Altair SimLab – Meshing, Modeling and Automation

Altair SimLab – Meshing, Modeling and Automation

Mandatory Prerequisite: This course requires fundamental knowledge from Altair SimLab. We prefer previous participation in Altair SimLab - Introduction or in Altair SimLab Basic classroom course.


Altair SimLab is a process oriented, feature-based finite element modeling software, which is broadly used in the powertrain area and the design of solid models. Direct access to CAD data and the possibility to save meshing templates, help the user achieve a consistent and reproducible mesh quality for similar components. One of its many strong points is the automatic creation of contacts and bolt connections.
Making use of practical examples and hands-on exercises, the main concepts ranging from meshing to the creation of analysis decks will be discussed and practiced.
The structure of the course is oriented towards the typical modeling processes of SimLab, including construction of mesh templates, meshing, verification of the mesh quality, assembling single components into a complete model, including the definition of loads and boundary conditions as well as materials.
