We packed up all our bags and drove out to Winnipeg

, Vice President, Marketing at solidThinking

Actually, I made my first trip to Winnipeg by plane, but I thought I’d start with a musical reference. I recently visited to present at Manitoba’s Heavy Vehicle Technology Workshop. The workshop was organized by the Red River College Office of Applied Research & Commercialization, in collaboration with the National Research Council Canada Industrial research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP), WESTEST, and the Vehicle Technology Centre.  Read More

Simulation: A Bird Strike’s Unsung Hero

, Executive Director - Global Aerospace

Another bird strike event is in the news, this time with a Delta aircraft forced to perform an emergency landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport.  Fortunately, the plane landed safely and passengers were unharmed.

Check out my blog post from last year and the article I wrote in Concept to Reality about the technology that is being used to help better prepare for these incidents to keep passengers safe.

Where I Would Like to See More CAE Usage

, Senior Vice President – Solver products

My colleague Narayan Rangarajan, Altair Engineering team leader, has contributed the following post:

Today, computer-aided engineering (CAE) has enabled high-end research in Crash, NVH, Durability and Optimization of many different industries, including automotive, aerospace, defense, consumer products and architecture, among others.

While yes, many if not all of these are essential in at least some shape or form, are these the most basic of necessities? What about the fundamental human necessities – food, clothing and shelter? Can CAE play a part when it comes to these?

Let’s take a closer look. Read More

This post was taken from Altair Enlighten.

In December last year, I wrote an opinion piece for the Product Design & Development website which detailed the current and future uses of optimization technologies and the impact they are having on product weight. As with my previous post, I’ve taken a few highlights and placed them below and I’d encourage you to take a look at the full article. As always, I’d be interested to hear your views on the future role of optimization technology in the product development process. Read More
