HyperWorks Improves Development Processes in Automotive Industry
In 2008 PWO Germany (Progress-Werk Oberkirch AG) had to develop and produce a new steel made automotive cross car beam (CCB) for the dash board of a new car. PWO received the CAD model, the design space definition and other pre-defined standards of the component from the customer and developed and produced the fitting cross beam based on this information. PWO used the HyperWorks Suite to develop the component. HyperMesh was used to transfer the CAD model into a FEA model, which was then used to run dedicated analysis and simulation tasks. To fulfill the requirements for crash and modal analysis, the company used OptiStruct to optimize the component, RADIOSS and other external solver to run the calculations and HyperView for the post processing. HyperForm was used to check the production feasibility of the individual components and for metal forming simulation tasks. It was important for PWO to have a software suite available that could cover all simulation tasks within one graphical user interface and licensing system.

Explicit Dynamic Simulation of Tool Drop on the Outer Wing of the Swift020 Unmanned Aerial System using Radioss®
The successful launch of a new platform UAS is a comprehensive design engineering and manufacturing endeavor. The full lifecycle must consider maintenance and replacement components. As these requirements often require the use of tools (i.e. screw drivers, wrenches, pliers), the concern became apparent that as the flight surfaces are minimum gage, heavy tools dropped on the structure could cause irreparable damage. The objective of this project was to determine the specification for maximum maintenance tool weight such that, if dropped from a nominal height of 0.762 meters, would not cause permanent damage to any part of the Swift020 UAS. The Altair solution included a Radioss Explicit Dynamic Impact Simulation.
