Altair EDEM (DEM - Discrete Element Method) is a leading Simulation program used to accurately model the bulk behavior of granular materials as well as how material loading will affect heavy equipment. Examples of granular materials can be particle-like materials such as coal, ores, soil, rocks, aggregates, pellets, tablets, and powders.
Altair Inspire Cast is a fast, easy, accurate, and affordable simulator for early casting feasibility and process development; it’s a tool that allows you to create a metal casting such as aluminum and steel and incorporate an assortment of different components to run trial and error tests. The setup for a casting process inside of Altair Inspire Cast contains five steps. Learn how to perform a simulation and choose components here.
Altair Inspire Cast features many component types that you can include in your casting simulation. One component that can be used to control the solidification of your model is the chiller.
Have you run into a case where the alloy you cast isn't found in the Inspire Cast database? Well, it's easy enough to add in a custom material yourself! Here's how to do it in a few easy steps.
In this final quick tip, you’ll learn how to gain solidThinking unit access and portal.
Having issues getting a part to mesh in Altair Inspire Cast but don’t see any external geometry issues? The issue may be internal voids.
Having trouble getting your high pressure die casting simulation to mesh in Altair Inspire Cast? The problem may be vents.
Have you ever received the “element size is very small” error in Inspire Cast? Component Mesh Factors allow you to manipulate the element sizes of individual components based on the element size of the main part in Altair Inspire Cast.
Having trouble getting your high-pressure die casting simulation to mesh in Altair Inspire Cast? The problem may be in long, thin geometric features.
