Panel Discussion: Simulation Strategies for a Sustainable Future

General discourse as it pertains to sustainability is often centered around topics such as global warming or carbon footprint. However, product design and lifecycle considerations can and should be looked at as key facilitators of sustainability. From generating lightweight designs to the selection of material, to parts reusability and durability, the product life cycle from concept to end-of-life, and the actions taken therein, form the basis of being sustainable. Join us and our panelists as we discuss the role simulation plays in driving the selection of efficient and sustainable materials, evaluating control strategies to avoid critical operating conditions that lead to excessive aging of batteries, and minimizing the number of physical tests and prototypes while ensuring durability considerations are met.

E-Motor Thermal Load: How Simulation Helps to Overcome Challenges

An increase of the e-motor operating temperature above critical levels reduces especially the life expectancy of the insulation material, which potentially results in the destruction of the motor. High temperatures also increase winding resistance. Cooling decreases the resistance and electric losses respectively. Lower electric losses reduce the amount of (expensive) copper required to achieve the targeted machine performance. The presentation shows how CFD simulation helps to determine the thermal load of electric motors and how to develop the optimum cooling system for maximum performance and life time.

A CAE based approach for SnR Detection and Prevention

This webinar provides an overview of a typical CAE based approach for SnR detection and prevention and demonstrates how this is achieved through a Risk and Root Cause analysis in Altair Squeak and Rattle Director. We will also discuss how to increase the complexity and fidelity of the model with the progression of development, and the importance of exploring multiple loading scenarios. Throughout the entire process, structural optimization is there as a helpful tool to find solutions to the problems we encounter on the way or even prevent them from the start.


SnR Prevention Start at Concept and Design Phase

If you are a designer, Squeak and Rattle test engineer or a maybe just a beginner to the SnR Analysis world, this presentation is for you. We will showcase how you can benefit from simulation as early as the concept design phase by performing a CAD based modal analysis combined with a material compatibility analysis, and perform a Screening Risk Assessment which provides upfront results using a streamlined and easy-to-use workflow in Squeak and Rattle Director.
