Aernnova, Spain Extends Use of Altair's HyperWorks

June 24, 2014

Altair said that Aernnova, Spain has heavily extended its use of Altair's computer-aided-engineering (CAE) software suite HyperWorks.

According to a release from the company, the company assumes integral management of large aircraft sections and provides engineering services, composites and metallic parts as well as maintenance and support services.

Aernnova supports customers such as Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, and others. Aernnova uses HyperWorks and especially HyperMesh to set up large geometries for structural analysis, and HyperView for post- processing tasks. The company also employs OptiStruct to handle further weight optimizations of existing structures and HyperStudy for design of experiment studies.

Aernnova started working with Altair in 2009, strongly expanding its use of HyperWorks over time. Just recently, the company expanded its contract to enable unlimited use of HyperWorks for Aernnova Spain, giving engineers unlimited and flexible access to the entire CAE suite according to their needs.

"Altair products have proven to be very useful, time-saving tools for all of our development projects," said Felix Rebollo Arribas, Structural Integrity Director of the Engineering Division at Aernnova. "HyperMesh became the default pre-processing tool in our company and its use continues to rise. It offers a user-friendly interface and contains plenty of helpful functions with which we are able to create and modify meshes and edit geometries. Another plus is the open architecture of the software suite. HyperMesh and HyperView are solver-independent, which makes it possible to prepare flexibly-applicable models and geometries for every specific solver a customer might request. Last but not least, I would like to emphasize the quality of the training and support provided by Altair."

Altair is focused on the development and broad application of simulation technology.

Aernnova is an aerostructures company.
