Optimizing a Solar Car for Endurance and Energy Efficiency
Using Altair simulation software, Gurit supports Western Sydney University's Bridgestone World Solar Challenge team, helping them design the most efficient and aerodynamic
car possible, while ensuring driver safety
and adhering to class rules.

Drivers...Start Your Simulation? University of Texas – Arlington uses Altair SimLab™ and Altair Optistruct™ to design an adjustable pedal box for their Formula SAE racecar
Formula SAE is a collegiate design series run by Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), which challenges students to design, build and compete with an open wheel style car across various events. The competition pitches various teams across different static events focusing on the teams engineering design decisions, cost planning, marketing strategies and vehicle inspections. The teams also have to compete under various dynamic events like acceleration, skid-pad, autocross and the endurance run where even the fuel economy is checked.

Philomec
Canadian start-up company Philomec specializes in mechanical engineering services that helps companies design and optimize their products using mechanical and biomechanical FEM simulation. Their creation of customized, validated biomechanical models, and the analysis of simulation results by experts allows surgeons to choose the model of an implant and adapt surgical maneuvers to a specific patient, thus reducing the number of implants used, as well as the risk of complications. It is challenging to validate biomechanical models due to the complexity of materials, scarcity of experimental data, and the lack of representation of variability. The application of Altair HyperWorks for explicit multiphysics simulation provides a high-level of confidence in the validity and stability of the musculoskeletal models.

Guerrilla Gravity
For pioneering a new material application and technology without a road map, Guerrilla Gravity used Altair OptiStruct in the early design design phase. The result was the development of lightweight, high-performance bikes, that are 300% more impact resistant than other frames on the market that use traditional carbon fiber materials, at significant cost savings and shortened timelines.

E-motor Design using Multiphysics Optimization
Today, an e-motor cannot be developed just by looking at the motor as an isolated unit; tight requirements concerning the integration into both the complete electric or hybrid drivetrain system and perceived quality must be met. Multi-disciplinary and multiphysics optimization methodologies make it possible to design an e-motor for multiple, completely different design requirements simultaneously, thus avoiding a serial development strategy, where a larger number of design iterations are necessary to fulfill all requirements and unfavorable design compromises need to be accepted.



The project described in this paper is focused on multiphysics design of an e-motor for Porsche AG. Altair’s simulation-driven approach supports the development of e-motors using a series of optimization intensive phases building on each other. This technical paper offers insights on how the advanced drivetrain development team at Porsche AG, together with Altair, has approached the challenge of improving the total design balance in e-motor development.


MDGo
Statistics on fatal vehicle accidents show that victims most often do not die during or right after a crash, but in the hours and days afterwards, with research indicating that up to 44 percent of people who died in car crashes could possibly have been saved if first responders and hospitals had
real-time, detailed information about the victim’s injuries. In an effort to transform data received from the car sensors into meaningful information about the victim's injuries, the MDGo team began applying crash simulation using Altair Radioss™. The Altair Startup program was a major help to the Israeli startup company in creating a system which automatically alerts first responders and hospitals of accidents, and reports on potential injuries.

Addressing Design Development Challenges Through Simulation Driven Platform
Automotive suppliers are facing many challenges in having in-house simulation capabilities compared to that of OEM’s. One of the ways to overcome these challenges is to invest in simulation technologies that require an affordable initial investment, the ownership cost of which is low, the codes are reliable & proven, and the suite of tools provide suppliers access to a broad range of solvers (a true multi-physics environment) helping them pick and choose the solvers as per their simulation requirements. In the early stage of in-house simulation implementation at Endurance Technologies, HyperWorks was being adopted primarily for pre and post processing due to its extraordinary FE modeling solutions. With constant support, Altair team has helped Endurance in exploring and implementing various HyperWorks solvers at Endurance Technologies.

Kapmann: Améliorer la température intérieure grâce à la simulation et l'optimisation
"Nous pouvons dire sans aucun doute que l’ampleur de l’information qui nous ait parvenue dans un délai de 2 mois d’application est bien meilleure que les réflexions que nous avions recueillies il y a des années dans un processus de conception lourd. Cela signifie que nous avons gagné beaucoup de temps. De plus, nous savons maintenant pourquoi certaines de nos idées initiales n’ont pas fonctionnés. De cette manière, nous avons pu nous concentrer complètement sur les points d’amélioration.
Dans certains cas, nous étions même capable de réduire la hauteur de la construction d’une usine par plus de 15%, ce qui est un énorme pour nos clients."

Explicit Dynamic Simulation of Tool Drop on the Outer Wing of the Swift020 Unmanned Aerial System using Radioss®
The successful launch of a new platform UAS is a comprehensive design engineering and manufacturing endeavor. The full lifecycle must consider maintenance and replacement components. As these requirements often require the use of tools (i.e. screw drivers, wrenches, pliers), the concern became apparent that as the flight surfaces are minimum gage, heavy tools dropped on the structure could cause irreparable damage. The objective of this project was to determine the specification for maximum maintenance tool weight such that, if dropped from a nominal height of 0.762 meters, would not cause permanent damage to any part of the Swift020 UAS. The Altair solution included a Radioss Explicit Dynamic Impact Simulation.

Developing a New Safety System for the Rail Industry with Sharma & Associates
Sharma & Associates (SA), a Chicago-based consulting firm that is focused on providing engineering solutions to the railroad industry, led the effort. Since 1995, SA have delivered safe, effective and efficient solutions to its customers, which include the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), the Association of American Railroads (AAR), railroads and transit agencies, rail car builders and rail car component manufacturers. The objective of the Altair ProductDesign team effort was to develop an ‘Engineer Protection System (EPS)’ that can protect train crew in frontal collisions (a common mode of train collision) from secondary impact injuries.

Thales Alenia Space
Companies from across a wide range of industries are attempting to find the potential impact that additive manufacturing (AM) could have on design and manufacturing processes. During its own efforts to explore AM and its potential for space satellite development programs, Thales Alenia Space Spain wanted to conduct a research project to see how optimization techniques could be used in conjunction with new manufacturing technology. The primary objective of the study was to use design optimization techniques to reduce the thermal compliance of a satellite’s aluminium filter bracket, while also optimizing the component for weight and readying the final design for the additive manufacturing process.
