Ford Motor Company Continues to Engineer Safer Vehicles Using the HyperWorks Simulation Suite and Its Integrated Solver Solution - RADIOSS

Global automotive manufacturer leverages the HyperWorks' solver solution, RADIOSS, and achieves outstanding occupant safety performance

LEAMINGTON SPA, England, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading provider of technology and services that empowers client innovation and decision-making, announced today, that global automotive organisation, Ford Motor Company, has continued to improve vehicle safety performance through the use of the HyperWorks simulation suite and the power of its solver solution, RADIOSS. Combining Ford's engineering experience with the capabilities of HyperWorks has resulted in their new Fiesta range becoming a class leader for both occupant and pedestrian safety.

As an experienced user of the HyperWorks suite, Ford have always found the RADIOSS solver to be extremely robust and reliable, especially the explicit crash simulation involved in vehicle safety assessment. RADIOSS is used extensively throughout Ford's vehicle development process and was the obvious solver of choice when developing the new Fiesta model, which launched in Europe during 2008. The highly scalable and repeatable nature of the solver, combined with Ford UK's state of the art engineering methods and development processes, successfully achieved an outstanding five star crash performance when rated by EuroNCAP.

"I am pleased to see Ford Motor Company taking advantage of HyperWorks' solver solutions. By making RADIOSS an integral part of their engineering design process has helped to ensure that all Ford vehicles are extremely safe for both vehicle occupants and pedestrians," said Maurice Linscott, regional director, Altair UK. "The solver's repeatability, scalability, accuracy and robustness make it the analysis tool of choice for many of the worlds leading OEMs and suppliers across a wide spectrum of domains and industries. We are seeing increasing numbers of companies adopting HyperWorks technology due to its analysis power, ease of use and our cost effective licensing system."
