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.

Highly Optimized Passive Lubrication System for an EV Transmission
Presentation by Dr. Milos Stanic, nanoFluidX Product Manager at Altair.

Optimising the rotational losses of an EV transmission is essential to improve range. Whilst bearing and gear losses are well understood, the interaction between rotating components and transmission fluid rarely exploited other than reducing lubricant viscosity. Effective methods for modelling drag and fluid transfer around a transmission have not robustly existed previously.

Converting electrical power into mechanical power to drive a fluid pump is wasteful. However, in tightly packaged EV transmissions where thermal cooling is limited it is essential to manage the lubricant. A novel method for passively moving fluid around an EV transmission with low losses has been developed. The system uses existing components in the gearbox to move fluid in a controlled manner. The cost savings of using this technology can be used directly elsewhere to improve vehicle range.

In order to iterate through potential design solutions a suitable computer based modelling approach had to be developed. A new smoothed particle hydrodynamics approach was created to predict the fluid movement and the drag level on the remaining components. A correlation of this approach was carried out with real world testing to prove its validity.

Overview of MDO & Methodologies for Meeting the Challenges for Efficient MDO Execution
Presentation by Dr. Royston Jones, Executive VP, European Operations & Global CTO at Altair.

As products increase in complexity, design becomes more multi-disciplinary and the requirement to efficiently deploy Multi-Disciplinary Optimization (MDO) becomes a significant design differentiator. Increasingly, industry is successfully performing MDO studies to achieve optimized balanced design allowing trade-offs between mass, performance and even cost.

In order to impact the product development process, MDO results must deliver to project timescales and in order to achieve this, a number of challenges need to be overcome. Typical challenges consist of efficiently performing MDO pre- and post-processing and solution activities. To meet these challenges, Altair has utilized its expertise in model management, large dataflow, job submittal, optimization and visualization, leveraging HyperWorks technologies to create a vertically integrated end-to-end process software tool.

Defining Positioning System for Heavy Lift Barge with AcuSolve
Presentation by Pawel Sadowski, Technical Support Manager at DES ART.

Even during building roads your approach may be different from the standard one. The nature often forces engineers to use their creativity and go beyond typical projects. This leads to some unique, futuristic structures or some additional projects that have to be done and at the end are invisible. Our project of heavy lift barge contains in the second group. One part of this project was to proof that positioning system is sufficient to keep right position at the sea even during unfavorable weather conditions. For this purpose we perform numerous CFD analyses using AcuSolve. Computational cases differed in angle of flow, speed of flow and configuration of the barge. As a result of these all analyses defined working area of positioning system.
