Interview with Chee Kwan of Altair at LTE Asia 2012 – bnetTV


October 30, 2012

bnetTV speaks with Chee Kwan from Altair at the 2012 LTE Asia show held in Singapore and gets a overview of the company and their products.

Altair today invited its customers to participate in a beta testing program for HyperWorks 12.0, a new version of Altair’s globally acclaimed computer-aided engineering (CAE) suite. The beta program is designed to gain feedback from engineers, designers and others, who will test the upgraded version in real-life applications.

Each time beta testers submit their feedback to Altair via the HyperWorks website, they will be entered in a drawing for any of three prizes that will be awarded: a Kindle Fire HD tablet, a Kindle Paperwhite e-reader and a traditional Kindle e-reader. Submissions for the drawing, in the form of relevant comments for fine-tuning HyperWorks 12.0, will be accepted via the registration site until Thursday, November 15, 2012. Winners will be notified by January 25, 2013. Additional information, terms and conditions are available at To join the beta program and become eligible for the drawing, current customers should contact their local Altair representative for registration information.

The rollout of HyperWorks 12.0 is scheduled for early 2013, and users can subscribe for updates on the release, related training material and webinars at The latest version of HyperWorks will incorporate hundreds of new features to meet the changing needs of those engaged in finite-element analysis, simulation-driven design, product optimization and other CAE projects. HyperWorks 12.0 will reflect additional advancements in the extensive capabilities of the CAE suite:

*HyperWorks modeling and visualization tools, like HyperMesh and HyperView, consistently surpass users’ expectations, as demonstrated by their clear supremacy in both automotive and aerospace markets.

*HyperWorks 12.0 will further enable the optimization and analysis of innovative composite materials.

*Through RADIOSS, AcuSolve and MotionSolve, HyperWorks 12.0 will offer extended solver capabilities and performance improvements, in particular for such analysis domains as powertrain durability, noise and vibrations, multibody dynamics, aerodynamics and multi-physics.

*Optimization through OptiStruct and HyperStudy continues leading the way to efficient, lightweight products and design exploration.

*Collaborative knowledge management is increasingly important in HyperWorks, easily connecting engineers to other enterprise tools.
