NEW WHITE PAPER | Changing Tack: Moving to Collaborative, Simulation-Led Engineering
ESTECO partnered with Schnitger Corp. to answer to these and other questions and shed light on how the products consumers rely on are designed and created: how engineers, designers and other technical types work with stylists, who are in charge of the aesthetical appeal of a product, and with financial types, who are in charge of its cost profile, to create something the market just has to have.
Changing Tack: Moving to Collaborative Simulation Led Engineering
Designing a product means understanding the tradeoffs needed to satisfy competing drivers. Lighter and stronger? Cheaper to make and cheaper to operate? Imagine if you could examine dozens, hundreds, thousands of design alternatives before committing to a single component.
Front Shape and Slipstream for Wide Body Trains at Higher Speeds
Study the slipstream air speeds of wide body Bombardier trains at high speeds so that designers can meet the various requirements for front end shapes and develop a prediction methodology. An efficient optimization methodology implemented in modeFRONTIER helped optimize the performance and take all constraints into account early in the design cycle saving time and cost.
Optimisation in Development Phase of Vehicles Related to Total Cost of Ownership
The AeroEfficient technology approach adopted by Bombardier and the multi-disciplinary optimization capabilities in modeFRONTIER takes into account constraints deriving from crash safety, structure, industrial design and ergonomic limits of the cabin to reduce aerodynamic drag. However, the most drag-efficient engineering concept presents weight concerns and high maintenance costs.
Zefiro High Speed Train – Shape Optimisation in Aerodynamics
The focus of this presentation is the Zefiro High Speed Train and its shape optimization in aerodynamics.
AeroEfficient Optimized Train Shaping
The proceeding proposes the case of the aero-efficient optimized train shaping
Bombardier uses modeFRONTIER to optimize high-speed trains
Bombardier uses modeFRONTIER to optimize high-speed trains for drag reduction and improvement of cross-wind stability. In recent years, the German and Swedish based company has turned to modeFRONTIER to drive the design simulations, in order to try to achieve improved greater drag reduction, increased speed with lower traction power and increased cross wind stability.
