OptiStruct selected as a strategic tool for A350


Based on successful employment for A380
Will be used by all Airbus development centers and suppliers

RADIOSS selected as a strategic tool


Long time experience
Confidence in Altair as viable partner

Use OptiStruct/Analysis
Convenient use and high value of HyperWorks
Freeing licenses of other software for non-linear analysis

"We compared OptiStruct and MSC/NASTRAN


results and found good correlation for linear static,
normal modes and frequency response analysis.
Bill Broene, BROWN Corporation

Solver ReBranding
HyperWorks 9.0

OptiStruct has become the de facto standard for structural


optimization in various industries

E.g. used in the development of A380, Boeing 787 & JSF

RADIOSS is recognized in the industry as high performance finite


element solver for highly non-linear transient events

OptiStruct will be Altairs brand for Design and Optimization

RADIOSS will be Altairs brand for all Finite Element solvers

MotionSolve will remain Altairs brand for Multi-body Dynamics
