Altair Named Official Supplier for Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team
Altair’s simulation solutions have been applied to design, develop, and optimize most of the boat’s components, and used to study the structural side of fluid structure interaction (FSI). With this type of analysis, the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli engineers investigated the response of the boat’s overall structural model to its impact with water, obtaining important information on how the composite structures of the hull, deck, and interior would react under dynamic conditions. The engineers also evaluated the shape of the components immersed in water under load, taking into account the orthotropic elastic properties of composites and connecting structures. Finally, the team applied topology optimization on many metal components to fully exploit the design flexibility provided by additive manufacturing. These optimizations resulted in organic structures with optimal material distribution at maximum stiffness.
“We are delighted to welcome Altair as an official supplier,” said
“Altair empowers innovation,” said
