Software and Hardware Release Notes
Various changes have been made to the HyperWorks 10.0 software packaging including the
HyperWorks products, hardware support, installation, invoking, and online help.
Beginning in HyperWorks 9.0, all applications were switched from HyperWorks Units to a new
licensing system called GridWorks Units (GWU). GridWorks Units work much like HyperWorks Units
with one main difference: one HyperWorks Unit is equivalent to 100 GridWorks Units. This change
allows for the pricing of less expensive Altair products within the same unit-based licensing system.
The detailed changes made to the Altair licensing system are documented in the Altair Licensing
Release Notes.
Software Additions and Changes
ScriptView Altair ScriptView is an Integrated Development
Environment (IDE) for producing and executing
custom scripts.
It takes 600 GridWorks units to load ScriptView.
HyperMath Altair HyperMath is a scripting language coupled
with a set of libraries designed for numerical coding.
It takes 600 GridWorks units to load HyperMath.
HyperStudy/HyperStudyDSS HyperStudy and HyperStudyDSS have been
consolidated into one application, HyperStudy.
Utility/Tools The Tcl/Tk version has been upgraded to Tcl/Tk
8.4.16 for Windows.
Supported Hardware Platform Additions
Operating systems Support has been added for:
Linux RHEL 5.2
SLED 10 SP1

is installed with the HyperWorks solver package.
The HyperWorks solver package is no longer an
add-on package. It can be installed as a standalone
software.
The server/client installation on Windows has been
improved.
The uname -m command, a more universal
standard of Linux, can now be used for checking
Linux machine types.
Updates to Mainwin 5.2 provide support for the
latest Linux platforms: RHEL 5.2 and SLED 10 SP1.
HyperWorks help A print button is now available on each help page
that allows you to print topics.
The navigation path of the current help topic is now
displayed above the topic title.
The latest HyperWorks help content is posted on the
HyperWorks web site (www.altairhyperworks.com)
under the Support page.
The help content for HyperWorks Solver and CAD
Interfaces has been moved into the HyperMesh,
HyperView, and HyperGraph help systems.
As with the products, HyperStudy and
HyperStudyDSS help has been consolidated into
one help system (HyperStudy).
Resolved Issues
Installation and launch The HyperWorks installation issue related to not
finding the gtar within our installer when the UNIX
system fails to have gtar present has been resolved.
HyperView can now be launched when the
ABAQUS ODB API is not installed.
HyperWorks can now be installed on a machine
containing a large amount of disc space.

hw_sysinfo no longer fails to provide a report.
The requirement of setting the variables for the
online help browser in order to run the OptiStruct job
without warning messages has been eliminated.
The HyperWorks client installation on Windows no
longer requires write access to the NETSETUP
folder on the server machine where the HyperWorks
server installation resides.
HyperView and HyperGraph no longer conflict and
fail to invoke on a Linux machine where the WINE
API is installed and exists in the PATH variable.
The command line error message (unknown test
operator) when invoking HyperWorks on HPUX 11.1
has been corrected.
Known Limitations

Installation and launch Installing and launching HyperWorks 32 bit GUI
applications on a 64 bit Linux platform is not
recommended.
HyperView Player is not available with Windows
based software server installations.
Help browsers On UNIX machines, the help does not work on old
versions of browsers.
On Internet Explorer, links to open the PDF files
may not work. As workarounds, you can save the
file to a local directory or save the file path as a
Favorite.
Utilities In Windows based software server installations,
HW_Inventory can be run from software server
clients, but not from the server.
Some files listed in the HW_Inventory results file do
not show version tags.
6 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
Altair Licensing Release Notes
Beginning in HyperWorks 9.0, all applications moved from HyperWorks Units to a new licensing
system called GridWorks Units (GWU). GridWorks Units work much like HyperWorks Units with one
main difference: one HyperWorks Unit is equivalent to 100 GridWorks Units.
The GridWorks licensing system was designed to enable HyperWorks Partner Products (selected
third party products) to be licensed via GridWorks Units. As part of the license agreement that
enables partner software to be used, product usage data must be sent to Altair. The Altair GridWorks
License package is separate from the HyperWorks application package and contains both the
FLEXnet license manager and usage report tools.
Altair Licensing
New Features
GridWorks licensing The Altair licensing system now uses GridWorks
Units (GWU). The following changes apply:
A new feature, GridWorks, has been added for
license units.
100 GridWorks units is equivalent to one
HyperWorks unit.
A new set of global license features has been
added: GlobalGridWorksAM,
GlobalGridWorksEU, and GlobalGridWorksAP.
HyperWorks 9.0 (and later) applications will
recognize GridWorks Units only.
License usage tracking The licensing usage monitor and report tools (UMT
and URT) are included in the 9.0 and above License
Manager package. UMT and URT record the usage
of each feature and send a report back to Altair on a
monthly basis. The usage log files that are generated
are in plain text.
Partner software Licensing features for HyperWorks Partner Software
are implemented in the Altair licensing system. This
allows partner software to use an Altair GridWorks
license and check out GridWorks units.
License files The tracking features listed in the license file are now
required to launch a HyperWorks application.
Without the tracking feature, the associated
HyperWorks application will not invoke. Also note
that the number of units of each tracking feature will
be 2147483647, by default. This is for the UMT/URT
and proper tracking.
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 7
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
License Manager License Manager is based on FLEXnet Publisher
V10.8.0.
License Manager has its own package and is not
bundled with the HyperWorks application packages.
License Manager supports the platforms supported
by all Altair products, including HyperWorks.
Resolved Issues
License Manager/UMT/URT The issue related to Automatic Heartbeat has been
corrected.
Reliability has increased in several areas for UMT
and URT.
UMT and URT are more robust with multiple UUID
strings in license files.
The URT transfer issue on platforms with older JDKs
has been resolved.
The UMT polling interval on Windows now works
properly; Correct values are now calculated for
usage.
Licensing System - Installation, Hardware, and Invoking
Removed Features
Operating systems Windows 2000, HP ITANIUM HPUX11-23, IBM AIX
5.1, SGI IRIX, and Linux RedHat EL3.0 are no longer
supported by the HyperWorks GUI applications.
Enhancements

UMT and URT Several UMT/URT reliability issues have been fixed.
UMT now properly handles multiple UUID in a single
license file.
Added manual URT option:
When invoked with urt.bat m, the prepared
usage files are placed into the directory specified in
the ALUS.CONF file.
Installation and launch An upgrade option has been added to the License
Manager installation to keep older configurations and
8 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
allow the installation of new software.
Known Limitations
License Manager FLEXnet 10.8 does not support the Vista32 or 64 bit
platform. To make it work, replace the lmutil,
lmgrd and lmtools executables from FLEXNet
11.4.
Vendor daemon
The License Manager vendor daemon (altair_lm)
may fail to start on Solaris and HPUX machines, due
to insufficient file descriptors. Increasing the hard
limit and soft limit of the maximum number of file
descriptors available for the license manager (lmgrd)
process to 1024 helps resolve this issue.
Multiple license pools There is a limitation on HyperWorks leveling when
working with multiple license pools. This limitation
occurs due to the following FLEXlm characteristics:
Each license pool functions independently of other
license pools and cannot communicate with any
other license pool.
The application tries all license servers in the
order in which they are listed in the
ALTAIR_LM_LICENSE_FILE or
LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variables. The
first available license server that can grant
licenses is used for checkout.
A license pool is a collection of licenses that could
consist of a single license server or a cluster of
redundant servers. Within a single license pool,
you can launch multiple HyperWorks applications
on the same host and with the same display with
the number of licenses consumed being equal to
the number required by the application with the
highest draw of licenses. If launching new
HyperWorks applications by the same UHD
causes licenses to be drawn from a license pool
other than the one previously checked out
(perhaps because the first license pool has run
out of licenses), additional HyperWorks units are
checked out from the second license pool, thus
stacking the licenses.
For a tri-server redundancy licensing setting, it is
recommended that all three servers are physically
located close to each other, and on the same subnet.
Placing three servers in different geographical
locations is not recommended by FLEXNet.
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 9
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
When working with three server license pool
configurations, licenses can be leveled on UNIX (in
most cases) by setting the HW_POOL_SECURITY
environment variable to 1.
lmborrow option
The lmborrow option used to borrow mobile licenses
only works for products that do not stack licenses.
A borrowed license listed in LMTOOLS is not
automatically updated when the license expires.
LMTools
On Windows, the GUI for lmtools ignores the
following environment variables when launching
lmgrd:
ALTAIR_NOLOG
ALTAIR_LOGFILE
ALTAIR_LOG_INTERVAL
As a workaround, start lmgrd from the command
line.
CATIA ttflicense file If you require any of the CATIA V4/V5 readers, you
will need to have the ttfLicenseFile.txt installed. The
current license can be obtained from the Hyperworks
support site.
The ttfLicenseFile.txt file MUST reside in the current
working directory from where lmgrd is launched.
Note that this is different than being in the same
directory, although by default all of the Altair supplied
startup scripts set their current working directory to
where the license file is before starting lmgrd.
Assuming lmgrd, the main license file and the
ttfLicense are in the same directory, simply cd to that
directory before starting lmgrd. On windows, set the
services startup directory to that location.
HyperWorks Application Licensing
New Applications

HyperMath This new application uses 600 GridWorks units.
ScriptView This new application uses 600 GridWorks units.


