Optimization of 2-stroke SI engine concept with stoichiometric mixture
A 2-stroke engine concept has been compared with a 4-stroke using calibrated simulation tools GT-Power and modeFRONTIER. Under the same operating conditions (full load), the 4-stroke supercharged engine proved to be clearly superior, even though the 2-stroke engine has potential for better mechanical efficiency.
Multi-Objective optimization of front and rear crossbeams and crash-boxes for low speed bumper barrier tests
The presented methodology has the objective of optimizing a small vehicle archetype in the rear and front crossbeams and crash boxes. The FE model of the front and rear bumper system has been optimized using DOE and response surface methodologies.
Cost competitiveness & product development. An innovative methodology Applications
The automatic multi-objective product optimization led to a substantial reduction of calculation time and costs, and resulted in the identification of optimal parameter configurations and of the cheapest technology for container manufacturing
Optimization under uncertainty of tear substitute rheological properties
Shear-thinning tear substitutes have been studied as single and multi-objective optimization problem in order to identify their best performance. Both deterministic and stochastic analysis have been performed (MORDO function in modeFRONTIER), establishing low sensitivity to practical uncertainties.
Multiobjective Robust Design Optimization of docked ligand
The multi-objective approach to ligand docking could be used to tune the coefficient of a generic weighted-sum scoring function in a single-objective analysis, whereas a robust design-based approach seems to allow for an effective limited inclusion of receptor flexibility.
Optimization strategies in enzyme engineering
The aim of enzyme engineering is to modify enzyme structure to introduce different properties. modeFRONTIER has been used to drive the generation of enzyme mutants, molecular dynamics a
modeFRONTIER radio frequency exploration at FERMI@Elettra project
The optimization of a high-energy radio frequency deflector (HERFD) geometry has be performed so as to minimize its maximum temperature (50% improvement) and increase resistance (33.33% improvement).
Multi-objective optimization of RF components using CST Microwave Studio and modeFRONTIER
The integration of the two software is presented using two case studies: a cavity filter and an isoflux antenna. In the first case modeFRONTIER enabled to meet the design targets, whereas in the second case it identified the best compromise between the most important requirements.
3D Shape Optimization For Supercritical Flow using modeFRONTIER
modeFRONTIER has been used for the complex optimization of several aspects of an experimental fuel cell-powered air vehicle, such as air intake, stability, external drag and profile
Applications of modeFRONTIER in the water industry
The presentation provides an overview of the use of modeFRONTIER in conjuction with Infoworks, a software for the analysis and management of distribution network models. modeFRONTIER manages the VisualBasic interface with Infoworks, allowing to modify and examine simulations of different models.
