This course is intended to provide an overview of performing Composite Analysis and Optimization using HyperMesh and OptiStruct. Students will learn the basic concepts about composite and how to perform analysis and optimization on models with these materials. This is a theoretical and practical course that covers all design steps for systems manufactured with composite materials using an automated optimization technique developed inside HyperWorks.
This session Altair’s senior training specialist, Erik Larson, will highlighting the capabilities of Altair’s award winning solver technology found in OptiStruct. Live demonstrations will show off the Linear Analysis capabilities as well as the multi-disciplinary Optimization capabilities found in this industry leading software. Linear static, modal and buckling analysis as well as topology, topography, size, shape, free size and free shape optimization techniques will be shown.
This session Altair’s senior training specialist, Erik Larson, will be highlighting the Pre and Post processing capabilities of Altair’s flagship products, HyperMesh and HyperView. Attendees will see live demonstrations of the advanced geometry handling, meshing, and universal analysis setup capabilities of HyperMesh and the power and ease of use of the unique post processing capabilities of HyperView.
In this session, Marc Ratzel will give a quick overview of automotive aerodynamic studies before presenting HyperWorks tools in action. Amongst other topics this will include model preparation, design changes using morphing, solver technology (Navier-Stokes as well as Lattice Boltzmann) and shape optimization.
In this session, Altair’s Rahul Ponginan will be highlighting the optimization driven design process using solidThinking Inspire. We will be learning how to create/import geometry, then proceed to set up the model for topology optimization, analyse the design concept generated and then recreate geometry for final design. In addition Rahul will highlight how you can develop early stage layouts for space frame structures using topology optimization within the Inspire software.
