Reducing Emissions of PCDDF in Sintering Plant Numerical and Experimental Analysis
The sintering operation in integrated steelworks is one of the main sources for the production of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins, polychlorinated-dibenzo-furans, NOx and SOx. In the present study, the operating conditions, through which a reduction in emissions can be achieved, were defined through numerical analysis.
Evolutionary multi-objective design optimisation of energy harvesting MEMS

A New Computer Simulation of Neck Injury Biomechanics
Finite element analysis is a comprehensive computer aided mathematical method through which human head and neck impact tolerance can be investigated. Detailed cervical spine models are necessary to better understand cervical spine response to loading, improve our understanding of injury mechanisms, and specifically for predicting occupant response and injury in auto crash scenarios.
Development and validation of a modified Hybrid-III six-year-old dummy model for simulating submarining in motor-vehicle crashes
In this study, a modified Hybrid-III six-year-old dummy model capable of simulating and predicting submarining was developed using MADYMO. modeFRONTIER, a multidisciplinary and multi-objective optimization software, was coupled with MADYMO to conduct the optimizations in this study.
Multiobjective Optimization on Urban Flooding Using RSM and GA
Urban flooding due to climate changes, dam breaking and drainage systems being overwhelmed by rainfall causes a huge loss to mankind civilization every year all over the world.
Use of modeFRONTIER Nested Projects for Optimization of Fuel Cell Operation
The case study illustrates the procedure for implementing a nested optimization with modeFORNTIER. The optimization dealt with the operation of vehicle fuel cells. The optimal pressures, flow rates and humilities were determined for all loads with a 1000-iteration project, running overnight and achieving real improvement to experimental data. The nested workflow was able to compute the unknown parameters relating to the efficiency performance and identify better values given the experimental data.
Computational Performance‐based Generative Design Approach- Multi‐objective Architectural Form Optimization
Generative performative design is a paradigm that combines on a certain level the two mentioned approaches: form generation and performance-based design. It includes form generation process, performance models, simulation techniques and optimization algorithms all together.
Morphological Shape Optimization of a Three Dimensional Piston Bowl using modeFRONTIER and Sculptor
This presentation explain how to set up a morphological shape optimization project by integrating Converge CFD and Sculptor with modeFRONTIER This procedure simplifies the entire routine and productivity increases 5 times thanks to the automation of tasks. By quickly parametrizing complex models and controlling the whole process just from the interface of modeFRONTIER, designers avoid to build the initial mesh and have no need to “re-CAD” or “re-mesh
CAE Methodology for Optimizing NVH, Functional Reliability and Mass Reduction at Engine Concept Design Phase
Due to the global economic downturn and higher environmental awareness, the social demands for low cost and fuel efficient vehicles are increasing. At the same time the engine power is increasing and customer expectations of reliability and NVH levels are increasing.
Multi-Objective Optimization of Radiative Heating for Silicon Solar Cells Manufacturing
The aim of the optimization project is to minimize thermal variation across single substrate and across a group of substrates during radiant heating stage. Benefits obtained In head-to-head competitions best “human guided” (case-by-case) studies resulted in system design with ±10-20 deg.C thermal uniformity and took several weeks to accomplish, while computer optimization based approach allowed to quickly yield multiple solutions capable of reaching ± 3 deg. C.
