MDGo
Statistics on fatal vehicle accidents show that victims most often do not die during or right after a crash, but in the hours and days afterwards, with research indicating that up to 44 percent of people who died in car crashes could possibly have been saved if first responders and hospitals had
real-time, detailed information about the victim’s injuries. In an effort to transform data received from the car sensors into meaningful information about the victim's injuries, the MDGo team began applying crash simulation using Altair Radioss™. The Altair Startup program was a major help to the Israeli startup company in creating a system which automatically alerts first responders and hospitals of accidents, and reports on potential injuries.


Addressing Design Development Challenges Through Simulation Driven Platform
Automotive suppliers are facing many challenges in having in-house simulation capabilities compared to that of OEM’s. One of the ways to overcome these challenges is to invest in simulation technologies that require an affordable initial investment, the ownership cost of which is low, the codes are reliable & proven, and the suite of tools provide suppliers access to a broad range of solvers (a true multi-physics environment) helping them pick and choose the solvers as per their simulation requirements. In the early stage of in-house simulation implementation at Endurance Technologies, HyperWorks was being adopted primarily for pre and post processing due to its extraordinary FE modeling solutions. With constant support, Altair team has helped Endurance in exploring and implementing various HyperWorks solvers at Endurance Technologies.

Safety Comes First – Development of a Maxi-Cosi Child Seat Using a CAE-Driven Design Process
When developing a new child seat, safety is
paramount. Dorel Juvenile, market leader in
child safety in cars, was confronted with the
task to develop a new child seat - the
Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl. To investigate
and analyze the best feasible design,
considering the occurring forces during an
accident, Dorel Juvenile turned to Code
Product Solutions, an engineering service
provider that supports their customers
in the development and optimization of
products, using computer-aided engineering
(CAE) tools. Within the development process,
Code Product Solutions engineers employed
the Altair HyperWorks CAE suite utilizing
RADIOSS® for crash simulation, OptiStruct®
for the layout of highly loaded plastic
parts that comprise the reclining system,
HyperMesh® for pre-processing tasks,
and HyperCrash® and HyperView® during
post-processing.

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.

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) requires modern transit bus systems to provide more efficient services across America. Currently, U.S. public bus transit authorities are subsidized to meet operating budgets with State and local subsidies exceeding $19 billion per year and Federal subsidies exceed $7 billion per year. The goal of the BUSolutions project is to design and manufacturer a new bus with improved fuel economy, lower emissions and a lower life cycle cost than today’s buses.

NASA
A Safer Landing with Water Impact Analysis



Using Altair’s own HyperWorks virtual simulation suite, Altair ProductDesign built an accurate finite element model of the module from CAD data supplied by NASA, as well as a section of water and air which matched the conditions from the lake used during the physical tests. The effect on the module’s structure during impact was simulated to gauge how well the results correlated with the physical tests. The results showed excellent correlation between the simulation and physical tests, identifying areas where the model, input parameters and meshing methods could be improved to give a more accurate prediction of the event.
