Solidthinking, Inc. has released a new software suite for multidisciplinary design and calculation. This model-based development suite is intended to promote innovation through simulation. The combination of mathematical, signal-based, physical and three-dimensional modeling technology is unique. This enables concept studies, controller development, optimization of the overall system, as well as the implementation and testing of control units.
"These new tools were developed with awareness of where innovation really takes place," says Dr. Michael Hoffmann, Senior Vice President for Math and Systems, Solidthinking. “In the age of the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0, it is important to offer solutions that support multidisciplinary development, taking into account all mechanical, electrical and control systems. This is the only way to develop innovative products for a wide variety of applications, from autonomous vehicles to wearables.”
Solidthinking's model-based development software includes:
- Compose offers engineers, scientists and product developers a matrix-based language and a modern programming environment at the highest level and includes all types of mathematical operations, including matrix analysis, differential equations, signal analysis and controller design.
- Activate enables product developers and engineers from the areas of system simulation and control technology to model, simulate and optimize multidisciplinary systems using a block diagram environment. The dual modeling is unique; signal-based and physical (Modelica) modeling in the same diagram.
- Embed enables control engineers and developers of embedded products to integrate multirate control systems very quickly on the desired microprocessors thanks to its powerful "diagram-to-code" function.
Solidthinkings Compose, Activate and Embed are easily available for customers via the global partner network and Altair's patented Hyperworks license model. (mz)
The Altair Partner Alliance has expanded its portfolio with the AVL Cruise M software. The solution for multidisciplinary system simulation is designed for model-based development by using high-quality real-time models from various application areas (engine, flow, exhaust gas aftertreatment, drive train, electrics, hydraulics, etc.)
Already in the design phase in mechanical and plant engineering, it is important to avoid collisions between components and, as a result, expensive changes and delays in commissioning. Core technology has developed a new tool for this
With Flux 12.3 Altair has introduced the new version of the software for low-frequency electromagnetic and thermal simulation. Flux, now part of the Altair Hyperworks simulation platform, is the perfect tool for the analysis, design and optimization of applications such as electrical drives, actuators and sensors, high-voltage equipment as well as for examinations for heat treatment or electromagnetic Compatibility
Recognizing and utilizing potential for improvement before an investment casting is ever manufactured saves a lot of time and costs. Feinguss Blank implements this development with new development techniques
Development methods for smart devices and modern manufacturing are the focus at Altair at the Hanover Fair. You can see u. a virtual cobot demonstrator. At the lightweight construction user meeting in 2017, Altair will also present examples of a simulation-driven design
