Optimisation procedures as an Engineering tool - examples
In this presentation, professor Giovanni Lombardi from the Polytechnic University of Milan illustrates the benefits of aerodynamic optimization applied in different sectors (automotive, energy, marine, etc.) based on several case studies.
The Birmingham Canal Navigation Challenge
Win the Birmingham Canal Navigation Challenge, in which boats have 24 hours of continuous cruising to accrue points awarded on the basis of locks used, miles traveled and remoteness of the canal and locations visited.
Optimization of External Shading Devices for Energy Efficient Buildings
In an ever increasing demand for energy efficiency, with regulations pushing towards “nearly zero energy” for all new buildings by 2020, engineers and architects must work to provide sustainable solutions. Windows are among the most problematic building components, in particular due to excessive summer sun loads and glare.
Enhancing the efficiency of a Solar Domestic Hot Water (SDHW) system with modeFRONTIER
Energy consumption for building cooling and heating can add up to 30% of total energy used. With energy standards on the rise, such as the EU’s requirement for renewable energy sources, new technologies have to rise to the challenge. Solar systems and an energy storage system within water tanks could be the answer.
Upfront CAE Driven Design “The Future of Simulation”
Competition and customer demand are constantly pushing automotive manufacturers to launch new models at shorter intervals while satisfying the ever increasing demands in performance, environmental impact and costs. In order to remain competitive, an automotive OEM must cope by applying continuous pressure to reduce cost and improve design while reducing deployment time.
