ESAComp interfaces with Altair’s HyperWorks software for pre and post-processing.

Software developer Altair has acquired Componeering Inc, a Finland-based company which specializes in structural analysis and design of composite structures.

Componeering, now Altair Engineering Finland Oy, is the developer of ESAComp composites simulation software which is used in aerospace and in other composite industries such as marine, automotive, rail transportation, alternative energy and machinery. ESAComp software is suitable for design and analysis of composites, from conceptual and preliminary design of layered composite structures to advanced analyses for final design verification. It also includes analysis tools for structural elements including flat and curved panels, stiffened panels, beams and columns, and bonded and mechanical joints.

‘The acquisition of Componeering […] complements Altair’s finite element offering perfectly on both the pre- and post-processing side,’ said Markku Palanterä, former CEO of Componeering and now director, ESAComp at Altair.
