WHAT IS ALTAIR SIMLAB™?

Altair SimLab™ is a multiphysics platform that allows users to build their analysis models for various types of simulation. With the analysis community moving towards CAD integrated analysis solutions, Altair SimLab™ introduces a convenient way to move from CAD to a multiphysics simulation platform. SimLab™ has a powerful automated mesher and bi-directional connectivity with SOLIDWORKS and other CAD tools to enable users to conveniently test the performance of their products with the solvers in the Altair suite.

Workflow-1

Powerful, Repeatable Simulation Workflows

Increase efficiency of simulation cycles with powerful and repeatable simulation workflows. Quickly evaluate different design iterations with live syncing to  parametric modeling tools including CATIA, Pro/E Siemens NX, and SolidWorks.

CFD with SimLab-1

Multiphysics

Altair SimLab's ease of use allows users to perform functions quickly such as model setup of multidisciplinary, and multiphysics problems. SimLab also allows for co-simulation of disciplines, such as structural, CFD, electromagnetics, and thermal analysis.

SimLab Automation

Automated

Altair SimLab™ has built in tools for setup of automated results and convergence, design of experiments (DoE) and optimization.  Additional automation features like Feature recognition algorithms, process-oriented automation templates, and an intuitive GUI dramatically speed up the model build phase.
