Altair to demonstrate innovations in simulation and optimization at AIAA SPACE 2010 Conference and Exposition

Altair Engineering, Inc. will showcase its expertise and innovation in simulation and optimization technologies for the global aerospace industry at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) SPACE 2010 Conference and Exposition in Anaheim, Calif. The conference, themed "Space: Imagine, Innovate, Collaborate," will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center from Aug. 30 to Sept. 2. In addition to participating as an exhibitor, on Sept. 2 Altair Engineering Manager Ronald Thue will present in a session titled, "Space Transportation System, Technology, Design, and Integration Challenges II."

The AIAA conference provides the global aerospace industry with a forum to explore solutions for the advancement of humankind in areas ranging from national security to commercial development to space exploration.

Thue's presentation will examine how optimization technologies and methods have been used effectively within the aerospace industry. He will offer specific examples to demonstrate how to reduce component design time and weight, improve component strength, tune structures, accommodate modal targets and improve component robustness.

Thue has worked in structural engineering for the aviation and aerospace industries for more than 25 years, specializing in optimization and non-linear finite element analysis (FEA), and served as the volunteer AIAA Utah section chair from 2009 to 2010.

Altair has proven experience in the space industry, with expertise in weight reduction, occupant protection, durability, analysis and design of space-related structures, as well as innovative technologies for efficient modeling, process automation and data analytics. They have used this experience to help design space systems for organizations such as ATK, NASA, EADS Astrium, OHB Systems, and MT Aerospace.

Altair's exhibit will feature its optimization-based design methods and tools for developing lightweight spacecraft components using both composite and metallic materials. Additionally, Altair representatives will be available to discuss how simulation can reduce program costs and schedule slips through virtual prototyping and simulated stress and durability testing.
