The Deep Orange Program has partnered with Altair to apply advanced computational simulation methods to their vehicle designs. Altair-sponsored internships and fellowships have enhanced student learning through
providing webinar-based and on-sight instruction of Altair HyperWorks simulation technologies. An example of these simulation-based design applications is the CUICAR Deep Orange 3 Program,the third generation vehicle prototype designed and engineered by the Clemson engineering graduate students. Deep Orange 3 features a load-bearing structure based
on innovative sheet-folding technology and a unique 3+3 seating configuration package in a sports car architecture. The following describes this design and summarizes the application of Altair HyperWorks to meet the
necessary engineering structural performance requirements for the underlying body structure.
