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.
