Targeting Composite Wing Performance – Optimum Location of Laminate Boundaries

This paper investigates the application of newly available optimization functionality available in OptiStruct to provide design guidance to generate innovative laminate composite solutions. Due to the flexibility of laminate composites, it has great potential to exhibit displacement characteristics that could significantly increase the aerodynamic performance.

MBD Series: Lightweight Design

Tony Norton - Executive Vice President Product Design at Altair Engineering - talks about MBD being an essential tool in finding accurate loads for a subsequent optimization. He also introduces Inspire Motion and explains the Sub-Space Response Surface MDO Solution developed by his Product Development team.

Benefits of the Symbiosis of Topology Optimization and Additive Manufacturing in Architecture

The challenge was to investigate the potential offered by the symbiosis of topology optimization and additive manufacturing for architectural projects. The Altair solution included the use of the HyperWorks suite, especially OptiStruct for optimization tasks. The benefits were reduced construction time and costs due to decreased material usage while receiving better and more esthetic results.

HyperWorks for Crash: Simulation with RADIOSS

Erwan Mestres (Business Development Director) is presenting a comprehensive overview of Altair's crash solution RADIOSS, touching on basics, model setup, safety models (such as dummies and barriers), and also analysis speed-up with e.g. scaling or sub-modelling.
