Reliable and fast simulations are of crucial nature in the modern development process of technical products. Two frequently used methods in structural dynamics are the finite element method (FEM) and the method of elastic multibody systems.

Optimized Design for Vehicle Underbody System
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Emanuele Santini from Autoneum Management AG. Underbody systems are defined as parts, which are added below the body of a car, with aerodynamic functions and with the aim of improving its protection and acoustic performances. Underbody parts are subject to a variety of loads during vehicle operation, which degrade their original performances.

Optimization Center – Consistent Integration of Structural Optimization in the Development Process of Passenger Cars
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Dr. Karsten Bohle, Dr. Bernhard Wiedemann, Dr. Boris Kuenkler, and Prof.-Dr. Lothar Harzheim. Since many years the use of numerical structural optimization is an integral part of the development process in the automotive industry and helps in the design of load-specific and mass-efficient components. Due to higher requirements for cars, regarding performance and costs it becomes increasingly important to leverage structural optimization consequently during the entire development process.

Shape Optimization of Engine Moving Components with Hyper-Study Integration
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Mr. SANGWOO CHA from Hyundai motors company. Computer aided optimization techniques find broad application recently in order to search for structural optimized design. Engine components such as cylinder head, cylinder block and bed plate are subjected to many optimization studies, since the loading conditions are clearly defined and easy to evaluate as a unique characteristic constraint or objective.

HyperCrash Dummy Positioning Using Radioss Fast and Accurate Innovative Features
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Fabien Breda & Lionel Morançay from Altair. Dummy positioning needs more and more precision and sometimes moving a leg will create source of troubles or inaccuracy due to intersections at the beginning of the safety study. To avoid such troubles and increase the accuracy of the safety analysis, a process has been developed in HyperCrash based on Radioss simulations.

Stamping Process Integration of Composites in Crash Analysis
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Cécile DEMAIN from Solvay Engineering Plastics. Thermoplastic composites (TPC) developed by Solvay Engineering plastics are composites based on polyamide 6 or 6.6 as a matrix and can be reinforced with glass fibers or carbon fibers. The two main interests vs. TPC. thermosetting composites are cycle time and recyclability. The development of TPC PA66 or short fiber hybrid structures / TPC PA66 is today's challenge.

Humanetics Anthropomorphic Test Device News and Radioss Model Developments
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Robert Kant from Humanetics Europe GmbH. Main stream finite element models of ATDs see continuous improvements to keep the models up-to-date to the latest hardware, latest solver codes and to make them more predictive. New validation tests are continuously being designed to gain more insight in the understanding of the ATD. Furthermore, more knowledge is obtained on variability which plays a role in the attempt to make highly reliable models.

Impact of a new regulation for Child Restraint Systems on the crash simulation
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by François Renaudin and Sylvaine Pormente from DOREL. Injuries to children involved in car collisions can be significantly reduced if they use a suitable car seat. All Child Restraint Systems CRS (or car seats) sold in the EU must conform to the United Nations Regulation. A new regulation on CRS, known as the “I-Size regulation”, will be adopted in 2013 by the UNECE.

Multidisciplinary Optimisation of Business Jet MED Hinge for Production by Additive Manufacturing
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Martin Muir, Jonathan Meyer, and Alex Diskin from European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS). Additive Manufacturing (AM) using Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) processes is a novel and rapidly expanding manufacturing field which eliminates many conventional constraints from the manufacturing process. With the reduction of design inhibitors such as tool paths, AM becomes an ideal process for the fabrication of topology optimised (TO) structural designs.

This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Wolfgang Machunze from EADS Innovation Works. The usage of numerical optimization within the development process for aircraft structures enables the engineer to reduce cost and weight for new airplanes. Next to the evolution of optimization methods also manufacturing approaches are enhanced, like e.g. the ALM (Additive Layer Manufacturing) process.

This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Udo Behrendt from EOS GmbH - Electro Optical Systems. Sustainability and environmental compatibility are one of the major facts in the aero industry to achieve with new optimized designs, light weight construction and last not least cost reduction. That is a key driver for the engine manufacturer to increase efficiency and reduce fuel consumption of their product´s.

From Incremental Change to Full Design/Validation Leap: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Optimize Safety and Crash Performance
Heavy-duty mining trucks at Hitachi are designed to meet ISO ROPS and FOPS safety requirements, while structures must be as lightweight as possible. The presentation will discuss Hitachi’s design and simulation approach, which consists of an integrated multidisciplinary analysis process. Dynamic analyses, multibody dynamics simulations, including flexible bodies and dynamic simulations are methods applied to optimize performance and vehicle safety.

The author will present examples such as the optimization of a trolley support structure, a kinematics model of a 100-ton truck and the analysis of a trailing arm. Finally, the author will share his thoughts on the important subject of how simulation can better impact the design.

Thermal and Impact Analysis of a Nuclear Flask Design
Thomas Goulding, Senior Mechanical Engineer at Assystems presents at the UK ATC 2019. Nuclear transport flasks are used to store and transport nuclear waste material. When transported on public roads the flask must fulfil International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) test requirements, which are designed to ensure that release of radionuclides is not credible. Whilst on-site, the flask requirements are driven by the Safety Justification which can be quite different to those defined by the IAEA.

A function-led design process was undertaken to fulfil these requirements for an IAEA Type B(M) package. This required a range of drop impact simulations using RADIOSS.

Altair HyperWorks was used as a common enabling tool for the analyses. The tools within HyperWorks were used to perform multi-disciplinary optimisation of the flask, without the need to revisit the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) model. Workable solutions, proven by simulation, were then incorporated into the CAD design. This function-led process was seen to be more efficient than the traditional trial-and-error approach.

HyperMesh was used for mesh creation due to excellent element control and its capability to support a variety of solvers.

The use of HyperCrash (pre-processor), RADIOSS (solver) and HyperView (post-processor) enabled non-linear impact analyses to be performed.
