‘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.

The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) has announced the addition of the Digitalclone material failure prediction software from Sentient Science. The first of its kind to be offered within the program, Digitalclone will allow Hyperworks users to better control product lifecycles by predicting failure probability throughout the design process.
Altair has made its Hyperworks computer-aided engineering (CAE) software suite freely available to all early-stage researchers of the Aerospace Multidisciplinary Enabling Design Optimisation Marie Curie Initial Training Network (AMEDEO ITN) project.
The Alphacell noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) analysis tool from Matelys is now available for download by enabled Hyperworks users. Alphacell complements the Altair Partner Alliance’s current NVH offering by helping users simulate the vibro-acoustic response of multi-layer trims under various excitations. Sectors that benefit from the software include automotive, aerospace, heavy industry, architecture, appliances and outdoor surfaces.
At this year’s European JEC show, from 11–13 March 2014 in Paris, Altair Engineering will be displaying the latest version of its computer-aided engineering (CAE) software suite Hyperworks, as well as showcasing examples of composite components that have been designed and optimised with the company’s systems, present case studies and host partner Componeering’s Esacomp program.
The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) has announced the availability of Acunexus. Developed by Novusnexus, Acunexus is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software product designed to support simulation-based design (SBD) and is based on the company’s abstract modelling technology.
