modeFRONTIER as a Design Optimization Educational Tool
This presentation shows how the course is structured and how to guide students to gain both theoretical knowledge on optimization-based design and acquire some practical experience using state-of-the-art optimization tools such as modeFRONTIER.
Integration of modeFRONTIER and VI-grade Software for Efficient Multi-Objective Optimization in Multibody Systems Design
Each company department has been traditionally performing single-discipline simulations on a single vehicle model in function of their specific goals, which are often conflicting. A more integrated approach was required to achieve all objectives at once without prejudicing any of them.
Introduction of the optimization case study of magnetic circuit analysis integrated with jmag
Optimize the shape of a rotor of an interior permanent magnet motor to maximize the average driving torque and minimize the cogging torque.
Numerical Multi-objective Optimization of an Innovative Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled Induction Motor
The objective was to maximize the power of a TEFC (Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled) induction machine considering the API & SHELL performance and technical constraints and minimize the specific power cost in the oil and gas market segment.
Investigation About the Warm Deep Drawing of Mg Alloys Using Metamodels
Lower fuel consumption and limited emissions are one of the main concerns of the automotive sector and can be achieved by vehicle lightweighting, i.e. adopting alloys with lower density and higher strength. Magnesium alloy is among the lightest materials, but has limited formability at room temperature.
Multi-objective Optimization of Automotive Assembly Line Configurations
The early-stage design of automotive assembly lines is a critical multi-objective task. The design process is typically carried out in industry by continuous iterations between the process design department and the simulation and systems engineering department.
Understanding Real World Variations to Optimize New Generation Welding Processes
Based on the objectives of the Remote Laser Welding (RLW) Navigator project, partners aim at building an innovative joining technology platform for the automotive industry by combining a universal simulation engine and the manufacturing system design information (CAD/CAM) with statistical analysis, variation simulation, optimization and control tools.
Driving Product Development with CAE and System Design at Whirlpool Corporation | UM14
Whirpool aims to cultivate advanced engineering knowledge in dynamics, structures, fluids, thermodynamics and controls, and embed it in the design process. In doing so, they strive to shorten the design cycle, minimize the reliance on build-and-test methods and leverage the global talent within the company.
Optimising the Cost of Flooding
The ￼￼Water & Environment division of Akins UK deals with the planning of emergency response, maintenance, and minor improvements as well as construction management for major works related to flooding. After investigation, the consultancy company simulated flooding propagation and sewer condition to assess risks and plan interventions.
Applications of modeFRONTIER in Liquid Propellant Rocket Engine Design
The design of the L75 rocket engine, which started in 2008, required liquid oxygen/kerosene as propellant pair, 75 kN of thrust in vacuum and an estimated specific impulse of 324 s. However, in 2013 the engineers switched to ethanol as fuel, which caused a 30% power decrease calling for engine design re-definition.