10 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
Enhancements
OptiStruct - Parallel solution
(SPMD)
The GWU required to run OptiStruct parallel solution
is based on the number of cores used:

1-4 cores
5-8 cores
9-16 cores
17 and higher
5000 GWU
7500 GWU
10000 GWU
15000 GWU
RADIOSS Block format - SPH
and ALE analyses
The analysis now uses 2500 GWU instead of 3800
GWU. The tracking feature has been changed from
RadiossB to RadiossA.
Resolved Issues

Licensing The robustness of how HyperWorks Solvers
(OptiStruct, RADIOSS, and MotionSolve) level and
stack GridWorks units under the same UHD (User,
Host, and Display) has been improved.
An error no longer occurs when HyperStudy levels
and stacks while launching multiple applications.
An error no longer occurs when HyperCrash levels
and stacks while launching multiple applications.
To run RADIOSS parallel solution (SPMD, Single
Process Multiple Data) on 33-64 cores requires 7500
GridWorks units. To run the job on 65-128 cores
requires 10000 GridWorks units.
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 11

HyperMesh 10.0 Release Notes
Altair HyperMesh is a high-performance finite element pre-processor that provides a highly interactive
and visual environment to analyze product design performance. With the broadest set of direct
interfaces to commercial CAD and CAE systems, HyperMesh provides a proven, consistent analysis
platform for the entire enterprise. Focusing on engineering productivity, HyperMesh is the user-
preferred environment for all CAE modeling tasks ranging from geometry clean-up to high-quality
automeshing and analysis set-up.
Altair HyperMesh 10.0 offers many new features that will further improve and automate your CAE
processes, including the new optimization browser view, significant updates to meshing (SPH, Shell
and Solid), and the new 1D element visualization.
See 10.0 API Programmer's Guide for a list of updates to the API commands.
Browsers
New Features
New and improved Model
Browser
In the Model Browser, the interactive entity control
capability between the browser list and the graphics
area now supports all HyperMesh entities. The
Selector, Show/Hide, and Isolate browser action
modes now work for all entities that have display
control. Finding entities and their related properties
via graphic selection is very quick and efficient
allowing for further editing and querying control of
entities.
New optimization browser view The introduction of the optimization model browser
view allows you to setup multiple optimization
problem definitions within a single HyperMesh
session. Easy to use drag-and-drop functionality
allows for very quick optimization problem setup by
moving the optimization definitions from the
optimization repository to the optimization problem
definition. Multiple optimization setups can be saved
to the .hm file; in addition, there is also export control
so that only a single optimization problem can be
exported at any one time. See Model Browser for a
complete explanation of the Model Browser.

Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
CAD Translators
New Features

Support for UG NX6 Support has been added for UG NX6 on
Win32/Win64. NX and NX2 readers have been
removed.
Naming control option when
importing Catia files
The option, @SplitComponentsByChild, has been
added in the CATIA reader to replicate the part/child
naming structure and organization of the CATIA
model using HyperMesh assemblies/components.
Individual entities are organized into the relevant
components, with the components being organized
into relevant assemblies.
New API commands to
calculate the physical
properties of solid geometry
New API commands have been added to calculate
the physical properties of solid geometry (volume,
center of gravity, moments of inertia, mass). For all
CAD readers, the @LoadMassAttributes option will
no longer create metadata for the following values:
.ALTAIR.HW.<FORMAT>.CG
.ALTAIR.HW.<FORMAT>.INTERTIA_PRODUCTS
.ALTAIR.HW.<FORMAT>.MOMENTS_OF_INERTIA
.ALTAIR.HW.<FORMAT>.MASS
.ALTAIR.HW.<FORMAT>.VOLUME
As an addition, the CATIA, Parasolid, Pro/E, and
UG readers will create metadata for the density if
it is available in the CAD model in the format
.ALTAIR.HW.<FORMAT>.DENSITY.
New option to read tags as
metadata
The option, @TagsAsMetadata, has been added to
the CATIA, IGES, Pro/E, UG, and VDAFS readers for
importing tags (names) as metadata attached to the
relevant entities.
Enhancements

Improved solid geometry
import performance
The performance of solid geometry import for the
CAD readers that import solid entities has been
improved.

Adhesive support to connector
property scripts
Adhesive support to connector property scripts has been
added for:
prop_abaqus_acm.tcl
prop_nastran_acm.tcl (called prop_acm.tcl in
HyperMesh 9.0)
prop_type2.tcl
Solid bolt hole support Bolt connectors can now realize to solid elements
and will attach every node within the solid hole. This
is the default behavior.
If you would like to revert to the old behavior (just
tying to the top and bottom rings) you can edit the
hm.cfg file by adding the line
*ce_fe_solid_bolt_setup(0).
Seam adhesives A new capability for creating adhesive realization
using seam connector (building continuous hexa
using lines as input) has been implemented. The
adhesive parameters such as the width, thickness,
and number of strips along the width and thickness
can all be defined during realization. This is more
flexible than the area connector feature.
Seam adhesives are supported from the panel and
can also be read in from a connector MCF.
Assemblies as links In addition to components, elements, nodes, and
tags, assemblies are now supported as link entities
for connector realizations
Enhancements

Easier loading of property
script for custom weld types
A search for the property script now occurs in the
directory from which the feconfig.cfg file is first
loaded.
Realization performance The RADIOSS type2 realization performance has
been improved.
Improved DOF support DOF is supported for more 1D element types
including weld, rigid, spring, and bars.


HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 15

Geometry

New Features

Midsurfacing R/T parameter Midsurfacing R/T parameter is a new feature to
control midsurface extraction for T- and X-
connections. This provides better control of
midsurface extraction for these types of connections.
New panels and functionality lines > offset subpanel
This new line offset functionality is combined with the
old midline subpanel. This functionality allows lines
to be offset along their direction of curvature either
continuously or variably. Options also exist to specify
the start point of the line and the type of line to create
when the direction of curvature changes within the
line.
surfaces > fillets subpanel
This creates constant width fillets across shared
surface edges. Controls allow the original geometry
to be trimmed, deleted and stitched, or simply for the
new fillet surfaces to be created without modifying
the original input surfaces.
solids > drag along line sub-panel
Solids can now be created by dragging one or more
input surfaces along a line. Advanced options
include the ability to move the location of the drag
line, drag along the line +/- direction, control the way
in which the surface is dragged (frame mode), and
specify the solid splitting and organization based on
the input surfaces. (drag along normal and drag
along vector are also separated out as sub-panels.)
Meshing

Solid Meshing
TetraMesh Process Manager
Template
Tetramesh Process Manager Template is a new
process based tool to enable users to tetramesh
models in a reduced timeframe. Significant time
reductions can be achieved when using the tool to
tetmesh CAD data. A typical example is a powertrain
application, however the tool is designed to be a
generic aid for tetmeshing. The main bulk of tetmesh
model build time is usually spent in cleaning and
16 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
organizing geometry. Within the tool, there are
specific steps to help guide you through various
operations such as organizing surfaces around holes,
and fillet recognition and handling. These features
can be treated separately from the rest of the model,
for example you can have a very specific mesh
criteria whereas the rest of the model can have a
more relaxed mesh criteria where the feature capture
is less critical.
Interactive solid map meshing Improvements to the solid map functionality include a
new capability that exposes full interactive mesh
editing control of the solid before solid map mesh
generation. After solid selection, the solid map panel
takes you into the interactive mode where you can
control the mesh density, element type, and mesh
method before creating the solid mesh.
Sliver tetra element fix Fix Sliver Tetra Elements is a new tool that fixes all
sliver and wedge elements based on a pre-defined
3D mesh criteria. There are numerous options that
allow the boundary nodes and internal nodes to
move, as well as options that allow complete control
over whether you wish to fix either sliver or wedge, or
both types of elements. The functionality is located in
the Geom/Mesh utility menu.
Enhancements

Updates to Fix 2nd Order
MidNodes utility
Fix 2nd Order Midnodes utility has been updated
with options to allow movement of the internal middle
nodes and an option to move boundary nodes along
geometry first or move off geometry, if required.
Surface Meshing
New Features

Mesh flow functionality New mesh flow functionality has been introduced in
the automesh panel. The flow:align option
produces a more orthogonal quad dominated mesh.
The flow:size option in conjunction with the align
option enforces the global mesh element size with
minimal min/max element size variation. Both options
improve the flow of the mesh and also improve QI
element quality.


HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 17
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
Automesh using free lines Automesh using free lines is a new feature where
instead of using the feature edge or automatic
feature edge detection, you can use the lines option.
When remeshing, you can define a line that may or
may not be on the plane of the elements, and upon
remeshing, the mesh ensures that there is node
seeding along the chosen free line.
Shrink wrap meshing Shrink wrap meshing now includes an option to
enable solid mesh generation. The new generate
solid mesh option is available for both the Loose
and Tight shrink wrap algorithms the output is an
all hexa mesh model. There is an additional
parameter called minimum jacobian; this option
essentially controls the proximity of the solid mesh to
the original features while ensuring the solid mesh
meets the pre-defined element quality. The tight
algorithm has been improved to capture more
features without the need to manually define
features. The performance for ShrinkWrap has also
improved.
SPH meshing SPH meshing (for RADIOSS Block, LS-DYNA, and
PAM-CRASH) is a new functionality used to generate
Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), Finite Point
Method (FPM) elements. SPH/FPM elements are
used for analyzing bodies that do not have high
cohesive forces among themselves and undergo
large deformation, such as liquids and gases. The
SPH/FPM elements are given a pre-defined density
or total mass. There are additional features that allow
a partial fill of the selected volume along with
direction control for the partial fill. The functionality is
accessible via the 1D > sph panel in the RADIOSS
(Block), Ls-dyna, or Pamcrash user profiles.
OSSmooth multi-layer auto-
bead generation
OSSmooth has been updated to support two-layer
auto-bead generation. The benefits of the two-layer
auto-bead functionality include significant
improvements to the interpolation of the
topographical results. As a result of the updates to
the isosurface generation, OSSmooth performance
has improved. Remeshing is now available for both
auto-bead and isosurface parameters. The
parameters in the .oss file format have also been
reorganized; the ability to turn on/off auto-bead and
isosurface parameters separately is now available.

Enhancements

Improvements to Add Washer,
Trim Hole, Fill Hole, and Bead
utilities
Add Washer, Trim Hole, Fill Hole, and Bead utilities
have been updated and are now included in core
HyperMesh functionality. As a result, the robustness,
performance, and quality of meshed output has
significantly improved when comparing the same
feature in previous releases of HyperMesh.
CFD Meshing
New Features

CFD meshing updates The robustness of the algorithm has been improved;
more use cases are now supported. Within the latest
version there are also updates to the surface
projection and tolerance algorithms.
The boundary layer thickness of the resulting mesh is
closer to the user-defined target than in previous
releases. In general, the boundary layer thickness
variation on uniformly curved regions should be
within 10%.
Unoffsetable nodes for regular tetra meshing with
quad transitions can be handled.
Batch Meshing
New Features

Mesh flow functionality New mesh flow functionality has been added to the
batchmesher, the flow:align and flow:size
functionality is accessed via the Criteria and
Parameters File Editor > Parameters tab.
Improved feature capture -
preserve rounded bead midline
The Preserve rounded bead midline option has
been added, which forces nodes to be placed along
the midline of a rounded bead the functionality is
accessed via the Criteria and Parameters File
Editor > Parameters tab.





HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 19

Penetration Check
Enhancements

Performance improvements Multithreading for penetration and intersection check
has been added. For multi-core machines, the
performance gains are considerable now that the
penetration check utilizes all available CPUs. The
performance improvements vary per model and
machine specification; typically, you could expect a
performance improvement between 40% - 70%.
Miscellaneous

New Features

1D element visualization A new 3D graphical representation has been
introduced for all displayed 1D elements. The primary
purpose of this functionality is to allow you to visually
verify that model data is correctly entered instead of
having to review the text details of the element and
property card images to do the same. 1D elements
properly visualize beam section geometry,
orientation, and offset, at both ends A and B. Only
constant beam section and thickness elements are
considered. Graphics selection, pre-highlighting, and
highlighting for the 3D graphical representations
behave as their 1D counterpart representations.
New visualization GUI The old style visualization pop-up has been replaced
with a new visualization GUI for controlling
visualization options for connectors, constraints,
loads, morphing, topology, systems, and vectors.
Enhancements

Graphics updates New graphics representation for mass/0D elements.
The mass/0D elements are now represented by a
very small sphere; the mass/0D element display is
treated the same as all other element or component
display.
API updates Numerous API requests and enhancements have
been included; review 10.0 API Programmer's Guide
for further details.

RADIOSS 10.0 Release Notes
RADIOSS is a state-of-the-art finite element solver uniting implicit and explicit integration schemes for
the solution of a wide variety of engineering problems, from linear statics and linear dynamics to
complex nonlinear transient dynamics and mechanical systems. This robust, multidisciplinary solver
enables designers to maximize performance related to durability, NVH, crash, safety,
manufacturability, and fluid-structure interaction, in order to bring innovative products to market faster.
RADIOSS 10.0 again brings much advancement over previous versions, with emphasis in the areas
of performance, frequency response analysis, acoustic response analysis, fatigue analysis, and
contact modeling.
General
Resolved Issues
License stacking The licensing mechanism on Windows and Linux
operating systems no longer stacks licenses when
they should be leveled.
RADIOSS Bulk Data Format
New Features
Parallel solution (SPMD) on
Linux
A parallel solution has been implemented on Linux
platforms for linear static, linear buckling, and direct
frequency response subcases.

Models containing only these subcase types may be
solved in parallel across multiple nodes. If other
subcase types are present in the model, all subcases
will be solved in series on one node.

The parallelization technique is Single Program
Multiple Data (SPMD), and uses the message
passing interface, HP-MPI.

Sensitivities related to these subcase types are also
solved in parallel.
Iterative solver (PCG) An iterative Preconditioned Conjugate Gradient
(PCG) method is now available for the solution of
linear static problems.

This solver may be selected at the subcase level
using the SOLVTYP selector.
32 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering

This iterative solver may provide significant
performance gains over the traditional direct solver
for large solid models.
Fluid super-elements Component Mode Synthesis (CMS) may now be
used to generate external superelements (DMIG) for
combined fluid-structure models.
Free convection The linear steady-state heat-transfer solution is
enhanced with a free convection boundary condition.

The boundary condition (CONV) may be defined on
thermal surface elements (CHBDYE) allowing
thermal communication between a structure and the
ambient environment.
Internal heat generation The linear steady-state heat-transfer solution has
been enhanced to consider internal heat generation.

A volumetric rate of heat generation (QVOL) may be
defined for a list of heat conduction elements.
Strain-life fatigue analysis A strain-life solution has been implemented for
fatigue analysis.

The implementation uses the Neuber correction
together with a cyclic stress-strain curve and a
hysteresis loop equation to get stress/strain under
cyclic loading. An equivalent strain approach is
applied to query life from strain-life curve.
Contact interface definition A new contact interface definition (CONTACT) has
been implemented for quasi-static non-linear
analysis.

The definition is a master-slave type.
Frequency dependent damping
element
A new frequency dependent damping element
(PBUSHT) is available.
Grid participation output For acoustic analysis, it is now possible to output grid
participation results (PFGRID, PFMODE, PFPANEL).

MIO support for AIX MIO file caching can now be used on AIX computers.
Memory management On 64-bit platforms, RADIOSS does not impose any
limitation on the allocation of RAM available on the
computer. In previous versions, the maximum
memory was limited to 32GB.
Quasi-static non-linear
analysis
Speed improvements were made for quasi-static
non-linear analysis.

The speed-up is most noticeable for models with a
small number of gaps or a small contact area (where
the new contact interface definition is used).
Result output for transient
analysis
Result recovery and output for transient analysis is
now faster.
Coordinate systems for stress,
strain, and force results
For solid and shell elements, the default output
coordinate system for stress, strain, and force results
has been changed to be the material system,
whenever defined.

For shell elements, PARAM,OMID may be used to
switch between the material and elemental system
for these results.
Fluid-structure interface matrix
for AMLS
For acoustic analysis using the AMLS eigensolver,
developed by the University of Texas, a more
efficient method of calculating the fluid-structure
interface matrix has been implemented.
Hyper3D 10.0 Hyper3D libraries have been upgraded to the latest
version.
PENTA15 element formulation The element formulation for PENTA15 elements has
been improved.

