from the partner alliance Web site at and use Stream at little or no incremental cost through their existing HyperWorks software license system.

To date, more than 350 companies worldwide have joined the HyperWorks Partner Alliance.

Stream software captures geometric shape as an approximated structured (Cartesian or cylindrical) mesh. This method is especially advantageous for design engineers in need of stability, high computational speed and low memory consumption for models with many parts composed of predominantly rectangular shapes. Also, user friendly wizard navigation makes it easy to set up analysis conditions and a wide range of solver functions ensure fast, functional results.

Stream also boasts a powerful postprocessor to visualize analysis results and create beautiful effects and animations for impressive presentations. Applications of this technology include indoor air conditioning systems, environmental assessment of wind, and electronics cooling.

Industries such as construction, civil engineering, electronics, chemical and automotive use Stream’s MultiBlock meshing functions, material property library, high computational speed and robust calculation solver for their CFD analysis.

HyperWorks is a suite of enterprise analytic applications that includes statistical, database, visualization and simulation software to help companies make better business decisions. Its patented HyperWorks Units licensing technology allows users to transparently share software licenses globally across a broad suite of applications.
