Altair is the premier provider of design optimization software, driving design processes of leading manufacturers for over 20 years. Through a complete suite of optimization technologies, HyperWorks provides design guidance spanning ideation, concept design, detailed engineering, and multi-disciplinary and systems optimization. To take advantage of this flexibility, methods aimed at driving design concepts should be employed at this stage.

In doing so, the potential for better, more efficient designs, lighter and innovative designs is maximized. The following optimization disciplines for concept design are implemented in Examplew Topology Optimization OptiStruct’s design-synthesis technology uses the topology optimization approach to generate innovative concept design proposals.

OptiStruct generates an optimal design proposal for the most efficient material layout of the design based on user-defined design space, design targets and manufacturing process parameters.

Topography Optimization For thin-walled structures, beads or swages are often used to reinforce the structures. For given allowable bead dimensions, OptiStruct’s topography optimization technology will generate innovative design proposals with the optimal bead pattern for reinforcement.

Free-Size Optimization Free-size optimization is widely applied in finding the exqmples thickness distribution in machined metallic structures and identifying the optimal ply shapes in laminate composites. Element thickness per material layer is a design variable in free-size optimization, allowing the generation of optimal thickness distributions that meet the design requirements.

Designing for Additive Manufacturing Additive manufacturing AM is making a big splash in the manufacturing community.

The unmatched flexibility offered by 3D printing allows the creation of complex geometries not manufacturable by the other, more traditional approaches such as stamping or casting. This creates a great opportunity in the design community to develop complex, multifunctional designs. With over 20 years of optimization experience with the technology and services, Altair is in a unique position to apply those learnings to additive manufacturing.

We see a great symbiosis between topology optimization and additive manufacturing, with both technologies sharing very similar philosophies in their respective domains.

To take advantage of the manufacturing flexibility, design approaches need exampkes be revisited. Topology optimization sans the traditional manufacturing constraints e. Hylermesh more literal interpretation of the topology proposal is possible given the manufacturing flexibility to build complex structures through 3D printing.


Unique to 3D printing, is the ability to print lattice structures. Such structures offer many desirable characteristics such as light weight and improved thermal properties.

Lattice structures are also highly desirable in hypeemesh biomedical field for implants due to htpermesh porous nature and the ability to facilitate the integration of tissue with the trabecular structure.

Resource Library

OptiStruct has a unique solution to design such lattice structures that is based on topology optimization. Subsequent to the topology optimization phase, large scale sizing optimization studies can be run on the lattice beams while incorporating detailed performance targets such as stress, buckling, displacement and frequency. Optimization for additive manufacturing with lattice structures Design Fine-Tuning Design fine-tuning is used when design changes are limited to changing dimensions height, length, radii, thicknessesmodel parameters material properties, loads.

Parametrization is done depending on the parameter type; i. HyperWorks offers several options that will improve efficiency while setting these studies while making sure that you achieve the best outcome from them. Shape Optimization Shape optimization is used to refine an existing design through the shape variables created using HyperMesh’s morphing technology, HyperMorph. These shapes are then used by OptiStruct or HyperStudy to update and optimize designs, easily proposing design modifications without a need for underlying CAD data.

This in turn relieves users from the task of defining shape exa,ples and allows for greater flexibility for design improvements.

Free-shape optimization is very effective in reducing high-stress concentrations. Size Optimization Size optimization finds optimal model parameters such as material properties, cross-section dimensions and thicknesses.

Ply bundles are groups of plies of the same shape or layout. By optimizing the bundle thickness, the optimal number of plies per material or fiber orientation can be determined. OptiStruct also considers manufacturing requirements and ply book exanples throughout the optimization process to achieve practical designs. Multi-disciplinary Design Optimization Design of engineering applications needs to include several different aspects of the application such as cost, structural performance, durability, manufacturability, flow efficiency.

Each of these aspects are usually handled by the corresponding expert team. These expert teams hypermesn only on their disciplines with minimal consideration of the other disciplines. This may result in large compromises in the other disciplines and also a need for constant synchronization of the designs. Merging the designs that each discipline decided upon and exa,ples are resource consuming efforts that can be avoided through the use examplew optimization.

Multi-disciplinary optimization is an optimization hjpermesh that incorporate all the disciplines involved. Models from each discipline is used under one study, each discipline possibly using a different simulation tool solver. Models from these disciplines will have some shared design variables and these variables are linked to each other during the study. For a software tool to efficiently deal with multi-disciplinary studies, it needs to be able to communicate with many solvers.


It also needs to have an intuitive user interface that facilitates the setup of such complex studies.

The different models share some common design variables and existing OptiStruct models can be used without modification. An MMO study can be setup to include: Different representations of the same model, for e. Cost vs Structural Performance OptiStruct can use responses from different disciplines in the optimization process from analyses such as static, buckling, eigenvalue, frequency response, random response, thermo-mechanical, heat transfer, and acoustic.

In addition to these, OptiStruct has innovative methods for system level optimization, and fatigue-based concept design and optimization.

Robust Design Typical structural analysis does not factor in the design and operating environment variations that occur commonly, and can cause deviations in expected product performance. Consideration of these deviations may become critical depending on the application.

A reliable design ensures that the design is safe even after deviations in its performance due to variations in the design and operating environment.

In cases where variations in design and operating environment result in the design performance deviation greater than the allowable deviation, it is critical for engineers to search for a robust design. A hypremesh design is one in which the performance deviation is within allowable limits. Reliability and robustness assessment and optimization are computationally demanding studies.
