Project Hydra for Autodesk Simulation Multiphysics/Mechanical 2013

Project Hydra is a free technology preview that is compatible with Autodesk Simulation Multiphysics 2013 and Autodesk Simulation Mechanical 2013 software.

The features of the Project Hydra technology preview include:
  • Improvements to the Parametric Design Studies (PDS) feature
    Some improvements to the previously released (in Technology Preview Project Scout) PDS include the ability to export results as a CSV file and the support for CAD additions such as bolts/joints as well as remote loads and boundary conditions.

  • Import temperatures from Autodesk CFD
    Temperatures from Autodesk CFD can be imported to linear, thermal, and MES analyses. Both steady-state and transient Autodesk CFD results can be imported as appropriate. To use this feature go to the respective Thermal tab in the Setup->Parameters dialog and choose "Simulation CFD file" as the "Source of Temperature."

  • New fast Subspace with AMG solution of dynamics analyses
    For larger dynamics (modal, natural frequency) analyses with relatively small numbers of needed frequencies, a faster solution option is available: Subspace-AMG. The dynamics analysis solver will automatically switch between this new solver and the pre-existing one depending on the size of the model and the number of frequencies requested.

  • Inquire results by part
    A new capability that allows the user to inquire the displayed result of any analysis on a per part basis has been added.

  • Improvements to the Drop Test Wizard (DTW) feature
    The DTW from Project Scout has also been improved in Project Hydra.

  • Rerelease of the GPU-enabled AMG Solver (AMG-MF)
    The Project Scout AMG Solver (AMG-MF) is being rereleased in this Tech Preview. This solver is faster than the original AMG solver for a class of well-conditioned and bulky models. Additionally, this solver can utilize a supported NVIDIA video card if requested.

The technology preview will operate until April 1, 2013.
