Altair Simulation- AcuSolve: Background

This section gives a brief background of Altair Simulation- AcuSolve and a brief introduction of AcuSolve.

Altair Simulation products, which include Radioss, OptiStruct, MotionSolve and HyperXtrude to name a few, is a software giant in the Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) Industry.

Apart from CAE products, Altair operates business in product design consultancy and cloud computing services.

AcuSolve is a leading general purpose CFD solver that is capable of solving the most demanding industrial and scientific applications. Based on the Finite Element method, AcuSolve’s robust and scalable solver technology empowers users by providing unparalleled accuracy on fully unstructured meshes. Applications ranging from steady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations to complex, transient, multi-physics simulations are handled with ease and accuracy. AcuSolve is used worldwide by scientists and engineers to explore applications in a variety of markets including automotive, aerospace, energy, electronics cooling and chemical processing.

The key benefits of AcuSolve include:
  • Robustness: Most problems are solved on the first attempt
  • Speed: Fully coupled solver on shared memory and distributed parallel systems
  • Accuracy: Highly accurate in space and time while globally and locally conservative
