Altair HyperView™ – Design Sensitivity Analysis Utility
Design Sensitivity Analysis Utility
• Design sensitivity represents a change in response with respect to a change in a design variable, which is typically used for optimization.
• Design sensitivity can also be used as a diagnostic tool to understand what components in the system (through associated properties referenced by design variables) have controlling influence on the response in question.
• Traditionally, design sensitivity can be cumbersome to request for frequency response analysis. It can only be requested as a part of an optimization run, where multiple design responses have to be created for each frequency response at each analysis frequency; objective function and constraints have to be defined and set in specific ways to force sensitivity output at all analysis frequencies for all design variables.
• In HyperGraph 2D, the Design Sensitivity Analysis utility allows you to plot and rank design sensitivity curves from an OptiStruct dsa.0.h3d file.
Tips & Tricks
Altair HyperView™ – OrderCut Analysis Utility
OrderCut Analysis Utility
• OrderCut Analysis utility generates and post-processes engine order related data from an OptiStruct or Nastran frequency response analysis that contains either RPM-based loading subcases or order-based loading subcases.
• Background, engine related noise, and vibration problems are typically linked to engine orders that are harmonic multiples of the engine’s fundamental firing frequency.
• Understanding the order content of the problem signal is a way to identify the physical phenomenon that is causing the problem.
• To solve the problem, you can adjust the design parameters to modify the engine operation, which in turn reduces the problem orders.
Tips & Tricks
Altair HyperView™ – Multiple Sample Analysis Utility

How CEVT Improves Vehicle Architecture and Eliminates BSR Through Simulation - Part 1
ESL Development Based on Simulation - Application example
The body stiffness has a major impact on the Squeak & Rattle performance of a car. Since the body structure of electrical/autonomous cars will differ clearly from traditional bodies, an enhanced requirement is needed to limit the distortion in the closure openings.
This webinar presents a new approach of defining a requirement based on closure deformations using an equivalent static load (ESL), which considers both the reduction from a complete vehicle to a BIG and from a dynamic load to a static load. In addition, an example is shown how ESL can be used as input for body optimization.
