This was completed in the Altair HyperWorks environment as Altair HyperMesh combined with Altair OptiStruct enables the creation of a parametric model with a multitude of design variables (i.e. size, shape, displacement, stress and frequency) in order to satisfy NVH, manufacturability, durability and crash targets.

Applications of Advanced Composite Simulation and Design Optimization

Usage of fiber reinforced composite material entered an new era when leading aircraft OEMs took an unprecedented step to design and manufacture essentially full composite airframe for commercial airliners. Composite structures offer unmatched design potential as the laminate material properties can be tailored almost continuously throughout the structure. However, this increased design freedom also brings new challenges for the design process and software. Moreover, as a relatively new material, composite behaviors are more complex and less fully understood by design engineers. Therefore, reliable simulation for highly complex events like bird strike and ditching can play an important role in shortening the product design cycle. This paper showcases two area of CAE tools for composite applications. On advanced simulation, bird strike simulation with Altair RADIOSS [1] is demonstrated on an aircraft underbelly fairing. On design optimization, an airplane wing structure is designed using an innovative composite optimization process implemented in Altair OptiStruct [1-3]. OptiStruct has seen increasing adoption among aerospace OEMs, as demonstrated in the Bombardier application process described in this paper.

Aircraft Carrier Alliance

<b>Creating a Structurally Efficient Design for the Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carrier</b><br><br>When making key decisions at the concept and preliminary design phases of a naval ship project, the designer is often obliged to work with limited data on the major structural design drivers for the vessel. This can lead to a largely subjective design approach which can result in inefficiency and even structural problems being locked-in from the start. To solve any issues, increased material use, weight and unnecessary complexity, as well as high design and manufacture costs can be introduced to the end product. To evaluate the potential of simulation-driven design under the unique requirements of naval ship design, the ACA partnered with Altair ProductDesign.
