Optimization in Designs
When you hear simulation driven design, what benefits come to your mind? Hopefully one of them optimization. Among the biggest benefits of simulation driven design is that you have a chance to optimize the designs before they are finalized. Without simulation, it is nearly impossible to consider optimization in product development. Optimization as a design philosophy is ingrained in Altair’s DNA. This article reflects on HyperStudy working with APA products as they apply to optimization.

Materials and Material Management
When simulation results don't make sense, what checks do you perform? Besides the modeling aspects of loads and boundary conditions, mesh sizes, right formulations, etc., the most often overlooked cause of problems is the wrong assignment of materials and properties in a solver input deck. In the midst of running many simulations it is so easy to modify values that users forget that what they intended for a part is not what is being analyzed. Identifying the correct material values and assigning them is such a crucial step in your analysis that any mistake can compromise the results and design decisions you make based on simulation.
