Aerospace Applications

Provides an overview of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for aerospace applications using OptiStruct.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is evolving as a significant part of the product design and development process. With the aircraft industry practicing stringent processes for design, validation, and certification, FEA-based simulation is a proven and reliable technology that augments physical testing thereby reducing the lead time. In addition to conventional FEA based stress checks, structural optimization is an emerging trend to take advantage of the simulation-driven design process.

OptiStruct is a proven, modern structural solver with comprehensive, accurate and scalable solutions for linear and nonlinear analyses across statics, dynamics, vibrations, fatigue and multiphysics disciplines. Altair Simulation has exclusive features for guided workflow, commonly used in Aerospace stress analysis.
