‘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 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.
Altair Engineering has acquired 100 per cent of EM Software and Systems and its international distributor offices in the US, Germany, and China. This development adds the Feko solver to the Hyperworks suite and strengthens the Altair simulation offering in the aerospace, automotive and shipbuilding industries in particular.
Cranfield University utilises CAE tools such as Hyperworks on motorsport engineering course download
Cranfield University’s advanced motorsport engineering course has selected Altair as a strategic software partner for teaching progressive simulation techniques to students.
Aernnova, a Spanish aerostructures company, has heavily extended its use of Altair’s Hyperworks CAE software suite. The company assumes integral management of large aircraft sections and provides engineering services, composites and metallic parts as well as maintenance and support services.
