CoDA from Anaglyph enables concept designers to study potential composite materials, beam and plate sizes and thicknesses, and support conditions to be selected for further detailed investigation.
The Altair Partner Alliance provides HyperWorks users access to additional composites analysis software.
HyperMesh provides an interface to Analglyph’s Laminate Tools to simulate composite draping effects for highly curved surfaces. The interface enables users to quickly review and export flat ply-shape geometries and changes in ply-thicknesses or orientation due to draping. The tool is not part of the partner alliance and needs to be purchased separately.
The Altair Partner Alliance provides HyperWorks users access to additional micromechanics software.
