“HyperMesh and OptiStruct were invaluable computational
tools for teaching students topological optimization and the
role it plays in product design”

Altair multibody tools have several built-in features to help make all these tests with ease, as well as an extensible and customizable library of parametric systems:
Tuning of suspension factors is often very challenging as one change in a hardpoint can affect several factors. Users can use Altair HyperStudy to manage this daunting task by performing DOE, stochastic or optimization studies.
Altair provides a built-in vehicle library for full vehicle analyses via the MotionView pre-processing interface, covering a wide array of common steering and handling maneuvers.
Insight+ from Brüel & Kjær creates the ability to efficiently consider test and CAE data together to assist engineers in better understanding NVH contributions early in the design process. With Insight+, users can source strengths, transfer functions, and contributions from test and CAE, which are evaluated in one "whole vehicle context" environment.
