Altair has signed an agreement with Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd. (MDL) to collaborate in multiple simulation areas. In this collaboration, MDL will use Altair solutions for simulation-driven design and validation, structural fidelity calculations, shock and vibration assessments, hydrodynamic loading, electromagnetic simulation and more.
The collaboration agreement strengthens the relationship between the two companies, as MDL already uses various Altair solutions to develop its ship design and engineering offerings. Altair solutions are used in the marine and maritime industries. Altair helps naval architects address complex engineering challenges and mitigate environmental risks associated with seagoing loads including structural, hydro, dynamic, thermal, and fatigue, as well as above surface and underwater weapon threats for the military and homeland security.
“We’re thrilled to continue our work with MDL,” says Panduranga Rao Chirala, senior vice president of strategic initiatives, Altair India. “Further and more extensive collaboration between Altair and MDL will lead to breakthroughs in marine and defense technology that make vessels safer and more efficient for their crews.”
