Composite optimization of a skateboard using
Altair HyperMesh™ and Altair OptiStruct™ 2019
This tutorial should help students and young engineers to get an easy access and to gain first experiences in composite modelling, analysis and optimization. Chapter 1 covers basic aspects of composites, continuing chapter 2 covering the modelling process of composites using Altair HyperMesh™. Geometry preparation, FE (Finite element)-model generation and post-processing are carried out in chapter 3. Chapter 4 covers the optimization process and the tutorial ends with a summary table in chapter 5.
