Altair for Automotive Design

 
Battery life analysis-1

BEV, AV and ADAS Systems Development

Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV), Autonomous Vehicle (AV) and Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are becoming more and more prevalent, and also present new challenges.

Altair Feko helps users understand the electromagnetic environment including 5G antenna networks, and its impact on design.

Altair PollEx includes a complete set of PCB verification tools that allow users avoid costly product failures.

 

Automotive Lightweighting-3

Lightweighting and Generative Design

One of the biggest challenges in automotive design is reducing mass or volume while maintaining strength and stiffness. Both Altair OptiStruct and Altair Inspire include industry-leading technology for both lightweighting and generative design. Using these tools users can make their vehicles more fuel and energy efficient.

Integration of the structural tools on the HyperWorks platform ensures users can take advantage of multiphysics testing without having to leave the model, including Altair HyperMesh as the gold standard for mesh creation.

Automotive Manufacturing

Sheet metal stamping is a foundation in the automotive manufacturing industry. This process can include tool and die process combinations to create the final product.

Avoid common defects in sheet metal forming like wrinkles and cracks using Altair Inspire Form.

Many parts used in automotive and vehicle design are manufactured by a metal casting process. Using Altair Inspire Cast, users can understand common defects in their current process like air traps, porosity and cold shuts.

 

 

Automotive NVH-1
Noise, Vibration and Harshness
Another consideration designers have to take into account is how noise and vibration impact performance.
 
The Altair NVH Director aggregates tools on the HyperWorks platform to give users a robust analysis tool.
 
The Altair Squeak and Rattle Director, also on the HyperWorks platform, enables users to identify and dismiss squeak and rattles in the design early in the development cycle.
