Application of HyperWorks for Collaborative/Global Computer-Aided Engineering And Design Instruction at Brigham Young University
For a recent ME 471 class, a team of five students re-engineered the chassis/suspension platform for a 1969 Chevrolet Camero. At the conclusion of the project, the team presented a comprehensive review of their re-design vehicle to a panel of PACE program representatives and partners. Key to arriving at an efficient design was the early application of Altair topology optimization to the chassis, suspension, and wheel design of the vehicle. Altair HyperMesh was applied to generate finite element models that formed the basis for the topology optimization studies. The team results showed that 

The chassis mass was reduced by 34% through the application of topology optimization. The suspension control arm mass was reduced by 28%. The team was able to apply the Altair HyperWorks simulation tools in a seamless manner with the Catia-based CAD data that was generated for the vehicle re-design.

Ensuring Extrusion Product Quality at Die Design Stage
Extrusion of metals is a commercially important mass production process and extruded part are used in a wide variety of applications in in aerospace, automotive, railway, medical, electronics, consumer products and nuclear industries. The key to successful extrusion is the die design and it affects the entire gamut of production process from feasibility to product quality. A die designer faces a complex challenge of delivering a working die and often, problem dies are returned for rework. This directly affect the cost and profitability. Hence, it is critical for a die designer to ensure that the die designed produces the desired profile within acceptable quality and in addition, die is strong enough to withstand multiple extrusion cycles.

Development of Reliability Analysis and Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (RAMDO) Software
In manufacturing industry and DoD, developing and producing optimized and reliable
products is the primary goal for success of business, reduction of warranty cost, and success of
military operations. As the CAD and CAE tools are advancing, the simulation-based design
process is often used to obtain an optimum design, prior to prototype development, to reduce the
product development cost. However, a design that is deterministically optimized without
inclusion of input uncertainty will be most likely only 50% reliable.

Electromagnetic Interference in Automotive and Aerospace
Both the automotive and aerospace industries face ever-increasing Electromagnetic Interference challenges. In the automotive case, new problems arise due to proliferation of electric and hybrid cars, which carry high-voltage systems, and of wireless infotainment and safety systems, which use high frequencies. The aerospace industry’s challenges are exacerbated by the use of composite materials and by the need to protect against lightning strikes.
This presentation will discuss many of the challenges and explain how they can be met with simulation. A few practical examples involving cable harnesses will be analyzed in more depth.

Structural Component Design Optimization for Additive Manufacture
Additive manufacturing (AM) technology enables the possibility of realizing highly efficient, optimized structural components with configurations not achievable using conventional manufacturing methods. The Altair and Solid Thinking toolsets provide advanced capabilities to design structural topologies to minimize weight and maximize other performance criteria. However, conventional manufacturing processes require application of design constraints, such as directional access for machining, in the optimization that limit the structural efficiency of the resulting design. AM can remove many of these constraints to allow for more efficient configurations under the applied loading conditions. Case studies show the potential to reduce weight up to 30% for components with applied bending and torsional loads by allowing increased complexity configurations that could only be manufactured additively.

Teaching Aerospace Design Optimization
Engineers develop design and analysis skills through application of principles, methods, and tools to the solution of complex, often ill-defined problems. Engineering training that focuses on simple, focused component-level applications teaches some portion of the skills needed to execute real world problems but is incomplete. Altair has experience both deep and broad in applying optimization technologies and has developed a training curriculum aiming to teach engineers more comprehensive design optimization skills and knowledge in aerospace applications. The Altair Aerospace Optimization Academy has been developed as a series of online modules to develop deep design and optimization knowledge and skills in engineers that have basic structural analysis and finite element experience. The training curriculum leads students through complete design cycles using Altair’s advanced optimization technologies and explores the different approaches that engineers can use to develop aerospace designs for a variety of metallic and composite components and configurations.

Accurate Simulation of Short-Fiber-Reinforced Automotive Parts
For fiber reinforced automotive parts the consideration of anisotropic material behavior is required to receive reliable results. In the scope of this fact a procedure is described how to consider these effects in terms of process-structure interaction and how to achieve possible benefits such as weight reduction and shorter development cycles. The procedure is outlined with practical applications from company Valeo Ligthing Systems and another industrial partner project that is currently still in progress.

