‘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.

Rolo Bikes, a European manufacturer of high-performance road bikes, has used Altair’s Hyperworks computer-aided engineering (CAE) suite to design, optimise and develop the world’s lightest and stiffest road bike.
Altair has announced that rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing expert Materialise has joined the Altair Partner Alliance, making 3-Matic STL software available to Hyperworks users. With 3-Matic STL, users can make design modifications directly on STL, scanned and computer-aided design (CAD) data in preparation for 3D printing.
Daimler has officially certified Altair Engineering’s Solidthinking Inspire, a product that enables design engineers to create and investigate structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily, for company-wide use.
Altair Engineering is set to host a free-to-attend seminar focused on the application of computer-aided engineering (CAE) in the energy sector. The seminar will be held on 2 September 2014 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre in Aberdeen.
Altair Engineering has concluded the seventh European Altair Technology Conference (ATC), which brought together 600 engineers, managers and simulation experts and provided a range of technical workshops, product training sessions and ‘The Next Big Idea’ panel discussion.