Results may differ from previous versions because of
these enhancements.
XYPUNCH output Results output via the XYPEAK, XYPLOT, and
XYPUNCH controls are now output in the same order

General The stiffness matrix for CBUSH elements with the
2nd grid left blank is now properly transformed back
to the local coordinate system from the basic
coordinate system.
The rotational DOF of rigid elements can now be
removed when there are mass inertial terms
associated with the grid.
When the total strain energy is zero, division by zero
is avoided.

residual vector calculation is only written to the .out
file when applicable.
When the RHO field on the MAT10 bulk data entry is
left blank, the derived value has been corrected.
Transient analysis For direct transient analysis, the CDAMP1 label is
now output to the PUNCH format when SORT2 is the
selected output order.
Component mode synthesis DMIG output now includes WTMASS scaling.
Licensing for suspend/resume On UNIX/Linux platforms an issue related to license
handling when suspending/resuming a job has been
resolved.
Available number of CPUs on
AIX
The number of CPUs is now determined correctly for
CPUs where SMT is available but disabled.

for nonstiff and stiff problems.
Static Find the static equilibrium configuration
Quasi-static Find the sequence of static equilibria under slowly
varying motion or force input (quasi static means almost
static.)
Linear Linearizing the nonlinear equations of motion provides
two kinds of useful information: 1) eigenvalues and
normal modes that tell us about stability, natural
frequencies, and vibration mode shapes, and 2)
linearized equations of motion that are useful for
designing control systems.
General
New Features
New Modeling Elements

CONSTRAINT_MATE CONSTRAINT_MATE element is used to specify
mating constraints between geometric primitives. It
differs from CONSTRAINT_JOINT and
CONSTRAINT_JPRIM in that it specifies more
general constraints based on distance, tangency, and
coincidence relations between mating geometries.
CONSTRAINT_GENERAL CONSTRAINT_GENERAL element can be used to
specify arbitrary constraints in terms of time and
system states.
New User Subroutines
SET_DISCRETE_INTERFACE The SET_DISCRETE_INTERFACE subroutine tells
MotionSolve to call SFOSUB, VFOSUB, VTOSUB,
GFOSUB, DIFSUB, or VARSUB user subroutines
discretely at successful integration steps. This is
important for cosimulation between MotionSolve and
another solver such as Simulink.
POST_SUB The POST_SUB user subroutine is used to generate
a custom output file or perform custom processing of
MotionSolve results. It can be used for real-time
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 47
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
animation or plotting.
MESSAGE_SUB The MESSAGE_SUB subroutine is used to generate
customized solver messages.
GET_STATES The GET_STATES user subroutine is used for
extracting state variables in a MotionSolve model. It
is meant for use only with the Post_Sub user-written
subroutine to extract MotionSolve results for output to
a file or further processing for real time animation and
plotting.
MODSET The MODSET subroutine accesses and modifies the
model data as specified in the xml solver input file. It
may be called from any user-written subroutine.
GCOSUB The GCOSUB user subroutine is used in conjunction
with the CONSTRAINT_GENERAL modeling
element to define arbitrary constraints.
Customization capabilities Capabilities are included for broad and deep
customization of MotionSolve to suit the needs of
individual modeling domains such as automotive and
biomechanics.
Custom functions Custom functions allow expert users to expand the
set of MotionSolve functions by adding new
functions. For instance, automotive users may create
a function called CAMBER to compute the tire
camber angle. Such functions may be used exactly
like built-in functions such as DX and DM.
Custom statements Custom statements allow expert users to expand the
set of MotionSolve model elements by adding new
standard model elements. Such elements can be
mapped to one or more built-in elements.
Custom messaging Custom messaging refers to the ability to pass
MotionSolve messages directly to MESSAGE_SUB
user-written subroutine. This allows users to modify
standard MotionSolve messages, or append
additional comments to them.
Custom results output Custom results output refers to use of POST_SUB
and GET_STATES user subroutines to create
customized output files. MotionSolve calls
POST_SUB at every successful integration time step.
48 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
Users have access to all the same data that passed
to the MotionSolve MRF file.
Custom translation rules Custom translation rules refers to the ability to modify
the translation of ADAMS dataset files into
MotionSolve XML files. This is done via a mapping
file, which specifies rules that override the default
translation rules.
Cosimulation with Simulink Cosimulation between MotionSolve and Simulink is
provided in this release. It allows users to simulate
Simulink subsystems acting in concert with
MotionSolve multibody systems. For instance, users
can now simulate the response of a MotionSolve
vehicle model to a traction controller modeled in
Simulink. This is accomplished by frequent data
exchange between MotionSolve and Simulink during
the simulation.
Other enhancements CONTROL_DIFF elements of type Implicit are now
supported with FIM_D and FIM_S static solvers.
A style sheet (XSL) and schema definition (XSD) are
now available on the Altair web site for the
MotionSolve XML file format. XML files generated by
Altair software contain a reference to the style sheet
and schema. The style sheet allows MotionSolve
XML files to be formatted into neat tables in a web
browser. The schema definition allows certain XML
editors such as Microsoft Visual Studio to check and
validate the XML files during editing.

OptiStruct 10.0 Release Notes
OptiStruct is an award winning CAE technology for conceptual design synthesis and structural
optimization. OptiStruct 10.0 again brings much advancement over previous versions, with emphasis
in the areas of acoustic optimization, fatigue optimization, random response optimization, MBD
system level optimization, and design interpretation through OSSmooth.
Optimization
New Features
Acoustic optimization A new pressure response type considers acoustic
behavior in the optimization problem.
Fatigue optimization New damage and life response types allow fatigue
performance to be considered in an optimization
problem.
A global damage or life target can be defined on the
DTPL card for topology optimization.
Random response
optimization
New PSD and RMS response types allow random
response performance to be considered in an
optimization problem.
MBD system level optimization New MBD system level responses allow the
performance of MBD system responses to be
considered in an optimization run in addition to
structural responses based on the Equivalent Static
Load Method (ESLM). The MBD system level
responses are handled through Adaptive Response
Surface Method (ARSM) (see the HyperStudy online
help) during the optimization process.
In addition to ARSM, the advanced approximation
strategies used in MBD system level optimization
allow a large number of design variables to be
handled efficiently.
Thermal and Thermo-
mechanical optimization
A new temperature response type enables heat
transfer optimization.
Sensitivities for thermo-mechanical coupling are now
calculated, allowing optimization problems involving
thermo-mechanical coupling.

50 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
System identification In addition to minimizing (or maximizing) responses,
and minimizing the maximum (or maximizing the
minimum) of multiple responses, it is now possible to
provide target values for responses as the objective
function for an optimization problem. This is
commonly referred to as system identification. There
are two possibilities:
1. Minimize the least squares function of all
selected targeted responses.
2. Minimize the maximum (or maximize the
minimum) relative difference for all selected
targeted responses.
Group override for DESVAR
settings
A new group override definition eases design
variable manipulation. The group override definition
allows you to change the initial, lower, and upper
bound settings for any set of DESVAR cards in the
model.
Adjoint sensitivity for
frequency responses analysis
The adjoint method of sensitivity calculation has been
added for frequency responses analysis.
For frequency response problems that consider a
broad frequency range and a large number of design
variables, this provides significant performance
gains.
Design variable connectivity
relationships
Design variable relationships are expanded to
include fields on connectivity definitions. This is
facilitated through the DVCREL# bulk data entries.
Enhancements
Coordinate systems for
stress/strain responses
Stress and strain responses used in optimization
problems will now use the same coordinate system
as the analysis results, except when PARAM,OMID
is used to indicate otherwise.

Previously stress and strain optimization responses
were always with reference to the basic coordinate
system (or projected basic coordinate system), while
stress and strain analysis results could be output with
reference to basic, elemental, or user-defined
systems. In version 10.0, by default, the stress and
strain optimization responses are with reference to
the same coordinate system as the analysis result.
PARAM, OMID can be used to revert to the previous
method.
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 51
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
Thermo-mechanical
optimization
Sensitivities for thermo-mechanical coupling are now
calculated.

This improves optimization performance for problems
involving thermo-mechanical coupling.
Automatic constraint
screening
Automatic constraint screening is active by default.

Constraint screening has long played an important
role in filtering non-critical constraints out of the
optimization problem. Its early implementation relied
heavily on user-definition of screening region and
criteria.

In version 9.0, a new automatic screening feature
was implemented where the constraint screening
zones were auto-determined and the constraint
screening parameters adjusted to suit the problem at
hand.

Due to the success of this automatic constraint
screening feature, it was decided to adopt this as the
default in version 10.0. Further enhancements were
also made to this functionality.
Ply-based composite
optimization
The format of the STACK bulk data entry has been
enhanced to allow identification of sub-stacks

This change was required to account for adjoining
parts such as T-connections, where sub-stacks split
off from the main laminate and then form new
laminates.
A new draping bulk data entry has been added.

This allows orientation and thickness information
from third party draping solutions to be incorporated
into the composite design process.
Free-shape optimization A new mesh smoothing algorithm was added for free-
shape optimization.

The new algorithm can significantly improve the
mesh quality during shape changes. It also delays
possible pre-mature terminations due to
unacceptable levels of mesh distortion.

There may be some increased computational effort
with this new method.

