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™.

Altair's New, Modern Fatigue Solution: HyperLife

Before a product ever goes to market, companies must understand how their products will behave during and beyond their expected use cycle. Building a brand perception of product quality relies on consistently durable products, regardless of when and where they are produced, time after time. Additionally, high development costs and expensive warranty claims can be mitigated by integrating fatigue simulation into the product development process. There are many tools on the market to simulate the durability and fatigue life of products, but what sets some solutions apart? Learn how HyperLife enables you to differentiate your products through quality and beat competitors to market with quicker engineering decisions.

Predicting and Eliminating Squeak & Rattle Noise in Vehicle Interiors with PSA Peugeot Citroën

During the development of new vehicles, PSA Peugeot Citroën Group (PSA) wanted to take the lead in using simulation technology to detect squeak and rattle noise problems, before physical testing was possible. The initiative led to a collaboration between PSA’s Method Development Engineering team and Altair ProductDesign to explore the use of simulation technologies and numerical optimization methods at an early stage of development. This 60-minute Webinar, jointly presented by PSA and Altair, discusses the project and its progress, describing the results achieved through the application of an “E-Line method” approach and detailing how the newly established processes have been integrated into PSA’s existing Virtual Development Process (VDP).

Meaningful Results Earlier in the Design Process with SimSolid

Especially in the early design stages of product development, variants change quicker than conventional FEA tools and processes can keep up with. This is even more apparent when full assemblies or complex structures have to be evaluated. Simulation can be a powerful tool to help inform product development decisions, but you need fast, accurate results in order to react at the speed of design.
