State of the Art Process Integration Simplifies Multidisciplinary Modeling of an Electric Motor for an Automobile

ModelCenter’s powerful integration capabilities simplify building automated multidisciplinary workflows. This enables the Altair Hyperworks software suite to be integrated in highly complex applications. In this example ModelCenter was used to solve an industrial multidisciplinary design problem, the design of an electric motor for an automobile. Electromagnetic, thermal, and structural performance criteria are simultaneously considered to design an efficient motor. The individual disciplines are evaluated using Altair solvers – Flux Motor, Flux, and OptiStruct. ModelCenter provides an easy way to connect the different analysis tools into a sophisticated workflow. The workflow is executed by HyperStudy to search through the design space and find the best answer.

Altair's New, Modern Fatigue Solution: HyperLife

Before a product ever goes to market, companies must understand how their products will behave during and beyond their expected use cycle. Building a brand perception of product quality relies on consistently durable products, regardless of when and where they are produced, time after time. Additionally, high development costs and expensive warranty claims can be mitigated by integrating fatigue simulation into the product development process. There are many tools on the market to simulate the durability and fatigue life of products, but what sets some solutions apart? Learn how HyperLife enables you to differentiate your products through quality and beat competitors to market with quicker engineering decisions.

Predicting and Eliminating Squeak & Rattle Noise in Vehicle Interiors with PSA Peugeot Citroën

During the development of new vehicles, PSA Peugeot Citroën Group (PSA) wanted to take the lead in using simulation technology to detect squeak and rattle noise problems, before physical testing was possible. The initiative led to a collaboration between PSA’s Method Development Engineering team and Altair ProductDesign to explore the use of simulation technologies and numerical optimization methods at an early stage of development. This 60-minute Webinar, jointly presented by PSA and Altair, discusses the project and its progress, describing the results achieved through the application of an “E-Line method” approach and detailing how the newly established processes have been integrated into PSA’s existing Virtual Development Process (VDP).

Meaningful Results Earlier in the Design Process with SimSolid

Especially in the early design stages of product development, variants change quicker than conventional FEA tools and processes can keep up with. This is even more apparent when full assemblies or complex structures have to be evaluated. Simulation can be a powerful tool to help inform product development decisions, but you need fast, accurate results in order to react at the speed of design.

Design for Extrusion

Driving designs that are cognizant of the downstream manufacturing processes Increasing manufacturing costs and stiff competition coupled with low profit margins are posing tremendous challenges to extrusion companies, especially automotive and aerospace industries. One way the leading companies stay ahead of the competition is by reducing the product development time and production costs through virtual testing. Design engineers and analysts use CAE software to analyze and validate die designs and thereby reduce/eliminate costly die trials. This webinar explains how extrusion simulation framework provides an easy to use CAE environment to: - Validate extrusion die designs - Optimize process conditions - Identify potential defects and correct them before becoming critical problems

E-Motor Weight and Cost Reduction Webinar

Nowadays, it is more and more challenging to design an e-motor. Many constraints have to be fulfilled, including maximizing power using minimal size, considering thermal constraints, material and production costs, and of course reducing weight. In order to meet these constraints, a multifaceted solution is needed, leveraging physics tools in combination with optimization methods. This webinar will introduce Altair's e-motor design and optimization solutions in a step by step process. We will discuss pre-design, magnetic computation and thermal analysis and show how optimization methods can help to optimize weight and cost at each step of the process (especially the weight of magnets) . We’ll demonstrate how Design Of Experiments (DOEs) allows designers to run different types of optimization very quickly, which enables informed decisions at different stage of the design cycle.

OptiStruct - Equivalent Plastic Strain Response for Optimization

Equivalent plastic strain can be used as an internal response when a nonlinear response optimization is run using the equivalent static load method. This is made possible through the use of an approximated correlation between linear strain and plastic strain, which are calculated in the inner and outer loops respectively, of the ESL method.
