Beginners guide to doing (1) Base Shake analysis and (2) Multi-input analysis within the Frequency Domain

Frequency domain methods for fatigue analysis and/or for general random response analysis have experienced a resurgence over the last few years due to improved technology and better computational processes. Today, a complete range of models can be processed from full vehicle systems to local component systems. Single input BASE shake loads and multiple correlated input loads can now be easily processed by the User. These loading conditions can also contain random PSDs and/or deterministic components like a sine sweep. Different kinds of fatigue life calculations can be done including both Stress-Life and Strain-Life approaches.

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.

Improving Truck Ride Comfort Using Vehicle Simulations

In order to improve low-frequency truck ride comfort, it is important to derive optimal Cab/Chassis Suspension & Damping values by evaluating the vehicle vibration characteristics caused by road surface condition. In this study, the ISO 8608 standard road profiles are implemented using Compose and MotionSolve. The vibration characteristics and the effect of design parameters are studied. The ride comfort performance is evaluated using the ISO 2631. Heavy Duty Truck (10x4 Cargo, Payload 25ton) is constructed with a flexible multi-body dynamics model using MotionSolve. The Quarter Car and Half Car’s vibration models are constructed with Compose and MotionSolve and the possibility of preliminary ride comfort evaluation was studied.

Boosting Your GPU Performance in a Complex HPC Environment

Managing high-performance computing (HPC) servers is not an easy task, and the addition of graphics processing units (GPUs) often presents even more complexity to the configuration. As such, it’s typical for organizations to turn to optimization tools to boost the performance of computational accelerators like GPUs. Case in point is the Information Technology Center, the oldest academic supercomputing center in Japan, at the University of Tokyo. To meet its growing demand for executing biology, biomechanics, biochemistry, and deep learning applications, the site invested in in NVIDIA® Tesla® P100 GPUs to increase utilization and productivity. Watch the webinar recording to learn how Altair, in conjunction with NVIDIA, collaborated to provide the University of Tokyo with a solution that effectively monitors its GPU use and provides enhanced workload power management capabilities within Altair PBS Professional™.
