Recently, the team and I spoke with Digital Manufacturing Report to discuss the ways manufacturers’ growing reliance on CAE is challenging the industry to continue to evolve its software offerings. Driving factors like innovations in HPC and cloud technology are paving the way for technology advancements that enable manufacturers to solve more complex problems and deliver better usability across the enterprise. We discussed how the recent release of HyperWorks 12.0 addresses this evolution in “Altair Takes HyperWorks to the Cloud.”

Here’s an excerpt: Read More

As noted in the 2012: Simulation’s Year of Discovery post that I wrote last December, the impact of simulation continues to reveal itself, enhancing everyday products and our daily lives. From innovations in speed and crash modeling to light-weighting vehicle, aircraft and consumer packaging designs, industries are continuing to discover new ways to use simulation technology as we move through a new year. But what does that mean for simulation in 2013? How is the definition of “everyday” being shaped by technology? Read More

2012: Simulation’s Year of Discovery

, Senior Vice President – Solver products

In 2012, a growing number of industries discovered new ways to use simulation to improve their designs, safety, performance and sustainability. While the automotive sector continued to increase its reliance on simulation to make vehicles lighter and more fuel-efficient, engineers and designers found ways that simulation could save weight, costs and lives in everything from cruise ships to airliners.

We touched on these emerging trends throughout the year, and here are the top five trend-related posts that I believe demonstrate the future of simulation in our products and our lives: Read More

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
