Optimal Design Exploration Using Global Response Surface Method: Rail Crush

As design exploration and optimization methods have become commonly accepted across a range of industries, such as aerospace, automotive or oil and gas, they are frequently utilized as standard practice to efficiently produce designs and aid critical engineering decisions. The widespread acceptance of these methods coupled with the power of modern computing has led to applications across a range of design problems and ever-increasing complexity. The size and scope of this expansion continually pushes the boundaries of existing exploration and optimization methods. Furthermore, a complete exploration of the optimal design space includes computationally intensive features such as multi-objective optimization, to understand the trade-off between competing objectives, and global optimization, to avoid local extrema.

Computational Analysis of Quadriceps Tendon Force Following Total Knee Replacement Surgery Leads to Improved Patient Knee Flexure

Anterior knee pain is a significant complication following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery. The inability to freely extend/flex the knee has a crucial influence on patients daily activities including walking, lifting and rising from a chair. This knee movement inability is one of the most common indications of needed TKA procedure revisions. Poor sizing during surgery of the patellar knee component – a “button-like” element that increases the mechanical advantage of the extension force. The research biomechanics group in the Department of Bioengineering at Clemson University has evaluated the effect of the patella-button thickness on the variation of the magnitude of the quadriceps tendon force by applying HyperWorks-based finite element analysis.

Aircraft Carrier Alliance

<b>Creating a Structurally Efficient Design for the Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carrier</b><br><br>When making key decisions at the concept and preliminary design phases of a naval ship project, the designer is often obliged to work with limited data on the major structural design drivers for the vessel. This can lead to a largely subjective design approach which can result in inefficiency and even structural problems being locked-in from the start. To solve any issues, increased material use, weight and unnecessary complexity, as well as high design and manufacture costs can be introduced to the end product. To evaluate the potential of simulation-driven design under the unique requirements of naval ship design, the ACA partnered with Altair ProductDesign.

Heart Valve Analysis

Predicting Aortic Stenosis through Simulation Aortic valve Stenosis is a heart value disorder that narrows the aortic valve opening due to calcium build up in the leaflets. This prevents the valve from opening properly and obstructs the flow of blood causing the heart to work harder.

An efficient process was required to make this possible since modeling tissue behavior, back pressure, and the interaction between tissue and blood are highly complex challenges. Altair ProductDesign led this self funded project to improve the simulation and analysis of heart condition research.

Using HyperWorks to Generate Electrically Large Surface Meshes for Radar Cross Section or Antenna Placement Simulation

Radar Cross Section (RCS) and installed antenna placement are important parameters for aircraft designs. RCS is a measure of how detectable an object, such as an aircraft, is with radar. A large RCS indicates that an object, such as a jet aircraft, is easily detected.<br><br> SELEX Galileo used HyperWorks to generate arbitrarily large surface meshes, with defined electrical properties at the element level, for use with electromagnetic (EM) solvers to calculate either RCS of an aircraft or to determine where to place an antenna for optimum performance.<br><br> For this case study a fast-jet aircraft with approximately 100 million mesh elements was assessed for radar tracking and avoidance capabilities.

SELEX Galileo Deployed HyperMesh to Generate Electrically Large Surface Meshes with Dielectric Regions for Radar Cross Section (RCS) or Antenna Placement

This case study describes the process by which HyperMesh was used to generate 100 million mesh elements of a fast jet, with defined electrical properties at the element level. This was destined for use within electromagnetic (EM) solvers to calculate either the RCS of the aircraft, or to determine where to place an antenna for optimum performance. This was the first time that electrical properties could be assigned to models in a GUI environment, and the process has helped SELEX Galileo designers reduce development time in creating large EM models, which will drive down the cost of design activities.<br><br>

Cleveland Golf Drives Product Innovation Through Simulation and Optimization Using HyperWorks

Much more goes into a golf club than simply wood, iron and graphite. To shape the performance, the distinctive appearance, the personalized feel and even the sound of the club striking the ball, manufacturers must precisely engineer every aspect of the design. Today, simulation-driven design has dramatically reduced development time for new golf clubs while allowing them to meet strict regulations more efficiently.
