Using Finite Element Models Beyond Their Upper Frequency Limits in Electric Vehicle Applications
A hybrid finite element formulation that extends the applicability of finite element models to higher frequencies will be discussed. It is based on reducing the size of the finite element model significantly by replacing major parts of the model with equivalent dynamic impedances during the finite element calculations. The Component Mode Synthesis (CMS) approach is combined with analytical solutions of dynamic and static modes for computing appropriate values for the dynamic impedances. The power dissipated by the dynamic impedance elements provides the link to an energy finite element model of the omitted parts for computing their response. Theoretical aspects, the functionality of the implementation, and comparisons between simulations and experiments for production automotive and rotorcraft systems will be presented.
The Next Generation Data Scientist
Gartner recently released their 'Top 10 Data & Analytics Trends for 2020' where they stated that "the collision of data and analytics will increase interaction and collaboration between historically separate data and analytics roles. This impacts not only the technologies and capabilities provided, but also the people and processes that support and use them. The spectrum of roles will extend from traditional data and analytics to information explorer and citizen developer as examples".
With Forbes predicting that there will be a shortage of at least 250,000 data scientists in the US alone by 2024, how will our data-driven enterprises survive? Should we empower citizen data scientists and embody a data democratisation approach or is there a better way to optimise our data science teams?

Altair HyperView™ – Design Sensitivity Analysis Utility
Design Sensitivity Analysis Utility
• Design sensitivity represents a change in response with respect to a change in a design variable, which is typically used for optimization.
• Design sensitivity can also be used as a diagnostic tool to understand what components in the system (through associated properties referenced by design variables) have controlling influence on the response in question.
• Traditionally, design sensitivity can be cumbersome to request for frequency response analysis. It can only be requested as a part of an optimization run, where multiple design responses have to be created for each frequency response at each analysis frequency; objective function and constraints have to be defined and set in specific ways to force sensitivity output at all analysis frequencies for all design variables.
• In HyperGraph 2D, the Design Sensitivity Analysis utility allows you to plot and rank design sensitivity curves from an OptiStruct dsa.0.h3d file.
Tips & Tricks
Altair HyperView™ – OrderCut Analysis Utility
OrderCut Analysis Utility
• OrderCut Analysis utility generates and post-processes engine order related data from an OptiStruct or Nastran frequency response analysis that contains either RPM-based loading subcases or order-based loading subcases.
• Background, engine related noise, and vibration problems are typically linked to engine orders that are harmonic multiples of the engine’s fundamental firing frequency.
• Understanding the order content of the problem signal is a way to identify the physical phenomenon that is causing the problem.
• To solve the problem, you can adjust the design parameters to modify the engine operation, which in turn reduces the problem orders.
Tips & Tricks
Altair HyperView™ – Multiple Sample Analysis Utility
Multiple Sample Analysis Utility
• This utility allows to post-process results from a Multiple Sample Analysis (MSA), including plotting a spread of responses (+/-95% and mean).
• You can choose Structures or Loads MSA processes:
o Structures MSA processes results from a randomization of modal and connection parameters.
o Loads MSA processes results from a randomization of wheel imbalance forces.
• Sensitive parameters filtering is also supported for both Structures MSA and Loads MSA.
