The largest international show of the composite industry, JEC World, will take place next week from March 8th to March 10th in Paris, France. Altair will be hosting partners Componeering and HBM nCode, as well as presenting its software and service solutions including the integration of Multiscale Designer into HyperWorks, at the exhibition.
This year, Altair’s booth will be highlighting a multi-material automotive decklid, featuring a TCA Ultra Lite TM and carbon fiber resin transfer molded (RTM) composite. The decklid was developed by Continental Structural Plastics employing Altair’s optimization solutions, and just received the JEC Innovation Award 2016. Featured in the Sport & Leisure Planet area of the show will be the Rolo Bike, the world’s lightest and stiffest road bike made of carbon fiber, employing Altair’s software and services for composite optimization.
Altair acquired Multiscale Design Systems in April 2015, and will introduce Multiscale Designer as a fully functional part of the HyperWorks Suite at the conference, offering its customers full access to the functions of MDS, seamlessly integrated into HyperWorks and accessible via the customer’s HyperWorks Units.
Altair also welcomes Altair Partner Alliance (APA) partners Componeering and HBM nCode as co-exhibitors. Componeering specializes in structural analysis and composite structure design and is known for ESAComp, a software tool for the analysis and design of composites. HBM nCode, developer of the leading brand of durability, test and analysis software, offers its customers nCode DesignLife, the leading CAE solution for fatigue life prediction from finite element models, via the APA.
