Learn how Altair's Solution-oriented Approach Accelerates your Product Development

Recordings Solution Oriented Product Demo Series

From concept to reality

Are you facing a complex product development task and are asking yourself how to address the different physics and domains involved? You will receive answers if you follow our virtual event series of successive customer-oriented product demos.

From 1D to 3D - in this series you will learn step-by-step with two examples, the development of a radar antenna and a wheel carrier, how Altair's Multiphysics Solution-Oriented Approach is working for all the tools and processes involved in the product development while optimizing performance.

Who are the product demos for?

These product demos are made for existing customers who want to get a better understanding of all Altair solutions involved in product development and their possibilities. And for all interested engineers and CAD-designers who want to get to know the possibilities of Altair.

In short, these product demos are for you if you want to:

• learn how to reduce development times,
• fully understand your system’s behavior,
• optimize and validate performance considering manufacturing realities,
• learn more about frontloading your development processes.

Radar Antenna Series

Creation of a detailed multi-body dynamic plant for system simulation including component flexibility


The demo will focus on the mechanical plant within the system simulation of a radar antenna. The software Altair MotionView is used to create a multi-stage planetary gear including non-linear contact between wheels. The parabola flexibility will be taken into account by the use of a Super-Element generated by our finite element Solver Altair OptiStruct. Finally, the creation of plant-input and plant-output necessary for co-simulation will be demonstrated.

E-motor setup and simulation with Altair Flux and export for system simulation components with various levels of fidelity


The current demo is part of an ongoing webinar series that deals with the multiphysics simulation of a radar antenna. In this particular webinar we focus on our low frequency EM solver Altair Flux to model e-motors. Subsequently we will export the Flux model for system simulation using reduced order models or for performing a complete co-simulation.

Towards multi-domain and multi-discipline approaches using a comprehensive system simulation model of a radar antenna


In this demo, we learn how to combine different component models from different simulation disciplines (e.g. FEM, MBS, CFD) within one system model and add relevant 1D components for controls and optimization. The goal is the evaluation of the overall functional behavior incl. interdependencies between all physical domains.
