OptiStruct offers a comprehensive optimization package aimed to simplifying the design of composite structures. This package includes three main optimization phases and associated techniques: Concept (free size), Dimension (size) and Sequence (shuffling). This video will focus on phase one, concept design through free size optimization.
ATK Aerospace Structures in Clearfield, UT is a premier aerospace design and manufacturing company focusing on the design and manufacture of composite structures.
ATK used Altair® OptiStruct® to provide the conceptual design ideas necessary to reduce the Altair Lunar Lander Descent Module weight and meet specified design requirements not achieved in the baseline design. In addition ATK was able to evaluate the application of composites while optimizing structural architecture of the lander module.
