composite materials are finding an ever-increasing area of application in
industry, especially wherever lightweight construction is required. With the
greater use of these materials, the demand for practical calculation and
verification methods has also increased. This seminar is geared towards the
design of optimal new structures using innovative simulation techniques. In the
training, the possibilities of composite simulation (model construction,
analysis, optimization and evaluation) offered by Altair HyperWorks are discussed
and their application is practiced on the computer using various examples.
basic knowledge (for model construction / setting up the optimization)
