Philomec
Canadian start-up company Philomec specializes in mechanical engineering services that helps companies design and optimize their products using mechanical and biomechanical FEM simulation. Their creation of customized, validated biomechanical models, and the analysis of simulation results by experts allows surgeons to choose the model of an implant and adapt surgical maneuvers to a specific patient, thus reducing the number of implants used, as well as the risk of complications. It is challenging to validate biomechanical models due to the complexity of materials, scarcity of experimental data, and the lack of representation of variability. The application of Altair HyperWorks for explicit multiphysics simulation provides a high-level of confidence in the validity and stability of the musculoskeletal models.

Simulation V Atoms
Dr. Nuno Lourenco, Senior Manager Body Engineering at Jaguar Land Rover presents at the 2019 UK Altair Technology Conference. The increasing complexity of mechanical systems across multiple industries poses challenges to simulation activities, where solvers, pre- and post- processors often fail to capture all control variables and noise factors affecting a system and can lead ultimately to a gradual loss of credibility to simulation tools and engineers. A hypothesis is presented that the answer is to tackle that system complexity through simplicity, in an approach that is more akin to software development rather than traditional mechanical
system design.

Meaningful Results Earlier in the Design Process with SimSolid
Especially in the early design stages of product development, variants change quicker than conventional FEA tools and processes can keep up with. This is even more apparent when full assemblies or complex structures have to be evaluated. Simulation can be a powerful tool to help inform product development decisions, but you need fast, accurate results in order to react at the speed of design.

Using Advanced Simulation to Design Leading Motorcycles
Rod Giles, Group Manager CAE & CAD presents at the UK ATC 2019. Royal Enfield has and is undergoing a massive transformation, not only in the sales and manufacturing departments, but also in the way the motorcycles are designed and developed. Leading the way in the development of all new motorcycle platforms is the use of advanced Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools. At Royal Enfield we use a wide array of different tools and techniques. The primary tool for model preparation and analysis is Altair Hyperworks. Rather than trying to cover the vast range of analyses carried out, today I will concentrate on some examples where advanced techniques have helped the design process including using smooth particle hydrodynamics (SPH) in explicit analysis to evaluate fuel tank integrity, using NVH director to evaluate and improve transfer path analysis (TPA) to aid the rider comfort, using topology optimisation to reduce mass and improve structural performance of engine and chassis components, and using MotionSolve to understand complex mechanism dynamics.

A New & Revolutionary Way to Collect Energy from Wind
David Yáñez presents at the UK ATC 2019. Vortex Bladeless is a Spanish start-up that is developing a new wind energy technology. Its key characteristic is the minimization of mechanical elements that can be worn by friction. In the first stage, its application area seems to be distributed energy. For its development, CFD tools are being of vital importance. Both the fluid-structure interaction and the behavior of the magnetic fields in the alternator are being studied mainly with this type of tool. The results obtained are being contrasted with experimental results obtained both in wind tunnel and in real application environments.

A general vision of the technology, the strategies used for the integration of the different physical phenomena involved and the path traveled for its development will be exposed.

Vehicle NVH Design & Development Using NVH Director
Malcolm Hardy, Principal Engineer Vehicle NVH at Jaguar Land Rover presents at the UK Altair Technology Conference 2019. With an increasing number of vehicle programmes, propulsion variants and body styles on a range of different vehicle architectures, it is increasingly challenging to ensure that control models are consistent to allow comparable CAE assessment.



This is essential to allow key engineering decisions to be made and becomes even more critical as Jaguar Land Rover develop Full Vehicle NVH Simulator models to enable subjective assessments and sign-off before a physical prototype is built. This leads to a requirement for a consistent and robust process, independent of the user, for assembling models and applying load cases across all programmes, aligned to demanding gateway timing.



In response to these requirements, Jaguar Land Rover are integrating Altair’s NVH Director into their Vehicle NVH development process. This has enabled the formalisation of model requirements and processes, ensuring that vehicle models are built consistently with standardised load cases and post processing. This allows the reporting of status more efficiently than previously, allowing more time for engineering development and the future ability to stochastically assess the robustness of engineering solutions and likelihood of error states.

Build, Verify & Optimise a Body-in-White Structure in a Working Day
Dr. Tayeb Zeguer, Group Tech Leader APD, Advanced CAE at Jaguar Land Rover presents at the UK Altair Technology Conference 2019. A Design exploration, loadpath studies, material selection and heavy usage of Optimisation are key to the development of a lightweight and efficient Body-In-White (BIW) structure. Nevertheless, the fast pace of vehicle development makes it a challenge to do such CAE work fast enough to drive the design and the decision making. This is why the C2 phase of the Altair C123 process is the ultimate weapon to drive the design in a fast and reliable manner. By using low fidelity models, the C2 phase allows quick iterations, large DOEs and complex optimisation studies to be executed within minutes and have a large impact on design and strategy decisions.



The natural starting point for the C2 process is the supply of a C1 layout model with associated CAD packaging data. However, another entry point is the availability of a high fidelity finite element model from a previous program. The initial activity is the rapid development of a C2 model which can generate a reliable and good quality results. This is the reason why Altair has developed various tools to ease the process of creating “ready to optimise” low fidelity models. Thanks to a highly automated series of tools combined with highly advanced optimisation technology, it is now possible to build, verify and optimise a BIW model for Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) and Crash in a single working day.

Improving Electric Vehicle Range with Advanced Losses Computation Considering PWM Across a Full Duty Cycle
Introducing electric traction in automotive brings new challenges for the design of electric machines. Nowadays designers have to consider increasing constraints like efficiency, temperature, weight, compactness, cost but also stricter regulations, while reducing time to market. Fortunatly, Altair proposes disruptive methodologies to make relevant choices in the early stage of the design, based on numerical simulation and optimization techniques.

Once the machine has been selected and designed in Altair FluxTM this webinar covers how an electric motor design's performance is evaluated and maximized considering its global efficiency along the whole driving cycle.

The next design challenge is to get an accurate estimation of the losses, which becomes more and more strategic in the design process in order to accelerated speed to market with balanced design and confidence. This estimation is also a key issue of thermal design. Therefore, the study of losses (in particular non-conventional losses) is crucial. Two methods are proposed to take the current wave form into account: by using an equivalent circuit model in Altair ActivateTM system modelling software, or by representing the PWM in Flux circuit context.
