Altair Partners with UK’s TotalSim

Altair_logoROYAL LEAMINGTON SPA, UK, Nov 10, 2016 – Altair Engineering Inc., a global leader in product design consulting, engineering software and high performance computing technology, has announced the start of a collaboration with one of the UK’s leading CFD consultancy, TotalSim. The collaboration will start with TotalSim UK adopting HyperMesh, part of the HyperWorks suite, as their main geometry pre-processor for CFD. This is a significant achievement and demonstrates the advances made in the development of Altair’s CFD toolset. TotalSim UK will transition away from their incumbent solution and explore other tools within the HyperWorks suite.

“I have always held great admiration of TotalSim, they are an impressive technology company and Altair is excited by this collaboration. Having world class CFD experts deploying our pre processing technology will further accelerate HyperMesh in this domain.” said Dr Royston Jones, executive VP European operations & global CTO.

TotalSim UK is an independent limited company established in 2007. Leaders in the field of CFD and aerodynamics, they specialise in CFD consultancy, CFD hardware, software development and support. At present TotalSim has 25 employees in the UK with many years’ experience of applied Computational Fluid Dynamics and a combined pool of expertise capable of tackling most engineering problems.

Altair Engineering is the developer of the HyperWorks suite of software packages including HyperMesh & HyperView. HyperMesh is used for creating or modifying computational models and HyperView is used for post processing results. HyperMesh is a market-leading, multi-disciplinary finite element pre-processor which manages the generation of the largest, most complex models, starting with the import of a CAD geometry to exporting ready-to-run solver file. Over the last 20 years, HyperMesh has evolved into the leading premier pre-processor for concept and high fidelity modelling.

“We are looking forward to working with Altair to integrate HyperMesh into our process and to use its functionality to help us face a wide range of complex challenges” Rob Lewis, managing director, TotalSim UK.
