Discover the radical impact of OptiStruct 

The world is nonlinear. We all know that.  What you may not know is OptiStruct, Altair’s solution for linear and nonlinear analysis and optimization. 

Globally recognized as the pioneer and leading technology for structural optimization, OptiStruct has evolved over the past 30 years into a modern, single-solver solution for both linear and nonlinear analysis.

This includes some of the most frequently used simulation types such as:

  • NVH
  • Buckling
  • Large displacements
  • Contact
  • Plasticity
  • Hyperelasticity
  • Other material and geometric nonlinearities
  • Optimization ready