52 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
OSSmooth The autobead feature is enhanced to allow a 2-level
interpretation of topography optimization results.
Significant improvements have been made in
memory allocation and speed for iso-density
boundary surface creation.
Significant improvements have been made to the
Laplacian smoothing algorithm.
Integration of OSSmooth into HyperMesh provides
enhanced remeshing functionality.
Quadrilaterial elements can now be output for
Nastran, IGES, and H3D formats.
Resolved Issues
License stacking The licensing mechanism on Windows and Linux
operating systems no longer stacks licenses when
they should be leveled.
RAM allocation on Windows
XP 32-bit
A problem on Windows XP 32-bit, where the
operating system was limiting the amount of RAM
available to OptiStruct to 1.4GB has been resolved.

OptiStruct 10.0 can use up to 1.9GB RAM.
Sensitivities Speedup of sensitivity analysis for linear static
subcases
Speed improvements for sensitivity calculations for
modal FRF analysis.
Memory estimate improved for FRF sensitivity
calculation
Composite optimization OUTPUT,FSTOSZ and OUTPUT,SZTOSH are fixed
for input decks using the .fem extension.
A correction was made for composite free-sizing with
DOPTPRM MINDIM.
Support was added for Z0 and NSM as designable
properties for PCOMPP.
A change was made to OUTPUT, SZTOSH to
prevent the creation of duplicate IDs.
The generation of the initial stack was improved such
that it should always satisfy the manufacturing
constraints
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 53
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
Responses Region IDs are now generated correctly when
DRESP2 responses are referenced on other
DRESP2 or DRESP3 responses.
Support was added for
DVMREL1/DVMREL2/DVCREL1/DVCREL2 on
DRESP2 and DRESP3.
Licensing for suspend/resume On UNIX/Linux platforms an issue related to license
handling when suspending/resuming a job has been
resolved.
Available number of CPUs on
AIX
The number of CPUs is now determined correctly for
CPUs where SMT is available but disabled.
Known Limitations
MBD system level optimization The CONM2 contribution is not considered in the
calculation of MBD responses MBMASS, MBCOG
and MBINERTIA.
Analysis
New Features

Parallel solution (SPMD) on
Linux
A parallel solution is implemented on Linux
platforms for linear static, linear buckling, and direct
frequency response subcases.

Models containing only these subcase types may
be solved in parallel across multiple nodes. If other
subcase types are present in the model, all
subcases will be solved in series on one node.

The parallelization technique is Single Program
Multiple Data (SPMD), and uses the message
passing interface HP-MPI.

Sensitivities related to these subcase types are
also solved in parallel.
Iterative solver (PCG) An iterative preconditioned conjugate gradient
(PCG) method is now available for the solution of
linear static problems.

This solver may be selected at the subcase level
using the SOLVTYP selector.
54 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering

This iterative solver may provide significant
performance gains over the traditional direct solver
for large solid models.
Fluid super-elements Component Mode Synthesis (CMS) may now be
used to generate external superelements (DMIG) for
combined Fluid-Structure models.
Free convection The linear steady-state heat-transfer solution is
enhanced with a free convection boundary condition.
The boundary condition (CONV) may be defined on
thermal surface elements (CHBDYE) allowing
thermal communication between a structure and the
ambient environment.
Internal heat generation The linear steady-state heat-transfer solution is
enhanced to consider internal heat generation.

A volumetric rate of heat generation (QVOL) may be
defined for a list of heat conduction elements.
Strain-life fatigue analysis A strain-life solution is implemented for fatigue
analysis.

The implementation uses the Neuber correction
together with a cyclic stress-strain curve and a
hysteresis loop equation to get stress/strain under
cyclic loading. An equivalent strain approach is
applied to query life from strain-life curve.
Contact interface definition A new contact interface definition (CONTACT) is
implemented for quasi-static non-linear analysis
Frequency dependent damping
element
A new frequency dependent damping element
(PBUSHT) is available.
Grid participation output For acoustic analysis it is now possible to output grid
participation results (PFGRID, PFMODE, PFPANEL).
Output of flexbodies in mnf
format
.mnf files are now output directly.

Enhancements

Porting The solver is now ported on Sun x86_64 platform.
MIO support for AIX MIO file caching can now be used on AIX computers.
Memory management On 64-bit platforms, RADIOSS does not impose any
limitation on the allocation of RAM available on the
computer. In previous versions, the maximum
memory was limited to 32GB.
Quasi-static non-linear
analysis
Speed improvements were made for quasi-static
non-linear analysis.

The speed-up is most noticeable for models with a
small number of gaps or a small contact area (where
the new contact interface definition is used).
Result output for transient
analysis
Speed improvements were made in result recovery
and output for transient analysis.
Coordinate systems for stress,
strain, and force results
For solid and shell elements, the default output
coordinate system for stress, strain and force results
is changed to be the material system, whenever
defined.

For shell elements, PARAM,OMID may be used to
switch between the material and elemental system
for these results.
Fluid-structure interface matrix
for AMLS
For acoustic analysis using the AMLS eigensolver,
developed by the University of Texas, a more
efficient method of calculating the fluid-structure
interface matrix has been implemented.
Hyper3D 10.0 Hyper3D libraries have been upgraded to the latest
version.
PENTA15 element formulation The element formulation for PENTA15 elements has
been improved.

Results may differ from previous versions because of
these enhancements.

HyperView 10.0 Release Notes
Altair HyperView is a complete post-processing and visualization environment for finite element
analysis (FEA), multi-body system simulation, video, and engineering data. Amazingly fast 3D
graphics, open architecture design, and unparalleled functionality set a new standard for speed and
detailed post-processing of CAE results. HyperView enables engineers to visualize data interactively
as well as capture, standardize, and automate post-processing activities.
HyperView 10.0 continues to lead in performance and usability in a truly integrated post-processing
environment. New features in HyperView 10.0 include the Report Parameter browser for automation,
an interactive model browser, streamlines, user-defined system, synchronized view, envelope tracing,
and H3D export of linear superposition. Many known issues from earlier versions have been resolved,
improving quality and user-friendliness.
General
New Features
Interactive model browser All display manipulation can be exercised through the
new highly powerful, interactive model browser. The
extended functionality of the browser enables three-
way interactions between browser, graphics, and the
panels.
Based on the familiar HyperMesh browser
technology, selections made in the graphics are
highlighted in the browser, and vice-versa. By
controlling the display of the model using different
modes (Show, Hide, and Isolate) and depth
selection of entities on screen, mouse travel is
greatly reduced.
The browser tree lists assemblies, components, sets
(node, element, or component), and systems all in
one view for easy navigation. Model and component
view simplifies the browser tree for specific
operations.
The browser view extends to multiple models when
models are overlaid in an animation window. Various
sorting, filtering, and configuring options customize
the view according to user preferences.
User-defined context menus (right-click) for specific
operations can be hooked up through preference
statements.
The browser can be turned on or off from View >
Browser.


HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 61
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
CFD - Streamlines Streamline creation for steady state flow is a new
feature in HyperView. The CFD - Streamlines panel
allows you to define multiple line and area rakes, with
options to control the number of seeds and the
integration mode (downstream, upstream, or both
directions).
The streamlines for a given rake are calculated
based on nodal bound results such as velocity. The
integration method and termination criteria are
controlled through Advanced options.
The display of the rake and streamlines can be
altered from the panel or the model browser.
Streamlines can be colored according to contours or
fixed sets. In addition, streamlines can be visualized
as tubes.
Ensight binary and ascii readers are included for
reading results from most CFD solvers
Streamlines and rake definitions can be exported to
an H3D file for viewing in HyperView Player.
Parameter Browser for
automation
The new Parameter Browser defines parameters for
report templates. It is accessed from View >
Parameter Browser. Report templates allow you to
compare iterations in Overlay or Append mode.
Instead of hard coding the IDs or values in a session
(e.g. measure IDs or note colors) parameters can be
defined such that a new iteration corresponding to a
different ID scheme can be overlaid/appended in
exactly the same layout as the baseline results.
Parameters can be defined on any session, and the
value is input by the user when the template is
instantiated from the Reports panel for a new
iteration. The parameters take the default value from
the existing session, which can be changed by the
user before saving a template.
All the parameters defined in a session file are stored
both in the session file and the report template, so
the information is not lost after the session is closed.
Model title, subcase ID, measures, notes, section
cuts, and tracking systems can be parameterized
User-defined system A user-defined coordinate system can be added to
an existing session.
The coordinate system can be rectangular,
cylindrical, or spherical. The creation of a user-
defined system is possible by specifying nodes in the
model, or by global coordinates.
62 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
The system represents a fixed coordinate system. All
results transformation based on the user-defined
system are supported.
A user-defined system can be created from the
browser, graphics context menu, or from the Utilities
> User Defined System menu.
View synchronization Dynamic view synchronization is supported across
animation windows. The new feature is a core
implementation and extends the functionality to
mouse and space ball control.
Once started, the synchronization mode is active
across all selected windows. In combination with the
view controls on the permanent menu buttons, fixed
rotations, model panning, and stored retrieved views
are synchronized. The mode is turned off by explicitly
stopping the synchronization.
View synchronization can be started or stopped from
the graphics context menu, or from the Utilities
menu.
Envelope tracing The Envelope option on the Utilities menu gives the
maximum, minimum, or extreme values across
selected loadsteps or simulations. It is now possible
to identify the significant loadstep or simulation that
contributes to the max/min/extreme condition.
The Envelope trace plot option on the Contour
panel allows you to get a quilt plot of subcases or
simulations in the envelope.
Ply based results processing Ply based results processing organizes all composite
plies/layers under one selection. By selecting a
particular result type, it is possible to cycle through
individual plies and find maximum, minimum, or
extreme values across all the plies.
In addition to maximum, minimum, or extreme values
across all plies, you can identify the ply that
contributes to the max/min/extreme condition.
With the envelope definition for a given ply, you can
identify the most significant subcase or a simulation
that contributes to a max/min/extreme across all
subcases.
Panel defaults Almost all of the panels in HyperView can have
default settings for various entries. With the help of
preference file statements, the toolbar icons, data
types, scale factors, averaging options, and display
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 63
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
options can be set.
By registering preferences with selected defaults,
user profiles can be set up for different disciplines.
Refer to Setting Panel Defaults in HyperView.
Context menu - Active Model
Edit
For the convenience of transferring a model between
different windows, a graphics context menu based
operation on the active model has been introduced.
The active model in any window can be cut, copied,
and pasted to other windows through the context
menu options Cut/Copy/Paste. The operation is
performed only on the active model, and the state of
the model is restored in the destination window.
The keystrokes Ctrl-X, Ctrl-C, and Ctrl-V are linked to
cut, copy, and paste.
Report template layers support Each instance of a report template is associated with
a layer in the session. Layers support for animations
allows you to control the display of all the model
curves that are linked to a particular layer. This
feature is accessed from the menu bar, Tools >
Reports > Layers.
Quick Query tool tip To conveniently query the model, a context menu
item is available for parts, elements, nodes, and
systems. If there is a contour applied for the model,
Quick Query also shows the contour by clicking on
the entity during the query mode.
Save/Retrieve configuration
file for linear superposition
and envelope
All the derived loadstep definitions can be saved to a
text file for use in a different session.
The syntax of the definition file is similar to the
HvTrans configuration file. All the block definitions
with scale factors and simulations can be appended
to a regular configuration file of HvTrans resulting in
derived subcases created within the H3D file.
Enhancements
H3D export of linear
superposition
A linear superposition loadcase can be exported to
H3D. All results selected for export are calculated
based on combining the individual simulation steps
and the scale factors.
In addition to the linear static results, H3D export is
supported for linearly superimposed complex results
and modal animation.
64 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
The resulting H3D file size is drastically smaller
compared to the original set of files with individual
simulation steps. All files exported from HyperView
can be viewed in HyperView Player.
Max/min contour value of a
selection
With a contour applied, the extended selection (By
Contour option) allows you to find the max/min of a
quick selection window/region. Two new options Max
of Window and Min of Window are supported under
this selection for nodes, elements, components, and
collectors.
Keystroke binding Ctrl-A, Delete keys are supported for most of the
panel tree controls
(Section Cut, Measures, Notes, Tracking, FLD,
Collision Detection, Explosion, and Sets panels).
Contour panel A contour offset value is available in the Contour
panel for offsetting the results by a positive or
negative value. In combination with the multiplier and
offset, you can generate new contours of math
operations such as y=mx+c. Safety factors and
temperature conversions are typical examples where
you can take advantage of the offset and multipliers
on existing result data.
A improved legend is plotted for signed von Mises
results. All entities that are in tension and
compression are colored with shades of reds and
blues, respectively, to easily identify the regions.
Transparency and Fill color are supported for
contour legends.
Result types with alpha numeric labels are ordered in
a user-friendly way, sorted by the dictionary order.
Result types and components displayed in a list box
can be scrolled using the up and down arrow keys.
Notes panel Move to Entity snaps a note to the entity to which it
is attached.
Multi select allows you to create multiple notes at
once. All display options and text descriptions are
applied to the newly created notes. Fields that use
Templex expressions as a text description are
evaluated for each note individually.
Set (Create Groups) panel Part groups have a new shaded draw style mode. All
parts belonging to a group can be shaded to the
group color. The original part color is not affected
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 65
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
when the group shading is inactive.
Exporting groups containing ID ranges has been
optimized.
Measures panel Multiple measure items can be created for single
entity measures. The measures are of the type
position, relative displacement, Yaw Pitch Roll, and
entity contour.
With the multi select mode, the extended selection or
quick window selection (with the Shift key) is
available for selecting numerous items at once.
Vector panel An option is now available to show value at the tip of
the vector.
Apply Style Apply Style now supports loadcase and simulation
step as one of the selections for applying settings
across the animation windows
API additions Shell element, normal vector, and element centroid
are available through the query mode command layer
API.
HvTrans HvTrans now supports the linear superposition and
envelope definitions in the configuration file (batch
mode only). Multiple configuration files with the
definition of a derived loadcase is supported. The
configuration file can be written out from an existing
HyperView definition.
An option is now available in the GUI to create
multiple H3D files, one per simulation step.
Simulation steps selection is enhanced in the GUI
with the Shift key.
Resolved Issues
Panel list boxes An issue with navigating the drop down list boxes
when changing result types in the Contour panel or
the Vector panel has been resolved. Selecting the
drop down and pressing the up/down arrow on the
keyboard no longer takes the cursor back to the top
of the list, instead it moves to the next result type as
expected. Also, pressing any letter on the keyboard
cycles through all result types in the drop down that
begin with that letter.
66 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
Orphan nodes Orphan nodes in HyperView are the nodes that are
not physically connected to a structure. These are
joints, sensor points, pretension elements, etc.
defined in different solvers that are not connected to
any 1D/2D/3D elements. Orphan nodes are now
imported from the model and placed in a separate
node set for cross referencing.
Any tracking systems defined in legacy H3D files with
the orphan node work correctly.

been resolved.
Miscellaneous The memory leak that occurred when animating
results and switching between subcases has been
fixed.
In limited cases, the linear superposition is order
dependent with complex results. This happens when
the data is sparse, and the combined result is
dependent on the order in which simulations are
added. This issue has been resolved and linear
superposition is no longer order dependent.
Right mouse click settings under Tools > Options >
Mouse works correctly for all options including the
Context menu.
The issue of showing unchanged animations when a

blocks of improper size has been corrected.
Known Limitations

Parameter Browser for
automation
The Parameter browser is intended to be operated in
an authoring mode, where the session layout and
format is already established, and parameters are
defined on the existing objects. If any objects are
deleted, the parameters defined on these objects are
not automatically deleted.
Overlaying more than one instance of a report
template results in parameters being inactive.
Session files and report templates save all defined
parameters for restore. However, any multiple
overlay operation disables the state of the
parameters.
All deleted objects, cut and paste of windows and
pages may not update the parameters correctly. It is
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 71
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
recommended to perform all edit operations on the
session before defining any parameters.
H3D export Streamlines are sensitive to the numerical round-off
that happens during data compression of the field
results. As a consequence, the streamlines
generated from a compressed H3D file may not
match the original streamlines if the compression is
too high. Export H3D without compression to get
matching streamlines with the original data.
H3D export of envelope subcase comes back in
HyperView as a regular subcase. Some of the
options available for envelope subcase may not be
available with the exported H3D file.
Miscellaneous Legacy (version 9.0 and earlier) H3D files that
contain MBD models may not display values at the
vector. The display of values need to be switched ON
from the Vector panel.

