To meet the global demand for more sustainable, more sophisticated structures – be they super-tall buildings, protective designs, industrial structures, factories, warehousing, transport infrastructure, communication towers or free-form façade systems – the construction industry is in a transformative period.
When designing and building the world’s most innovative structures, teams can solve these challenges and more with Altair’s world-class design solutions. By modeling and predicting complex structural behavior, wind-induced actions, seismic responses, and other performance factors, Altair’s solutions optimize your structure’s performance, mitigate design risks, and ensure you meet code, safety, deadline, and cost specifications.
FEA from CAD Without Meshing
To help you deliver groundbreaking products on time, Altair offers unique, proven technology breakthroughs to analyze fully-featured CAD assemblies in minutes, eliminating geometry simplification and meshing. With it, you can explore multiple design options – even for your project’s most complex parts and largest assemblies – at lightning speeds.
Integrated Structural Engineering
Altair’s structural engineering solutions ensures your workflow productivity and data integrity with comprehensive data transfer links that manage data during consecutive import/export cycles with building information modeling (BIM) and CAD platforms. In addition, a streamlined workflow performs advanced structural analysis and code performance assessments for different building materials and local design codes.
Unleashing the Power of Digital Wind
When constructing the world’s largest buildings, it’s imperative to consider the impact of wind pressures on the structure and on pedestrian comfort. Virtual wind tunnel testing is a mature technology that accurately models wind pressures, delivers rapid results, and lets designers explore and evolve concepts based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) insights.
