HyperWorks Improves Development Processes in Automotive Industry

In 2008 PWO Germany (Progress-Werk Oberkirch AG) had to develop and produce a new steel made automotive cross car beam (CCB) for the dash board of a new car. PWO received the CAD model, the design space definition and other pre-defined standards of the component from the customer and developed and produced the fitting cross beam based on this information. PWO used the HyperWorks Suite to develop the component. HyperMesh was used to transfer the CAD model into a FEA model, which was then used to run dedicated analysis and simulation tasks. To fulfill the requirements for crash and modal analysis, the company used OptiStruct to optimize the component, RADIOSS and other external solver to run the calculations and HyperView for the post processing. HyperForm was used to check the production feasibility of the individual components and for metal forming simulation tasks. It was important for PWO to have a software suite available that could cover all simulation tasks within one graphical user interface and licensing system.

Innovative Design Analysis Solutions to Handle the Complexity of Modern Structures

This is a press article published by CAD User Magazine in June 2009. "The signature buildings that architects love to put up these days might be designed to enhance the architect’s reputation along with the skyline of the client city, but their increasing complexities of shape pose significant challenges for the builders. In the first instance such large projects are never single sourced. They rely on close integration between a number of partners, each addressing significant issues. Secondly, they come with demands for shorter development times with increased pressure to reduce engineering costs (engineering, because of the complexity of the projects, being a major cost element)."

ADAS Simulation Under Severe Vibrations

Automotive radars are becoming standard equipment on vehicles. Their purpose is to adjust the distance between vehicles and/or alert the driver when dangerous situations arise. Several antenna architectures are used to cover the different safety functions in complex bumper/car chassis environment where the side effects become more and more significant on the radar performances. Hence, automotive radar integration process becomes a very important topic. Weak radar integration will generate gain loss, high side lobes levels and angular errors. Those degradations will impact the radar range, the main radar axis (BSE) and the radar detection quality (resolution, ambiguity, discrimination).

Addressing Design Development Challenges Through Simulation Driven Platform

Automotive suppliers are facing many challenges in having in-house simulation capabilities compared to that of OEM’s. One of the ways to overcome these challenges is to invest in simulation technologies that require an affordable initial investment, the ownership cost of which is low, the codes are reliable & proven, and the suite of tools provide suppliers access to a broad range of solvers (a true multi-physics environment) helping them pick and choose the solvers as per their simulation requirements. In the early stage of in-house simulation implementation at Endurance Technologies, HyperWorks was being adopted primarily for pre and post processing due to its extraordinary FE modeling solutions. With constant support, Altair team has helped Endurance in exploring and implementing various HyperWorks solvers at Endurance Technologies.

Mahle Discuss Its Use Of The Automated Reporting Director