Lead Time Reduction using Automatic Reporting Director (ARD) for MAHLE
Mahle is one of the top automotive suppliers and one of the top 3 piston suppliers worldwide. With the recent advancements in numerical simulation and computing power, the FEA process has become a major tool to look at the reliability of different design variants. With these advancements, the reporting aspect remained a relatively unchanged process of manually creating pictures and tables with all of the different results. This presentation will look at the collaboration work between Mahle and the Altair Product Development (PD) team to customize the Automatic Reporting Director (ARD) for Mahle's requirements. The goal was to use to better utilize the engineers time by automatically generating a report with standard formats, pictures, and tables. By using the ARD tool, Mahle was able to reduce the lead time for a report from over 4 hours down to less than 1 hour.

Forming Simulation of Woven Composite Fibers and Its Influence on Crash Performance
The automotive industry, in its constant quest for weight reduction, is increasingly considering composite materials as a substitute for sheet metal components to meet future fuel consumption standards. However, composite forming processes are expensive and difficult to control because of the complexity of the material behavior with fiber and matrix layers or plies and its dependency on many parameters, such as non-linearity of tensile stiffness, effect of shear rate, temperature and friction. Hence, numerical simulation could be a viable approach to predict material behavior during composite forming. The objective of this study is to highlight capabilities of RADIOSS™ to simulate forming simulation of composite plies made from woven fibers, each ply modeled as a layer of woven fibers along two directions of anisotropy, warp and weft. For validation the well-known double dome model published in NUMISHEET’05 proceedings is used. The compared result is the shear angle after stamping that is, the final angle between warp and weft fibers, at several prescribed points on the ply. The variation of this angle has a strong impact on material characteristics which severely deteriorates when a critical value is reached. Hence, a study on crash simulations is performed, after mapping fibers angles from stamping simulation.

Meshing the Human Lumbar Spine
HyperWorks customer Jeff Harris from NuVasive has used HyperMesh to solid hybrid mesh consecutive human vertebrae and discs from a patient bone scan. The meshing, set up in Hypermesh, is simulated using Ansys for motion limits, stiffness, and disc material correlation. Once a model is correlated, disc implants are modeled and simulated with the goal of replacing degenerate discs.

Advances in EM Simulations

The RL-GO (Ray-Launching Geometrical Optics) solver was extended and improved in terms of speed and accuracy, and a new interface to import measured near-field antenna data from MVG/Starlab will be presented.

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. During the course of instrument panels (IP) development, engineers are heavily relied on computer simulation to optimize the design for a more robust design. Based on FMVSS 201, there are an infinite number of target points on the instrument panels that must be tested for head impact performance. Therefore, this becomes not only costly but it is impossible for the manufacturer to test all possible target points using the current conventional process.

The Use of Suimulation (FEKO) to Investigate Antenna Performance on Mobile Platforms
Wireless technologies have proliferated onto automotive platforms as part of infotainment, telematics and active safety initiatives. These wireless solutions present engineers design challenges in the area of applied electromagnetics in terms of antenna design, antenna placement, electromagnetic compatibility and wave propagation. The Applied EMAG and Wireless Lab at Oakland University possesses an outdoor vehicle-level antenna range (80 MHz - 6,000 MHz) and full-wave electromagnetic field solvers with high end computers to solve these issues. This presentation will highlight some of the past and recent research projects conducted in my lab that relied on a full-wave electromagnetic field solver to investigate the issue and subsequently be validated with measurements.

Motivations, Opportunities and Challenges of Additive Manufacturing for Space Application

A Multifunctional Aerospace Smart Skin Emerges from Computational Models and Physical Experiments
The capability to assess the current or future state of the health of an aircraft to improve safety, availability, and reliability while reducing maintenance costs has been a continuous goal for decades. Many companies, government agencies, and academic institutions have become interested in Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) and a growing effort of research into “smart” vehicle sensing systems has emerged. Methods to detect damage to aircraft materials and structures have historically relied on visual inspection during pre-flight or post-flight operations by flight and ground crews. More quantitative non-destructive investigations with various instruments and sensors have traditionally been performed when the aircraft is out of operational service during major scheduled maintenance. Through the use of reliable sensors coupled with data monitoring, data mining, and data analysis techniques, the health state of a vehicle can be detected in-situ.

The aim of this presentation is to show why AM can be seen a promising manufacturing technique for space industry and in particular for satellite application?
Opportunities and challenges that have to be faced to make 3D printed components “flying” on spacecraft are presented and discussed.
The re-engineering and qualification approach of the already existing Antenna Support Bracket, that is part of the Sentinel-1 spacecraft, is discussed as a case study to bring this topic into the more tangible context of an industrial project.
