Altair Engineering's Acquisition ACUSIM Software Selected Editor’s Pick of the Week by Desktop Engineering


Acquisition strengthens Altair's position in CFD and multiphysics says Editor at Large.

DUBLIN, NEW HAMPSHIRE, USA — Desktop Engineering (deskeng.com) announces that Altair Engineering's (Troy, MI) acquisition of ACUSIM Software, Inc. (Mountain View, CA) has been selected its Editor’s Pick of the Week for February 16, 2011.

“Altair has quietly built itself up into a powerhouse engineering software, services, and technology development company,” says Anthony J. Lockwood, editor at large for Desktop Engineering. “What Altair really did not offer was CFD technology that competed toe-to-toe with that offered by other top-level developers. With ACUSIM in its quiver, Altair can scratch that off the to-do list.”

“ACUSIM's CFD (computational fluid dynamics) technologies are highly-regarded in the field,” adds Lockwood. Altair's “HyperWorks is a comprehensive, open-architecture CAE platform that works with most major CAD, CAE, and PLM systems. In many circles, its modeling, analysis, visualization, and data management solutions are always listed among the elite solutions.”

“ACUSIM bring[s] to Altair .. multiphysics capabilities,” concludes Lockwood.
