Altair Collaborates on Biomimicry and Transportation Exhibit

May 15, 2018

TROY, Mich., May 15, 2018 — Altair (Nasdaq:ALTR) is pleased to have been part of a collaborative effort with the Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier for the inauguration of its temporary Exhibition Inspiring NATURE, inspired TECHNOLOGY: Biomimicry and Transportation which is now open to the general public. Altair’s OptiStruct, RADIOSS and Inspire were used in the design of a vehicle frame structure which is prominently showcased at the museum.

Biomimicry is an approach for creating solutions to human challenges by emulating designs and ideas found in nature. The original designs for velcro, aircraft winglets, innovative water filtration materials and adhesives were all inspired by studying phenomena in nature. Using Altair’s optimization technology, designers and engineers are able to investigate structurally-efficient concepts based on biomimicry principles to exploit ideas from nature by generating innovative material layouts using the loads and forces the product is subjected to as inputs.

“The Grand opening of the expo was a great success. Some hi-tech, yet intelligible, material was presented and people were quite impressed with the quality of our demo installation. The Altair and BRP team’s passion is contagious – it is always a pleasure collaborating with such good partners,” said André Denis, BRP Director of Technical Services.

Visitors to the museum can explore how nature inspires some of the innovative technologies used in transportation, discover close to thirty natural specimens and technological objects that share common principles, and manipulate interactive displays highlighting these concepts. Presented for a whole year at the Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier, the exhibition will then circulate across Canada.

“This exhibition showcases the work done by the Museum team and several partners whose collaboration has been most valuable. Did you know that nature rewards cooperation? As was the case with Inspiring NATURE, inspired TECHNO, it leads to amazing results,” said Carol Pauzé, Director of the Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier.

“It is a pleasure and an honour for Altair to have been invited to collaborate with the Museum of ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier to develop the cross-Canada exhibition on innovation from nature and biomimicry,” said Bob Little, Managing Director, Altair Engineering Canada. “Altair’s solutions for simulation-driven design and optimization are having a real impact on the ability of our customers to develop innovative new designs with greater confidence and in less time.”

HPC Serves as a ‘Rosetta Stone’ for the Information Age

July 12, 2018

In an age defined and transformed by its data, several large-scale scientific instruments around the globe might be viewed as a ‘mother lode’ of precious data. With names seemingly created for a ‘techno-speak’ glossary, these interferometers, cyclotrons, sequencers, solenoids, satellite altimeters, and cryo-electron microscopes are churning out data in previously unthinkable and seemingly incomprehensible quantities -- billions, trillions and quadrillions of bits and bytes of electro-magnetic code.
