Exploiting the potential of Bayesian inference in combination with CAE

“SHISAKU-LESS” has been a typical motto in Japanese manufacturing for the past few years. “SHISAKU” means a trial production, so by representing the virtual prototyping with CAD/CAE, we can reduce the number of trial productions by conducting all related simulations in the finite element (FE) models. If we are going to effectively use these “virtual prototypes” to improve design and reduce weight though, we must also consider real world effects in the simulations.

PSA Peugeot Citroën leverages Altair’s OptiStruct technology for topology optimization and more

Altair’s HyperWorks – and in particular its OptiStruct finite elements solver product – is used by man major manufacturers, including PSA Peugeot Citroën.  Julien Guye, project manager at Altair, says: “The accuracy of the simulations has increased in all fields, as well as size of the finite elements models.  Simulation-driven-design – where you start with simulation and optimization before undertaking any CAD – has become a mainstream way of thinking, including intensive usage of optimization techniques to leverage mass reduction and faster design.”
