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.
Automated Deployment of System Models via Functional Mockup Interface with Excel and modeFRONTIER
This presentation provides a brief overview of FMI with a focus on end-user value and demonstrates a method for automated deployment of system models in Modelica as simulators in Microsoft Excel using Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) and FMI Add-in for Excel. Using existing interfaces, integration with modeFRONTIER is demonstrated and exercised with several different example system models in different physical domains.

Development and Applications of Enterprise Multi-disciplinary Design Optimization (EMDO) Systems
This new EMDO system is a web-based and mobile-enabled technology, which provides a collaborative and distributed execution platform to manage the complexity of growing demands of large-scale vehicle design projects. It has potential to make significant contributions for cross-attribute program developments in term of weight saving, fuel economy increase, meeting or exceeding multiple attribute requirements, as well as reducing product development time and engineering cost. A large-scale vehicle design case study will be used to demonstrate the capabilities and usefulness of the new EMDO system.
Optimization of Multi-Scale Microstructure Design to Improve Macro-Level Engineering Performance in Aerospace Applications
The present work addresses several microstructure design optimization applications such as an airframe thermal buckling problem, plastic deformation and vibration tuning problems for cantilever beams made of alpha-Titanium and Galfenol. The goal of these optimization problems is to improve various macrostructural performance criteria by identifying the best microstructure designs.
Restraint system optimization for belted and unbelted occupants in frontal crashes
The objective of this study is to compare the performance of restraint systems optimized for belted only occupants with those optimized for both belted and unbelted occupants using computer simulations.
