Modern lightweight design is particularly important when intelligent hybrid concepts have to fulfil several functions at the same time. Join the discussion at the "Lightweight Construction Summit" with a simultaneous english translation on 26 and 27 March 2019 in Würzburg, Germany.
The limits of computer-aided simulations are far from exhausted. At the Altair Technology Conference, the simulation specialist presented a variety of interesting applications with a focus on the automotive industry.
The case study of a wheel carrier shows that simulation as a design tool offers the potential to establish fast, flexible and cost-effective processes in product development. Thus, the casting industry could change significantly through the use of simulation.
The Application Builder available in COMSOL Multiphysics® is being used in universities worldwide to introduce students to multiphysics software solutions that better prepare them for the workforce. This offers considerable opportunities for the casting industry.
A vehicle with its weight reduced by more than 200 kg, a 3D printed standard metal component and other exciting lightweight concepts: Altair and the Center for Automotive Research announced the winners of the Enlighten Award.
