Creation UK Deploys the HyperWorks Simulation Platform for a Wide Range of Vehicle Design Programs: Altair, developer of the popular HyperWorks computer-aided engineering software, today announced that United Kingdom-based military vehicle developer Creation UK deployed Altair’s HyperWorks simulation tools for a new design of armored vehicles to improve the survivability of occupants in the event of a blast impact. Several tools in the HyperWorks package were used as part of the development process: HyperMesh generated different types of FEA models – individual components, assemblies and full vehicle models, and these were analyzed in RADIOSS to ensure compliance with automotive and defense design requirements. The results were then post-processed in HyperView. Designing and developing these vehicles in a virtual environment also enabled Creation UK to reduce the cost of physical prototyping as well as development time.
