An Automated Head Impact Process Setup for Automobile Instrument Panel (IP) Application
FMVSS 201 procedure originally rolled out in 1968 by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Administration to protect the automobile occupants from fatal injury during the crash. Since the beginning of the law, the automobile interior safety has become considerably more challenging for manufacturer to meet FMVSS 201 standard criteria.

Multiphysics Design Optimization Using an Adjoint Sensitivity Analysis
Optimal design methods involving the coupling of fluid and structural solutions are a topic
of active research; particularly for aerospace applications. The paper presents a coupled fluid and structure approach to topology optimization using two commercial finite element solutions; AcuSolve and OptiStruct. A gradient based method is used to minimize the compliance of a structure subject to thermal loading. The optimal material distribution to minimize compliance is computed using the Solid-Isotropic Material with Penalty (SIMP) method available in OptiStruct. A volume fraction constraint is imposed in order to iteratively reduce the parts mass. Draw constraints are used to ensure manufacturability. The thermal loading is computed iteratively using a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solution from AcuSolve. The optimization produces an innovative design which increases the heat rejection rate of the part while reducing the mass.

Fast Tracking Rail Vehicle Design
Bombardier Transportation UK offers one of the most comprehensive and diverse rail vehicle portfolios in the world. The strategy is one of continuous development that provides the most effective and cost-efficient rail solutions for today and the future. A key ingredient is the use of Altair HyperWorks enterprise computer aided engineering (CAE) solution. Altair's technology is now present at every stage of the design process and has increased the efficiency of the product development process. The paper details how Altair tools have been used to generate Finite Element (FE) models of carbodies, bogies and secondary structures in reduced time scales. Significant weight and cost savings are achieved through structural optimisation of components such as large steel castings, aluminium extrusions and steel fabricated structures which are subjected to linear static, fatigue and abuse loading. Automated post processing facilitates the interpretation of results and the writing of detailed official reports.

TokyoFlash is a world leader in the design and sales of unique watches. They use Altair Evolve to speed product development.

Design Optimization of Axles using Inspire and OptiStruct
Use Inspire to form optimization from the packaging space, performance loading and manufacturing constraints to design an axle close to production ready design. The model setup requires careful setting of axle internal component design and oil flow consideration. Since Inspire does not provide weighting for different load cases, the author was able to gain from trial run to determine the balanced load application, mass target and meshing size requirement to obtain realistic design.

The huge capacity of a pickup comes at the expense of storage. The loading area is often a simple box with no ability to store smaller items safely or secure them from theft. After spotting an opportunity in the marketplace, entrepreneur, Lance Meller, started work on a well-built alternative. Lance founded DECKED with his business partner, Jake Peters, with a shared determination to create an innovative, robust and useful storage solution for both commercial users and private owners alike. The system had to be able to withstand a load of 2,000 lbs, fit it into a wide range of pickup models including those from Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota and Nissan and be manufactured for a compelling retail target price. DECKED selected Altair ProductDesign as it needed a partner that was able to deliver conceptual design work along with advanced engineering and prototyping services.
