Multiphysics Simulation Software Added to the Altair Partner Alliance

CosiMate by Chiastek is now available for use by HyperWorks® customers TROY, Mich. – October 4, 2017 – The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) is pleased to announce the addition of Chiastek’s CosiMate to its software offering. CosiMate supports model-based system engineering, enables simulation based design and allows virtual product development. It is a platform for multiphysics co-simulation with an open architecture approach for inter-connectivity to any simulator. With its flexibility, ease of use, and low cost of ownership, CosiMate is the preferred solution for any size and any scale system-simulation requirement.

“We are happy to welcome Chiastek into the Altair Partner Alliance,” said Sridhar Ravikoti, HyperWorks Marketing Director at Altair. “Our customers are increasingly applying Model Based Systems Engineering approaches to designing complex systems and are already utilizing an impressive portfolio of multi-physics solvers and systems modeling tools under the HyperWorks suite. CosiMate as a co-simulation platform provides an additional gateway to connect these tools with its native couplings to any existing heterogeneous simulators and programs.”

CosiMate is a platform for engineers performing the modeling and simulation of an overall system made of hydraulics, mechanicals, electronics, or other components. CosiMate is mainly used in the automotive and aerospace industries. These industries are coping with increasing system complexities, which can cause failures during design phases and diversification of system component supplies. System simulation is a suitable method to address new development challenges and lead to a shorter time to market. Without changing the simulation familiarity and learning a new tool, CosiMate´s bus-architecture enriches simulation environments through native coupling to any other tool in use by colleagues, partners and suppliers. Engineers of different disciplines are enabled to collaborate and multi-physics co-simulation enriches engineering work.

“We at Chiastek are very pleased to now be a part of the Altair Partner Alliance,” said John Carapella, VP Sales North America at Chiastek. “This complimentary relationship provides a positive cooperative mechanism for colleagues to access and experience our platform, CosiMate.”

CosiMate supports product development by solving coupling and other co-simulation issues during the design-, test- and analysis-process. Enhanced teamwork between mechanical, electrical and multiphysics engineering and early identification of system errors or risky designs are main topics of support.

An introductory webinar for Chiastek will be held on October 13 at 10 a.m. ET. For more information about the software, please visit the product page for CosiMate.
