When extreme lightweight requirements meet ultimate performance needs, continuous fiber reinforced materials are the solution of choice. Optimized weight-performance ratios are just as important in the aerospace industry as in transportation, sports, racing, and many other applications. Innovative composite designs using carbon fibers and other reinforcement materials meet performance, weight, and quality requirements while considering economic manufacturing. The holistic simulation of continuous fiber composites is an important building block to tailor products to individual requirements. Altair composite solutions make this happen quickly and reliably.
Composite material behavior is defined as components are manufactured. Analyze composite structures at the required level of detail with Altair solutions. Develop and simulate multiscale heterogeneous material models with Altair® Multiscale Designer®.
Assure manufacturability with draping and forming simulation for sandwich and multilayered laminates.
Tailor composite properties throughout a structure to optimize performance potential.
