The consumer electronics industry has a more dramatic effect on our lives today than at any other time in history, and the pace of change in this industry is mind-numbing. Never have you seen such a passionate demand and obsessive need for the latest electronics gadgets, and never have these devices occupied such a large part of our time and thoughts. They have truly become our gateway to the world.
Advancing technology has made possible many things that once seemed impossible. Looking back 20 years when the first smartphone, the Simon, was introduced by IBM, who could have imagined how much our lifestyle would be changed by smartphones? Looking forward, what will our world look like 20 years from now? It is probably beyond our imagination. Modern technology in the electronics industry moves so fast and furiously that technologies we view as advanced and bizarre today may become so ordinary that we will take them for granted as commonplace.
Consumer appetites have never been so high, as they constantly look for unique new products, while always keeping an eye on price. The pressure on electronics companies to deliver innovative products quickly at lower cost is intense, and they compete furiously to dominate the market. (more…)
Jianmin Guan- Senior Program Manager-Noise, Vibration & Harshness
Noise and vibration are important characteristics in modern life. For example, we experience noise and vibration every day when we drive to work, and they are important causes for component failures in airplanes and space vehicles. Therefore, it is important for us to understand how noise and vibration are transmitted and to find ways to reduce them.
Traditionally, noise and vibration problems are analyzed using the Modal Analysis approach. Vibration modes (or normal modes) are intrinsic ways a structure can sustain motion and carry energy. Each mode is typically associated with a (more…)
Superior Industries made its first stylish mark on America’s roads with the debut of its cast aluminum wheels on the Ford Mustang II in 1974. With a roar heard throughout the auto industry, Superior’s design excellence set the standard for classy aluminum wheels, and the popularity of the company’s products accelerated rapidly. Today, Superior is one of the largest OEM suppliers of cast aluminum road wheels.
One of Superior’s main challenge was to shorten the overall product design cycle. They attacked this problem by applying the customization and automation capabilities of HyperWorks to many of its CAE processes.

Altair HyperView is a complete post-processing and visualization environment for finite element analysis, multi-body system simulation, digital video, and engineering data. HyperView combines advanced animation and XY plotting features with window synching to enhance results visualization. HyperView also saves 3D animation results in Altair’s compact H3D format, so users can visualize and share CAE results within a 3D web environment using Altair HyperView Player.
Amazingly fast 3D graphics and unparalleled functionality set a new standard for speed and integration of CAE results post-processing. Coupling these features with HyperView’s advanced process automation tools dramatically improves results visualization and reporting.

Scania chose HyperWorks – the Engineering Framework for Product Design – to automate the assembly process of virtual truck models for finite-element (FE) simulations. The new process significantly increased simulation efficiency and robustness, which are especially critical to Scania’s truck-customization process.

Engineering analysts are continually being asked to get more done in less time. In addition, they are overwhelmed with learning to use many individual tools that claim the ability to perform a specific task or component of a job. This further drives the need for one integrated suite of tools that can use the same licensing system to complete a process from start to finish. To address this need, Altair has implemented many complete processes that are flexible and configurable with the Altair HyperWorks Suite.
