5 ways to optimize your design

Gauge optimization, size and shape, and shell optimization, can be used to improve an existing design without altering its overall architecture. 3D topology optimization can be used when a significant re-design is desired because it identifies the optimal load paths of a structure and recommend material reduction. The material layout produced in the 3D topology is then interpreted into a concept design which is dimensioned and fine-tuned with the gauge, size, and shape approaches resulting in a final structure. Do you want to learn how to execute all the techniques mentioned? Step-by-step tutorials are available now for download!

Coupled Electro-Magnetic and Acoustic Simulation of an In-Wheel Electric Motor

At Elaphe, the engineers have been facing the NVH challenges from the very beginning. The topology of this electric motor, which on the one hand enables the team to use the otherwise empty space inside the wheel, can on the other hand, result in some new and unexplored NVH challenges. The experience over the years has proven that NVH is a bottleneck in the design cycle of Elaphe's motors and this was the main motivation for a more automated and more user-friendly NVH simulation workflow. Within the NVH, noise radiation was the area Elaphe was most interested in.

OptiStruct Lessons Learned from a Cambered Structure with Welds made Post-Decambering using Modchg

Problem Description - A pre-cambered trailer is loaded to nearly flat under 1g down by a permanent payload (large steel transformer oil reservoir box). - As the payload is loaded, the trailer is 'de-cambered." They payload is then welded in place to the trailer. - Other operational load cases are applied as the subsequent load cases to the de-cambering load. Topology optimization is conducted with responses from both de-cambering load case and subsequent load cases. - All subsequent analysis must take into account the de-cambering held in place by the welds. The de-camber is a "large displacement" formulation and the loading happens via sliding contact with the payload box.

Vibro-Acoustic Response of Multi-Layer Systems: Creating a Condensed Model to Reduce Mesh Size and Calculation Time

A possible way of reducing the calculation time and mesh size in vibro acoustic response is to condense the description of multi-layer plates into a single, equivalent plate representation. The plate is then modeled using frequency dependent parameters in visco-elastic models. The webinar will present several representations of this approach applied to constrained layers, multi-layer plates as well as ribbed and stiffened plates.
