Altair and Diehl Aviation have signed a multiyear agreement establishing Altair as Diehl Aviation’s preferred strategic computer-aided engineering (CAE) supplier.
In accordance with the agreement, Altair OptiStruct will serve as the primary solver for structural justification and certification, Altair AcuSolve as the preferred solver for CFD, and the Altair HyperWorks suite as the standard for modeling & visualisation.
“We are very happy that Altair has been selected as preferred strategic CAE supplier and we look forward to helping Diehl Aviation meet their engineering challenges over the next 3 years and beyond,” said Anthony McLoughlin, Sales Director for Aerospace, Altair Engineering. “In particular, this decision demonstrates the accelerating momentum of OptiStruct becoming the next generation solver standard for structural certification in aerospace. Standing out with its integrated analysis & optimisation approach, OptiStruct is helping aerospace engineers move to the next level by performing reliable structural justification faster while at the same time producing better and more robust designs.”
The overall goal of the agreement is to comply with Diehl Aviation’s CAE single strategic provider consolidation strategy, while meeting current and next-generation requirements for their growing CAE user base with Altair solutions, technologies and expertise in aerospace.
"With our decision for OptiStruct as our primary structural solver for justification and verification we aim to meet the current and future needs of our growing CAE user base, while at the same time aligning with our single CAE supplier consolidation strategy," said Veit Thomas Head of Stress / Weight / Simulation, Diehl Aviation. "Altair has a proven standing in the aerospace industry, and its modeling and visualisation tools are industry standard. With Altair's expertise and next-generation solver solutions, we are confident that going forward with Altair as our primary strategic CAE partner is the right choice."
