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. 


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.
