Automated Deployment of System Models via Functional Mockup Interface with Excel and modeFRONTIER
This presentation provides a brief overview of FMI with a focus on end-user value and demonstrates a method for automated deployment of system models in Modelica as simulators in Microsoft Excel using Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) and FMI Add-in for Excel. Using existing interfaces, integration with modeFRONTIER is demonstrated and exercised with several different example system models in different physical domains.
SOMO > Product Update @UM15
Matteo Nicolich, Enterprise Solutions Product Manager at ESTECO, introduces new features and enhancements included in the latest release of SOMO.
modeFRONTIER applications in Brazilian industry
Brazilian industry is spread in wide variety of sector as Aerospace, Oil & Gas, Mining, Logistics & Supply Chain, Energy, etc. Despite their differences, a set of companies such as Embraer, Petrobras, Vale and WEG are using Optimization Techniques to better design products and processes.
Development and Applications of Enterprise Multi-disciplinary Design Optimization (EMDO) Systems
This new EMDO system is a web-based and mobile-enabled technology, which provides a collaborative and distributed execution platform to manage the complexity of growing demands of large-scale vehicle design projects. It has potential to make significant contributions for cross-attribute program developments in term of weight saving, fuel economy increase, meeting or exceeding multiple attribute requirements, as well as reducing product development time and engineering cost. A large-scale vehicle design case study will be used to demonstrate the capabilities and usefulness of the new EMDO system.
Optimization of Multi-Scale Microstructure Design to Improve Macro-Level Engineering Performance in Aerospace Applications
The present work addresses several microstructure design optimization applications such as an airframe thermal buckling problem, plastic deformation and vibration tuning problems for cantilever beams made of alpha-Titanium and Galfenol. The goal of these optimization problems is to improve various macrostructural performance criteria by identifying the best microstructure designs.
Restraint system optimization for belted and unbelted occupants in frontal crashes
The objective of this study is to compare the performance of restraint systems optimized for belted only occupants with those optimized for both belted and unbelted occupants using computer simulations.
Modeling and Optimization of Positive Displacement Pumps for High Pressure Fluid Power Applications
This presentation focuses on the approach formulated by the Maha Fluid Power Research Center of Purdue University for simulating and optimizing the design of positive displacement machines for Fluid Power Applications. With particular reference to gear pumps, the presentation will details the research approach including the strategies used to achieve optimal designs through modeFrontier optimization workflows.
Steady state cam optimization process for optimal engine operation over the speed-load map
A gasoline engine is an energy conversion device, where chemical energy is converted into mechanical energy. Many technologies aim to decrease the net indicated fuel consumption (eg. downsizing, Atkinson/Miller cycles, lean/dilute operation, optimal design, etc.). By optimizing cam timing over a speed-load map, subject to constraints, further efficiency improvements can be gained.
Optimization of Suspension Design for Commuter Motorbikes
Suspension design variables plays a key role when adapting a motorbike to different road a traffic condition. Steering torque and ratio rate should be considered for different type of maneuvre, along with acceleration at rider center of gravity when coming to comfort parameters.
Optimization of a Turbo Charger Compressor at BorgWarner using AxCent and modeFRONTIER
This work presents a numerically optimized design approach to turbo charger radial compressor development for commercial diesel applications. The design optimization includes both aerodynamic and structural components, combined via a “loosely coupled” iterative procedure. The primary goal of the design is to maximize total to static efficiency at various operating conditions, while also preserving or expanding the overall operating range of the compressor, and doing so with a structurally sound geometry.
