  • Development of high efficiency heat exchanger for Air-conditioner using optimization technique

    In this paper, the new technique of the optimization, especially for heat and fluid problems which has a complicated design area of solution that consists of many design variables, is proposed. It is characterized by dividing design area applying data-mining to the sampled dataset, and advancing optimization for every design area. The proposed method is applied to the development of the heat exchanger fin, and the result verifying the validity is reported.

  • Design Optimization for Human WellBeing and Overall System Performance

    In the following study AnyBody software has been employed within the optimization environment of modeFRONTIER to create a very helpful tool to calculate and optimize the muscular-skeletal forces for general movements of the human body to optimize ergonomic situations.

  • Lightening of a suspension’s component through parametric design and optimization L

    In this work, the optimization, in the modeFRONTIER environment, of a rear suspension's component using an automatic FEM model generation procedures presented. The results of a DOE plan has been used to create an approximation model (RSM) in order to explore better the variability domain. An improved design in terms of reduced mass (about -30%) with satisfactory performances has been achieved.

  • Optimisation methodologies applied to the design of a gas turbine cooling system

    Design optimization techniques are a new frontier in engineering planning. Usually designers use “cut and try” methods in developing their projects, taking advantage of their Company’s Databases and internal know-how. Optimization algorithms can join this system and give a relevant improvement to the development time and design quality. In its R&D department , AVIO Group has began some projects in order to test the capabilities of 
    modeFRONTIER®, when coupled with its own software and methodologies and applied to turbo machinery problems.

  • Automated Design Optimization For A Diesel Combustion Concept Based On CFD Flow Analyses

    The improvement of fuel consumption and emission behavior is a main challenge of combustion engine development today. Further optimization of mixture formation and combustion process are needed for diesel as well as for gasoline engines. In addition the strong impact of the intake port flow and the incylinder flow motion is widely known. To get detailed information rapidly FEV uses 3-D flow simulation (CFD) for the optimization of port and piston bowl CAD-layout.

  • Improving a virtualrace car performance using MSC.ADAMS-Car-MotorSports and modeFrontier

    The application of virtual prototyping tools to reduce product development cycle times has been the initiative of every successful auto manufacturer in the current economy.For small, high performance or race vehicle niche manufacturers, the integration of virtual prototyping tools is necessary if it wishes to survive in ultra competitive lean automotive manufacturing arena.

  • Robust Design of An Inflatable Knee Bolster

    This paper investigates an integrated robust design approach for occupant restraint system by taking advantages of design of experiments, variable screening, stochastic meta-modeling, and genetic algorithm. An inflatable knee bolster design is used as an example to demonstrate the methodology; however, the proposed method is applicable for all occupant restraint system design problems.

  • Design optimization of a composite car body

    The presentation focuses on the design optimization of a composite car body

  • Multi-objective optimization of a complex water distribution network

    The activity presented in this proceeding has been divided into three phases: The first phase focuses on the position on the network of the minimum number of valves, in common with all the scenarios; the second phase deals with the determination of the optimum opening degree of the positioned valves, for every scenery and finally the third phase, which deals with the determination of the found solution robustness in respect of pipes roughness and node demands.

  • Stirling engine optimization based on Schmidt and adiabatic analyses

    The proceeding, presented at the user meeting 2006 by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, focuses on the stirling engine optimization based on Schmidt and adiabatic analyses
