Altair brings extensive experience in overcoming the aerospace industry’s unique engineering and design challenges. Through simulation driven design expertise, we deliver significant value to the world’s leading aerospace OEM’s and Tier suppliers.
Minimum Weight Design
The increase in global competition and environmental awareness has necessitated the development of optimum weight aerospace structures. Aligning our expertise of using optimization technology to determine minimum weight metallic or composite structures, we have been instrumental in pioneering the establishment of Optimization Centers at major aerospace OEMs.
Altair is at the forefront of technology and its application to take full advantage of composites in the development of light-weight, high-performance structures. Through our Composites Design Environment, aerospace clients can determine optimal ply lay-up structures for weight and performance, quickly synthesize and model concepts, and accurately predict impact damage including fiber and matrix failure, delamination, rupture and crack propagation.
Advanced Simulation & Analysis
We have experience developing complex high fidelity finite element models to facilitate predictive virtual testing including wings, engines and aircraft interiors. In addition, we have simulated and successfully correlated against vulnerability events such as: Bird strike, Tire burst, Ditching, Passenger safety, Impact events
