Solving Your Most Difficult Modeling Problems with Altair SimLab™

For many companies, the repeated manual preparation of a model for analysis every time a design is changed is a major source of frustration. A software with the ability to automate these tedious tasks through multiple design iterations and ensure repeatable, consistent models would both save valuable time as well as significantly impact cost.  

Altair SimLab is a process-oriented modeling software with the features and flexibility to address the complex needs of simulation teams. This webinar covers how Altair SimLab 2018's streamlined workflows and feature capabilities can address common pre-processing challenges in highly complex models, enabling your team to focus on analyzing results rather than cleaning up mesh.


This webinar explores a complex modelling workflow using features available in Altair SimLab 2018:

  • Local Updates - When starting from a solved FE model with interpreted results, users can compare and revise the current model and make updates directly to the model locally. 
  • Replace Parts - In cases where a part is outsourced or provided by a parts supplier, Altair SimLab can visually inspect the connections of a part to the rest of the assembly, facilitating the integration of the new geometry. 
  • Results Validation - Altair SimLab can estimate and display points where stresses deviate from expected behavior, helping to identify then refine the mesh locally without user intervention. 
  • Welds and Bearings - New features facilitating the modelling of challenging weld and bearing geometries.
