Airbus Defence And Space Joins Altair Partner Alliance

TROY — The Troy engineering technology developer Altair announced that Airbus Defence and Space has joined the Altair Partner Alliance, bringing airframe structural analysis and verification software to HyperWorks users with the addition of Strength2000.

Strength2000 software offers strength and stability analyses which meet aerospace standards, as well as generating stress reports for certification purposes. For many aerospace companies and suppliers, Strength2000 simplifies the strength and stability assessment of metallic and composite structures to adhere to various industry and handbook standards.

Said Dr. Gerd Schuhmacher of Airbus Defence and Space: “Our software will be very useful for aerospace stress engineers in the Altair community. Advantages of Strength2000 include lead-time reduction and the significant reliability improvement of strength and stability analysis tasks. Long-term reproducibility of results is also extremely important in order to support upgrades as well as maintenance and repair during decades of aircraft in-service operation.”

Strength2000 supports detailed sizing and analyzes the stresses on metallic and composite aircraft structures. The software provides efficient, reliable, and traceable workflows for strength and stability analysis, and is able to support fast sizing studies as well as check stress and qualification tasks.

Altair Germany managing director Dr. Pietro Cervellera said Strength2000 is the commercial version of proprietary code developed over the past two years by the European aircraft maker’s aerospace engineers.

“It is widely used to support the certification of famous aircraft like the Eurofighter as well as components of the A400M, the A380, and other civil Airbus aircraft, offering Altair customers unique value in terms of reliability and promises dramatic time savings,” Cervellera said.

This innovative software solution combines validated analysis methods, geometry data (CATIA), finite element results, material data, internal loads analysis, and a mature graphical user interface for airframe development and in-service support.

Altair’s HyperWorks platform applies a subscription-based licensing model in which customers use floating licenses to access a broad suite of Altair-developed, as well as third-party, software applications on demand. The Altair Partner Alliance effectively extends the HyperWorks Platform from more than 20 internally developed solutions to upwards of 60 applications with the addition
of new partner applications. Customers can invoke these third-party
applications at no incremental cost using their existing HyperWorks licenses.
