‘Topology optimisation of an ALM aerospace part’
In this presentation from the 2011 Altair CAE Technology Conference, Matthew Tomlin and Jonathan Meyer from EADS discuss the topology optimisation of an additive-layer-manufactured (ALM) aerospace part. The design freedom offered by the ALM process meant that a significant proportion of weight could be saved in the part — an Airbus A320 nacelle hinge bracket — while also reducing maximum stress and maintaining stiffness.

Cetim (Centre technique des industries mécaniques), a technical centre for industrial research in France, has chosen Altair’s computer-aided engineering (CAE) suite Hyperworks to expand its technical capabilities in development projects.
Altair has announced the general availability of Display Manager, a web-based environment for remote visualisation of very big data arising from large high-performance computing (HPC) simulations. The product is designed for extreme performance even in networks with challenging latencies, and enables access to graphically intensive applications through a simple web browser.
The Altair Partner Alliance has announced the expansion of its material database offering with new partner, Matereality. With Matereality’s cloud-based software, Workgroup Material Databasepro, it is possible to build a fully functional and extensible material database to store all the material data for different projects and collaborate securely across the product lifecycle management (PLM) landscape.
Altair Engineering has announced the launch of PBS Professional support for cross-domain configurations of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which is designed to enable consolidation and cost savings while delivering robust security capabilities for high-performance computing (HPC) workload management.
Altair has introduced Hyperworks Virtual Wind Tunnel, a streamlined vertical application designed to improve wind tunnel simulation for the automotive industry. With advanced meshing, high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics simulation and an automated, streamlined workflow and user interface, Virtual Wind Tunnel is claimed to bring new levels of accuracy and speed in predicting a vehicle’s external aerodynamic performance.
