State of the Art Process Integration Simplifies Multidisciplinary Modeling of an Electric Motor for an Automobile
ModelCenter’s powerful integration capabilities simplify building automated multidisciplinary workflows. This enables the Altair Hyperworks software suite to be integrated in highly complex applications. In this example ModelCenter was used to solve an industrial multidisciplinary design problem, the design of an electric motor for an automobile. Electromagnetic, thermal, and structural performance criteria are simultaneously considered to design an efficient motor. The individual disciplines are evaluated using Altair solvers – Flux Motor, Flux, and OptiStruct. ModelCenter provides an easy way to connect the different analysis tools into a sophisticated workflow. The workflow is executed by HyperStudy to search through the design space and find the best answer.
