Altair launches Altair Material Data Center

Altair announced the launch of the Altair Material Data Center, a modern, comprehensive, and high-fidelity material database for simulation. The Altair Material Data Center includes accurate data and data lineage for metals, plastics, and composites, and directly connects with Altair’s and other major solvers. 
Altair has been investing significantly in the area of material modeling for several years and recently acquired M-Base.
The launch of the Altair Material Data Center, now combined with M-Base’s plastic material database, allows Altair to provide the critical comprehensive material information and infrastructure needed to predict and optimize product performance through simulation. It enables designers, engineers, and scientists to explore materials – including structural, fatigue, fluid/thermal, electromagnetic properties, as well as manufacturing process specific data – in a standalone application or through the interface of Altair simulation and optimization tools.
The Altair Material Data Center offers a Comprehensive material information management system; Flexible accessibility and scalability; Intuitive user experience; Comprehensive simulation-centric data views; Smooth integration; Broad and deep partnerships; and Collaboration.
