Handling the Complexity of Mechatronic System Design

Two design projects highlight how ABB Group leverages optimization-based development to handle the complexity that automation and control systems entail and to maximize mechatronic product performance, meet reliability demands and ease overall environmental impact.

A new collaborative MDO strategy for improving vehicle design at Ford

Ford Motor Company achieves streamlined, multi-user design process management by expanding its Multidisciplinary Design Optimization approach at enterprise level with ESTECO Collaborative web-based environment.

Two design projects highlight how Ford pools resources from different departments around the world and funnels this knowledge into the vehicle design process

Webinar | Integrating modeFRONTIER with Enventive and ANSYS Workbench

Enventive Engineering Inc. and ESTECO are pleased to announce an upcoming webinar to demonstrate the integration of modeFRONTIER, Enventive® , and Ansys Workbench to optimize the shape of an electrical connector.

Integrating Multi-Disciplinary Optimization into the Product Development Process

CHALLENGE  In the automobile industry, there is a constant need for cost-effective solutions that meet all business and customer requirements. A CAE portfolio of a modern company contains a multitude of different applications to be used for design, analysis and verification of components as well as of entire systems. CAE tools are improving at an ever increasing rate, yet the challenge lies in efficient management of CAE processes to ensure traceability.

Is MDO the enabler to the Technology that is driving the Change

A new approach in multidisciplinary optimization is developed at Jaguar Land Rover, one that drives collaboration among all team members. In an example, a vehicle bonnet is designed using new MDO methods. Genetic algorithms in modeFRONTIER are used to find an optimal solution.

Multi-Disciplinary and Multi-Objective Optimization for the design of a Over-the-Wing-Nacelle aircraft and a High-Altitude Long-Endurance unmanned vehicle

Two different aircraffts are optimized through an explicit Multi-Objective Optimization (MOO) approach using modeFRONTIER by applying the Multi Objective Genetic Algorithm (MOGA II) for evaluating the Pareto frontier. The investigation involved an Over-the-Wing-Nacelle (OWN) aicraft proposed by NASA LaRC and a High-Altitude Long-Endurance (HALE) unmanned vehicle.

Multidisciplinary Design Optimization of Vehicle Weight Reduction

In this study from ESTECO North America, a six-step MDO process is illustrated by solving a 2001 Taurus weight reduction problem with two formulations AAO and CO. The chosen optimization platform is modeFRONTIER plus SOMO. Conclusions show the advantages to using AAO methodology in MDO.

Optimization of a Turbo Charger Compressor at BorgWarner using AxCent and modeFRONTIER

This work presents a numerically optimized design approach to turbo charger radial compressor development for commercial diesel applications. The design optimization includes both aerodynamic and structural components, combined via a “loosely coupled” iterative procedure. The primary goal of the design is to maximize total to static efficiency at various operating conditions, while also preserving or expanding the overall operating range of the compressor, and doing so with a structurally sound geometry.