HyperGraph 10.0 Release Notes
HyperGraph is a high performance, automated, and customizable plotting application for engineering,
science, and test data analyses. It is fully interactive with functionality accessed directly under the
mouse. Its strengths include the ability to plot large numbers of time history curves in a matter of
seconds, automatically organize the curves into separate plot windows across multiple pages, and
logically label each curve and plot window. Once a session is generated, the process can be
automatically repeated for subsequent analyses, saving valuable time.
General
New Features
DirectShow on Windows HyperGraph uses Microsofts media-streaming
architecture DirectShow for high-quality video
playback in the MediaView client.
For many of the popular video formats such as WMV
and MPEG, support is possible on Windows with
DirectShow architecture.
The MediaView client can read video files with new
codecs of XVid and MPEG-4.2 on Windows.
Dynamic curve names Dynamic curve names offer the flexibility of
referencing curves based on the curve data source.
Templex evaluation on the curve names, plot titles,
and axis label provide a convenient way of updating
all the labels relative to the short form expression.
A preference file statement can be set to revert to old
behavior. The statement
*EnableTemplexCurveNames() controls the setting
with a default value of true.
Polar plots Tip to Tail Tip-to-tail is a new functionality for obtaining the
vector representation and combination of the curves
in polar plots.
A new panel in the Polar Plot window allows you to
select curves that are defined for a tip-to-tail
combination. If the resultant curve is available, it can
be verified with the tip-to-tail combination as a vector
from the origin to the last selected curve drawn in the
plot.
Parameter Browser for
automation
A parameter browser is now available (View >
Parameter Browser) to define parameters for report
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 73
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
templates. Report templates allow you to compare
iterations in overlay or append mode. Instead of hard
coding IDs or values in a session such as measure
IDs or note colors, parameters can be defined so that
a new iteration corresponding to a different ID
scheme can be overlaid/appended in exactly the
same layout as the base line results.
Parameters can be defined on any session, and the
value is input by the user when the template is
instantiated from the Reports panel for a new
iteration. The parameters take the default value from
the existing session, which can be changed by the
user before saving a template.
All the parameters defined in a session file are stored
in both the session file and the report template, so
the information is not lost after the session is closed.
Curves and related attributes, legends, plot window
defaults, and datum lines are all supported.
Unregister preferences A preference file is a special script file that is read
each time the program is started. It specifies default
user settings such as the order in which colors are
assigned, the default printer, default page layout, and
the autosave interval. Whenever a preference file is
registered or used, the menu items change to
correspond with the new preferences. All references
to older preference menus are replaced with the new
menu. The Unregister option, allows you to remove
a preference file from the list.
Enhancements
Motion JPEG video Import and export of AVI files with Motion JPEG
codecs are now supported on all platforms.
Capture animations now support Motion JPEG as
one of the options for AVI capture. The quality of the
captured animation can be controlled to obtain
optimum file size.
Reader performances File reading and plotting data performance
improvements have been implemented across all
readers (Time history data of RADIOSS, PAM-
CRASH, LS-DYNA, etc.)
Templex performance Errors with some Templex functions (subrange) and
symbols have been fixed.

74 HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
The degree sign error in Templex expression has
been fixed.
Templex speed has been drastically improved,
including the use of functions that contain looping
operations.
Apply style Apply Style feature support has been extended to
complex plots.
External functions Rainflow functions have been added for durability
analysis to perform the rainflow counting on time
history loading.
HyperGraph 3D preferences Preference statements for HyperGraph 3D are now
supported. These are specified within the
*BeginPlot3DDefaults(), *EndPlot3DDefaults() block
of a preference file.
HyperGraph 3D A finite element model or part of a model can be
used as 2D and 3D symbols for lines and bars within
the HyperGraph 3D window. New preference file
statements, *Add2DSymbolStyle() and
*Add3DSymbolStyle() provide the flexibility of
referencing an FE model as a symbol on lines and
bars.
HyperGraph 3D Asian fonts Asian fonts and characters are supported in the entry
fields and graphics of HyperGraph 3D.
Resolved Issues
MediaView The issue with the Synch table when viewing videos
with different end times has been resolved.
Performing repeated capture animations and loading
the file in MediaView now shows correct animation of
the media files.
When a capture animation is performed with the box
select option, the image size is properly restored.
Text client Line breaks in saving and retrieving a text file is
preserved.
HTML text is rendered correctly on widescreen and
regular monitors.
HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes 75
Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering.
XY plot HyperGraph no longer reads the same data twice in
certain result files.
Many of the inconsistencies in reading ascii files with
the column reader have been addressed.
The handling of inconsistencies in column data files
with inconsistent delimiters, non numeric data
columns, and carriage returns has been improved.
The reading of column files no longer results in
crashes.
The issue related to cross plotting of curves that do
not have the same number of points has been
resolved.
No multiple request labels are shown for the same
data.
Plotting requests with numbers greater than
10,000,000 now works properly.
Reading of requests with Adams XRF files now
works correctly. There are no longer missing curves.
The animation cursor is properly shown on curves
that are derived from time domain curves.
Complex plot Complex data is now plotted in the form that is
available in the data file. Earlier versions of
HyperGraph (9.0 or earlier) always plotted the
complex data in Magnitude/Phase form even if the
data was in Real/Imaginary form. The data format of
the request is now preserved as available in the plot
file.
Command layer API to shade area under the curve
has been fixed.
Polar plot Print preview shows correct view with Polar Plot
windows.
Correct animation is shown even after cutting and
pasting curves in polar plots.
Issues with multiple copy, paste, and overlay of polar
plot windows have been resolved.

Proprietary Information of Altair Engineering
A HyperStudy xml file from older versions is now
read properly.
Known Limitations
Parameter Browser for
automation
The Parameter browser is intended to be operated in
an authoring mode, where the session layout and
format is already established, and parameters are
defined on the existing objects. If any objects are
deleted, the parameters defined on these objects are
not deleted automatically.
Overlaying more than one instance of a report
template results in parameters being inactive.
Session files and report templates save all defined
parameters for restore. However, any multiple
overlay operation disables the state of the
parameters.
All deleted objects, and cut and paste of windows
and pages may not update the parameters correctly.
It is recommended to perform all edit operations on
the session before defining any parameters.
Notes may not be positioned properly with
parameters in a complex plot (Phase/Mag or
Real/Imag).
Report templates do not update the curves properly if
the format of the complex data is Real/Imaginary.

HyperStudy 10.0 Release Notes
Altair HyperStudy is a general tool for DOE (Design of Experiments), optimization, and stochastic
studies in a CAE environment. Its wizard-like design makes it very easy to learn and use for studying
the different aspects of a design under various conditions, including non-linear behaviors. It can be
applied in the multi-disciplinary optimization of a design combining different analysis types.
In addition to the typical definition of solver input data as design variables, the shape of a finite
element model can also be parameterized with ease.
HyperStudy is well integrated with HyperWorks through direct access to the HyperMesh,
Manufacturing Solutions, and MotionView databases. HyperMorph is integrated for shape
parameterization, and the power of Templex is available to set up study problems with complex
mathematics.
HyperStudy 10.0 offers more stability and user-friendliness as well as a few new modules:
HyperStudy Editor allows you to create and edit template files.
Evaluation and Rating module allow you to automatically analyze, compare, and rate.
Post-processing module offers a set of tools and methods to perform advanced analysis of
DOE or stochastic studies results.

optimization algorithms. SORA (Sequential
Optimization and Reliability Assessment) is an
optimization algorithm that allows you to manage
random variables and set reliability targets on the
constraints.
SORA method, which decouples the objective
optimization cycle with the reliability assessment
cycle, is an efficient method for optimization
problems with reliability constraints. An extension to
SORA was also added in HyperStudy to perform
robust optimization.
Adaptive Response Surface Method (ARSM), a
powerful tool to describe the model responses, can
be integrated into SORA to improve efficiency. The
optimization process is carried out on the
approximations of the model responses. The iterative
design points are used to update the approximation
functions to achieve higher precision.
Enhancements

GA optimization GA memory reduction uses a binary code technique
to reduce the memory used for individuals.
Evaluation and rating The Evaluation and Rating module can access all
HyperWorks readers.
SQP optimization The algorithm has been improved to handle contrary
violated constraints.

RADIOSS (Block Format) Solver Interface - HyperWorks
10.0 Release Notes
HyperMesh
Supported Versions RADIOSS Fix, RADIOSS 4.2, 4.4, 5.1, 9.0
New Features
2D/3D project The Component Table has been improved to
create/assign material and properties to the
component on the fly. The property ID in the /PART
card image can no longer be edited in the /PART
card image but can be modified through the
component collectors panel. Property and material
can be assigned to a newly created /PART card from
the component collector panel, model browser, and
solver browser. In HyperMesh parlance, the property
ID in the part card is no longer an entity attribute,
instead it is a HyperMesh core data name.
HyperBeam The cross sectional properties for beam and bar
elements (/PROP/BEAM (TYPE3) and
/PROP/TRUSS (TYPE2)) are mapped to
HyperBeam in HyperMesh for ease of modeling
beam and bar elements, and the 3D visualization of
these elements.
Solver browser New menu functions Show, Hide, Isolate, Review,
and Find attached have been implemented for each
card specific to its feature for easy editing and
scanning of the model.
Find attached is limited to 1D elements in this

*COUPLING/* DISTRIBUTING and *KINEMATIC are
now both imported as groups in all cases. The
issues that occurred when a surface consisting of
elements was referenced have been resolved.
Material reference for
composite section
In earlier releases, material references were done by
a string in SHELL, SHELL GENERAL, and SOLID
SECTION data line. If a material collector name was
edited within HyperMesh, the connectivity between
property and material was broken.

