  • A New Automated Underhood Thermal Management CFD DoE Workflow with ModeFRONTIER

    Ford engineers are challenged to find a cost efficient cooling system concept for the underhood thermal management that suits different powertrains and environments, respecting standards (NACA duct) and without compromising the vehicle’s aerodynamic performance. From a thermodynamics perspective, the problem to address regards the high temperatures deriving from the friction inside the PTU (Power Take-off Unit) and surrounding parts which can cause the oil to overheat.

  • Improved System Design of an Emergency Department through Simulation-Based Multi-Objective Optimization

    A University of Skövde researcher studied the organization of the Emergency Department (ED) of the Hospital of Skövde on how to best meet the requirements established by the County Council concerning waiting-time for triage, physician examination and total lead time though the system.

  • Multi Objective Optimization of Medium Voltage Reclosers

    Medium voltage reclosers are protection devices for medium voltage grid operators which are often integrated into overhead line towers. Finding the right configuration for the components piloting the process is not only crucial in terms of recloser lifetime but also enables excellent switching properties, ultimately improving energy performance.

  • Challenges In Industrial Automation and how Multidisciplinary Design Optimization can help

    ESTECO technology keeps pace with evolving R&D needs and provides designers with a flexible environment that handles each delicate step of complex system analysis and enhancement. As seen in the example of the robot, inserting virtual control models in the simulation framework enables designers to apply the optimization approach, calibrate the software and to identify zero-cost solutions.

  • Composite Material Multi-Objective Optimization Using Ansa, mETA and modeFRONTIER

    modeFRONTIER workflow automation and optimization capabilities enabled Formula 1 car front wing engineers to integrate with ANSA and mETA software and reduce the weight by 27.4% and the angle of attack by 2.5%, thereby significantly improving the drag coefficient.

  • Improvement of engine acoustic behavior

    The Simulation Dept. at BMW Motoren is responsible for improving diesel engines designs from the structural, acoustic, dynamic and fluid-dynamic point of view. In this presentation, BMW engineers aim to reduce noise generation of the combustion chamber that travels through the engine cover plate.

  • Optimisation in Development Phase of Vehicles Related to Total Cost of Ownership

    The AeroEfficient technology approach adopted by Bombardier and the multi-disciplinary optimization capabilities in modeFRONTIER takes into account constraints deriving from crash safety, structure, industrial design and ergonomic limits of the cabin to reduce aerodynamic drag. However, the most drag-efficient engineering concept presents weight concerns and high maintenance costs.

  • Multiobjective Electromagnetic Optimization of RF components

    Engineers sought to identify the best robust RF design solutions in an easier and faster way. Optimization procedures for 3 three RF components are presented: seven-element antenna array, isoflux antenna for LEO satellite down-handling link and 3D cavity filter.

  • Aerodynamic Optimization of AC External Fuel Tanks at Airbus Defence and Space

    Design a large external aircraft fuel tank ensuring the maximum range and endurance while minimizing the costs within a given time frame. Furthermore, due to the strict aircraft design standards, the flight conditions, static strength and other requirements should still be satisfied while meeting objectives and respecting the geometric constraints.
