VOLTA product update and roadmap @um17
Platform performance and user experience are the main focus of the latest release of VOLTA.
Prioritization of resources for a martian analogue
CHALLENGE - HI-SEAS is a NASA-funded Martian analogue mission seeking to understand how to select and compose a team of astronauts for long duration space missions. Six crew members lived in an isolated habitat on the slopes of Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii in a desolate, Mars-like environment. For 8-months they lived as astronauts would on the surface of Mars. Similar to a space mission, resources at the HI-SEAS habitat are limited and dependent on weather, crew-use, and resupply schedules.
Application to Short Fiber Reinforced Plastic (SFRP) Microstructure Optimization for NVH improvement
The role of simulation is of critical importance to drive the powertrain design for Noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) on a Component, Sub-System and System Level.
The Future of Modeling, Simulation and Optimization at Cummins
Cummins uses modeFRONTIER to facilitate “system-level” design optimization studies, quantifying the trade-offs across system-level performance to detailed component design.
Optimization: I do not think you know what that word means
While many techniques and tools are available to perform an optimization analysis, during the relative quick pace of automotive development the difficulty is having the time to use these tools to find an optimal solution considering the number of variables and types of analyses that need to be included in the process.
Multivariate Optimization and 1-D Simulation of a High Performance Single Cylinder Engine for The ESTECO Academy Design Competition
Organized in partnership with Aprilia Racing and Gamma Technologies, the ESTECO Academy Design Competition 2016 was open to teams of undergraduate and graduate engineering students. The challenge was to improve the design of a 4 stroke single cylinder engine through multidisciplinary optimization (using modeFRONTIER) and 1-D simulation of the engine system with GT-Suite.
Model Based System Engineering: From Requirements to Performance Optimization using SysML and modeFRONTIER
Appliances are expected to perform at higher levels due to increased regulatory requirements, greater connectivity, and greater competition in the marketplace. Quick delivery to market in a predictable time is needed to win with consumers before competitors do. Large global companies have to control parts proliferation to create global leverage. These are just a few of the reasons Whirlpool Corporation is taking a model-based System Engineering approach to managing the complexity of designing appliances by using the SysML modeling language.
