‘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.

Altair’s Hyperworks Unlimited appliance for computer-aided engineering (CAE) has been certified as Intel Cluster Ready, verifying the product’s status as a plug-and-play technology for high-performance computing (HPC).
Altair has released Hyperworks 12.0 Student Edition, which the company claims is the most comprehensive computer-aided engineering (CAE) suite available to aspiring structural and mechanical engineers.
The Altair Partner Alliance has announced that Multiscale Design Systems (MDS) has enabled its software, MDS, on the Altair licence manager. MDS focuses on composite materials and structures at multiple spatial and temporal scales.
Segula Technologies has adopted Altair Engineering’s software asset optimisation (SAO) analytics solution to help the company monitor and optimise the daily usage of commercial computer-aided engineering (CAE) and computer-aided design (CAD) software licenses. It helps to control and consolidate software expenses across the enterprise and supports sound decision-making on new software acquisitions and license renewals.
Multi-body dynamics (MBD) software from ChassisSim Technologies is now available for Hyperworks users, according to the Altair Partner Alliance (APA). Traditionally used in the racing industry, ChassisSim simulates and predicts numerous vehicle parameters.
