HyperMesh (and OptiStruct) and SimLab mesh import


HyperMesh and SimLab are two software from Altair which are dedicated to the pre-processing. In both of them, user can find all the tools to achieve his geometry and mesh it.

In Flux, it is possible to import the mesh coming from those software, in order to go directly to the physical definition and solving.

In this chapter, the steps and advices to export the mesh from HyperMesh and SimLab and then to import it in Flux are described.

Concerning the mesh coming from OptiStruct which is a postprocessing tool encapsulated in HyperMesh, it is actually a HyperMesh mesh: only the mesh file extension changes.