Now, instead of a name string, there is a direct link to
the material collector. If a material is renamed, the
change is reflected in the property card as well.
Assemblies Components no longer end up in the wrong
assemblies.
Contact Manager Analytical rigid surface visualization (geometry) is no
longer deleted after closing the Contact Manager.
Duplicated names Previously, if duplicate names were found on import,
HyperMesh added a dot . and an index to the name.
This caused Abaqus solver to error out. A colon : is
now used instead to eliminate the problem.
HyperView
Enhancements
Multi-ODB reader support A framework to read different versions of ODB result
files has been introduced. Currently, ODB results of
version 6.7, 6.8, and 6.8-EF can be read without an

ANSYS Solver Interface - HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
HyperWorks 10.0 includes a new tool, ANSYS Contact Manager, which provides an option to
automatically create surface-to-surface contacts. Several changes related to the ANSYS deck export
format as well as a few new elements and control cards for setting up ANSYS decks are also
included. New element configurations have been added to the special second order element creation
macro.
Supported Versions
ANSYS 11.0 and earlier versions
HyperMesh
New Features
Block Format support
ANSYS Solver has two types of deck formats: block
format and APDL command format. Block format is
the latest of the two. HyperMesh 9.0 and before
exported the deck in command format. Beginning in
this release, elements and properties can be written in
the ANSYS block format. This format has been
implemented for elements, sets, and properties.
Nodes will continue to be written in command format
until a future release. Major benefits of the block
format are:
Performance: Large decks can now be read in
ANSYS Solver quickly.
Warning messages: Unnecessary warning messages
will be eliminated while reading elements in ANSYS
solver.
ANSYS Contact Manager The ANSYS Contact Manager is available in the
Utility menu under the Ansys user profile.

This tool lists all types of contact definitions present
in the model. Element types, components, materials,
property used, and pilot node name [if used] are
listed for each pair.
New contact types such as point-to-edge and point-
to-surface have been introduced.
You can update contact definitions, properties, and
materials of contacts at any time. Show and reverse
normal is also possible at any time. Contact summary
in script format is available.
Auto Contact Definition A new tool has been added in the Ansys utility menu
that automatically generates ANSYS surface-to-

surface contact elements.

In the ANSYS Contact Manager table, click Auto to
activate the tool. You can then select components,
and define tolerance and break angle to define auto
contacts.
The Auto Contact browser appears in the Utility
menu. You can swap contacts and targets, and add
and delete elements in a contact pair. Once a pair is
accepted, auto generated property and material
cards are attached to the pair and this information is
added in the Contact Manager table.
Other enhancements The Ansys to optistruct and Ansys to Nastran
conversion tool can now convert ANSYS load steps
to OptiStruct/Nastran load steps.
ANSYS shell and solid properties are supported in
HyperMesh core. You can use options such as color
by properties. Note that properties still attach to the
components as in earlier releases.
Formula sets are also supported in the ANSYS
interface. ANSYS solver does not support any
formula for sets. Different formula options can still be
used to create node and element sets. All ANSYS
sets are now imported as formula sets.
HyperBeam now supports ANSYS HAT [with variable
thickness option].
The following new ANSYS elements have been
added in HyperMesh: SOLID168, SHELL208,
SHELL209, and SHELL281.
Fluid and heat flow boundary conditions are now
supported.

CFD Solver Interface - HyperWorks 10.0 Release Notes
HyperMesh
HyperMesh is a high-performance pre-processor to generate quality grids/meshes for Computational
Fluid Dynamics (CFD). HyperMesh I/O capabilities include support of native formats for Acusolve,
CFD++, FLUENT, STAR-CD, and SC/Tetra. For CFX, the native FLUENT format can be used.
HyperMeshs state-of-the-art meshing technology allows you to develop high quality meshes to
guarantee fast convergence rates. Automated mixed-type mesh generation minimizes meshing time.
HyperMesh incorporates a variety of tools for seamless integration into any existing engineering
process, with a streamlined meshing process that leads to shorter turnaround times. HyperMesh
offers a fully automatic 3D CFD meshing approach with boundary layer meshes consisting of
hexahedral and/or wedge elements, arbitrary number of layers, thickness, growth rate, and a
tetrahedral core volume meshing algorithm having several meshing options, including size, growth
rate, and element quality criteria. For external aerodynamic studies the wind tunnel meshing tool can
be used to generate a Cartesian hexa mesh in the far field and a tetra mesh including a boundary
layer near the object. The hex-core meshing tool can be used to generate a hex-dominate mesh for
internal aerodynamic analysis.
HyperMeshs CFD meshing capabilities span a very wide range of target applications including
internal and external flows, conjugate heat transfer, species and chemical reactions, and combustion.
A very large class of CFD applications can benefit from the high quality simulation meshes generated
by Altair HyperMesh.
The morphing technology available in HyperMesh supports both morphing domain and morphing
volumes for shapes generation. HyperMeshs morphing tools facilitate the task of defining geometrical
changes based on an existing mesh. By providing you with a large number of morphing algorithms
well suited for CFD applications, you can easily generate new designs, generally, without remeshing.
Altair HyperStudy is a design study and optimization tool for product design in multi-disciplinary
environments. The HyperMesh CFD user interface enables you to write ready-to-run HyperStudy
template files for FLUENT, STAR-CD, and CFX.
With the combination of HyperStudy, morphing, and a CFD solver of your choice, DOE and
optimization studies can be easily performed even on the most complex CFD models. The
HyperMesh CFD user interface enables you to write HyperStudy template files for FLUENT, STAR-
CD, and CFX. Using HyperStudy, users load a simulation template for either FLUENT, STAR-CD, or
CFX and they can perform DOE and optimization studies following very intuitive process-based steps.
New Features
Automatic meshing of two-
dimensional/plane geometries
with boundary layers
Starting from an arbitrary number of components
defining the perimeter of the plane two-dimensional
geometry to be meshed, you have full control on the
mesh type. For perimeters with boundary layer, you
can specify: initial layer thickness, growth rate, and
number of layers to be generated. High quality
quads are generated on all perimeter sections.
Where a boundary layer type mesh is specified, a
small number of trias may appear in concave areas
with relatively large boundary layer thickness.
Automatic boundary layer collision detection helps

I/O support for 2D fluent
.MSH/.CAS files
Previously, only 3D models were supported. For 2D
models, HyperMesh now supports reusing
FLUENTs .cas simulation settings and associated
boundary conditions. You can load FLUENT .cas
models into HyperMesh, and after making
geometry/mesh changes, you can create new .cas
simulation models reusing simulation settings and
boundary conditions from the original .cas file.
I/O support of native SC-Tetra
PRE Files
Most features of SC-Tetra PRE files are supported
through a native HyperMesh reader and writer on all
platforms. I/O support of SC-Tetra PRE files allows
you to generate high quality meshes with boundary
components needed to easily define boundary
conditions with SC-Tetra.
Automatic wind tunnel model
generation utility
Most aspects of wind tunnel mesh generation for
external aerodynamics have been automated in a
new meshing utility. This utility generates a wind
tunnel far field with hexahedral elements, a
transition layer with pyramid elements, and all the
necessary surface mesh components needed to
generate the near field mesh around the vehicle with
HyperMeshs CFD mesh sub-panel.
Consistency checks for model
domain meshes and associated
boundary conditions
components
A number of consistency checks are now done while
exporting meshes for most CFD solvers; the
objective is to indentify mesh inconsistencies and/or
volume/surface mesh inconsistencies as soon as
possible in the model preparation process. Such
checks warn users about potential errors that a
mesh might have, thus allowing you to take
corrective actions before importing the mesh into the
target CFD solver.
Shape optimization with CFX11 The CFD user interface now supports the generation
of template files for shape optimization with
HyperStudy and CFX version 11 or later. A
streamlined user interface allows exporting design
shapes directly as HyperStudy template files for

CFX11. This streamlined link between HyperMesh,
HyperStudy, and CFX11 allows you to perform of all
types of DOE and Optimization studies.
Note: Streamlines post-processing capabilities are
available in HyperView 10.0. It imports typical CFD
results through Ensight file sets generated by most
commercial CFD solvers.
Enhancements
Reduction of required memory There is a significant reduction in the amount of
memory required to both import and export FLUENT
.MSH/.CAS files. The amount of RAM required to
import and export FLUENT files has been reduced
to approximately 1/3 of the amount required in
HyperMesh 9.0. This translates into a significant
performance improvement for large models.
Automatic boundary layer
thickness reduction capabilities
Performance and quality enhancements have been
implemented in the automatic boundary layer
thickness reduction capabilities for cases with very
thick boundary layers and a high number of surface
elements.
Exporting CFD file formats A significant reduction in the time required to export
most CFD file formats has been made possible by a
new out of core renumbering algorithm.
HyperView
New Features
Ensight reader It is now possible to import Ensight gold and Ensight
6 format, both binary and ASCII, into HyperView for
post-processing
CFD streamlines The streamline panel allows you to generate
streamlines using the velocity field of CFD results.
The starting point for the streamlines can be defined
via a user-defined number of nodes on a line or on a
surface. The integration can be preformed upstream,
downstream, or both ways.
