Altair Pulse

Altair® Pulse™

Altair Pulse is a low-code environment to construct and orchestrate engineering workflows involving many software tools from different sources. From the broad workflows required to simulate complex systems of systems to the detailed processes needed to enable fast, reliable, repeatable modeling, analysis, and optimization, Pulse ensures your team has always the right model, for the right decision, at the right time.

Orchestrate Meaningful Models

A meaningful simulation model comprises the correct level of complexity and data needed at a particular stage of a project. Whether at the concept design stage or deep into product engineering, Altair understands the requirements for meaningful models that cross disciplines to boost decision-making confidence with fast design exploration, trade-off evaluations, and ‘what if’ studies.

By combining computationally efficient, reduced-order models (ROM) with detailed CAE analysis, Altair Pulse automates repetitive, tedious tasks using visual workflows for every stage of development. Supported by a library of functional blocks, customers can quickly create and share consistent, custom, guided workflows.

Use the Best Tool for the Job, Always

Choosing from Altair’s broad set of modeling and visualization tools – including Altair® Inspire™, Altair® SimLab®, and Altair® HyperWorks® – gives ease of use, access to multiple physics, and vendor neutral solver support. No need to open the individual tools to use the most relevant features, just drag and drop within Pulse to set-up models and extract data efficiently to drive the development of reliable, high-quality, customer-pleasing products.

By efficiently orchestrating the parameters and results passed from one software package to another, Pulse eliminates errors and accelerates simulation-driven design. Aggregate proprietary scripts into the Pulse environment and integrate third-party solvers into simulation process flows to ensure improved communication across the product team through increased design collaboration.

Explore the Design Space and Optimize Product Performance

During the development of any complex product, design and engineering teams need to use many different tools to simulate and optimize performance. Often taking place across several parallel disciplines inefficiency can creep into a final design without a truly integrated and holistic development workflow.

An example is the development of complex electric motors for e-mobility applications, requiring to juggle mechanical, electrical, thermal, and overall performance targets to reach an optimized design. How much stiffness and durability can be sacrificed to meet a motor’s lightweighting target? Would changes made to improve thermal management affect the motor’s efficiency?

Altair E-motor Director leverages Pulse functionality to set up and execute multiphysics studies, consider complex simulation chains, data dependencies and system requirements to optimize the e-powertrain holistically.

ZF Employs an Optimization Engine for the Development of Modular Motor Platforms

Looking for a pioneering solution for the complex design optimization challenge, ZF partnered with Altair to implement a data-driven development and optimization strategy for e-motors. Altair is collaborating with leading global automakers to develop the Altair eMotor Director. This highly automated environment is designed to accelerate e-motor development by facilitating multiphysics simulation, rapid design exploration, and optimization based on one or multiple design of experiment (DOE) analyses.
