Multi-objective robust optimization of the closing functionality of a trunk lid
A demonstration of the optimization of a car trunk lid closing functionality is presented in this work from the Body and Closures Department at Volvo Cars. The lid should be easy to close yet not damage the car even if it is slammed shut by full force.The approach uses a workflow designed in modeFRONTIER to shorten development time and find the solution these contradicting demands.
Tolerance Management 3.0- Optimizing the Physics
EnginSoft, in collaboration with TTC3 Gmbh implements Tolerance management 3.0 in its engineering methodology. A multidisciplinary approach using modeFRONTIER is necessary to reach optimal results when complexity and conflicting targets are present. This will drive quality in the product line long-term.
Optimization of Active Grille Shutters Operation for Increased Fuel Economy
This presentations shows the optimization of active grill shutters in order to improve fuel economy and reduce drag penalty of a motor vehicle. The integration of softwares modeFRONTIER and Exa PowerFLOW facilitate the optimization process bringing valid results for the design of a more fuel-efficient vehicle.
Engineering success in the America's Cup
This presentation demonstrates new optimization solutions for Land Rover Bar yacht racing team and America's Cup races. The optimization examples use NX tools and software modeFRONTIER to find the optimal solution for improved efficiency in design.
Aero Optimization of Volvo S60 WTCC Race Car
The Volvo S60 is the racing car used by Cyan racing in the World Touring Car Championships. Optimization software modeFRONTIER was chosen for the aero optimization process of the vehicle, due to the complexity of the format of the championship, limited time and limited prior experience.
