Forming Simulation of Woven Composite Fibers and Its Influence on Crash Performance
The automotive industry, in its constant quest for weight reduction, is increasingly considering composite materials as a substitute for sheet metal components to meet future fuel consumption standards. However, composite forming processes are expensive and difficult to control because of the complexity of the material behavior with fiber and matrix layers or plies and its dependency on many parameters, such as non-linearity of tensile stiffness, effect of shear rate, temperature and friction. Hence, numerical simulation could be a viable approach to predict material behavior during composite forming. The objective of this study is to highlight capabilities of RADIOSS™ to simulate forming simulation of composite plies made from woven fibers, each ply modeled as a layer of woven fibers along two directions of anisotropy, warp and weft. For validation the well-known double dome model published in NUMISHEET’05 proceedings is used. The compared result is the shear angle after stamping that is, the final angle between warp and weft fibers, at several prescribed points on the ply. The variation of this angle has a strong impact on material characteristics which severely deteriorates when a critical value is reached. Hence, a study on crash simulations is performed, after mapping fibers angles from stamping simulation.

Meshing the Human Lumbar Spine
HyperWorks customer Jeff Harris from NuVasive has used HyperMesh to solid hybrid mesh consecutive human vertebrae and discs from a patient bone scan.

The RL-GO (Ray-Launching Geometrical Optics) solver was extended and improved in terms of speed and accuracy, and a new interface to import measured near-field antenna data from MVG/Starlab will be presented.

An Automated Head Impact Process Setup for Automobile Instrument Panel (IP) Application
FMVSS 201 procedure originally rolled out in 1968 by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Administration to protect the automobile occupants from fatal injury during the crash. Since the beginning of the law, the automobile interior safety has become considerably more challenging for manufacturer to meet FMVSS 201 standard criteria. During the course of instrument panels (IP) development, engineers are heavily relied on computer simulation to optimize the design for a more robust design. Based on FMVSS 201, there are an infinite number of target points on the instrument panels that must be tested for head impact performance. Therefore, this becomes not only costly but it is impossible for the manufacturer to test all possible target points using the current conventional process.

The Use of Suimulation (FEKO) to Investigate Antenna Performance on Mobile Platforms
Wireless technologies have proliferated onto automotive platforms as part of infotainment, telematics and active safety initiatives. These wireless solutions present engineers design challenges in the area of applied electromagnetics in terms of antenna design, antenna placement, electromagnetic compatibility and wave propagation. The Applied EMAG and Wireless Lab at Oakland University possesses an outdoor vehicle-level antenna range (80 MHz - 6,000 MHz) and full-wave electromagnetic field solvers with high end computers to solve these issues. This presentation will highlight some of the past and recent research projects conducted in my lab that relied on a full-wave electromagnetic field solver to investigate the issue and subsequently be validated with measurements.

A Multifunctional Aerospace Smart Skin Emerges from Computational Models and Physical Experiments
The capability to assess the current or future state of the health of an aircraft to improve safety, availability, and reliability while reducing maintenance costs has been a continuous goal for decades. Many companies, government agencies, and academic institutions have become interested in Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) and a growing effort of research into “smart” vehicle sensing systems has emerged. Methods to detect damage to aircraft materials and structures have historically relied on visual inspection during pre-flight or post-flight operations by flight and ground crews. More quantitative non-destructive investigations with various instruments and sensors have traditionally been performed when the aircraft is out of operational service during major scheduled maintenance. Through the use of reliable sensors coupled with data monitoring, data mining, and data analysis techniques, the health state of a vehicle can be detected in-situ.

Monash Motorsport takes advantage of optimization and additive manufacturing technologies and wins again!
Since their first Australian SAE Student Racing competition in 2000, the Monash Motorsport team has steadily improved the performance of their race car. Recently the students discovered the benefits of combining Altair‘s OptiStruct optimization technology and 3D printing. Based on an initial prototype rear hub design from the 2013 car, the team proceeded to pursue titanium front hubs and uprights to decrease the car’s unsprung mass. This was a tough challenge, since the former design was already made of lightweight aluminum. To tackle this, Monash Motorsport employed Altair’s optimization technology OptiStruct to design and optimize a titanium upright, which was then produced using additive manufacturing technology from CSIRO. As a result, the students were able to reduce the component’s weight by a further 30 percent whilst maintaining the component stiffness and reducing the development time and costs.

Optimal Design Exploration Using Global Response Surface Method: Rail Crush
As design exploration and optimization methods have become commonly accepted across a range of industries, such as aerospace,
automotive or oil and gas, they are frequently utilized as standard practice to efficiently produce designs and aid critical engineering decisions. The widespread acceptance of these methods coupled with the power of modern computing has led to applications across a range of design problems and ever-increasing complexity. The size and scope of this expansion continually pushes the boundaries of existing exploration and optimization methods. Furthermore, a complete exploration of the optimal design space includes computationally intensive features such as multi-objective optimization, to understand the trade-off between competing objectives, and global optimization, to avoid local extrema.


Accurate Simulation Modelling of Sports Impact Scenarios using HyperWorks
One of the key research activities within the institute is concerned with the development of enhanced human surrogate models for sports personal protective equipment (PPE) research. Impact surrogates are used to provide a representation of a living human which can then be impacted under injurious loading conditions such as a ball impacting the thigh to understand the response behaviour.

Optimizing Cooling Passages in Turbine Blades
Turbine blades have internal passages that provide cooling during operation in a high
temperature engine. The design of the cooling passages is critical to achieve near uniform
temperature of the blade during operation. The temperature of the blade is dependent on the thermal properties of the blade material as well as the fluid dynamics of the air circulating in the cooling passages. Computational optimization methods have successfully been applied to design lighter and more efficient structures for many aerospace structures. An extension of these techniques is now applied to guiding the thermal design of a turbine blade by designing the optimal cooling passage layout. Optimization methods will be applied to determine the optimum pattern of the cooling passages and then to optimize the size of the individual cooling passages. The goal is to produce a more thermally efficient turbine blade design that will produce blades with longer lives and better performance.
