Altair Engineering Webinar: Design for Forming

Altair Design for Forming

Join Altair on Thursday, May 16th at 10:00 am EDT (15:00 BST), for a live webinar to discuss fully automated and highly scalable processes for the simulation of multi-stage stamping – without sacrificing accuracy.

During this session, Altair will introduce a highly automated workflow to setup transfer and progressive die simulation. Then, guest speaker Jay Weiner (Founder of BiggerBoat Solutions), will showcase the accurate process simulation to optimise final part quality.

Altair: Developing a Bladeless Wind Turbine

Altair Wind Turbine

David Yáñez, Co-Founder of Vortex Bladeless has joined the line-up of speakers at the 11th Altair Technology Conference on May 21st.

Register now to see how Vortex Bladeless is reducing manufacturing costs by 53%, operating costs by 51%, and maintenance costs by as much as 80% compared to traditional wind turbines.

11th Altair Technology Conference
May 21st at the British Motor Museum, Warwickshire, UK

Vortex Bladeless is a Spanish start-up developing an innovative wind energy technology that does not rely on blades, minimising the mechanical elements in a traditional turbine that can be worn by friction.

The presentation will showcase how Altair’s solutions are being deployed to investigate both fluid-structure interaction and the behaviour of the magnetic fields in the alternator. A general vision of the technology, the strategies used for the integration of the different physical phenomena involved and the path travelled so far during its development will be discussed.

Thomas will discuss the development of nuclear flasks used to transport waste material on public roads.

The presentation will cover drop impact simulations using RADIOSS, as well as transient thermal / structural assessments of a fully engulfing pool fire. Finally, Thomas will detail the multi-disciplinary optimisation project undertaken on the flask, using the tools within HyperWorks to avoid the need to revisit the CAD model for an efficient process that avoids traditional trial and error.

Come and see this presentation firsthand at the FREE to attend Altair Technology Conference, the UK’s leading digital design event; bringing together the UK design and engineering community to network and share successful and innovative applications of new simulation technologies, taking place on 21st May at the British Motor Museum, Warwickshire, UK.

All attendees will receive 3 months use of Altair Inspire for free, along with complimentary instructor led training for you and your design team.

 

The event provides an introduction to Altair Inspire, a powerful simulation suite for Designers. It harnesses the pedigree of Altair’s sister suite, HyperWorks, which for over twenty years has been deployed by the world’s leading OEM’s and Tier 1 suppliers.

Learn how simulation technology can help facilitate companies to ‘Design the Difference’ by accessing optimisation technology utilising’s Altair’s two decades of application knowledge. In addition, how Inspire simulation technology can accurately capture complex mechanical behaviour to verify design and access manufacturability. The technology integrates with existing CAD systems to compliment your workflow.

For the first time, the Altair Inspire software tools can be accessed through Altair’s unique patented licensing system providing unprecedented value to the Design Community.

Who Should Attend?

  • Designers and Design Managers engaged to ‘design the difference’ within their organisation
  • Directors defining company strategy and design toolsets
  • Companies interested in reseller potential of the Altair Inspire Platform

Why You Should Attend

  • Understand how simulation can inject innovation into product design
  • Assess the ease of use of Inspire simulation structural and manufacturing tools
  • Understand the unique licensing system and the value it can deliver

Free 60-Day Altair SIMSOLID Trial and Webinar

SIMSOLID Altair

Altair has recently announced the acquisition of SIMSOLID, simulation technology for fast, accurate, and robust structural simulation without the need for geometry simplification, cleanup, or meshing. Altair Engineering is a leading provider of enterprise-class engineering software including solidThinking Evolve and many more.

Webinar: Introduction to SIMSOLID

Wednesday November 7, 2018 | 10:00 am EST

SIMSOLID was founded from one simple question: “Why does the geometry used in the Design and Structural Simulation worlds have to be so different?

SIMSOLID is structural analysis software developed specifically for design engineers. It eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time consuming and expertise extensive tasks done in traditional FEA.

Moreover, SIMSOLID can analyse complex parts and large assemblies not practical with traditional FEA and do it efficiently on a desktop class computer. Both fast and accurate, SIMSOLID controls solution accuracy using a unique multi-pass adaptive analysis.
