Designed for use by Engineering Students, this book provides background reading for use with Altair's OptiStruct. Together with the accompanying Projects and their Instructor's Manual, it provides a quick, complete and correct introduction to using this software to optimize mechanical components, using method like topology optimization, and topography optimization. A chapter on composites is included for the slightly advanced reader.

For more learning resources on HyperWorks and CAE, for both students and teachers, see http://www.altair-india.com/edu/students

Student Project Summaries CAE and Design Optimization - Basics2
Introduction
This material is best used after reading the book 
CAE And Design Optimization – Basics 
. Access to HyperWorks software is not essential for you, the instructor. Of course, if you choose to solve the problem yourself before working with yourstudents, you will need HyperMesh and OptiStruct.This book describes 4 assignment problems that highlight differentapplications of HyperWorks. Each problem is independent, and is completein itself. Students may choose to do more than one, depending on theirinterest.To make best use of this material you will need a computer with a sound-card and speakers. Your computer should have a media-player programme(such as Windows Media Player) and an Internet Browser that supportsJavaScript. The material can be copied to a server and accessed by clients. You can customize the HTML files to suit yourrequirements. After opening the file, double-click on any text to edit it. Use the
save changes 
 link on the left of your Browser window whenyou are finished.
Installation Instructions: 
1. Copy the folders to your computer or to your server. If you areworking on a server, it is a good idea to set the folders to “readonly” to prevent inadvertent modifications.2. The videos are best played in full-screen at a resolution of 1024 x768. You may need to install the
CamStudio Codec 
to view video onyour computer. To do this, right-click on the file
camcodec.inf 
andchoose
Install 
from the popup menu. You may need administratorprivileges to do this.3. Ensure that JavaScript is enabled on your browser.4. Each folder contains one HTML file. Double-click on it to open theinstructions.5. Data files are provided as relevant – IGES files, HM files, etc.6. In case you need support, contact your distributor or emailedu.support@altair.india.com

Redesign of Aluminum Housing
 Areas covered: 
Geometry Abstraction for FE modeling 
 Automatic Mesh Generation 
Constrained optimization with Stress constraints 
Design interpretations of FE results 
Transfer of an FE model to a CAD modeler for post- optimization detailed-design Software used: 
HyperMesh 
OptiStruct 
HyperView 
Description of the Problem 
 A military tank carries projectiles in tubes. To protectthe projectiles, a flap closes the exit of the tube.When ready to fire the flap opens, leaving the exitclear for the projectile. Each flap is controlled by anactuator, which is an electromechanical deviceconsisting of a motor, a cam, a gear train, and a fewother components. All components are mounted inside a housing, whichis then sealed. The housing itself is bolted to thetank body. In the current design the housing ismachined from an Aluminum casting.
