PM-FlexTire™ by Pratt Miller Deformable Tire Model

PM-FlexTire deformable tire model for use with EDEM soil models and ADAMS or Motion Solve. PM-FlexTire is an finite element-based tire model that is integrated with the Altair® EDEM™ soft-soil simulation platform and significantly expands what is possible in virtual development of soft-soil mobility. The model provides realistic deformation and high fidelity forces and moments through co-simulation between EDEM and multi-body dynamics (MBD) codes. Included time-varying air pressure model and detailed tread pattern interaction with particles are features unique to PM-FlexTire. Users can create models from tire CAD using various meshing solutions including Altair® HyperMesh® and Gmsh integrations, or use meshes generated from other third party meshing tools. Comprehensive integration with discrete element method (DEM) simulation provides a high level of utility relative to alternatives to support increased scope of virtual development. Simulation complexity and licensing cost of PM-FlexTire and the corresponding integrations are "best fit" for virtual mobility development in soft-soil DEM simulation environments.

Achieving better Vehicle NVH performance using MSA and RBDO methods

In the context of NVH vehicle development, a common source of costly design change is where issues are discovered late in a program during vehicle testing or even post launch. Often this occurs where the simulation has met the targets including vehicle level analysis. By considering a population of results rather than the nominal CAE result, a process is demonstrated to develop a more reliable design that will deliver high levels of customer satisfaction and lower levels of late change and warranty costs. In this presentation we will introduce how this can be achieved through the use of MSA and RBDO methods within the framework of Altair’s NVH Director environment. Presenter: Peter Benzie - Senior Technical Specialist NVH, Altair

Delivering Off-Road Mobility for the U.S. Soldier

In this presentation, Dr. David J. Gorsich - Chief Scientist, U.S. Army Ground Vehicle Systems, describes the GVSC’s current programs to deliver an operational model and insights into future terrain mobility models. The ability of a ground force to maneuver has always been critical to determining success or defeat on the battlefield. On the future battlefield, mobility will remain essential with predictive intelligence central to mission completion. At present, mobility models are not terribly precise, as mobility depends on a large number of interdependent variables, like soil characteristics, moisture, temperature, vehicle characteristics, and with large amounts of uncertainty. The convergence of better ways to measure the key parameters either directly or remotely coupled with the increase in computational power and advanced vehicle design is bringing the promise of more accurate terrain and mobility models. Imagine a battlespace where we could accurately advise our forces where it is possible and not possible to maneuver, while the adversary does not have such an advantage.

Virtual Product Development via Physics-Based Simulation

As manufacturers face demands for faster time-to-market, higher quality, and cost-effective design, they started adopting Virtual Product Development (VPD) using physics-based simulation tools and avoid the build–test–redesign–retest cycle. The benefits of VPD are palpable, with reduced development costs, significantly fewer physical prototypes, and drastically shortened development schedules. Highly powerful CAE (FEA, CFD, MBD, Durability, Acoustics, etc.), CAD, CAM and Optimization Software make realization of VPD possible. However, to develop an effective VPD, the physics-based simulation model needs to be statistically validated (V&V) so they can represent the physical system well.

Quick Failure Analysis and Improved Solution of Bolted Joint by Cetim-Cobra

This webinar features Cobra by Cetim, available through the Altair Partner Alliance. On a heavy compressor, changing a damaged part is not always possible due to time and cost constraints. When the first threads of a tapped part (M48) have been stripped during a maintenance mistake, a quick repair had to be defined, with minimum part modifications. The new design had to prove equivalent in strength, fatigue, and pressure on sealing rings at service temperature compared to the original design. The robustness of the solution is also analyzed, comparing results for different tolerances. FEM analysis would prove too long. Cobra allowed to design and verify a solution in a very short time, based on a threaded insert and thanks to its fast calculations.

Build a Complete Analytics Pipeline to Optimize Smart Factory Operations

IoT-enabled infrastructure in factories produce mountains of data that managers can use to optimize plant operations. IoT technology and the sensors that generate most of this data are key building blocks for executing on the industry 4.0 vision of a smart factory. The proper analysis and visualization of this data, coupled with machine learning deployed in the cloud or at the edge, can help companies achieve higher degrees of productivity, flexibility, and innovation and compete more effectively. The need to stitch together the tools required to support the entire workflow — from data prep to machine learning and MLOps (machine learning model operationalization management) — requires broad specialized knowledge and expertise, as well as significant upfront investment. Coupled with the need for data to pass between systems and tools, these factors introduce substantial amounts of risk into the implementation process. We built Altair® SmartWorks™ Analytics specifically to address these challenges and enable data-driven decision making and AI-augmented automation. In this video, we demonstrate how to build an analytics pipeline, including deployment of MLOps models, in a smart factory environment.
