Altair is expanding its Hyperworks computer-aided engineering software to include the use of Mechanical Simulation vehicle dynamics simulation tools.

Altair, a US-based business software group, said in a press release that Mechanical Simulation's CarSim, TruckSim and BikeSim products will be available to its users through the HyperWorks Partner Alliance. HWPA provides a comprehensive package of CAE software applications.

"The addition of Mechanical Simulation’s industry leading vehicle dynamics software satisfies a great demand among our vehicle manufacturing customers,” said Antoine Poussier, vice president of global partner programs at Altair.
