Performance and Comfort
Altair's NVH, fluid flow and vehicle dynamics solutions drive physical prototype development by directly simulating the end customer experience dramatically improving vehicle performance and comfort. Exterior and internal fluid flow studies with Altair Acusolve provide insight on aerodynamics, cooling, noise, and comfort.
Safety remains an essential component in today's vehicle offerings, with pre-crash technologies (active safety) in particular gaining more focus lately. A growing number of OEMs are able to produce vehicles with good safety records. New consumer protection protocols keep challenging the status quo in term of passive safety performance pushing increasingly tougher requirements and advocating the importance of vehicle safety in all markets. Altair RADIOSS as an industry standard in automotive crash and impact analysis is the tool of choice in the hands of crash engineers to satisfy such new challenges.
