LimitState:Form can also be used as a plugin to Ansys Discovery Live

In the upcoming release of its design optimisation tool, LimitState is targeting the time and effort needed to design strong and light truss forms for components and structures.

Version 3.1 of LimitState:Form includes a number of new features and enhancements including the ability to specify in advance the desired simplicity of an optimised component form, for example, the target maximum number of members meeting at a joint.

Additionally, new algorithms mean that users can now much more freely interact with an initially optimised component, adding and/or removing members to customise their design as necessary.

Componeering’s ESAComp solves challenging post-buckling of thin airframe structures

Altair has acquired Componeering, a Finnish technology company specialising in structural analysis and design of composite structures

Originating through a European Space Agency (ESA) project, today Componeering’s composites simulation software ESAComp is used in a number of industries for the design and analysis of composites, ranging from the conceptual and preliminary design of layered composite structures to advanced analyses for final design verification.

The initial collaboration between Altair and Componeering was prompted by a mutual client, RUAG Space, a Swiss manufacturer of products for the space industry.
