The Altair Partner Alliance announced the availability of AcuNexus through the program. AcuNexus, developed by NovusNexus, is computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software designed to support simulation-based design (SBD) and is based on the company’s abstract modeling technology.
The solution uses geometry-independent abstract models, which are reusable because they are unconstrained by a CFD models actual geometry. Engineers utilize AcuNexus for CFD analysis in a number of industries, from automotive, aerospace and defense to consumer goods, energy and biomedical, the company says.
“NovusNexus is looking forward to the possibilities that this next step in the relationship with Altair brings,” said Bruce Webster, president and CEO at NovusNexus. “Since existing integration with AcuSolve has already been created, joining the Altair Partner Alliance is a natural evolution in our partnership. It allows for an even more seamless solution by providing access to AcuNexus by HyperWorks users through the APA. We are excited to see what the future holds now that there are even more opportunities to explore and foster possible functionalities and innovative integrations between the two CFD software tools.”
“AcuNexus is a powerful preprocessor for AcuSolve, complementing our in-house preprocessors, AcuConsole and HyperMesh,” said Farzin Shakib, the vice president of CFD technology at Altair. “It distinguishes itself by providing a unique abstract modeling technology, which seamlessly and visually automates CAD to input file generation.”
AcuNexus supports CAD geometry models from Pro/E, Creo, SolidWorks and Discrete for CFD analysis, with AcuSolve as its CFD solver.
