Exporting the Platform Mesh in HyperWorks

The mesh of the platform is exported to a Feko HyperMesh (.fhm) file which contains the mesh elements, material properties, and assignment data.

  1. Open Altair HyperWorks.
  2. Open a HyperMesh model (.hm) file to be exported as the platform model.

    Figure 1. An example of a HyperMesh model. The vehicle is meshed and the material is defined as Aluminum and applied as a property to the mesh elements.
  3. To export the mesh, click File > Export > Solver Deck to export the mesh.
    1. Specify a file name and save as type Feko (*.fhm).
    Tip: Keep HyperWorks open since the antenna and platform will be remeshed.
