Simulating real-world physics and accurately predicting system behavior is the key to obtaining maximum value from CAE software. It involves intelligent modeling assumptions, choosing the right numerical solution algorithms and carefully examining the results to ensure that they are meaningful.
Altair® MotionSolveTM is the right tool for the job. MotionSolve is a next-generation, multi-body systems analysis software based on a revolutionary new formulation technique. It provides analysts and designers with a broad selection of modeling entities to accurately model complex mechanical systems with minimal assumptions. The robust software is especially tailored for models containing a number of large, flexible bodies. It employs numerically stiff solution algorithms that are well suited to accurately solve a wide variety of problems. Finally, its availability within the HyperWorks suite provides users with an unmatched, built-in capability to analyze and evaluate system response.
MotionSolve is an open source, scalable and integrated multibody solution. It therefore enables you to graphically build systems, numerically solve the underlying equations, evaluate system behavior by examining plots and animations and improve their performance through design exploration and optimization.
MotionSolve models are parametric and they can be built hierarchically. This means you can create libraries of parametric subsystems and reuse these to build your system model. MotionSolve has been developed in partnership with customers. So it has been thoroughly validated on real models for ease-of-use, scalability, accuracy, robustness and speed.
MotionSolve allows you to include flexibility effects by importing modal representations of finite element models, co-simulate with controls software and 1-D simulators that contain non-mechanical subsystems, include FMUs developed by third-party solution providers and connect to CFD codes to account for accurate aerodynamic forces. At the user interface level, you can create your own GUIs to instantiate systems and subsystems you created. At the solver level you can customize the physics of the model. Both the solver and the GUI have well-documented interfaces that allow you to customize and extend the solution.
