Materials information for HyperMesh

Direct access to validated CAE materials models from within HyperMesh

Deploy accurate, up-to-date, approved materials information to simulation engineers throughout the company, for use within their HyperMesh workflows

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for HyperMesh

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for HyperMesh enables users of the HyperMesh CAE pre-processor from Altair's HyperWorks suite to directly access and use validated CAE materials models from a GRANTA MI database, while working in their familiar CAE environment.

The GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway tool launches directly from your HyperMesh window, connecting to corporate materials data managed in GRANTA MI or to Granta's comprehensive catalog of valuable materials reference information.

Through the MI:Materials Gateway window within HyperMesh you can search and browse the available materials, view their datasheets, choose applicable CAE materials models, and then import these models directly to your CAE environment, complete with full traceability information. Switch solver profiles in HyperMesh, and the MI:Materials Gateway does likewise—presenting CAE material models relevant to the current solver profile. All of these tasks can be performed quickly, interactively, and with no risk of error due to data transfer.
