Altair (Troy, Michigan, USA), a leader in convergent simulation, high performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI), announced the Altair Material Data Center consortium, designed to make the Altair Material Data Center (AMDC) a material information resource to support the design and manufacture of innovative products.

According to Altair, the development of durable, efficient and minimum weight designs requires precise, multi-domain material properties – and the selection of these materials is an essential step in product development. Launched in 2020, AMDC provides a wide range of metallic, plastic and composite material properties for tasks such as virtual prototyping and simulation. It allows designers, engineers and scientists to browse, search and compare materials in a standalone application or through the interface of their simulation and optimization tools.

Consortium members will share their real-world experiences and best practices, and ensure that the AMDC roadmap accurately reflects their needs. In addition to providing strategic advice, organizations serving on the Consortium Steering Committee will benefit from early access to Altair’s latest software and innovations.

“We are delighted to welcome industry leaders such as Nikola Motors [Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S.] and the National Aeronautical Research Institute [Wichita, Kan., U.S.] consortium,” said Stephanie Buckner, senior vice president of customer engagement and business development at Altair.
