MDO Using modeFRONTIER and VOLTA Applied to Vehicle Design

Rémy Bompoint (Groupe PSA)


Designing a vehicle is the synthesis of many requirements, carried out by several teams, with sometimes conflicting objectives. Historically each team works on its perimeter (e.g. crash, NVH, CFD, durability…), with some convergence meetings in order to share evolutions and progressively converge on a solution satisfying all constraints.

In specific cases, MDO approach is used at Groupe PSA to find solutions taking into account several perimeters at the same time. This presentation showcases how MDO for crash and NVH simulations is handled at Groupe PSA with modeFRONTIER and VOLTA.
