Altair (Troy, MI, US) will emphasize its tools and expertise for analyzing and optimizing composite structures. Several application case studies will be highlighted including carbon fiber bicycles, America’s Cup racing yachts, automotive composites, prosthetic devices, and aerospace composites. Altair also will present a paper authored by Jeffrey Wollschlager on the application of Altair’s design optimization technology in OptiStruct to create a super lightweight but strong composite beam. In addition, Altair will introduce its newly acquired technology from MultiScale Design Systems (MDS), which includes solutions for micromechanics, microstructural optimization and life prediction of complex materials. The company’s technology integrates modeling, simulation, testing, uncertainty quantification and optimization of composite materials and structures at multiple spatial and temporal scales. Altair also will highlight its set of Altair Partner Alliance (APA) solutions for composite analysis and design. These tools are offered by third parties and accessible under the Altair HyperWorks licensing system. Composite design products available in the APA offering include solutions for structural analysis, micromechanics modeling, failure modeling, complex stress analysis, material databases, injection molding analysis and mapping of material data from injection molding simulation of fiber-reinforced plastics.
