Scania Next Generation Session Browser (NGSB)

CAE software customization, in particular customization of the HyperWorks suite, is one of Optiphore’s main competences. When it comes to pre-processing customization, by setting up efficient workflows and the corresponding user interfaces we ensure our customers can reduce lead-time while preparing and checking their models before running any analysis.

In this project Optiphore subcontracted for Altair Sweden to deliver a solution to Scania CV AB, in Sweden.

NGSB is a solution covering model preparation tasks, starting with importing geometries of parts, moving on to meshing and connecting parts in an assembly, ensuring proper materials/properties assignment and incorporating customer specific conventions into the pre-processing workflow. The end result is the exporting of ready to run solver decks. All the aforementioned tasks are automated, hence minimizing user required inputs. Significant lead-time reduction is achieved by the use of NGSB. The implementation is performed in the HyperMesh environment (pre-processor) using Tcl/Tk programming language.
