Day 1: Learn from Industry Leaders!

"Design the Difference" is this year's conference motto for the European ATC, the most important event for “Simulation-driven InnovationTM” in Europe.

Monday, June 26th, will offer insights into product development solutions for mechanical engineering and will provide in depth information on four different simulation related topics.

Learn from industry leaders in four parallel sessions how to:
Whether you are an expert on simulation, a user of Altair Solution or neither,
simply learn from the best - our experts and independent industry thought leaders will present successful applications, new techniques, and insights into best practice product development. They will address the challenges in mechanical engineering and offer solutions for each of the above listed areas.

Maximizing efficiency of dynamic machines

"What does a robot, a NC controlled machining center and a rotary hammer drill have in common?

All are complex machines with high demands on productivity

Maximizing the output of such machines while minimizing factors as mass, energy consumption, vibrations is a complex and multidisciplinary task.

Simulation Driven Design methods provide a powerful way to master this challenge.

Learn how to maximize the efficiency of dynamic machines by

  • reducing weight (especially moving masses) while maximizing stiffness

  • understanding and optimization of vibrations

  • predicting realistic loads through kinematic simulations

  • creating efficient simulation models

  • automating simulation processes"

Design for 3D Printing - adding value with bionic design & simulation

Leading industry representatives present successful applications of additive manufacturing in combination with new approaches in product development. With their best practice examples, they will answer the question: "How to create and benefit from an added value with additive manufacturing?"

Other topics on the agenda are:

  • How to create economic applications by combining new manufacturing technologies and a simulation driven design process.

  • Case Studies, which will illustrate the creative application of simulation technologies while actively utilizing the design freedom additive manufacturing offers.

In addition to an overview of the digital process, the achieved results, opportunities and limitations as well as an outlook towards future development of additive manufacturing will be presented.

How to implement an efficient design strategy for your electrical device?

"To lower global CO2 emissions, electric power is more and more used in many industries. From energy generation to its final consumption, many electric components are involved and have to be designed in a way to minimize the power losses. There come into play simulation tools like Flux.

Electric generators and motors, power transformers, electric cables and busbars, electromagnetic actuators: all of them can be modeled using Flux in order to optimize power conversion and transmission.

The pre-design of electric machines with fast efficiency map calculations, the accurate evaluation of losses in Flux, the coupling with thermal analysis, the connection with system level tools like Activate, and optimization studies through the Flux-HyperStudy link, will be illustrated through various examples, demonstrating how the Altair suite offers key simulation technologies for energy efficient designs."

Next Generation Math & Systems Tools for Efficient Model Based Development

Today, most products are a combination of mechanics, electrics/electronics, and embedded software. In order to manage the product complexity and ensure innovation development, organizations turn to a model based development process where models of varying granularity, guide system design and system integration are simulated.

Various stages of the development process, starting from capturing product requirements, turning these requirements into functional groups, to logical solution elements and finally into physical realizations will be covered in this session and illustrated by application examples. Altair’s Math & Systems tools, namely Compose, Activate, and Embed will be demonstrated and the interaction with HyperWorks will be illustrated.

Product development engineers looking for Math & System Tools

  • Supporting open standards like Octave, Python, Modelica and FMI

  • Leveraging legacy data like Matlab and Simulink models

  • Connecting 1d-simulation models with 3d-FEA/CFD models

  • in a modern user interface

  • available under HyperWorksUnits

should attend this session.
