Pre and Post-Processing with Altair Simulation

This section details the integration of AcuSolve with the industrially accepted pre and post-processing tools of Altair Simulation.

AcuSolve is smoothly integrated with pre and post-processing Altair Simulation products.

For example, traditional users of HyperMesh can prepare the model in HyperMesh and then can either export the input files for AcuSolve or launch the AcuSolve solver directly by clicking File > Export > Model.

After the solution is obtained from AcuSolve, Altair Simulation can be used for various post-processing applications. Although AcuSolve provides AcuProbe and AcuFieldView for post-processing, traditional users of Altair Simulation can make use of Altair Simulation post-processing tools. For example, AcuSolve .log files can be directly read from HyperView by clicking File > Load > Results and then choosing the appropriate AcuSolve .log file.

HyperStudy is also integrated for AcuSolve. While performing a parametric study of the CFD simulation, HyperStudy can be used to its fullest advantage. HyperGraph can also be used with AcuSolve to visualize the graphical interpretation of the results. To do this you must convert the AcuSolve results into a tabular format using AcuTrans. In the AcuSolve command prompt use the command acuTrans –out .
