Altair’s SimLab 12.0, a software tool created specifically as a pre-processor for detailed computer models of complex powertrains, is now offered as part of the company's HyperWorks 12.0 suite of computer-aided engineering software. Because it now is integrated into HyperWorks, SimLab can be run with the same HyperWorks units that designers and engineers use for all the other HyperWorks simulation tools. This development makes it more accessible and cost-efficient than in the past, claims the company. The auto industry can use SimLab for powertrain modeling and setup, along with OptiStruct 12.0 for powertrain analysis and optimization. SimLab’s role in simulation preparation includes feature-based solid meshing for structures like the engine cylinder block and head and the setup of simulation loads and boundary conditions. According to Altair, with SimLab 12.0 meshes require no manual cleanup—perfectly clean meshes are generated automatically, the company said.
