All WSU Gets Free Food & Fun @ Upcoming Hyperwork Technology Conference @ RenCen
2012 Americas HyperWorks Technology Conference
3 Days FREE to the WSU Community. Wayne State University Students, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni (and their family) are invited to visit the 2012 Americas HyperWorks Technology Conference. The Tech Conference is being held at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance building downtown beginning May 15. The event will feature some the world’s best talent in Computer-Aided Engineering simulation.
The event will feature internationally renowned speakers, contain hand’s-on workshops, discussion panels, roundtables, and exhibits of suppliers, vendors, and OEM’s of the CAE industry. The event is a great opportunity to network, collaborate on possible research, job hunt, scout the future of CAE, team with possible companies on projects, show-off the Warrior passion and entertain friends and family to an exciting day of technology.
In order to attend the event, registration is required. Please visit http://altairhtc.com/RegionalHome.aspx?region=na
We will be handing out free goodies at the event to anyone we see wearing WSU gear. Wear a WSU hat, jacket, shirt, button or more and receive a surprise. If you have any questions or comments please e-mail RobertKakos@wayne.edu. We would love to hear about your adventure!
Altair Engineering’s HyperWorks is a computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation software platform that allows businesses to create superior, market-leading products efficiently and cost effectively. HyperWorks accomplishes this in two significant ways:
- A flexible software licensing model that replaces expensive traditional licensing plans with a pay-per-use system. Employees across organizational and geographic boundaries will be able to access simultaneously not only the HyperWorks suite, but also a broad range of complementary third-party programs and other Altair products at no extra cost.
- Simulation-driven design technologies that enables achievement of performance, timing, and cost targets through rapid, low-cost, virtual exploration that accelerates informed decision making throughout the product life cycle.
HyperWorks provides the most comprehensive, open-architecture CAE solution in the industry, including best-in-class modeling, analysis, visualization and data management solutions for linear, nonlinear, structural optimization, fluid-structure interaction, and multi-body dynamics applications. Committed to an open-systems philosophy, Altair HyperWorks continues to lead the industry with the broadest interoperability to commercial CAD and CAE solutions in the PLM market space.
Often some of the most sought after sessions on a conference agenda are the training sessions. This year at HTC 2012, Altair brings together HyperWorks experts with comprehensive training material so you and your teams can get the training you need.
With hundreds of improvements and enhancements made to 11.0, it makes this version of HyperWorks the most feature-rich version to date. HTC 2012 will have eight sessions dedicated to seminar-based training on select products and topics held in two hour sessions. Trainings will be available Tuesday, May 15th. After training sessions, apply the new material in the Hand-On Training Lab. The Lab will be available for the duration of the conference. Training provided at the HTC 2012 is available at no additional cost.
In this seminar-based training, the following topics will be covered:
This session will focus on the use of HyperWorks tools for CFD applications. Students will be exposed to both basic and advanced capabilities and simulation techniques. Basic topics involve the meshing and set-up of a simple fluid flow application. Advanced topics will focus on the set-up, simulation, and post-processing of multi-physics applications.
Connectors are very convenient when working on complex models with hundreds of connections, but even if there is only a small number of connections the use of connectors is beneficial. This training is directed towards both inexperienced and experienced users in the field of connectors.
The following topics will also be discussed:
- Connector Browser
- Classification of connectors
- Connectors and the imprint functionality
- Seam partitioning
This session will focus on the use of HyperWorks tools for Automotive Crash applications. Attendees will be exposed to the interface of TeamCenter-HyperMesh integration for batchmeshing and setting up the model in HyperCrash for Analysis. Demonstrations of advanced concepts in the RADIOSS solver for crash analyses will be covered.
This session will focus on the use of HyperMesh for Advanced Midsurfacing operations. Students will be exposed to advanced capabilities and tools such as extending surfaces, target assignment, re-run process, and thickness assignment capabilities.
This session will focus on the use of NVH Director True Full Vehicle Simulation framework for NVH analysis. Students will be exposed to the HyperWorks tool suite for Subsystem NVH modeling, full vehicle model assembly and loadcase setup, NVH post-processing and diagnostics, and NVH model reduction and optimization.
Durability is one of the key aspects of vehicle product design. There is an ever-growing need to accurately replicate durability tests in a virtual environment to not only design durable components but also to consider durability analysis upfront in the product development cycle.
In this interactive workshop, students will learn:
- How industries are currently applying CAE to analyze vehicle durability
- How different groups coordinate their efforts to assess the fatigue life of components
- How Altair HyperWorks can help users with virtual durability analysis
Students will not only receive a detailed overview of the durability processes, but also have the opportunity to interact with our domain experts.
This session will focus on the following topics:
- Zone-based Vs Ply-based HyperWorks composite modeling approach
- CATIA – CPD based composite modeling
- Fibersim Interface
- Conventional shell vs. Continuum shell / solid composite modeling
Students will also learn about optimization and future HyperWorks enhancements. HyperWorks tips for ply based-PCOMPP and Zone based (PCOMP/PCOMPG) modeling for Multi laminate structures will also be covered.
You can register for these sessions by clicking here.
Tips & Tricks
You will also have a chance to attend the popular Tips & Tricks Session. This session is designed to enable organizations to best apply the capabilities required for implementing product development best practices, the new Tips & Tricks session will provide users with information to more efficiently perform development functions.
UPDATE: A second session has been added! Please view the agenda for more details.
Hands-On Training Lab
Experience HyperWorks in the Hands-On Training Center which will be running interactive material that will enable users to try specific exercises in the newest version of HyperWorks software.
Self Paced Courses
Don’t have time to attend class? Need a specific topic right now? Altair is now offering self paced classes available at anytime to our customers! The Self Paced classes use our See It, Try It, Do It methodology to instruct users. Check out the Self Paced Course List to take entire courses or just a particular section as needed, and remember to visit the Hands-On Training Lab at HTC 2012 to learn more and experience these courses first-hand.
