Video: What is simulation driven design?
Instead of taking a product that's already been designed and just try to shave off material, we take a different approach which we call 'simulation driven design' where CAD and CAE are deployed in parallel.
Using our optimization technologies our clients can define a design space, an area where the component must fit in the structure, including data of any holes or access points required. Loads are applied to the design space along with manufacturing constraints and other variables, allowing our technology to suggests the best possible material layout which meets the predetermined performance targets.
Over the last decade, Altair has pioneered Simulation Driven Design to generate innovative design solutions for our clients. It has resulted in products that exhibit minimum weight and outstanding performance in industry leading timescales.
