Altair HyperView™ – Design Sensitivity Analysis Utility
Design Sensitivity Analysis Utility
• Design sensitivity represents a change in response with respect to a change in a design variable, which is typically used for optimization.
• Design sensitivity can also be used as a diagnostic tool to understand what components in the system (through associated properties referenced by design variables) have controlling influence on the response in question.
• Traditionally, design sensitivity can be cumbersome to request for frequency response analysis. It can only be requested as a part of an optimization run, where multiple design responses have to be created for each frequency response at each analysis frequency; objective function and constraints have to be defined and set in specific ways to force sensitivity output at all analysis frequencies for all design variables.
• In HyperGraph 2D, the Design Sensitivity Analysis utility allows you to plot and rank design sensitivity curves from an OptiStruct dsa.0.h3d file.

Altair HyperView™ – OrderCut Analysis Utility

Exploring the Design of a Medical System with Rapid 1D System Simulation
For a recent project, Altran, a leading global engineering consultant company, designed a fluidic circuit for a hemodialysis system. One of the main requirements for hemodialysis is to keep the temperature of the dialysis solution stable while it is flowing through the device. To achieve this, they investigated different layouts and optimal parameters for the fluidic system to minimize heat loss. Since the Finite Element model comprised of more than 7 million elements, they decided to explore different, more rapid simulation strategies for the design exploration stage. Reduced Order Models (ROM) were created using Altair Activate® and Compose® and were validated through comparison with existing CFD models. The use of ROMs, with 30x shorter simulation time, was not just ideal for quick optimization of the system, but also allowed Altran Engineers to challenge, and significantly alter the existing design of the circuit by increasing the number of considered layouts by 1000% (from 5 to 55).

Developing a 3D Printed Solid-Lattice Hip Prosthesis
Total hip replacement surgeries are seeing an increase in demand, but between 10-20% of these patients may require a revision surgery because of a failure or wearing out of the prosthesis. When an implant causes a change in the typical stresses on the surrounding bone, a phenomenon called stress shielding occurs. Stress shielding increases the risk of bone resorption, bone fracture, and revision surgeries.

Topology optimization helps medical product designers develop implants that better match the stiffness of healthy bone and improve the comfort and longevity of the prosthesis. In this study, Altair uses simulation to design an optimized solid-lattice hip implant that reduced stress shielding by more than 50%.

New Simulation Strategies to Slash Architectural, Engineering & Construction Project Timing and Costs
Leading design firms join Altair to discuss high-fidelity simulation solutions for all experience levels to realize efficiency gains up to 40%.

Today, architectural design firms face two primary and often conflicting challenges: increased project complexity and compressed delivery schedules. Due to the large scale nature of AEC projects, frequent change orders, and on-time delivery pressure, more often than not the ability to use traditional simulation methods for design guidance and validation is simply time and resource prohibitive. This situation is further exacerbated when trying to achieve an aggressive design aesthetic, working with new materials, and balancing form and function with sustainability initiatives and construction safety standards.

Recent user experience advancements and the introduction of novel simulation technologies now enable a broader community of designers and civil engineers to confidently and rapidly apply simulation earlier and throughout AEC projects. This webinar will explore this transformational shift and its positive business impact on project timing and costs through the lens of leading AEC design firms and thought leaders at Altair.

Enabling EV Excellence – Simulation Helps Rimac Improve Structural Design of Innovative Hypercar
Rimac Automobili’s main challenge has been to design a monocoque as a single carbon fiber part with an unprecedented size. Hence, in the development of the monocoque, the main topic to manage was the material, a lightweight, carbon fiber reinforced with epoxy resin. As this carbon fiber is an orthotropic and brittle material, its representation in a finite element (FE) material card is very difficult. To meet this challenge the company introduced Altair HyperWorks™ into their development process.
