JEC World 2018: Altair Showcases Simulation-Driven Design Methods and Tools

Altair will present its comprehensive technology and expertise for the design, optimisation and simulation of composite structures and materials at this year's JEC World.

The Altair-hosted opening day conference session on 'Simulation-Driven Design for Composites' will feature presentations from companies including Airbus, CETIM, Gordon Murray Design and Pronal, demonstrating how Altair helped them create innovative products and improve their development processes for composites.

The Altair session will also feature a presentation by Atanas Zhelev, Chief Architect at DigitalArchitects, on modern organic architectural designs using innovative composite materials. Complementing his presentation is one of this year's highlighted products at Altair's booth, the 'Sella Chair' by Zhelev and Mariya Korolova, made of a high-performance wood-carbon composite material. It was developed to evaluate the performance of this design and manufacturing method on a larger scale, and considers architectural construction requirements in addition to product functionality.

“JEC World in Paris is the go-to event for the composite industry, and Altair is delighted to present our solutions for simulation, design, and optimisation,” says Jeffrey Wollschlager, Senior Director - Composite Technologies at Altair. "With the constant addition of new technology into HyperWorks and the Altair Partner Alliance (APA), including our 2017 ESAComp acquisition, our software for composite design is more powerful than ever. The Sella Chair provides an excellent example of how simulation can be used to develop innovative and high-quality composite products.”

The Altair conference session will take place on 6 March at 1:30 pm in JEC AGORA, Hall 5.
