Math, Scripting, Data Analysis and Visualization Software


What is Compose?

Analyzing data, developing algorithms, or creating models - Compose is designed to bring your ideas forward.

Altair Compose is an environment for doing math calculations, manipulating, and visualizing data, programming, and debugging scripts useful for repeated computations and process automation. Compose allows users to perform a wide variety of math operations including linear algebra and matrix manipulations, statistics, differential equations, signal processing, control systems, polynomial fitting, and optimization.

The broad set of native CAE and test result readers accelerates system understanding and works with Altair Activate® to support model-based development, for multi-domain and system of systems simulations. Altair Embed® completes the model-based design portfolio with automated code generation, allowing for the testing and verification of embedded systems.

Why Compose?

Better Engineering Decisions

Perform useful engineering calculations based on first principles, either one-time or repeatedly (when archivable as reusable scripts), and with pre-or-postprocess data. Then easily plot results and make informed decisions.

Affordably All-in-One

All capabilities are available in a single, multi-functional tool with a user-friendly integrated development environment (IDE), with no additional toolboxes required.

Easily Accessible

Can be used on its own or with other Altair products, which are accessible through Altair’s innovative unit-based licensing system.

Key Features

Includes hundreds of powerful math operations and built-in functions for calculations ranging from ultra simple to super complex.

Users can explore multiple approaches and find solutions faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages such as C/C++.

Based on the Open Matrix Language (OML) and is also compatible with Octave and Python.

Especially handy when doing often-repeated calculations or streamlining common processes. Also includes a useful debugging ability.

Useful 2D and 3D plots provide richer insight from your calculations and data.

Quickly and easily import, visualize, and manipulate input and output data for CAE tools such as FEA, CFD, and more.
