EADS Defence & Security and Premium AEROTEC GmbH extend use of HyperWorks

Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of simulation technology and engineering services that empower client innovation and decision-making, announced today that EADS Defence & Security and Premium AEROTEC GmbH, a wholly owned EADS subsidiary, have extended their use of HyperWorks. EADS Defence & Security first started using HyperWorks' optimization solution, OptiStruct in 2005. The following year, HyperMesh was selected as the preferred finite element (FE) pre-processing solution for analysis departments and HyperView, the suite's FE post-processing technology, followed shortly after. HyperMesh and HyperView are heavily used for Eurofighter support and enhancement tasks as well as for the structural development of future aviation products. Premium AEROTEC GmbH is using HyperWorks to aid in the development of all the Airbus programs they support.

"We see a growing need for simulation and optimization within the aerospace industry and decided therefore to extend our use of HyperWorks," said Franz Josef Weiss, CAE Requirement Manager at EADS Defence & Security, Germany. "HyperMesh allows our engineers to get better FE models in a shorter time. Thus, we can quickly prepare accurate models of complex composite components for analysis. OptiStruct is an optimization tool that supports us in particular with the structural concept development, in order to meet aggressive weight targets of modern aircraft structures."

"We are very pleased with the broad expansion of HyperWorks at EADS Defence & Security," said Dr. Michael Hoffmann, Altair Vice President EMEA. "All of our HyperWorks products are continuously enriched with valuable input from customers like EADS Defence & Security. This helps us stay in close contact with the industry in order to provide the simulation technology required to develop today's modern aircraft systems. From streamlining CAE processes to providing what has become the de facto standard for structural optimization in the aerospace industry (OptiStruct), we look forward to increasing our cooperation with EADS Defence & Security and I am confident that both parties will continue to mutually benefit."
