5 ways to optimize your design
Gauge optimization, size and shape, and shell optimization, can be used to improve an existing design without altering its overall architecture. 3D topology optimization can be used when a significant re-design is desired because it identifies the optimal load paths of a structure and recommend material reduction. The material layout produced in the 3D topology is then interpreted into a concept design which is dimensioned and fine-tuned with the gauge, size, and shape approaches resulting in a final structure.

Deployment of HyperWorks for Undergraduate Teaching (Mechanical) by Christophe Bastien | Coventry University
Positive destinations of leavers is a key metric for any University. A major aspect in achieving this metric is to successfully develop industry ready graduates, possessing a well-proportioned balance between hands-on simulation/software experience, practical skills and a robust theoretical foundation.

Based on Christophe's personal experiences of teaching Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and optimisation techniques to mechanical, automotive and aerospace engineering students, this presentation will discuss some of these metrics in greater detail, including:

- The importance of collaboration between academia, industry and software suppliers.
- Strategies for software implementation into undergraduate teaching.
- Examples of success and perhaps some of lesser successful implementation.
- The changing landscape of student expectations and previous experience.
- Continuation into taught and research postgraduate studies

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.

Flat Panel Post-Buckling Analysis with Implicit Method using OptiStruct
Many commercial aircraft are designed so that fuselage skins can elastically buckle below limit load and continue to operate safely and efficiently. This design regime makes for a very lightweight semi-monocoque structure compared to a non-buckling design. Therefore, predicting the local buckling, post-buckling behavior, and failures are critical to design and optimization of this kind of structure. The local panels buckle in a combination of compression and shear. Excess compression is redistributed to surrounding axial members (frames and stringers) and shear is continued to be carried by the buckled panels via tension parallel to the buckle waves. The compression redistribution and diagonal tension put special strength considerations on all involved structural components. This post-buckling behavior and the analysis method are both called intermediate diagonal tension (IDT).

OptiStruct Lessons Learned from a Cambered Structure with Welds made Post-Decambering using Modchg
Problem Description
- A pre-cambered trailer is loaded to nearly flat under 1g down by a permanent payload (large steel transformer oil reservoir box).
- As the payload is loaded, the trailer is 'de-cambered." They payload is then welded in place to the trailer.
- Other operational load cases are applied as the subsequent load cases to the de-cambering load. Topology optimization is conducted with responses from both de-cambering load case and subsequent load cases.
- All subsequent analysis must take into account the de-cambering held in place by the welds. The de-camber is a "large displacement" formulation and the loading happens via sliding contact with the payload box.

Risks of Using CBAR Elements 
In FE analysis, the aerospace industry continues to make common use of 1D bending elements such as CBAR and
CBEAM elements. In particular, aerospace FE analysts use CBAR elements extensively in global loads models. However, the CBAR element has deficiencies compared to its more modern replacement, the CBEAM element. Some FEA
software providers recommend CBEAM over CBAR for many important use cases.

Developed using Altair’s Model Mesher Director (MMD) PSO (Packaged Solution Offering), the F.tech -Pre-processing Automation Solution (F.tech-PAS) is a streamlined toolset which aids F.tech engineers in CAE meshing and assembly from CAD to solver deck.

Altair SimSolid Datasheet
Altair SimSolid is a structural analysis software developed specifically for rapidly evolving design processes. It eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time-consuming and expertise-extensive tasks done in traditional FEA, enabling the analysis of fully-featured CAD assemblies in minutes without meshing.

SmartCore Datasheet
Altair SmartCore open-architecture solution enabling advanced edge-to-cloud IoT applications and augmented data analytics powered by machine learning to drive the innovation.

Project Invincible - Advanced Chest Protection
Presentation by James Helliwell, Design Engineer at McLaren Applied Technologies.



In this presentation McLaren Applied Technologies, the advanced technology, innovation, and design company will discuss the background, design process and results of a project to develop a highly bespoke protective garment. The Invincible shield is in response to a challenge from a single client to design a device to help protect vital organs after surgery. The fully wearable composite shield does the job of the rib cage – protecting vital organs including the heart and the lungs, with the garment providing further protection from unexpected low energy impact. Altair HyperWorks products and solvers were used extensively during the project for pre-processing, solving and post-processing of linear static, dynamic impact, topology and topography optimisation analyses.

Fallbrook Technologies
Traction-based, patented NuVinci® transmission is a continuously variable planetary (CVP) technology enabling performance and efficiency improvements for machines that use an engine, pump, motor, or geared transmission systems. Fallbrook Technologies has been working on improving oil flow inside the NuVinci products as it affects the transmission’s efficiency, durability, power, capacity, and cost. Altair worked with Amazon Web Services (AWS), a secure cloud services platform, to provide an integrated solution to Fallbrook including advanced GPU hardware, high-performance computing (HPC) and the nanoFluidX software through industry-leading workload management and job scheduler Altair PBS Professional™.

Processing CAE Data via Advanced Mathematical Scripting
High level, Matrix-based Numerical computing language & unified programming environment for all types of math from solving matrix analysis, differential equations signal analysis and control systems. It is an integrated HyperWorks post processing tool.
