  • Identification of mechanical properties based on Nanoindentation experiment

    This nanoindentation test is done as an experiment for the purpose of more efficient material design. The identification of the mechanical properties of sample materials is conducted with physical experimentation, which is then followed by simulation and optimization in modeFRONTIER. The project was done in SPACE-SI, a space research laboratory in Slovenia.

  • Study to Develop Optimum Shape for Compressor Entrance Guide Vane

    An inlet guide vane is designed for an Ecotorq EU6 engine in this study at Ford Otosan, Turkey. The optimization of this component is performed with a workflow built by modeFRONTIER software with focus on two main output parameters for the study, swirl ratio and pressure drop. The workflow incorporates CATIA, StarCCM+ and combines two operating systems (Windows and Linux).

  • Lightweight Multidisciplinary Optimization for Vehicle Part Design

    This presentation from the Ford Motor Company demonstrates the advantages of multidisciplinary optimization with the aim of achieving lightweight design. The integration of softwares modeFRONTIER and CATIA makes for quick and easy optimization with the optimal result of robust, lightweight designs. This study demonstrates an optimization process of a motor vehicle chassis part.
