An Automated Head Impact Process Setup for Automobile Instrument Panel (IP) Application

FMVSS 201 procedure originally rolled out in 1968 by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Administration to protect the automobile occupants from fatal injury during the crash. Since the beginning of the law, the automobile interior safety has become considerably more challenging for manufacturer to meet FMVSS 201 standard criteria. During the course of instrument panels (IP) development, engineers are heavily relied on computer simulation to optimize the design for a more robust design. Based on FMVSS 201, there are an infinite number of target points on the instrument panels that must be tested for head impact performance. Therefore, this becomes not only costly but it is impossible for the manufacturer to test all possible target points using the current conventional process.

Performance Evaluation, Scalability Analysis, and Optimization Tuning of Altair HyperWorks on a Modern HPC Compute Cluster

Engineers from wide ranges of industries face ever increasing needs for complex, realistic models to analyze the most challenging industrial problems; AcuSolve is designed to tackle these finite element-based Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations with superior robustness, speed, and accuracy. AcuSolve simulations are designed to carry out on large-scale computational systems effectively. The breakthrough in HPC parallel computing that allows such complex analyses to be performed that generate the high-quality results, while reducing simulation time from days to just hours. Behind this type of computational improvement that makes AcuSolve perform, it involves complex calculations and data exchanges among computational systems. The more complex simulations are being performed, the higher demands from the cluster performance are. In this analysis, the HPC Advisory Council has performed a deep investigation and profiling for the AcuSolve CFD solver to evaluate its performance and scaling capabilities and to explore potential optimizations. This study presents the optimization techniques and networking profiling results to further understand AcuSolve dependencies on the CPUs, communication networks, IO subsystems and the underlying hardware. The paper will review the effects by comparing various hardware using different simulation models.

Motivations, Opportunities and Challenges of Additive Manufacturing for Space Application

Monash Motorsport takes advantage of optimization and additive manufacturing technologies and wins again!

Since their first Australian SAE Student Racing competition in 2000, the Monash Motorsport team has steadily improved the performance of their race car. Recently the students discovered the benefits of combining Altair‘s OptiStruct optimization technology and 3D printing. Based on an initial prototype rear hub design from the 2013 car, the team proceeded to pursue titanium front hubs and uprights to decrease the car’s unsprung mass. This was a tough challenge, since the former design was already made of lightweight aluminum. To tackle this, Monash Motorsport employed Altair’s optimization technology OptiStruct to design and optimize a titanium upright, which was then produced using additive manufacturing technology from CSIRO. As a result, the students were able to reduce the component’s weight by a further 30 percent whilst maintaining the component stiffness and reducing the development time and costs.

As design exploration and optimization methods have become commonly accepted across a range of industries, such as aerospace, automotive or oil and gas, they are frequently utilized as standard practice to efficiently produce designs and aid critical engineering decisions. The widespread acceptance of these methods coupled with the power of modern computing has led to applications across a range of design problems and ever-increasing complexity. The size and scope of this expansion continually pushes the boundaries of existing exploration and optimization methods. Furthermore, a complete exploration of the optimal design space includes computationally intensive features such as multi-objective optimization, to understand the trade-off between competing objectives, and global optimization, to avoid local extrema.

Optimizing Cooling Passages in Turbine Blades

Turbine blades have internal passages that provide cooling during operation in a high temperature engine. The design of the cooling passages is critical to achieve near uniform temperature of the blade during operation. The temperature of the blade is dependent on the thermal properties of the blade material as well as the fluid dynamics of the air circulating in the cooling passages. Computational optimization methods have successfully been applied to design lighter and more efficient structures for many aerospace structures. An extension of these techniques is now applied to guiding the thermal design of a turbine blade by designing the optimal cooling passage layout. Optimization methods will be applied to determine the optimum pattern of the cooling passages and then to optimize the size of the individual cooling passages. The goal is to produce a more thermally efficient turbine blade design that will produce blades with longer lives and better performance.
